    Well, this thread is to tell us about your recent sightings of any uncommon cars, be it a Ford T, a Lamborghini, an Audi V8, a Lada in the US, a car with interesting modifications, a banger in an extraordinary bad condition or a very horrible ricer.
    This week I saw:
    • Peugeot 205 GTI
    • C3 Corvette
    • Volvo 960 limousine with pre-EU German plates
    • Brand new LHD Lincoln Continental with British plates
    • Volvo Amazon wagon in a Volvo dealership's parking lot
    • A very rusty Kia Clarus, haven't seen one in years
    • Daewoo Nexia (people from Russia and countries alike may laugh at this one)
    • Opel Omega A
    • A stanced previous gen Toyota Sienna with a body kit and diplomatic license plates
    • A third gen Lexus GX with mismatched body panels (rear end and doors silver, front panels and door sills black)
    A couple of weeks ago, when I was picking up my car from a body repair shop, I saw another C3 Corvette there. Poor thing got its whole right side destroyed in a sideswipe crash, hope they fix it up.
    At least I'm proud my 300€ Nissan is repaired at the shop people bring vintage 'Vettes to.

    Went on a trip to Bratislava, Vienna and Prague:

    - A 70s Cadillac Eldorado,
    - A decent bunch of US SUVs,
    - A relatively big Cadillac dealership on Bratislava's Donau bank,
    - A white RR Corniche coupe and a Wraith in the same colour,
    - An ex-Habsburg Gräf & Stift convertible (in a museum),
    - A ton of new E-Classes, S-Classes and 911s, up to seeing 2 of each model at the same time and including a Brabus S-Class,
    - A 70s 911 Targa,
    - 3 different Ferrari convertibles (2x 458, 1x California), all red,
    - A few M2s, M3s, M4s, M5s and M6s,
    - Old Avia trucks,
    - My hotel had a Mk1 Skoda Octavia with miscoloured left doors, a Mk2 Fiat Ducato with miscoloured panels and a faded Lada Niva,
    - Faux-antique tourist ride cars.

    In my town, they're Fiat Cinquecentos, Unos and VW Polos - the official cars of "wait, people still get three-digit incomes?"

    (While the minimum wage is over 1600 PLN, you can get much less on the minimum retirement, welfare or illegal job)

    We've recently bought a BMW X5, and it has a dead battery so we have to keep it running, what does this correlate with the actual thread? I'll tell you.
    In the parking lot of Sainsbury's, I was sat in the car making sure it was staying running and a brand new BMW X5 pulls up, and parks directly next to us.
    May not seem like much, but in my thought it's the world taking the piss out of me.

    Kia Forte Koups are sometimes tuned where I live. I've seen them on Main St., and at an car wash. Also, there was an 124 Spider once at Taco Bell, and a couple days later an Eclipse Cross across (ironic word choice) from that restaurant.

    My dad, a few years ago, bought 2 TR7s with the hope of turning it into one functional car

    Since it's one of the worst cars in the world, it happened that both of them where so weathered and broken that simply sitting in them for a few seconds gave you nausea from a rotting smell of the seats and this Russian Windex that the previous owner left in them
