Uh oh...



The last drive I took in the Metro, I swung past the property where I had spotted this gaggle of dead Suzukiclones a few years back.

THEY'RE GONE!

I had always figured those were my future parts cars, just conveniently parked on someone else's land.

Oops! Miscalculation. And something tells me they haven't been fixed up and put back on the road.

That means the ones I have are the only ones left in my area that I know of, dead or alive.
