    Maybe. It was smaller, i think. I saw it just on my way home today.
    Also two brand new M3's. I live in quite an upscale area, and im really thankful about it.

    Yes, and i just looked it up and it looks identical. So yes, it was a Comanche.

    I live in America, and quite a while ago, on my way to a basketball game, i saw an R33 GTR with a couple of guys in front of it working on it. it had the exhaust, wing, and was in white. it was beautiful. I have seen that same one twice, and i have seen 2 R32's. Along with that, i have seen the same Type R Civic a couple of times, and i have seen one or two others.

    Well, sorta. See, there was this company called MotorX that’d import these cars, I think they got the R32 approved by the government and then imported the R33 and 34 as if they were 32s without the government knowing about it. Eventually, the goverment shut em down, but they did get a few Skylines into the US.

    I think I saw an R32 with an R33 facia swapped onto it before, so that could be how it was done.

    I also have seen an 2018 Acura TLX/RLX, isn't so sure on exactly which one (since I wasn't able to see it for any longer than 7 or less seconds), but I'm leaning towards TLX.

    Also, the rarest Avalon for me is the MCX10 around my street, they seem to match well.

    I may be going to the Amelia Island Concourse d'Elegance next week, so I'll get some nice rare car pics for you then.

    That seems nice! Can you speculate of what cars might be there?

    I've never been to one before, but usually rare, $million+ cars. Old Ferraris, prewar cars, old concept cars, stuff like that.

    Some rare cars Ive seen (not including museums or auto shows)
    -2010 Lamborghini Murcielago lp670
    -2011ish Lamborghini Gallardo lp640
    -2005 Ford GT
    -too many fucking Porsche 911s to count
    I live in Toledo, so rare cars are hard to come by.

    Well, although I do come close to seeing Lamborghinis and Porsches, the "rarest" cars I see is probably not rare anywhere else in America, or Massachusetts for that matter. (Besides that Kona and Spitfire, TBH.)

    You think a Hyundai Kona is rare because they just started selling it?

    Well, then again, I didn't see much MDXs last year, although I'm sure the first time I saw it was probably months after release. The other cars I consider rare are the other ones I never see often (or just once), or aren't almost everywhere when I'm traveling, like an Porsche 911 Carrera, or ironically, the old Avalon.

    I wish it stayed rare...

    I'm starting to see them around here, mostly in eye-murdering metallic orange. I die inside a little every time it happens.

    Luckily I saw it once, at an dealership only. I'm already sure that it's the US-Spec, because every foreign car here (Honda, BMW, Mini, etc.) were made into an USDM vehicle, with the exception of exports.
    It was also in the same green as shown in the premier images for the USDM Kona, and the original as well.

    The rarest Non-super Ive ever seen is probably a Nissan Skyline GTR R32 Nismo. Ive seen plenty of Skylines, but only one Nismo.
    If I include Museums, then definitely an Original Ford GT40. Beautiful example of an automobile, that is.
