Houston Sightings

I just moved from Austin to Houston. As I don't think we have a dedicated "Houston Sightings" thread, here it is...

I spotted a Deep Blue Mica Aero in the La Maison parking garage today. I wonder if it's the same Aero I looked at buying last spring. Was it somebody here?

Re: Houston Sightings

I always see a Black linear parked at the AT&T store on 1960 & 249. I'm tempted to just walk in one day, ask around, but then I'd be labeled a car... stalker? confused

Hey I've seen that one too. Maybe two weeks ago I actually saw some girl pulling out of the parking lot in it, first time I'd seen it moving,

Re: Houston Sightings

Re: Houston Sightings

Was driving from Galveston to Houston earlier and spotted a black Linear in the side road. Driven by a woman who was chatting it up on the phone. Pic for reference.

Re: Houston Sightings

Wow...spotting an oncoming 9-2x from a ways off, and managing to snap a high-quality pic as she passes is nothing short of bad ass.   up

I freaked out when I saw it. I went all ninja mode and got it out.

Thanks, though!

Re: Houston Sightings

I have a feeling that a 9-2x with flames may look pretty awful regardless of the amount of light. Let’s see that sucker!    banana

Re: Houston Sightings

Try it now, I just took the link from my email so I wasn't sure if it'd work or not but I replaced it with a photobucket pic so it should work. It's blurry though lol barely can make out anything

Re: Houston Sightings

I was actually pretty surprised when I got outside since pretty much right after I bought my 92x, I went up to Lubbock and haven't seen any other Saabarus or even Subarus so seeing one parked right next to me was surprising haha

Re: Houston Sightings

Wow...I haven't seen any others in Houston in like a year but saw two this week, both blue:  First one was an '06 Linear rolling south on US59 & exited @ University Blvd., near Telfair.  This morning, I had a brief chat with a guy in what looked like an '05 Aero at the light @ Brazos & Gray (Downtown.)  Not sure who it was on here, but he mentioned he was a member & had 160K+ miles on his.

Re: Houston Sightings

Hey Gonzo,

I was the deep blue 05 (165k) in downtown earlier today. The car is holding up well but is probably at that point where everything needs to be replaced soon. Plenty of dings and dents since 2005 (Original owner).

I think there are two others of my make and color. Also see a desert silver and red one in downtown from time to time.

It was good chatting.
