This isn't nearly as interesting as most of the other posts, but I thought I'd share it anyway. I met my aunt on the road today in her 1993 Honda Civic that looks like it just came out of the showroom. She's 79 years old and she has a late model Honda Odyssey, so the Civic lives in the garage most of the time. It only has 105k miles on it. I'd love to buy it if it wasn't an automatic (and if she was willing to part with it).

Yesterday, I saw a Jaguar F-Pace (SUV/CUV) for the first time. I also saw two Teslas yesterday. Beautiful cars.

Hey, that counts. A cherry, 1-owner, low-mileage '93 Civic in the family? That definitely counts.

Thanks. I just wish it wasn't the DX model (no power windows or locks, cruise control, even A/C and stereo were dealer installed).

The funny thing is that she and I bought the same car ('93 Civic 4-door) in the same color (Harvard Blue Pearl) within two weeks of each other. I had no idea that she had bought one and vice versa. But mine was the EX manual and hers the DX automatic.

That was probably the best car I ever had. I commuted 54-miles one-way to college, worked full-time at a grocery store and delivered pizza four nights per week. I bought it in July 1993 (about five weeks after high school graduation) and owned it until September 1996. I put 188,000 miles on it three years and two months! I had an engine compression test done before I sold it to a friend. It was still in the 'normal' range with no signs of wear. I used Castrol Syntec from day one, so that probably helped. My friend kept it a few years and sold it with 245k miles on it. He said it was still purring like a kitten.

I'd do almost anything to have that Civic and my '94 Acura Legend back!

I saw a new Mercedes-Benz S550 today (base price- $96,600, sticker can go over $130k). I remember it very well because I almost rear-ended it in traffic. It's probably time to increase the Property Damage Liability coverage on my auto insurance. $100k has been sufficient for so long, but there are a lot of $100k+ out there now....

One nice thing about being in the Seattle area is the number of super cars on the road. Here in Sammamish you will see 2-3 Tessa's in every parking lot, but every day all over the area there will be a few Lamborghini, Ferraris and Maseratis. I personally am more of a classic car fan, but with our weather they usually only show up on the roads in summer. The other day, between snow storms on a dry day a Duesenberg went by, very unusual this time of year.

I see luxury cars regularly but a badly parked Bentley SUV caught my eye (rear tire 1 ft over the parking spot line)....300K for an ugly SUV and you can't even park it straight?

Winner though was the new Lincoln Continental.......2017 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL

The door handles are mounted in the chrome window trim......it is laughably bad! I saw it then did a double take on the car and couldn't believe Lincoln thought that was a good idea!
