You are in the Classic Cars
What is this discussion about?

I think I needed to create a message board where we talk about crazy old obscure cars that we saw on the way to work, in the neighborhood, or at the junkyard.
2 blocks from my house, someone owns a red Yugo with a flapping American flag hanging on its rear!
On my way to work, I saw both a DeLorean and an AMC Spirit 4WD station wagon with wood paneling.
How bout you?

Saw a Ferrari 360 Modena the other night. For more details, see "Ferrari sighting" under the "Ferrari the Ultimate Classic" topic

This isn't anything exotic, but it was somewhat surprising -
I saw a newer Saturn SC coupe with the full "rice" treatment - giant rear wing, coffee can muffler, clear tail-lights, lowered suspension, etc... It's the first time I've seen a Saturn like that.

I've never seen a Saturn SC like that.
andys, I never noticed that message board.

A what I thought was a 90s Chev. Corsica
Looked closer and it was a Pontiac Tempest.
Rear end the same as chev. but it had a
pontiac-esc double egg crate nose. It had
Canadian plates on it..........geo

Has anyone ever seen a Pontiac Firefly?

...but there was a bad horror movie called "Valentine" that came out in 2001, that had a Firefly in it. I had to do a double-take at first, because it just looked like an old Chevy Sprint. The grille was a bit different though.
I wouldn't recommend renting the movie just to see the car though, unless you're into bad horror movies!

Yes I saw a Pontiac Firefly at least once when I was up in Toronto, Ontario last week. The Firefly is the Canadian market version of the late Geo/Chevy Metro. Also saw a couple of new Lamborghini Murcielagos as well.
Here in my neck of the woods, Ferrari Modena 360's are pretty common sight as well as new Mini Coopers, etc.
By the way, during the last 6 months I have seen 3 times a white Mercedes A140 and even a new Smart driven around a Mercedes Benz dealer.
Thi sis the happening place if you want to see fancy cars and beaters sharing road space.

"I seen a peanut stand,
Heard a rubber band,
Seen a needle that winked its eye!
But I'd be done seen
When I see a Fi-i-re fly..."
Sorry. Dumbo, you know. Great picture.
Not this AM, but last Friday, I happened on a 4-door Maverick with a carriage roof, wire rims, whitewalls and a full-on gold package. Oh yeah, it had hood scoops too.
