    I've occasionally seen these kicking around out there, most recently near Shuswap Lake. That would get you safely to the other side of a speed bump!

    Had a few good Euro spots lately :)

    It's bit hard to tell in the photo but it's a totally chromed out Bentley

    Another Bentley? It was RHD

    Pretty nice looking 850i. Even though I mostly had a hate relationship with mine, but I still love the look of these E31's and it's such a great highway cruiser.

    And a couple of G-Wagen's

    This thing lives in the hood, and unlike every other Citroen I've ever seen, it's immaculate.

    Also this; you don't often see them running, not to mention so clean.

    First time I've seen one of these in person:

    (Yes, there's an R8 behind it, but who cares, it got totally upstaged)

    Saw a GLA45 yesterday. Pretty powerful 2.0L in these things.

    Nice spot! I really like the look of those Lotus'. Was it a V8? I saw a Blue one in Coquitlam a few years ago.

    Love that Alfa! Those things just look gorgeous. As for those two Bentleys.....no thanks on the chrome one, I'll take that older one thanks, haha!

    Love that Citroën XM as well! :D Has that one been around that area for awhile? There was one almost (if not exactly) like that for sale in Ontario not that long ago! Aren't many of that model in the country - I wonder if it's the same one?

    Could be. I've seen it a few times in the last few years. It's parked in the same driveway which previously hosted this Ferrari. There are six years between the two pictures, but the Land Cruiser on both is the same. :)

    Anyhow, more vintage bonanza! The dealer lot with the red Turbo Esprit diversified (and I forgot to wipe the grease off my potato before snapping these >:( ):

    Someone in my area drives this meticulously restored old brown shoe:

    And this Bristol is parked in a posh driveway on the old money street. Definitely not something you see often.

    Citroën SM!!! :D

    Also....E-Type! Always loved the E-type coupes...the roadsters are ok, but they just don't have the same style to me...

    Lovely old Volvo as well, and is that an Alfa Spider I see in the background in the first pic?

    That Bristol is one rare beast!

    Yeah, it's an Alfa Spider. They're very common here so I don't usually pay attention.

    There was also this, no matter how hard I tried, the potato couldn't take a picture of it that doesn't make it look like a black blob. :(

    944S2, looked like a Clubsport clone - low, large brakes, crank windows, basic climate control, bare interior I spent a few minutes looking at it and thinking how much money I'd need to part with to own one (answer: a lot).

    Common woodland 944s are a dime a dozen, and it's possible to buy nice ones within just about any budget. The S2 model is more rare and more expensive - it had a naturally aspirated 3.0L four cylinder engine with almost as much power as the turbo 944s. Clubsport was Porsche's factory track prep package which added a bunch of tracky parts and deleted a bunch of luxuries. I don't think any of those made it to Canada, but that car had a bunch of telltale signs suggesting that the owner took steps to convert it. 8|

    I was going to say wasn't the S2 944 as fast as the 911's of the same age? I'm guessing maybe that was just a typo?

    Check it out! Someone brought in a Robin!! LOL!
