It’s that time to empty my phone again as I go from 5S to 6S, so let’s see what my little Apple brick has picked up over the past three months.

Same key fob? Probably.
Show-off kept revving it in a small side street. Douche.
Impala. And Impala.
Those Lexus wheels are ugly as sin. So ugly I had to take a picture of them.

Clownshoe! Sorry about the awful reflection...
One great Bay Area perk...
Is being able to see Tesla prototypes! This was a Model 3 that I chased all the way down Page Mill Rd

That is, until the Camry in front of it let it fly down faster than I could manage in a top-heavy Volvo XC! Just kidding, the Volvo had plenty of punch, it was just the X5 directly in front of me that was being a stick in the mud >:(

A Mexican scene; on the right, a Nissan Platina (i.e. Renault Clio with a trunk); on the left, the most beat-up 928 ever
Now this is a curiosity! The VW Derby, a Polo with a trunk made specifically for Mexico.

Originally based on a Seat, this thing finished production about a decade ago...
But this one is still in service as a Biosphere Preserve Park Service vehicle!
A little Duster looking smug between two huge F150s! I’d love one if they were sold in the States, perfectly small, rugged, and with a stick!

Sure it’s just an ordinary cabover passenger van, but check out those knobbly tires and the zip-tied wheel covers!
To be honest, the front of these NV350s is rather intimidating with the buck-toothed grin; I wouldn’t want to be tailgated by one, that’s for sure!
As nice as the XC70 is, I’m really going to miss this little guy in college. Why are first cars so indelible? Well, that and this thing truly is a great little car, even my dad echos that.

That’s all for now! Thanks for looking, and see you around Oppo! On a side note, are there any recent trips that you’ve been on and seen some esoteric automotive metal?
