    Toyota Land Cruiser, or the Lexus twin, the LX-470?

    If its not as big as it appears, then it could be one of the small Asian SUV's, such as the Hyundai Tucson.

    Of course, it could be a minivan too. My money's on the Land Cruiser though.

    The red across the ends of the bumper throw me off. Are those lights? I don't recall seeing those on the Land Cruiser or Lexus LX.

    Why are you inquiring? Did this guy hit-and-run you or someone you love?

    [​IMG] No, mental exercise.... THose red 'spots' are indeed lights.. Didn't the older Landcruisers (90's) have them?

    To my eye, the rear pillar and rear window height is too low in proportion to the liftgate and body height and the width of the vehicle for the Landcruiser/LX450/LX470.

    I'm guessing Kia or Hyundai.

    I think its silver... or perhaps white with bad lighting.

    This whole things reeks of "cameraphone" picture to me... precisely why I have never used one. Ugh.

    I bet this is like the boyfriend comes home from work early to find a strange car in the driveway scenario. Just remember, if you stop to reload your revolver twice in the middle of an "alleged" crime of passion, its not good for your court case.

    [​IMG] Seriously, it is nothing like that. What I am trying to figure out is if that auto is from the 70's or 80's. I don't think so because of the design of the car. Thanks Kent, Bjorn, Rookie, and Kalbert.

    Hyundai Santa Fe would be my guess. Not a car from the 70s/80s.

    The back window and rear "bumper" actually looks like the back of a 90s Rolls... a lot like it actually.

    I agree.

    And not at all like a 90s Rolls. There's no boot.

    looks like a Porsche Cayenne.

    and i think it's too narrow to be a Land Cruiser.
