    Wow, yeah, those Ferrari FFs are really rare! I've never seen one in the flesh and probably never will, haha!

    Nice BMWs too! That yellow one almost gave you the slip :p

    No picture unfortunately, but yesterday I saw a Saab Sonett for the first time in my life. The fact that I could smell the exhaust for a full city block after I saw it led me to believe it was one of the two-stroke models. :|

    Yeah, I think it's a CLS, although I'm not all knowledgeable on Mercedes' slew of letter names, lol.

    Cool that you saw a Sonnett Lethbridge_Man! I've never seen one in the flesh either, but they are such weird, quirky cars...I would love to own one of those old Saab 93s or 96s someday!

    Spotted these two Landies, both in Mahone Bay. Pretty sure they are owned by the same guy....an Australian who moved here and runs a local kayak tour / normal tour business in the area. He actually daily drives both of them, so kudos to him to see them being used as intended! (I don't even think he has any other cars!)

    The red one still has the New South Wales Australian license plate on the front, and I don't think I've ever seen another one of the yellow short-wheelbase ones like this with that particular little cool hardtop! Really sorry for the super shitty shot of the red one....not only does my crappy flip-phone camera suck, it also falls on it's face in low-light conditions...I'll try to get a better pic of it at some point!

    Nice spots! That last one is a Volvo P1800. Gorgeous-looking cars to me, and one of them has over 3,000,000 miles and a Guiness World Record to show for it! :D

    My brother took a picture of this beast in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia 2 days ago....wearing German plates and it was a Mercedes, no idea of the model, but THIS is a camper, haha! :D

    Pretty cool - they must've been letting random people add chalk art to the front as they went on their trip, you can see the drawings on the cab in the pic :)

    They must really stay around certain areas to experience them....just saw it again at the same gas station fuelling up...looked MASSIVELY AWESOME...and slightly out of place :p

    Wow, pretty rare over here! I've never seen one in the flesh....guy around here has a later VW Corrado in decent shape though, but those seem to be more common.
