This bright purple automatic Mustang is pretty well summed up by the pinstripe and letters spelling out “butterfly” emblazoned on the side. I’m sure the car sums up its driver pretty well too. Texas plate is a little unexpected though.
Still, this has got to be one of the best non-Cobra SN95 Mustangs I’ve seen in a while so someone clearly loves the car. Doesn’t love it enough to get rid of those awful chrome windshield wipers though. Ick.
Just a short distance away was this slightly delusional Mazda3. The bright yellow color was very nice but it isn’t OEM yet it also didn’t look like a wrap. Must have been a fairly high quality respray. It was a stick too.
Mmmmmmm, an Allroad.
My first new Defender spot. I have to say, that’s a very good looking vehicle. It isn’t huge either. It’s just a purposeful and well proportioned machine that maybe 10% of owners will actually use as intended.
Moving on to the not-student owned vehicles, we have a car most students would not be caught dead in.
Was the hideous gold grille on this old Fleetwood factory?
Standard issue Zoidbait.
Ah yes, the ellusive Cadillac ELR. Underneath, it’s a Chevy Volt. Inside, it’s a Chevy Volt missing half its doors. Yeah, I wouldn’t buy one either for how much they wanted for them.
Wanna bet these are owned by the same person? Or is it just a Camaro and camo wrap loving couple? You decide!
Parking level 100 boss.
I did spy a beautifully restored classic Mini whisking its way downtown but I was too late with the camera. Too bad, as it was the only real old car I spotted yesterday.
So in leu of a Mini you’ll have to settle for another, different corner of Peachtree and Peachtree that I added to my collection. Double points for double signage.
The abandoned Atlanta Constitution Building has been a blight on 5 Points for decades. It was only used for 6 years after its opening in 1947 despite being extremely expensive to construct after a corporate merger claimed the newspaper that built it. At this point, the structure is so far gone it needs to be demolished. I hate to see this city’s irreverence towards its history claim yet another historic structure but this particular building is just plain dangerous.
So, Oppo, which vehicle would you drive home in today? The deed to the abandoned Atlanta Constitution would also be an acceptable prize for a week well spent but it doesn’t seem all that appealing to me. Since I don’t hate myself enough to take the Allroad I’d totally rock that Mazda3 sans big wang.
