Spotted this Mitsubishi van this morning


New Chevy Cruze with the 1.4L turbocharged engine


Brazilian equivalent to the GMC Sierra C2500, fitted with a locally-sourced 4.2L straight-6 turbodiesel and a 5-speed manual transmission.

Check. It IS a Mazda - at least their version of the Autozam AZ-1 kei car.

Autozam is also Mazda.

Wickedly cool.

unicorn iMiev

I just saw a black iMiev in Brockville. It can't be here by chance, because the nearest dealer is basically beyond the car's range.

Artist's conception:



(Shown with a fleet of Brockville-built Atlas motor cars.)

I'm surprised the driver didn't stop when he saw me staring as it drove by. I'm probably the only person here who would know what it is!
