    That's exactly it... They tried this stunt on my mother. I was about 20 years old, and I told the salesman that if he didn't have the keys in her hand in 30 seconds, he was getting his --- kicked..

    Sort of the same thing... especially, since I hadn't hit anyone since I was 12 yrs old, and wasn't really planning on trying it then, either.. ;-)

    Worked, though...

    I went with my mother to buy her Fiesta a couple of years ago, she was close to 81 at the time.
    When the salesman asked if he could have her keys to check her trade in, she reached in her pocketbook and put them on the desk.
    Then she reached in her pocketbook again, held up another set of keys, and said, 'I brought my spares with me'.
    It caught me completely off guard and I was mortified.

    Just spotted a new Blue Corolla S on my walk at lunch and a company down the street from me has a Black Model S in the parking lot. Also saw a brand new Mazda 3 hatch last evening, what a looker.

    Grey Cruze diesel on the freeway. Far right lane, going about 55mph. Seems like someone was going for a high score on the mpg reading.

    Saw one of my favorite local new cars - a white on white BMW Gran Coupe. What a combination.

    Also saw a 2014 E-class, these seem to be selling very well.

    Gorgeous Model S in white of all colors. Best color I've seen on this puppy.

    And another Corolla S at Starbucks this morning, this one in red. Ironically parked next to a new Rav4 in Green. It was like Christmas...

    Saw one in a parking lot yesterday, while walking to lunch. Wasn't at all sure what I was looking at, first one I ever saw.

    Suzuki, actually.

    That's a clone of the compact GM pickups. Basically a place holder in dealerships to fill a void in their lineup.

    C63 AMG. Dear lord that thing sounds incredible and goes like stink...

    I saw a new Range Rover Sport, parked downtown. I could tell it was the new design by the way the roof sloped down @ the rear (ala RR Evoque).
    It was snow white but managed to look good in spite of that.

    "white Viper driven by a blond guy wearing Ray Ban aviators and a green sweater over his shoulders"

    LOL, did he take a detour from Santa Barbara to San Diego by way of New England or something?

    He must have been on his way to Greenwich from Nantucket.

    New Cadenza, looked pretty nice. CX-5, looks pretty plain.

    You're correct, it is a Suzuki, not a Subaru.

    That's a clone of the compact GM pickups.

    That part turns out not to be correct. Quoting from Wikipedia:

    The Suzuki Equator is a mid-size pickup truck based on the Nissan Frontier and assembled by Nissan.


    Sales of the Suzuki Equator since 2009 have been 5,808 overall, and it rarely sells over 200 units per month.

    Easy to understand why I've never seen one before.

    Nothing really special about them IMO, but they seem to be selling rather well already. Already as common a sighting as the new RAV4...

    Reworked XC60, I like the subtle changes like the integrated exhaust and a sleek new Mahogany color.

    Spotted a few more Model S's in Providence, RI area.

    Also saw a new Tundra with MA plates (sold) and another out for a test drive. The looks of it aren't as bad as the pictures and for some reason the paint and chrome work I found very rich. It's a pretty classy looking rig IMO...

    Probably a 5 layer pearl white paint job. You get what you pay for. :shades:

    I bet he was playing the soundtrack from Risky Business.
