Lamborghini, Kit Car, or ?

My first thought on a quick glimpse was a Lamborghini.  Anyone know what make and model this is?

Red Tailed Hawk

A young hawk in the wild.  It was very tolerant of humans. I got to within 10 ft of it for the photo op and it viewed me with curiosity. It was very aware and it exuded intelligence.

Salad King - Toronto, ON

Ever since I first read about Salad King, I wondered why it was called Salad King when its theme is Thai food. It's as contradictory as a restaurant named a chophouse serving Mexican food. Anyway I'm sure there is a history behind why it's called Salad King but I'm too lazy to research it.

Denny's - Brampton, ON

Despite the plethora of good eating in the GTA, I suppose there's always room for chains like Denny's. Denny's won't win many gourmet awards but is for those who like to stick with safe food options.

Banh Mi Boys - Toronto, ON

I'm more than a little leery of eateries where the lines are long with the hip black bedecked twenty something generation. It's too often hype and flash with taste secondary. Banh Mi Boys seemed to fall in this category so as I stood in line, I was preparing myself to be disappointed.

Steer Inn Burgers - Richmond Hill, ON

I had very low expectations and many preconceived notions walking into Steer Inn, thinking it would be a greasy spoon and a run down ramshackle dive serving wafer thin tasteless burger patties of 20's.  I love it when my lowly expectations are shattered and exceeded.

La Estacion - Waukesha, WI

La Estacion wasn't where I expected to be, outside the downtown area rather than in it. That worked out great and parking here was plentiful and easier to deal with than in downtown.

Rudolph's Original Pork Rinds

Rudolph's claims "Nobody Makes A Better Tasting Pork Rind" and claims to have a secret recipe behind their great taste. But the claim doesn't ring true in execution.  The pork rinds are fine but there's nothing about these rinds that sets Rudolph's apart from the competition.  It's basic, crunchy, light, but has no discernible secret seasoning that gives it a special zing.

Pine Cone Restaurant - Johnson Creek, WI

Judging by the crowd, Pine Cone is a highly popular and well known food destination.  Being next to the outlet mall has most likely helped increase traffic flow.

Taco Bus - Tampa, FL

Taco Bus is a bus yet it isn't a bus.  If you're looking for a bus, it's in the back, not visible from the street. The first time here can be a tad confusing with 4 spots where you on a first glance you can potentially go to order. Most prominent are two buildings. Then there is a backside trailer and the titular bus.

Catfish Country Restaurant - Bartow, FL

Catfish was hopping despite being mid afternoon.  Being located in Bartow, I'll have to assume the patrons were all area locals, locals that know this is one of establishments to frequent.
