After spotting the super-awesome Opera Light Van the other day, I've been keeping my weather eye open (and low-end cameraphone ready) for similar finds: parked vehicles that look mundane at first glance but reveal themselves to be something much more upon closer inspection.

See, GM figured that $12,964 ($26,109 in 2007 dollars) might seem like a lot to spend on a rebadged Cavalier, so they went the extra mile and added gold trim to the Cimarron, creating the incredibly classy Cimarron d'Oro Edition. And here's one that's still carrying the Cimarron flag high!

DISCUSSION

Wow. That Cimmaron is in rather decent shape. I haven't seen one of those in ages (thankfully). I believe back in the midwest these have all returned to the Earth. That's the thing about California, sure it helps preserve all the old cool cars, but also the the ones that really should be iron oxide by now.
