    The first Stinger since early spring, or the first HCR since early spring? I have yet to see a Red anywhere outside the dealership.

    Spotted a Hi Chroma Red Stinger GT , exiting a car park and driving towards me at Melbourne Airport yesterday about mid afternoon, it really looked so awesome in that Hi Chroma Red, every time I spot a Stinger, it feels like it's the very first time I have ever seen one on the road..:):laugh::rofl:

    Just discharged from the Hospital walk out of the driveway and the first vehicle i see is this shiny gem, summarily ignored by female occupant but guided her out of spot. Zero thanks.

    That CS down the road from us? The one I hypothesized was in for "service" each time I saw a red Optima sitting in its parking spot? Well, I guess I was wrong. Here for the first time are both of them parked nose to tail.

    Around 1 p.m. today, I saw a ceramic silver GT turn left onto Whittier Blvd. from Philadelphia. Brand new: paper plate on the rear, pristine in front. Because it was gray and rainy today, the paint reflected that and looked a dark, storm cloud gray. I love how this color changes depending on the surrounding light.

    I've seen a lot of Stingers on Whittier Blvd. lately, at least on the Pico Rivera/Whittier end. So like in the old Thee Midniters song, "Let's take a trip down Whittier Blvd! Arriba! Arriba!"

    Not impressed. @Luminary sees four in one day up there. How are you defining "a lot"? I finally got to 21 just as I hit 20 months with the car; for the first time, my "wild" count exceeded the months I've been in the Stinger. That felt like "a lot" to me. But meh, nobody else is going to equate that with "a lot". :D

    Interesting, I would've never guessed the population in that area would be into Stingers. But then again, demographics seem diverse.

    I feel like East Coast has generally a higher Stinger ownership than the West..

    Walked out my front door, what do I see, a Hi Chroma Red Stinger GT, seen one other times driving down the same street, same colour, also could be the same one I saw at the airport only two days ago.

    So apparently there is another one in Collegeville, PA. It was a white one. Mine is blue. I have to admit it is kind of cool rarely seeing any others.

    I noticed that one of my neighbors in the Herndon area (Virginia) parks a gray one on the 3rd deck of the garage. Looks new with paper tags. I've had mine for a month now (Hi-chroma Red) and have not seen another since I purchased mine.
