Wow! The red wheels make it look like they must be now cheap enough that the kids are buying them to rice out. (Can you "rice out" an American car??)


Someone in my little city who lives along the "millionaire's row" owned one of those briefly. The styling will age well because it was a one-hit wonder, never updated!

I think I've only seen one BMW i8 in the wild (no camera handy).


One of my favourite eco cars. If I were rich, I'd probably have one.

Saw a 1st gen Accord hybrid parked on campus today. The Fit parked next to it probably gets better fuel economy but for some reason I've always been a fan of the original Accord hybrid.
