No SR-20, but it was blue like this:

I don't think it was a V, but it was dark out and so covered in salt and dirt (been snowing up here lately) it was hard to make out the details.

Why it a beater? Well, it was dirty as shit.... the left tail light was out, and once I passed it every time it hit a bump the headlights would jiggle like they were installed with silly putty.

I lol'd.
