Corvallis SVX sighting (no it wasn't mine)

So the night I got my SVX registered, the wife and I went to Winco and the first row I drive down, there on the end is a black SVX, which I parked next to. He/She was gone when I came out of the store but hopefully they noticed my SVX World Network decals Weird thing was, it had the same wheels on it as mine (and the front ones were on backwards) but they were polished/chromed instead of the matte finish mine are, was this an option? I can't say I've ever seen 'em chrome before...

There's actually two other ones in town that I know of, another pearlie (which I haven't seen since I got mine) and a silver one...

I see Chrome Stock wheels on occasion. In fact about 10 years ago an SVX at K-mart (I think they worked there, it was there alot) had a red SVX with chrome stock rims. I've probably seen at least 2-3 others around town too.

On that note, I have seen 3 SVXs on Mill Plain in the last 2-3 weeks that I've never seen before. White one with aftermarket rims driven by a 40s something gentleman, a Burgendy driven by a younger gal, and another white one driven a few days ago by a 20 twenties, early thirties gentlemen. Every time I wasn't in my SVX

OH! And my wife saw an ALL white one like Earl's cottentail on Mill Plain but she said it wasn't as nice (no offense to anyone if its theirs ), and the white was more of a "regular white." Hmm..gonna have to look for that one.

Well, I saw a 92 Pearl again yesterday in my area. Driven by a 60something lady. This is the 2nd time I've seen her and both times I've been in my RX I'm afraid to honk, she would think I'm some nut (correctly so).

Another sighting in Seattle

Driving through Belltown in Seattle yesterday afternoon, I saw a Laguna blue SVX parked in a 3 minute zone, so I stopped for a few minutes to find out whether there's another SVX owner living in my neighborhood. It turns out the owner is a young man named Scott Carmony (sp?) who lives north of Seattle and was visiting some friends. He's heard of the SVX World Network but hasn't joined yet, so I urged him to sign up to the Network and to NWSVX (and I got his e-mail address).

Scott has definitely spent some time modding his '94 L: replacement JDM engine, Stebro exhaust, clear corners, heavy tinting, alarm system with remote starter, ....

Yeah I see quite a few SVXi down here (Corvallis). Just yesterday I was driving east on 34 going to I5 and passed a laguna blue. I tried to catch up, thought it might be my old one but it wasn't. Hondasucks, you might see me around, I sold my SVX but I drive a black 90 DSM now.

well, my car's pearl white with Crater Lake plates and John & Phil's plate frames, and I have SVXWN decals on the side windows. There's only one other pearlie in town that I see driving around, the other one is off of 36th st on Lincoln Ave (I've never seen it move) and the other one I see parked down on Harrison, usually between like 25th and kings, but it's not as straight as mine..)
