I saw a silver Kizashi last week; the first time I’ve seen a silver model driving in the wild. There was an AWD S trim in that color at the used car dealer I got mine at, right as I finished buying my black GTS Sport, however; I’m not sure I count that as driving in the wild, though lol.
But anyway I didn’t notice it at first because we were both in the left turn lane leading to the freeway, and it was a few cars up. I caught a glimpse of the spoiler through a couple windshields in front of me and thought it looked familiar... Then we got the green light and sure enough it was a Kizashi, albeit with smoked taillights, which I’ve never seen in the wild before, either. Can’t help but wonder if it was maybe the same car I saw two years ago at the dealer, now modified. That’s where things ended, though, as I made the turn onto a street instead of the freeway and the silver Kizashi continued onto the freeway. I regret not going on the freeway too because I could have taken the next offramp and still be fine with getting to my destination.
And I have another entry, although perhaps the reverse. There was a house with a red Kizashi on my commute to college; I used to think we were probably the only Kizashi owners in the whole city. I’d seen him driving a few times, but most often just saw the Kizashi parked on their property. While I finished college, I still take part of that route, and unfortunately I can’t remember the last time I saw the Kizashi parked there... It feels like maybe some point late last year. So I’m sad to say that they probably got rid of it or it got totaled. I’ll update if I see it again but I’m not counting on it.
I have a feeling it was a manual version, because the one time we were side by side, on a street that led to the freeway, they shot off faster than I suspect a CVT model could. The dude hauled lol. That was a couple years ago and I’m still bummed I didn’t realize he was next to me until after he took off. It’s really rare to see two Kizashis side by side on the road like that and I doubt it will happen again for me anytime soon, if ever.
