Man I've never heard of a Carol. Google couldn't help me either. I'm intriqued. Photos do you have access to?

That's the toy car I saw ... sorry for Nissaning the Mazda, but this wasn't a case of "IIRC" Smile

It was dark blue with withe striping. The early JDM's in my area used to be Skylines (of course), but more cars are popping up, even less exiting ones like the Carol.

There is at least one Nissan Figaro in Montreal, and that's a cutie !

I personally wish there were far more of these types of cars plying the roads of N. 'Merica... and far fewer H2, H3, Denali, G-Wagons, etc. But, that's just me.

You may see us gravitate more towardsd the kei class cars down the road. Nissan's coming out with the Cube and Ford's promising to bring the Fiesta to the States. Can't rule out that Mazda will finally bring the 2.

NY Auto Show this year was a bit more subdued - not as many flash and concepts but a lot of fun was to be had still.

One car was on display was the Koenigsegg CCX. Seems like an outfit on Long Island is a seller and was displaying their ware. The numbers on one of the handout was pretty impressive:

acceleration: 0-100km/H 3.2 sec
top speed: 395 km/H +
standing 1/4 mile: 9.9 sec at 235 km/H
braking distance: 31m 100-0 km/H
lateral g-force: 1.3G
combined fuel consumption: 17L/100km

Then: '79 Plymouth Horizon, '88 VW Fox Wagon, '92 VW Jetta GL (DW), '96 VW Golf GL (DW), '97 Jetta GLX - Green, '03 MPV ES - Blue Mica (DW)
Now: '15 Hyundai Elantra GT - Titanium Gray Metallic (DW), '10 Honda Civic Si - Polished Metal Metallic blake

Yes.. that is a nice car. I believe Top Gear did test it by the Stig and it became their new #1 lap time arond their track ..

Yup, no price listed. Anyone want to take a gander as to how much these things go for? btw, the handout had the CCX listed but I'm trying to remember if it was this or the CCXR on display.
