Sometimes the expression on someones face says more than the rest of the picture. That is certainly true for the driver of this Toyota Starlet KP62:

If you look at the Celica and Miata and compare it against the other two behemoths next to them you realize these two cars are very very un-American. 😉
When I walked around to take a snapshot up front the Miata owner returned left, so all in all I just had about one minute of luck to take the above snapshot. This is how the Celica looks up front: Read the rest of this entry →
