    This will clearly date me as ancient but....
    my first wife
    worked as a campus guide at Brandeis University - right down the road from the Polaroid Company - and she was often used as a subject while they were testing the first 15 second film (B/W, of course.)

    It was pretty contrasty and exposure was difficult but it looked like magic.

    I encountered face to face with one of this in 2001 when I was in hurry to get the passport photos. I went to Kmart and I was made to stand upright against the wall, and the women said: "Look at the camera will ya!" - and bang, the flash was blindingly bright right into my eyes.

    Yap yours is almost the same alien I saw that day, only a bit smaller.

    Might also be a Chevy Lumina Euro. We had one of those cars when I was a kid. 1992 model, white with a spoiler and alloy wheels. It was a pretty pimpin' car for a family sedan! :lol:
