      Yeah, I think a few of them belong to the guys from Works Engineering on N. 14th St.

      Somebody mentioned that one in my old thread. Sounds hard to miss, but I still haven't run into it yet.

      A lot of these are totally unremarkable (trucks/jeeps) ... guess it all depends on where ya live!

      That rolling shot is definitely the hottest Forrester I've ever seen.
      don't ever see Alfa Milanos though. my fav. Italien car of all time (and I hate 4-doors ... )

      Some, like the Jeep, are pretty standard, but I still find them interesting in some way. Interesting enough to stop to snap a pic, anyway.

      Man, I live in Bushwick and I think I've seen at least half of these cars around Greenpoint/Williamsburg.

      Also, I saw that Citroen crusing over the Williamsburg Bridge into Manhattan a few months ago. I was like:

      Yeah, one day I saw that little Citroen breezing down Reade St in TriBeCa. They really do drive it a lot. The interior looks pretty "used" as well, so it's no garage queen.

      Great thread!

      Here's a couple of shots I took a few months ago about 4 blocks from my house. The damn thing was just sitting there in the middle of the street. I don't know if it had broken down or what.

      haha, I've seen those guys with the Accord wagons working on them in the street. That's right by the Wburg bridge, right? They had them up on jacks and were messing around with things.

      Also, there's a Mazda RX-3 on Flushing Ave. as you head east towards 495. It's red and looks pretty clean; parked right out front of an auto salvage yard.

      Also, I live right down the block from a metal recyclers where old cars are dropped and discarded right in the street for them to lift with a front end loader and dump in the crusher. Two weeks ago I saw an early 80's 745 (the turbo one) in the middle of our street. This week? A Rolls Royce convertible. Rusted to pieces, but still...
