Have you seen something worth sharing with the automotive fans here?
I live in a fairly small city and there are very few exotic cars here. In fact, we often joke that our residents are required to drive cars that are white, black, or metallic colored, because that's mostly what you seen on the car lots.
BUT....two days ago I passed a 1930s-era Rolls Royce being towed on a trailer. That was pretty darn cool!

Around my parts "interesting cars" usually doesn't involve Ferraris. This is an actual car I saw on I-64 between Louisville and Evansville in October. They were also serving in their lane while playing with their phone

That made me think of the (very!) old TV show, Beverly Hillbillies. The theme song is now an ear worm planted in my brain:

Come and listen to my story about a man named Jed
A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
And then one day he was shootin at some food,
And up through the ground come a bubblin crude.

Oil that is,
black gold,
Texas tea.


Well the first thing you know ol' Jed's a millionaire,
The kinfolk said "Jed move away from there"
They said "Californy is the place you ought to be"
So they loaded up the truck and they moved to Beverly

Hills, that is.
Swimmin pools,
movie stars.


The Beverly Hillbillies!

Well, with all of the equipment that they are carrying, I imagine that they could prepare a meal--or perhaps even a banquet--in their old Oldsmobile. Were you able to see exactly what they were serving?

Today, a Buick Reatta, and a nice 2002tii.

Come to think of it, I see the occasional 2002 and sometimes a 1600, but don't recall seeing the old 320i in a long time.

Not today or yesterday, but in the last couple of months ... Carrera GT
918 with Weissach package
Pinto hatch back in great condition (which I guess means it's worth $500 instead of $50).
AMC Pacer (worthless trivia - the passenger side door is a couple inches longer than the driver side door).
Fiero GT

I loved the 2002tii and use to occasionally spot them around Seattle, it's been a few years now though. Thought many times about purchasing and restoring one, but at this point in my life I rely to much on the modern vehicle comforts.

Spotted my first 2002 in a garage about two weeks ago. Most likely wasn't running, but appeared to be in good shape.

Came across a nice house with a Restored Model T, 70's Continental, and possibly a 60's Continental in the driveway. Decided to drive back yesterday and the 60's vehicle was still there. In the garage was a Audi Q5, newer F-150, 70's Mustang Boss, 50's Ford pickup.

A 1978 Chevy Corvette Indy 500 Pace Car edition. Parked in a front yard about 3 miles from my house, with a "For Sale" sign in the window. Later found it on Craigslist for $12,900.
