Saw a new Audi S7 when going to the free car wash (located at the Audi dealer) yesterday, and a new S8 this morning.

Was out this afternoon and looked at a couple cars for kicks. Looked at the Fiat 500 Abarths - dealer had a decent selection of coupes and cabrios. Salesman was very enthusiastic - a hardcore gearhead, and even started their souped up (chip, etc) model in the showroom (!) for me. Neat car. Also went to see the RLX - those are some funky lights, even in person. Car was a base model, had a 2K ADM (hahaha) and stickered at ~55K - going to be a tough sell, I think. Really has the aesthetics of a super sized Accord.

Drove past the Tesla plant this weekend driving back from San Jose. Saw a line of 4 car carriers full of the Model S. I wonder how many they still have backordered...

Saw a black Cross-Cabriolet Murano, top down. Surprised I didn't see it twice since they were speeding pretty good and we saw 5 or 6 people pulled over by the cops.

Remember those (or if you're in Canada or Mexico, perhaps you are driving one)? Spotted one this afternoon. No idea what year it was, but couldn't be any newer than 2007 per Wiki, since the Rogue replaced it in Canada that year.

Our local town police have acquired a Ford Taurus Police Interceptor, a "plain wrapper" w no markings or roof lights but painted a similar blue-gray that matches the rest of the fleet, mostly Crown Vics (and an old-style Explorer). I made it as a police unit when I spotted the big push bar and the plain-jane wheels.
Meanwhile the NH State Police seem to have ditched their old CVs in favor of Dodge Chargers. I'll bet they're a lot nicer to drive.
Elsewhere I've seen what appear to be the RWD Chevy police units (I think the model name is Caprice). It's hard to say, in police livery they could also be recent Impalas.

Lots of RAV4s. Makes me remember I have to shop for one in a few months when my Mother's current one comes off lease. At least the Yota dealer is close to the house.
