It looks like it started as this model, but it had aftermarket wheels and the front window was cut down as a speedster. Maybe it was a show car, or a Brabus modification?



Then I pull into a 7/11 and theres a Lambo Guillardo taking up 2 parking spaces.

I love LA!!

Was it this...

That's exactly what it was. It had the red seats, but it was all black and the wheels looke like they were aftermarket.

A Smart is a rare siting in the US, so this Crossblade model must be even rarer.

there are a few of the early model smarts here, few convertibles and i have only seen one Xblade that belonged to a local radio station...


They are a good idea if you nevr leave the city, but the Xblade is useless in the UK

nice! the old snapple-bottle trick.....

My theory of why NYC smells like urine (aside from dogs):

Cab/Limo drivers pee in a bottle, opens his door and dumps a bottle full of pee on the curb!

talk about going off topic :hide:

Those are called "trucker bombs." Apparently some people actually collect meth using truckdrivers urine in order to extract the unabsorbed meth out of it. Twas on the news a few weeks ago.

My ex wife lived by a test track, and there were often disguised cars there as far back as the 1970s!!
