Just this morning, I caught my first Fisker Karma in the wild! It was light-tan colored, and in front of me, on a main road in Old Tappan, NJ (Bergen Co.), not far from where I reside, and it turned off onto a residential road. This does not count the time that I drove one at a dealer-promo in Paramus, NJ.

This has been turned my head and many others on my travels during its time with me over the last week or so. Such an understated design and build quality is astonishing...

As someone whose US based now, going back gave me a feast of vehicles. Grand Cmax, Insignias, Smax, Galaxy, Modus, Megane, Land Rover Defender 110 Crew cabs by the dozen.

And dozens of tiny roads. Why does GPS/Satnav always take you down a muddy farmers lane....

I never use Sat Nav except for hunting addresses in unknown cities.
I'd rather a map and a memory, for a start using Sat Nav means you are less aware of where you are and therefor find it harder to orientate yourself should you get lost.
Had one Sat Nav once (in 2007) that could not locate the A1 (major trunk road running nearly whole length of eastern England)

Anyway to my spottings...
this was actually a couple of weeks back, see it about Swansea a lot but was parked up in my university campus. Still a stunning car though starting to look a little dated.

Then this yesterday evening parked up on a side road. An old Austin A40 or A50 Cambridge

The other day, I saw my first Buick Verano compact sedan on the road, driving by in the distance, it was silver, and I didn't get a close look at it. Just this morning, I caught my first new-generation Toyota Yaris on the road, a white 4-door hatch, it's more aggressive and angular than the previous edition, and the single windshield-wiper is a giveaway, too.

Here's something interesting, rare, and unique that I had spotted on a garage lot in Norwood, NJ just the other day, a Bricklin, what was supposed to the effort of Malcolm Bricklin of a sports/safety car, and with gullwing doors which were built in the mid/late 70s. Some were powered by AMC V8s, and later by Ford V8s, and, one unique feature, or lack of one at the time, was the void of a cigarette lighter, to discourage smoking, now, that's industry-wide. This, sadly, was one of Malcolm Bricklin's failures, along with importing the Yugo to the USA. Importing Subaru in the USA is his claim to fame.

Fisher Karma...... it was an OMG moment.....

Don't think they've even sold 100 here in the US.

Edit: on 4/6 Just saw it again on the same dang street. Must learn to look to see who is driving it....

Just the other day, I caught ,in the NY Waterway ferry parking lot in Weehawken, NJ, a new-generation 2012 (or is it a 2013?) Bentley Continental GTC convertible, the first one that I've seen in the wild, white with a red top, and absolutely beautiful! The revisions though subtle, to seem to make a substantial difference here over the previous model, far more high-tech and sculpted.

Also, later in the day, on the main road, there was this vintage 1966 Pontiac LeMans 2-door post-coupe, a dark bluish and with a vinyl top (anyone remember those?), and it had Pontiac's old in-line OHC six, as I could tell by the emblem on the lower front-fender. This car needed some work, but, was quite a sight on the road.
