I saw a frosty monotone 03-08, looked lowered, with dark tint, uncovered steelies, and window visors, on St. Laurent Bl. northbound last evening.

Probably not someone here... there's not a whole lot of Ottawa vibers on here. A few, but I don't recall any of them having a Frosty vibe.

Depends... did you work there in 2007? Would have been the last time I was there. Mainly for brake issue - I think I was there three times for the same issue.

On Friday I saw an 03-04 Salsa monotone with upper spoiler, and American Racing 15" grey rims (unlowered - miles of wheel gap) at the driving range on Navan Road. Parking lot was too busy for me to snap a pic.

Possible lurker or formerly active member?

I was behind an 03-08 abyss with tinted tails and blue badge overlays on the Lees Ave. offramp this morning. Looked like a 30-something female driver.

Finally spotted a Tesla Roadster in Ottawa this morning. Love it!

Still haven't seen a Volt around yet.

I've seen a yellow one around the west end.

I live near the tech sector in kanata so I frequently see lambos, ferraris, 911s, etc driving around.

That's so true - so many $$$ cars around Kanata!
I'm also in a hot-spot for cars - living in McKellar Park and working in Westboro. Quite a few late model Aston Martins, Ferraris, and 911s along Richmond Road.

They must have been delivered in the past couple of weeks around here. :-)

I saw a white one in Westboro the other day (speeding excessively, and in serious need of a carwash), and a silver one plugged in, in Carp today. I'm very happy to see these cars on the road!

I saw two Tesla roadsters in Paris and Amsterdam.

Test drove a Nissan Leaf at Hunt Club - going to try and get my name in for one on the next round of reservations!

cool - yeah I saw your thread with the photos, and read about how you got a ride in the Leaf - Nice! I hope it works out and you end up getting one! I'd be like the other people on here who'd have the Volt instead (if it made financial sense for me) though!

Yeah thought about the Volt, but I'd still need to get oil changes. LOL.

So, I was out last night at Fratelli, and then Trio (in Westboro).
There was a Fisker Karma there! :o It had Florida plates, and there was a young guy in his late 20s in it. First time I've seen one in person. :D

Also there was a modified Gallardo (loud!) hogging all the attention, but I was more crazy about the Fisker.

Saw a silver one ('06?) with blue badges and blue painted pillars, rear deck spoiler Westbound on the 417 near Island park. Must have gone by them 3 or 4 times in traffic, kept trying to catch their eye and give em a hello.

Side note, always had bad service with Turpin, Jack May is a pain to get to. Going to get my PCM done at Surgenor now that I know they can be trusted to work on my Vibe! Be on the lookout for my bone stock Abyss.
