I thought GM rounded all of these up and told the owners that their cars went to go live on a farm.

^Most of them, around 40 of them escaped the big charging port in the sky.

This one lives in the Regional Technology Center building at Mott Community College. It usually sits in the lobby at the southwest entrance. It appears to have some smashed bugs on the nose. I thought that GM  only leased them ,so they could maintain control over them.

I will get better photos when it is moved out of the corridor

Spotted my dream car in the wild, a Lexus LF-A cruising in the carpool lane in traffic. Not enough room for him to let that engine sing but it still made my day.

Saw a Pontiac Solstice coupe yesterday. Not enough time to grab a picture though. I didn't even realize there was such a thing!

Yup - 1200 of them made very late in the production run - I bought mine after the factory was shut down.  In the drivewy beside stablemate Z4M coupe.

I saw one of those coupes just last week, if there were 1200 it will probably be the only time I see one. 

I have seen 3-4 Solstice roadsters and a Saturn Sky in the last few weeks.

I was passed yesterday on my evening commute by a FJ Cruiser with no top.  I don't know if it was a convertible or if the roof was removed?

Berkeley cars and coffee is a little unfair since it's usually like 50% unicorns, but here are a few highlights

I saw an Isuzu Vehicross pulling a large trailer. 

Several hour later edit: Trailer was large by Vehicross standards.

I worked on an AWD GOOOLE once.


And one with the funky ABS system where the pedal was only connected to the front brakes, the rears were 100% powered by the ABS system.  (Teves, I think).  Nissan uses a similar setup in the NV vans.

I'm not so sure this is a unicorn but unlikely to see another and this seems like a good enough place to put it. 

Snapped in Maumee, OH around Toledo, OH a few weeks ago.

I saw one of these running around town:

Plymouth Arrow Pickup.

It had the graphics package but was way rustier.

Passed a Suzuki Cappuccino going the other way this morning.... guessing from Japanese classics but don't see it on their inventory.

The shop that does my work on the fleet has a good reputation for alignments and often has something interesting in the shop.

I couldn't snap a pic as I was driving, but I saw a Bricklin SV1 driving on the road yesterday lunchtime in classic orange.

I saw an older, white haired, fella driving a silver Ferrari 612 Scaglietti this morning.   He was doing about 5 mph below the speed limit with his windows down, and following way too close behind a dump truck.

I mean the 612 is kind of homely looking for a Ferrari, but it didn't deserve that.  I don't get that close to dump trucks in any of my pedestrian vehicles.

Yesterday driving home, I got behind an old lady driving an absolutely pristine gold/beige 86-90 Nissan Stanza. It looked like it just rolled off the showroom in 1987, except for the deer pelt covering the parcel shelf(?).
