Today’s lunch errand, which occasionally turns into fun carspotting amid the sea of generic Infiniti QX80s and Honda Pilots.

First, a Mozzerati Jibbly. Not especially rare or interesting, but grocery shopping at noon on a Thursday, it is.

Second, a W211 Mercedes E350 4Matic wagon. Since I don’t live in New England, I don’t see a ton of Merc wagons (1:500 compared to the ML or GL SUVs). Not only that, but GREEN!! And clean, with pretty rare wheels, and parked unusually far from the store with an AMG front plate. All subtle signs of an enthusiast.

I forgot Mercedes even offered anything but black, gray, white, and the occasional red.
