    I saw a 1932? T-bucket near my house yesterday. I know there's a way to tell year for year by the radiator but I'm not great at it.

    You just reminded me, I saw a clean late model Audi A8L roll past the other day and thought to myself "Ok, now that is what I always liked best about Audi."

    Right? The rolling techno machine. I miss the days when Audi did “atmospheres” for interiors.

    ooh. Nice! Would be nice to import the S660 when it becomes eligible

    2 brand new Tacomas (don't think they were the hybrids though).

    A MGB on my commute. A later year model. First I've seen with a hard top.
    Wanted one when I was younger, and why I liked the Miata.

    The neighborhood AVIS rental station has so many EVS that just came in that I noticed a bunch of Mustang BEVs last evening lining the street for quite a ways. 300 feet away from the Avis lot is a new Tesla Supercharger installation.

    Driving through there I noticed a cybertruck that looked like it was rusting and dirty. The Tesla owners have created a real mess by dumping trash at the only garbage can of the installation. Trash was scattered all over the ground around the can.

    I haven't been able to ID it, but it was gorgeous.

    Yeah I can’t tell either. Looks like a roadster style?

    Saw an Aston Martin Rapide and Ferrari 456 today. Didn’t think there was a Rapide around here.

    My first spotting. Flathead Valley City College parking lot. Electric utility CoOp meeting.

    Looks like the air suspension was lowered.
