Really lousy shot, my wife took it, but I was extremely surprised to see a Mustang EV on the road today.

Looked pretty good.

Two for one! Mercedes-Benz W124 Taxi (pre-1993 model) and some BMW non-EV prototype (possibly new 2er Gran Tourer?). W124 taxis are a rare sight, because they've been phased out due to emissions. Surprised to see this one still driving around, it does not have emissions-exempt historic plates.

Hope someone tells the Mustang driver to fasten his gas cap before it rains.

Nice '66.

I loved the Datsuns as a kid!

Yesterday I drove 9hrs (I-20 across SC to I-95 north to Kenly, NC and back). Tons of traffic but most of the regular silver/grey/black/white SUVs and sedans.

Saw a yellow SSR. New beetle with the top down, a Camaro with top down, plenty of convertibles with tops up.

Nice, a Mk I. That was BMC's #1 seller for a while, exported all over the place. Lots of fun to drive, especially the MG variant: peppy little 1,275 twin-carb engine and handled like a dream.

I had an '67 Austin 1100 quite similar to that, but it was a station wagon...rear doors opened like barn doors.  At the time $2.00 worth of gas would take me to work and back for a week.  It had two problems though, it kept chipping valves...it took a couple of hours to remove the head, replace the valve and put it back together.  The other problem was the Hydrolastic Suspension.  It would slowly leak the fluid and the car would gradually sink lower and lower towards the ground.

Otherwise, kind of fun.

The guy who ran the Hong Kong office of my dad's firm had one. He had an Alpinair air-conditioning unit retrofitted because, well it's Hong Kong. He had to switch off the AC going up hills because the car would stall otherwise. It also did no favors to the car's chronic overheating problem.

Just in general, the amateurs in BMC/BL management were too stupid to bother adapting their cars to different climates. So the Japanese kindly stepped in.

A Chevette hatchback. Woman was loading bunches of those little potted flowers into the back at Lowe's.

Today: Datsun pickup, the kind with the sideview mirrors way up in front of the front wheels.
