    Default Official Spotted Thread

    We all see interesting cars/bikes/motor vehicles on the road, or in a parking lot.

    Use this thread as a place to post cool stuff you see.

    I'll start...

    Was hunting for a parking spot at Richmond Ikea.
    Nothing available (usual), but as I drove around this particular vehicle caught my eye.
    I ended up getting a spot right up front, with zero chance of door dings (Infiniti!!!).

    Went back to snap a pic of the vehicle and the owner was there. We had a lengthy chat. He was an older gentleman but a true car enthusiast.

    Check those wheels, Racing Hart C2 three piece!!!

    Whats wrong with this picture?

    I wouldn't say anything wrong but it certainly appears to be a very custom job - something newer with a tacked on front end. Only thing wrong is the vehicles having front license plates, so ugh.

    Looks like a Sterling? Perhaps not; it looks... off. (More than the original Sterling, that is)

    Edit: Ahhh... a Sebring, I believe. Very close.

    The "door" to get in included the roof, windshield and both side windows.
    Spotted in Moose Jaw.

    Gassed up this morning in front of a sick Land Rover Defender. Took the guy two years to build, with a 95 chassis but apparently all new otherwise. (And I believe him. This thing was pristine, and obviously updated with LED lights and everything else, including a freakin radar-like antenna on the roof)

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Interesting to see this pop up on Jalopnik. Apparently it's a Bremen Sebring and some of them had a rotary engine. Weird.

    A group of GTR's passed me on highway 2 heading north on Saturday. Guessing they were heading to Edmonton for Driven. Pretty sure at least a few of the guys are on here. The lead car had a gopro mounted on the front passenger fender. I was in my '68 Chevy II. If I'm in a good rolling shot, I wouldn't mind having it All the cars looked and sounded great!

    Inspired by the jalopnik series of "survivor cars" I thought I'd share this beautiful Country Squire I found today.

    This looks to be the 65-68 sixth generation, and the badge on the fender says it has the 390 cubic inch V8, same engine as my dad's 1972 F250 would have had.

    This dude lives somewhere near me, because I see this truck around, but usually too slow to get pics. Love it, so tasteful.

    This truck has a super-duty twin too, that I might have pics of. Has to be the same dude, because, it's the same "more-is-more" theme.

    I'd like to ask him why he doesn't have chrome windshield wipers. I feel like the stock wipers are really holding this truck back from being on the cover of a magazine.
