Now that there is a lot of Mirages. There were 3 or 4 more rows behind the ones you can see, and the rows kept going way passed what you can see in the pic. I couldn't stand far enough back to get a wide enough shot of them all. I think every single one of them was either white or black, all brand new not even delivered to the dealers yet.

Where the heck was that - near the auction lot?

I heard they had a big Canadian fleet order, maybe these are those cars. Would explain the colour scheme.

Yup it was actually in the back 40 of the auction, they rent out storage space to quite a few of the manufacturers for new car storage. A fleet order would make sense with the colours. Next time I am there I will have a look and see if they are all automatics, if so then yup it's probably the fleet you heard about.

This might not qualify as eco, but with a Brazilian aftermarket double-cab conversion based in a regular-cab short-bed F250 with one of those smaller turbodiesels available only in Brazilian-assembled units it may still make more sense compared to the American ones with the huge Powerstroke...



Yesterday I saw an Autozam Revue (Mazda 121) for the first time.

The real question is: Did they park there intentionally?

I think they got "fishtail" confused with "boattail."

They did. Probably because it was a front row spot, though. They didn't enter the park early, as they are not pulled in, they came in and took the spot after someone left. Still humourous with the H2 there.
