Any car spotters out there?

I've a penchant for orphan cars and my wallet is still recovering from my Merkur Scorpio affair(2x), the Alfa Romeo 164LS debacle, and that Sterling 827 SLi fling..(don't ask). The list goes on lmao :. Even after all of that I went and bought an early F10 550 Xi smh. I really like getting my ass kicked on emotionally charged car purchases hahah.

Be that as it may I thought it'd be interesting to see what cars you guys spot that really gets your motors revving. Before my 550 I was literally OBSESSED with bringing home a Volkswagen Phaeton, I was SET on it but decided against it and bought the Bimmer. Yesterday this guy comes by my job in this 04 Phaeton in cherry shape pictured below and that old "give this car a home because it's so beautiful" feeling cane up...UGH!

Post em up, let's see what you can find.

Saw this Suzuki Samurai at Harbor Freight a few days ago. Looks to be in better shape then it came from the factory!! This dude is dedicated. He's got work to do but not bad...

Spotted this RHD Toyota (Prado?) a few weeks ago in my small hick town in NC. The owner was British and loved talking to a fellow enthusiast.

Pretty sure that's a Gen 8 Civic Coupe rear end. Otherwise ... absolutely no clue.

I was behind this guy during my lunch break. This brought back some memories of fishing trips when I was a kid.

My 16-year old nephew is obsessed with this car, so I snapped these pics for him while out getting gas.

Minus points for dealership badge.

Spotted this yellow bumblebee at my local dmv today. I'm only guessing but it's a fair assessment that it's spark plug change is about 100k overdue because the owner is still paying for the paint job, or saving for 28 inch rims. Oy...

Second pic is a neat and creative license plate I seen today.
