My wife found this and passed it along...According to TMZ, he's driving a Toyota Cressida. :lol:

Awesome! All of my friends question why in the hell I love my Cressida, and no I have a celeb to back me up. Just one question...................why oh why does it have to be one as crazy as Gibson!


Off topic of the off topic. Last year Gibson was filming a movie here on the north shore in mass. A friend of mine is a local cop in the town where they filmed and was having a debate with fellow officers about his duty hat which is different than the others. One of the other cops saw Gibson walking by and said "Hey Mel.... what do you think about his hat?" To which Gibson said "Makes you look like a pinhead!" You can guess his new nickname! Not too many cops get there interoffice nick name from Mel Gibson, lol.

Wow, he has better taste in cars than in movies, lol. On a side note I recall that when he got pulled over for his famous roadside rant he was driving a Lexus LS 430.

It looks like he's yakin' on a cell phone (walkie-talkie style) while drivin'. :shock: Hey, ain't that illegal! :lol:

He was probably on the phone with his divorce attorney,hence the frustrated facial expression. Meanwhile,his soon to be ex-wife is probably on the phone with Maine Line Excotics about a certain Pegasus White Toyota...

He was prolly trying to avoid the media. He's prolly been driving that thing around for years, and the paparazis just now realized it, lol. There's a very small group of people (myself included) that notices people driving cressidas.

They're just jealous!

I usually chuck a deuce to anyone driving a Cressida but mostly they look back with a confused look. But I get thumbs up from ae86 drivers all the time :lol:

Right! About a week ago I saw an x6 on i20 so i picked up the pace to about 90 to catch up but i think i scared the guy when i swooped in behind him. He quickly threw on his blinker and exited the high way. my bad.

But i did get the thumbs up from a kid in a s14 today. :tu:

I always notice any out of the ordinary car, but cressidas are near the top of my "cars to look for" list. So far I've seen 2 in close by, both mx83s. I also saw 2 more 83s in Tallahassee last time i was up there.
