^ very nice.

Here's an old Dodge truck that I spotted in Galesburg, Michigan on Sunday. Rusting away, but the hood ornament and trim are still intact. I'm guessing it is from a similar era -

A vintage Mercedes SL. The fake old import number plate says 1963, but going by the US-required side marker lights/reflectors, I'm thinking this is a later model, unless those marker lights were added later (sider-marker lights/reflectors started being required in the US and Canada for the 1968 model year).

^ Thank you!

They are the genuine side skirts for the SW20 made by Trust/GReddy, a popular JDM tuner company.

As far as the appearance, I do like that it's clean and subtle (OEM+). The main difference is obviously it adds a rocker panel, so it helps the car look visually lower even if the ride height/wheel gap is the same. I could lower the car more, but I don't want to be rubbing everywhere. I still want it to be functional as well (not slammed or hella flushed out).

And the other main difference is you have a single open side scoop, as opposed to the OEM split scoop. I like the single open scoop since it helps modernize the car a little bit by simplifying and cleaning up the lines (it reminds me of the change Ferrari made from the 348 to the F355). And it's slightly more functional too since it improves airflow to to the intake (LH side) and intercooler (RH side).

Took these pictures the other day of cars as they were passing by on the street, while my partner and I were eating and drinking at one of our go-to restaurants. There were some cars I really wanted to take pictures of, but because I started getting tipsy, my aim wasn't so good.

So here are some of the pictures that I *was* able to take, somewhat, of random cars on the street.

One of my cocktails:

Who drives Cadillacs anymore? At least this one is electric, I think.

I missed a better picture of this old Bug going down the street.

I see this circa 1986-1989 Mercedes SL convertible around my 'hood every so often. The guy keeps it in great condition.

Does this qualify as a rice rocket?

Owner, or loaner?

Electric Lexus.

A friend of mine in college drove one of these; he was constantly putting oil in it. I was never into the way they looked; the non-US/Canadian spec looked a little better, with their non-5mph bumpers.

I hate Rivians. So hideous. They have all the elegance of a refrigerator on wheels.

I don't think so. This looks clean/stock/unmodified. Probably hard to find one that hasn't been clapped out these days.

Edit: Actually I just noticed at least one aftermarket component that could be considered ricey. The fin things or vortex generators at the top of the rear window.

I wasn't sure if it counted as riced. It looked lowered to me, so, it ticks off the "modified" box. But otherwise, I wasn't sure... I didn't notice the fin things until you pointed them out, so... Hmm...
