I don't believe I saw...

I had a WTF moment last night. I saw my first Nissan Murano
cabriolet/convertible. The Murano softop comes third in my ugly
vehicle list behind the BMW 6-series GT and the Honda CrossTour.

Whose bright idea was that?!?

I actually liked it, believe it or not. They didn't make many of them.

I'm not surprised they didn't make many. What model year(s) were they
available?

Looks like they still are.

Gah! My eyes! :-P

Nope.

Last night I saw what was probably only the 2nd Fisker Karma that I've
seen on the roads here. I'm sure it wasn't the same one that I'd seen
previously because that one was a different color.

Ugly things, they were.

I never got the Lotus thing. I've heard they're the best cars in the
world to drive, but man, they're hideous.

Never thought I'd see one in person, but there's a Maclaren MP4-12C in
the parking lot of my office building this morning. Belongs to someone
in the office next door to us. Winter must truly be over if the owner
brought it out of storage. :-D

You need a raise, Joe, if anyone in the next office is driving a Maclaren
and you're rockin' a Nissan!  WTH?

The next office space belongs to a large pharma. It's a satellite
space of their bigger facility down the street. Not surprised someone
over there can afford it.

Man, the pops and crackles it made as it left the lot were music to my
ears!

Probably not a lot of car seats and empty juice boxes in that car, either,
if you know what I mean.

{Wheels.9.621}: Joseph Kang {jsk} Sat, 14 Mar 2015 10:31:45 EDT (1 line)

Definitely not! Kinda like my car. :-)

{Wheels.9.622}: Joseph Kang {jsk} Thu, 02 Apr 2015 10:11:16 EDT (1 line)

Saw my first BMW i8 on the road here. :D

--------

{Wheels.9.623}: Jil {rabbit} Fri, 03 Apr 2015 10:36:54 EDT (2 lines)

I love that car. Only drove a pre-production, but oh man what a
thrill.

--------

{Wheels.9.624}: Joseph Kang {jsk} Fri, 03 Apr 2015 11:36:40 EDT (1 line)

I gave the guy driving it the thumbs up.

{Wheels.9.625}: Joseph Kang {jsk} Wed, 20 May 2015 11:06:50 EDT (5 lines)

So, I recently became acquainted with someone who knows the owner of
that McLaren MP4-12C. Turns out that owner also owns two Porsche 918s
and two McLaren P1s. The guy owns at minimum USD$5M in cars.

The best part though was learning that he drives all of them.

Nice!

I have a friend who's into Ferraris. He has a garage stuffed with
them, including an Enzo. That one might be the highest-mileage one in
the world. He brought it to our BBQ one summer ...

Not sure if you saw the video or read the story but Harry Metcalf
(formerly editor of EVO in the UK) drove his Testarossa to the Sahara.
He was trying to recreate a 2000 mile road trip someone else had done
in a Testarossa in the 80s (I think).

Cool!

I totally did a double-take when I saw a late-model Ford F250 Heavy
Duty truck that had the Ford emblem on the front grille replaced with
the Audi four rings. I wish I could have taken a picture of it but I
was driving at the time.

{Wheels.9.630}: Joseph Kang {jsk} Wed, 03 Jun 2015 18:36:06 EDT (1 line)

Saw my first BMW i3 on the road recently, too.

They're fun.
