I spotted this out in Scottsdale a few weeks ago. At first, I thought it was an XP8, which was the only Saleen Explorer I knew about. When I made it to the rear of the vehicle, I noticed it said “XP6” on it.
I saw this thing pulling into Safeway and I knew I had to get out of the car and get some pictures. In case you don’t know, it’s a Citroen 2CV, and it’s the first one I’ve actually seen in person.
They were built from 1948 to 1990, which would be pretty impressive if VW’s Beetle didn’t shit all over it in terms of longevity. And everything else too, really. Continue reading

I really don’t understand what business GM’s “excitement” division had building large, luxurious, slow cars like this. Don’t get me wrong, I love the body style, and I’d love to have one, I’m just having trouble trying to come to terms with the reason for this car existing in the first place. It would have made a little more sense back in the 60’s when it was actually possible for a big car to have enough power to actually be exciting, but by the late 70’s, all the car makers were pumping out turd after (sometimes nice looking) turd and I don’t really see anything too exciting about that.
I was riding my bike around on a nice sunny Saturday in Phoenix, just minding my own business, when I came across this Aston Martin just hanging out in the Metrocenter parking lot. At first, I couldn’t figure out why such a car would be parked at what I would surely consider to be one of the top five shittiest places I know about.
I’m getting so sick of seeing all these dickheads driving lowered BMWs with perfect paint and empty high-end roof racks driving around town all the time. It’s so refreshing to see somebody making really good use of what looks to me like just a regular non-hipster rack. (ie. no deflector covered with ironic stickers).
