I agree that they are different, I guess I was just giving preference to one electric super car over another. I used to see a Karma every day on my commute home, and while it certainly caught my eye ever time, I think the front end just seems off to me. Side view, rear view, looks great. But the front of it just kills me every time.

Must be some sort of pre-production spy camera cloaking on this one... I thought GM ditched Pontiac?

Sweet VW spotted in HCMC, Vietnam. I don't know enough about these to assess its rarity, but it's the nicest one I've seen in a long time. Don't know how you keep these from rusting away in that climate.

Judging by the small, painted turn-signal housings, a 1951-ish Samba. Rarest of the rare. Sahweet!

How rare? $217,800.00 at Barrett-Jackson > http://www.autoweek.com/article/2011062 ... /110629870

The article identifies this one as a 1963. The one you spotted, being older, and in mint (apparently) condition... .. $$$

23 window bus.... VERY RARE. I think the $2xx,000 is a little too much. Expect $30,000+ though for anything above average.

Hagerty says $30 G's on a 52 Samba
http://www.hagerty.com/price-guide/1952 ... agen-Samba

But they have the 59 Deluxe at 22 or so.

Still a beautiful example.

And an absolutely bizarre Plymouth Belvedere (majestic name)

Bonus: Hot Wheels Oldsmobile DONK and Chromey hubcap from an Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 I picked from a salvage yard
