Updated: Spotted:IS300 in Kandahar City,Afghanistan

So I am current in Afghanistan until the begin of Aug this yr and My Squad and I were driving through the city just doing our everyday stuff when i Spotted a Black IS300 parked on the side of a building.. I was surprised and just doubted what I saw, So I'll Called an all stop over the radio and had my team dismount to go "check a area of interest out".. I went up to the car and had my peek at this IS.. It just amused the hell out of me that this car was in this city when 98% of cars in the Kandahar area are crap.. And this was actually a good looking IS with 18" chrome rims.. So after figuring out no one had a camera, we mounted back up and went on with our daily mission.. I swear I am on the look out for the next encounter with the Kandahar IS300.. My camera will be in my pouch and will be ready.. I know I know I have other shit to be looking out for here but freak it...

UPDATE: So its offical I have found the IS300 of Kandahar City Afghanistan. The Owner is a Afgan Police Commander "ANP" for short. He had the car shipped from America he says but however its a right side drive car.. LOL Oh well. We shot the bull for a while and I actually informed him of the Myis site.. SO i snapped a few photo's hope you all enjoy..

What the bloody fuck?

Spotting an IS300 does in fact support your suspicion that 98% of the cars there are total pieces of shit...

Gripping the wheel, his knuckles went white with desire! The wheels of his Camaro exploding on the highway like a slug from a .45. True death: 426 horsepower of maximum performance piercing the night... This is black sunshine.

I think this belongs in the International sub-forum. Maybe the owner is a member here.
