    Have you seen any unusal cars around lately ? Not really exotic, just cars you don't see every day.

    I got passed by one of these last week and did a double take.

    Few weeks ago I was behind on of these beauties rockin BC plates and an aluminium step ladder on the roof.

    There was someone in my old neighborhood that had the car in the second pic.

    I remember seeing one on Kijiji a few years ago with a plow on the front.

    I haven't seen an eagle in years. Friends of my family had one and it eas a tank. I remember it had a problem with "dieseling" ie continuing to run after it was shut off

    I inherited a K car from my grandfather when he died a couple years back. He had it for maybe a year. When he bought it for $1100, it had like 28,000 orignal KMs on it. It was mint. Ended up selling it to my sister inlaw's parents and they managed to run it into the ground haha.

    I think it was an AMC Spirit not sure what the difference between the Spirit and the Eagle was.

    When I was looking to buy my first car I told me father I wanted an eagle talon TSi. A few days later he told me that on the way home he saw an eagle talon AWD for sale for $1000. I was so excited I could have shit myself. We went out the next day to take a look and to my disappointment it was a fucking AMC Eagle haha.

    Father is not much of a car guy.

    I've seen a couple on ebay, which would probably be cheaper than giving up a nut.

    The day I came home from my surgery in Halifax last month, I saw a C4 Corvette on the road, and a Hyundai Pony. I didn't think there were any Ponys left.

    And last week, a guy called the store looking for pads, rotors, and calipers for an 87 Reliant. :wtf:

    last summer a customer came in looking for an oil filter for an 85 Chevette Diesel, i was astonished to find I had like 12 of these filters buried in stock covered in dust from the 80's. he bought the whole box for $5 :kekeke:

    This thing was immaculate, had 21,000 original kms on it :eek7: i wanted to buy it.

    You've never seen a Cordoba or an Eagle?

    Someone I know's parents won a Cordoba like that when it was new. From a cereal box or something. But I can't remember who it was... I actually prefer the Ricardo era Cordoba though. Although the Magnum is kinda the best of both words (the square edged look and the meaner looking rims). Although this one has aftermarket ones.

    :eek3::eek3: My friend had an 86 as a body-shop loaner. 4 of us in it, 70 mph downhill wide open. My friend stuck his 2 arms out the window and the car darted for the ditch from the wind resistance :o

    I see a strange looking civic SI hatch around once in a while its kinda stretched out. I think it was a european model I cant find a picture of it. mid to early 2000's

    guy I work with has one of those mini Suzuki RHD pickups and the thing is a tank. he's had it since summer and hasnt had to do anything to it but change the oil. and its a daily driver.



    does 105kph on the highway @ 6800rpm..... the little diesel is just screaming.

    It is a 2-door crossover based on the Trooper. It is apparently an amazing cross terrain vehicle.
