When we were last in Phoenix, I saw two. One passed me on the freeway (I was doing 75 and he was proceeding at "an unlawful speed"...;-)
Then there was one in front of the restaurant we went to. Both were red, so coulda been the same one since both were in the Scottsdale area.

There is one near me in southeaster PA. I have seen it from a distance numerous times, but the driver doesnt go slow enough for me to ever get a good look at it.

Looks a lot like a T-Rex without the canopy. Entirely different powertrain and much less expensive, though.  Makes one wonder why the T-Rex is so expensive.

First a Slingshot shows up, then a Bigfoot Siting, better lock it up and hide the keys Steve, he's coming... :o

I bet if you compared product cost for these two vehicles, it would be very close.
