    Saw an original Mini on the way home today. Those tiny tires are probably as hard to find as the gen5's.

    Nice! And the M-Class is the one under covers? Guess that's the winter vehicle.

    God, you can glean that from one wheel peeking out under a car cover, lol? I do recall seeing a Mercedes Benz SUV’ish vehicle parked there.

    lol. Yup.

    Back in the day when Toyota and Honda used to use different wheel covers for different trim levels. Got pretty good at spotting wheel designs.

    I'm in L.A. again this week. So of course I've already seen another Mirai, and saw my first Subaru Solterra... B-----d cut me off hard on the 170.

    More driving around Los Angeles. I've seen two Toyota Previas in the past day. One rough enough for an appearance in Mad Max, the other clean enough to blend in with cars half its age.

    Also a BMW i7, a very pretty small electric Mercedes in a beautiful shade of green, and the real prize: a Volvo P1800 coupe.

    Out for breakfast this morning, I saw 3 different Kia EVs in the same parking lot. One was charging up at an EVgo station. It was a neat opportunity to check out their chargers. There were four in the parking lot.

    One was very small and looked like it was only set up to work with preset/prepaid charging. The other three units were much larger and had point-of-sale equipment on the front panels such that an EV renter or foreign visitor could tap a card and get a charge.

    Old silver Camry LE with antique plates in good shape. Had the boxy styling, and was about the size of today's Corolla.

    Saw a blue and a red eGV70 (or Electrified GV70 according to marketing).

    Starting to see more EV6s in my area.

    Caterham Seven. Couldn't read the model in the mirror but it did have a big "R" in it. Looking on the website, it appears most of the models have a "R" package available so it could've been any number of them.
