What did you see on the road today?

Austin can be a car spotter's paradise. Here's a couple of cool things I saw this week.

On vacation this past week, we ran across a column of old rods on a ride of some sort in Washington state.

I managed to snap a couple of photos through the windshield. :)

A '50 Ford Crestliner is a rare sight.

Technically "not on the road" but close.  Living near the GM proving grounds in Milford, MI, I always see GM products both in camouflage and not but this is probably the first time I have seen so many in one group.  They usually travel in groups of three and are not supposed to gather together like this.  One exception seemed to be the 2020 Corvettes travelling in a group of 4.  That might have been because they only 4 road ready prototypes.  Have been seeing a lot of Cadillacs in the past month or so,  way more than the pickups.

Looks like 3 disguised CT6s and 2 CT5s.  Could be V-series, though both the '20 CT6 and CT6-v as well as the CT5 and CT5-v have been publicly shown at auto shows.

I was told the side marker lights ( fire chicken )...are unique to the '67 year only

but I' m going by what was said.

That's an emblem, not a light on the front fender.  68 was the first year for side marker lights or reflectors.

I wonder sometimes if the Camo type covering doesn't draw more attention than a plane painted body.

I'd be soooo tempted to connect some of those dots with a water soluble marker just 'cause I could.

Back when I used to pass through Montvale, NJ on my daily commute I’d see all kinds of interesting things on the local roads. Montvale was home to Mercedes, BMW, Volvo and Mini and occasionally you’d see camo cars, but also Euro cars like the complete Smart range, and competitors cars like Peugeots and Renault’s not sold in the USA.  Of course all before cell phone cameras!

That truck is usually pushing his big brother up hills.

What appears to be a small white van near the front is one of ABC7 Chicago's Nissan Titan based high roof NV cargo vans and is probably a good 8-10ft tall without the transmitter equipment on the roof yet looks like a minivan next to UP4014:o

Maybe the next time I buy a car I'll cover it in vinyl wrap with the "don't photograph me" camouflage.  Just because I like the pattern.  :-)

Now, people love to make fun of the old Aztek, but how does its cousin the Buick Rendezvous fit in with fans?  I see those just about everywhere.  A co-worker of mine has one.

I saw a recent Ferrari roadster and a late '30s Plymouth convertible last week.  I don't know the model of Ferrari, but I think it was red...

Saw a sharp copper colored '67 Dodge Dart GTS ht, a bright green 6th gen Camaro ZL1 and an orange Corvette C7 Z06 all on Rt 30 outside Greensburg, PA on Saturday.   Then back here locally yesterday saw a clean late 80s Rolls Royce sedan in black w/ a red interior and a blue & white Corvair Greenbrier pickup.
