I've recently seen one of those in my hometown, with Argentinian plates. That's one of the best midsize cars ever made...

Spotted a Honda Insight 1st Gen on my bike ride today .

I don't know the year but the tires were the Bridgestone RE92 Potenza and original honda rims. And of course manual transmission.



It had this "Metro" badge, don't know exactly why...

Man that's a good looking car! Metro is just the dealership name. My CX has a faded old dealer decal from City Honda on it, right next to the CX. Some Honda "expert" was looking at the car, and was like "Oh, it's a City CX!" like that was a real thing lol.

Must...resist....urge....to....bid on.





1987 Celica, 180k KMs (112k miles), original paint, 1 owner, 5 speed, fuel injected (I don't know if they all were in '87 or not). Traded in on a new BMW a few days ago. The bag on the passenger seat is full of the owners manuals and maintenance records. Still has the original Toyota cassette deck in it. It's a bare bones model too, no A/C, no sunroof, no power locks or windows. Where I live you can get "Collector" plates for a car that's in nice shape, original condition, and is over 25 years old. Then it's only $300 a year to insure. I bet this thing would bring in some decent FE, and be cheap to insure at the same time, I could have the paint cleaned up in an afternoon and it would qualify as the rest of it is all original.

I've been trying to thin out the fleet, not add on to it!

Yup. Everyone thinks houses are so expensive here because of demand, but we all know that it's because it's worth living here to be able to find cars like this ha ha.

People don't believe me when I say "Sooner or later, EVERYTHING will show up at the auction." But it's true.





2012 Fisker with 17k KMs (10k miles). What I couldn't believe was that with mileage that low, the front tires were completely bald on it. 22 inch Good Years? Ya, those will be cheap to replace ha ha. Though if you have the bread to buy this, you can afford tires. The interiors in these cars are neat, and the car is bigger than it looks in pictures when you see one in person.

And somehow the Celica I posted above ended up in my companies name. Man, I have to look into that, must be a mistake, I wouldn't buy some old 4 cylinder, 5 speed car! ha ha.

There is is a 2011 Prius on the left but we only see a part of it.
