The real question is: Did they park there intentionally?

Volkswagen Saveiro (coupé-utility version of the Fox) with an aftermarket double-cab conversion


Ford Pampa, another Brazilian coupé-utility, also with an aftermarket double-cab



There was also a Chevette-based coupé-utility here, and that was the only one I've seen converted to double-cab. Notice the rigid tonneau at what was left of the bed...


Fiat Strada, or "poor man's Ram"

I stopped in Cedar Flats to get the clear Premium, and this was at the pumps.

It's a good place to stop. You'll notice there aren't any curbs to negotiate. They made a left and headed up-river.

My friend in Washington state sold his Ferrari F430 to someone from LA. The guy flew in from LA to pick it up. In December. He was going to drive it back. Uhhh, you realize there is like snow, and mountains etc, right? Guy was new to the country and didn't have a clue, figured it would be no problem getting it home. Never heard back from the guy, so he either made it or plummeted off a cliff somewhere. I filed that one under the "More money than brains" column.

I haven't seen one yet.

Also, those old coupe/utility cars are something.

Spotted these ones yesterday in my hometown, but they're registered in Argentina.

Turkish 2nd-gen Fiat Doblò, going to America in 2015 as Ram ProMaster City.



Thai Mitsubishi L200 3rd-gen. The most noticeable difference from the Brazilian version are the exterior lights. Brazilian ones had rounded lights.

I had seen a car 2 weeks ago in Eaton Ohio. Green hatchback, not sure if 2 or 4 door. It had a grill block, air dam, rear defuser, and some vortex generators on the back glass. Does anyone know who's car this might be, if they are on here?

I saw a teal Civic VX go by last week. Looked original/stock, driven by an older guy. Rare as unicorns in these parts (rust belt)!

Spotted in San Francisco. No idea what it is, other than hilarious.
