I saw one of those the other day, but in pre charcoal'ed condition.
I never read anything about what caused DvD's XJ to flambé. Does anyone know?

Actually saw a Mitsu i-miev in the wild! It was even on my street. Too bad I wasn't in the Leaf at the time. 2 e-cars on the same street in the boonies of NJ has to be like alignment-of-the-planets rare.
This morn, spotted a new Infiniti JX with temp tag. Not bad looking. Reminds me alot of Lexus, though. Like an enlarged RX330.
#11204 of 11402 Don't know if it's new...

...but it's certainly unusual! I spotted a white Chrysler 300-C somebody converted into a 4-door convertible! Unfortunately, it was spoiled by a roll-bar looking device at the B-pillar.

the roll bar was probably to hold the body together.

Fairly new... parked in front of my house.. No idea whose car it was, or who they were visiting.. This is Mercedes' version of an M3 (sort of)
White with a black roof (carbon fiber or transparent.. .didn't really take time to look)
#11207 of 11402 Fusion and Impala
Sep 22, 2013 (3:58 pm)
the Impala was out on the road, and I think the first I have noticed in the wild.
Fusion not new, but I got to check out the sticker (it was in my neighbors driveway, and is a demo since he is a Ford salesman). Not bad looking. It was an SE. nicely equipped, with basically everything I needed (power drivers seat, moonroof, XM, alloys). Sticker was about 27.5K. This was a 1.5l model (odd, I thought the small engine was 1.5l).

The largest engine, NA 2.5 is base, 1.5(2014) and 2.0 turbo engines are upgrades.

Saw a new MDX with the zillion lights - looks bigger than the previous model.

Audi SQ5, there's some great sounds coming out of that one, and man did that thing move.
Fiat 500L - "The Italians are coming!"
More than a dozen new MDX's
Audi R8 Cabrio in white - Gorgeous
Couple of refreshed Volvo S60's with the new nose and flashy wheels. Classy looking car...
New BMW M6 - Sounds like the Forth of July if you are lucky to hear one at WOT...
(2) new Infiniti Q50's, both silver
A couple of new Lexus IS which the online pictures do ZERO Justice to, they look really slick in person. Best looing in the class, followed by the Q50 and new 3-series IMO
Mini Paceman, 2-door AWD
Tons of new Subaru Foresters, and a few of the revamped Outbacks with the proper round foglights out front.
