Random commute pics

I thought I would just start a thread where I could put random pics from my commute.

Saw this on my commute today.

That is awesome.

Polar opposite of ... the pedals.

The local college(Texas longhorns) colors are orange and white. That would be my guess for the pedal choice.

Random Commute Pic

It's hard to tell from the picture but the metro has some green astro turff all over. Did not get a chance to tell him he was killing his FE. Keep Austin weird.

That's funny. Is he a regular?

And.. is it a Forsa/Metro/Swift or a Subaru? They look pretty similar.

No that's the first time I've seen him. I think it is a metro but it was hard to tell since it was pretty far away. Note that the window is down and it was 97 degrees today. I guess he was trying to save some gas after all. Probably cheaper then a paint job.
