    Nash Metropolitan. Don't see many of those anymore. Guy I knew when stationed in Japan had one, but that was around 1970. Can't remember seeing one locally.

    This was hidden among the Lambos. If you can afford a McLaren I reckon you can park where ever you like.

    That car has been sitting there for a couple of years. Maybe the owner gives it a warsh every now & then.

    I don't like any sports car marques making SUVs. I saw a Jaguar SUV the other day, it nearly made me puke!
