    I was buzzing down the second steepest hill in town when I saw a Prius v followed by a regular Prius liftback buzzing up the hill the opposite way. Just neat to see all 3 models together in the same 2 seconds.

    I couldn't tell you which model, but I saw a Grumman twin-engined flying boat going past me in S.E. Pennsylvania the other day. It was headed northeast.

    The next town over does a nice airshow in early june, but this wasn't that.

    PBY Catalina was a much better looking sea plane ... but treading shark infested waters ... the grumman would do just fine.

    Hyundai SUV, the big one. Palisade? Current generation, was clean enough to be a '24.

    Anyway, it had a very ornate purple and white tiger's face airbrushed on the hood. Oversized, with the mane sort of rolling down on the front fenders.

    I don't often run into that level of commitment in airbrush art, especially on newer models. I was impressed.


    I also saw one of these:

    Parked outside of one of these:

    Both first generation models I suppose...
