[photos] Odd car in Omaha, NE

It's not often I see a car I don't recognize. Especially a recent make.

Yesterday in Omaha I spotted a car badged as a Salon. It looks like a Japanese sedan, though I can't twig the make from the body lines. (And just try Googling "salon" — that term is damned near Googleproof.) Collapse )

Sorry for the crummy photos, but all I had was the phone cam.
