    Such a guy thing: showing off the car and not the family. Women do this exactly opposite if given half a chance. :D

    Lol. I’ve had to stop posting sightings. I posted a month or so ago about passing a Snow White Pearl in my street. Turns out he’s moved into a unit around the corner from my place. Where I sit in my lounge room I can see out my front door and down the street so every time he leaves or returns I clock up another “sighting’.

    my second car is a white i30sx

    could be a case of ground hog day? You should go around there take traction control off and do some screechies to show him whose boss of the 'hood lol.

    Maybe the Deep Chroma Blue you spotted was new member @GBgb

    No, not been that far yet!

    I saw a black one down our way this afternoon. First spotting of one in the wild for me.

    My son started working at a used car dealership a few weeks ago and he's been seeing about one Stinger a week come in (sends me a picture each time), along with Corvette, Porsche, and others. Used Stingers with just a couple thousand miles on them are hitting the market and might be good value.

    Saw a red GT on the 121-DNT interchange this morning. I waved/flashed! Was that you, @Iceman25c?

    I was extremely late to an early meeting at work so I didn't slow down to nab a picture or anything.

    Had my first actual sighting while driving my own micro blue Stinger! Northern NJ, spotted a red Stinger GT with temps, we gave each other a honk and thumbs up. My spouse rolled her eyes as I'm assuming his lady friend did, too.

    Hey. That's not fair. I wouldn't count @Gordo again if/when I see him in his Stinger: I know the guy and where he lives. So his Stinger isn't "wild" anymore. Stop changing the rools. ;)

    They're still pretty rare up here. I made a couple of 1,000 km trips over the holidays and didn't see another Stinger on the road.

    Agreed. I don’t mentally count this one as a sighting any more. Funnily enough whenever I see him I think, ‘Damn that’s a nice car’ and it’s a split second before I realise that I’ve got one too!

    Just saw my first of the new year, a white 2.0 pulling into the Michigan Station Post Office lot in Whittier. I was walking, but gave a thumbs up and pointed to mine parked a few stalls on, but I didn't detect a response, probably because the sun was reflecting and I couldn't see the driver clearly. I think it was a woman.

    Lol. "Not a woman?" Not a woman!?" (Val Kilmer in drag could not fool anybody, but with the sun in your eyes perhaps; my movie memes are almost all old; I hardly watch movies anymore:rolleyes:)

    Well, that is "cheating". You can't count them as "wild" if they herd together like that! ;) Nice looking lineup (outside of a dealership; and a whole lot more spiff looking than the average dealership lineup with dusty rain spots all over them).
