Another car spotting thread...

My blog seems to be turning into a car spotting blog! This will change soon, as I am in the process of buying my next track car. I put down a deposit and can't wait to take possession of the car in the next few days. If it all works out, I may get a chance to try the car on track before the season ends (which is soon!). 

We have had a great summer as far as family activities, including a trip to southern France, a week-long trip to Ogunquit, and several smaller trips to the countryside. 

I have started running more seriously, which means 10 km three times a week, and I feel I am in decent shape, in that I could potentially start a marathon training plan without too much suffering.

There was also a big event in our lives: Jules has started school (kindergarten). The whole family heads out to drop him off every morning, which involves us leaving the house earlier than in the past. We met his teacher, and she seems fantastic.

Back to cars: here are a few interesting ones I have come across since my last post:

I don't love these Jetta's, but these wheels really improve the look of the car.
This Maserati is also greatly improved by its aftermarket wheels.
Same Jag, I still love it!
A really clean early turbo Volvo
I've never seen a VW Transporter 4-door pickup before... I like it.
This Bentley looks lowered. It greatly improves the look.
We took a ferry across the St-Lawrence a few weeks ago, and there were a bunch of vintage Citroen's on board with us.
991 GT3 in Old Montreal
A now rare BMW 850i
I've never seen this colour on a 997 before
Another "budget" Maserati, I often see it near my home.
I like the Miata coupe, but I still don't love the design of any current Miata's.
Very cool Mercedes 190e 2.3-16, don't like the wheels though.
I've always thought these Suzuki's were ridiculous, but I respect that the owner has kept this one so clean.
Rolls coupe in Old Montreal
Extremely rare Accord hatchback in remarkable condition
I respect that Chevy is trying to make a 90's style hot hatch, adding a turbo and bright paint to an econobox.
Someone in my neighbourhood bought the AMG S63 coupe in satin black.
Big rain, German muscle on my street
Lovely 930 on the way to daycare. Same dealer plate that was on the E30 M3 I recently posted.
Not my thing, but in excellent condition.
Cool Rolls convertible
Mini John Cooper Works
Loud paint on a loud Jag
Yas Marina BLue M4
A rare unmodified E30
Another Honda chosen by Oscar for a photo
... and finally, another BMW 850i
