Yes, as the title implies, I missed out on photographing a Taurus SHO. This one was a little ragged with peeling tint and dinged up bumper, but it was still the first SHO I’ve seen in a while. There was no parking near it and I was on a delivery, so I doubled back at a later time only to find it wasn’t there.

Here is the local Kroger at it again.

I saw this faded Chevy El Camino pull into the parking lot in front of me but I didn’t get the chance to chat with the driver.

Someone clearly loves this thing and in all probability dailies it. Newer Florida plate. Also note the strange colored bed liner sprayed in the rear. It appeared to be fairly fresh and someone took pains to color match it with the gray Super Sport striping.

Which somehow came out really blurry. Sigh. It appeared to be very straight all around, but I couldn’t get a close look because I was on a delivery.

Don’t the sun just ruin all the fun. With photography at least, these hot sunny days are no good for snapping photos.

This dusty Cooper Works with one corner missing a wheel and on the space efficient jack without a jack stand has probably been sitting since Life U closed up a few months ago. Poor Mini.

Clean Comanche and nice S10 besides it. I’d assume same owner.

Replicar Gazelle that appeared to be an automatic.

These are not the same car but the chances of them not knowing each other and being parked so close on the same day are basically nothing.

And a real wacky colored Range Rover Evoque. Purple is good but I’d prefer it be on something else.

Two door Toyota Tercels and Nissan Sentras are still surprisingly common as basic commuters.
