Hey Car Tech Crew! Just wanted to send along this LOL Car I spotted in the parking lot of MicroCenter. ...because us computer nerds like to keep it classy. --Spotted by Steven P. during a trip to Houston, TX
The Caddy Camper. Words simply cannot describe this thing. Saw it in a Home Depot parking lot (also in St. Petersburg). I wasn't the only one to stop and take a picture. I truly wonder what goes on in that camper. Oh wait, like the Crown Vic, I don't want to know... --Donovan M.
I was lucky enough to snap a pic of this doozy today! It's your typical Crown Vic, but the mason-turned-body-worker had the bright idea to tile the top where the upholstery used to be. I hope you get a kick out it! Enjoy! -- Taylor F.
Another Southern Oregon gem. Looks like a 1990s Mercedes 300 E(l Camino). The green astroturf on the deck for the non-scratch surface and the tie-downs are options from the Pro-Tip list.

Sorry for the blurry picture. I was laughing until the owner took exception and I needed to make a quick exit. Those exhaust pipes look similar to the ones I put on my Honda XR 75 that I had when I was growing up. Thanks for collecting these pictures.
Hi guys. I was on my way to work one day and as I was about to get on the freeway, I saw this getting off the freeway. When I went home that night, I spotted it parked in this lot and had to turn around and take this picture. I called it 'the party bus' but I'd be afraid to set foot inside. I guarantee this is a one-off. Enjoy.
What is it with people having things stick out of their Smart cars? This guy has a wind-up key by the license plate that is somehow hooked into the electrical system of the car and spins when the car is turned on.
"Something tells me that the driver of this donk has zero street cred when rolling through the 'hood in this Olds Cutlass. That said, the finish on the car looks pretty good and it even comes with a matching Hello Kitty pillow on the front dash."--Shan N., Atlanta, GA
"Spied this just north of Salt Lake City, Utah. Yes, in tow is a totally gutted, roll-bar reinforced, radiator-modified, mud-caked, canoe-carrying, Baja-buggy style (wait for it)... Pontiac Fiero! Love the podcast."--Jack from Salt Lake City
"Hey guys, I've seen this car twice now and I finally was able to grab a picture of this beauty in Woodinville, WA. I was laughing so hard I couldn't come up with a witty comment/caption for this. Check out the awesome joints connecting the different segments! Thanks!" -Ryan W.
"For your LOLCars pleasure: It's sort of not the General Lee. I only got this one picture because I took it while walking up to the car and rounding to the driver side. As I got a few steps past the driver's side and turned around - there was someone getting into the car. The must have been right behind me as I walked up. This is a shame as I didn't get a good pic of the flag on the roof. Or the "yeah it's got a Hemi" stickers on the rear side windows. I only got one glimpse inside but I seem to remember racing-bucket look alike seat covers." --Jeff S. from Grants Pass, OR
"My sister and I saw this car at a festival. It's not exactly a LOLcar, but we could not figure out what it was. We tried Google photo search on the symbol, but no luck. I thought maybe you all might know."--Stephen from Ohio
"This Cadillac/El Camino was sighted at Charlotte Motor Speedway last weekend. It's a 1976 model that could be yours for $6,500. The car actually showed nicely (believe it or not)."--Ed O. in Charlotte, N.C.
"I just came back from a vacation in California. Here are a couple of photos of a car I found parked in Los Angeles. When I saw it I thought of your show immediately, pulled over, and took the photos."--Alan in Toronto
"What attracted me to this car in Lake Placid, N.Y., was the double red racing stripe on the back hood, which was so out of place. Then, I noticed the bumper stickers were literally holding onto or taking the place of rocker panels. Around front the nice unmatched yellow lower bumper trim. Well, it matches the back but what's with the bottom of each door painted a different color?"--Michael "Cedar Eden" from Saranac Lake, N.Y. (I'm driving racing red Kia Forte coupe LOLed up with lots of flashing red LED lighting inside--guess I'm a closet LOLer.)
"My sister-in-law found this on in northern New Jersey. The picture was taken a
little too close, but you can see the lovely styling touches like lots
of chrome and air horns on the hood. (Who does that?!?) Haha!"--Dan
"I saw this Ferrari-themed Scion on my way to work. What the picture doesn't show is the racing stripes down the middle of the car (white with smaller yellow and green)."--Brandon J. from Washington, D.C.
"Enjoy the podcasts on a weekly basis. Have been dowloading regularly for a few years now, back here in Blighty. I have been meaning to send you these LOL photos ever since you started featuring them on your show. I took these in August '09 in the local supermarket carpark in Solihull (home of Land Rover) one early morning. It's an original Mini jacked up on what looks like a Suzuki chassis. Apologies for the quality of the photos, I only had an old Nokia at the time but have upgraded to an iPhone since."--(Mr.) Jan Prins
"I saw this car the other day in traffic on my way to work on Hilton Head Island, S.C. He must own an aquarium or have a strange obsession with fish. As a caviat to Hilton Head, this car had out of state plates--Georgia ones to be specific. Comments, Antuan? Not your usual sight on La Isla..."--Jim M.
"Anyway, I was on my way home from Maryland after checking out a 2003 Toyota MR2 Spyder, which I bought, when I made a pit stop in a service area on I-95 that I came upon this car. The quality of the pictures aren't the greatest since it was taken at night with the camera from my Droid.
Just in case you guys are wondering, yes, that is a fairy poster of the Hoff."--Ray from Cherry Hill, N.J.
"Here are some shots of a Ford with U.K. license plates on the highway from Antwerp to Belgium. I took these shots in September 2008. Found them recently when cleaning up my system."--Marc in Luxembourg
