Hello all!

We made a visit to the LA Auto Show this year and it was a blast.  A lot of electric vehicle and autonomous tech dominated the show.  Today is part 1 of 3, where you’ll find vehicles from Porsche, Cadillac, Hyundai, Mercedes, and BMW. Enjoy

November ’18 – End of Month Hodgepodge

Here we are again, the end of another month. It can only mean one thing… hodgepodge! Where I select all the random photos of vehicles that didn’t get a post to themselves this month. Enjoy.

October ’18 – End of Month Hodgepodge

Happy end of October! Another month has concluded and with it, the LACS hodgepodge makes it’s appearance.  Yet again, this one is light because of the wedding.

This month, we only posted 2 car spottings.  One was a 1972 Chevy Monte Carlo cloaked in black and sporting excellent chrome wheels; a perfect match. We also saw a 1970 Cadillac DeVille – man are those big cars.

Enjoy this and look forward to even more next month!

July – End of Month Hodgepodge

Here we are, at the end of (ahmmm, actually the beginning) of another wonderful month of car spotting.  This past month brought us some interesting vehicles; including a BMW Z8, a slew of Italian cars, 1 Volvo and a 80’s Dodge Ram Prospector!  To cap it off, here is the July Hodgepodge of vehicles that didn’t quite make it for a feature post.  Cheers

2008 Ferrari F430 Spider

Spotted a red Ferrari F430 spider parked outside a very large house in Beverly hills area. It’s not every day you see a Ferarri parked on the street.

I don’t do exotics on this page very often, but I now have a goal to mix up the offerings at LACS.  More exotics & more luxury while sticking with the classic and mid-modern vehicles that catch my eye.  Enjoy these pics

2003 BMW Z8

Spotted this gorgeous BMW Z8 roadster coupe in Malibu the other day.  The gentleman had just bought it and was driving it back to Los Angeles.  It was in beautiful shape and very low miles. Did you know that less than 6,000 were produced worldwide and only about 2,500 made it to the USA?  Awesome to see one in person being driven.

The End of (Last) Month Hodgepodge

Work Work Work… That is all I have been doing lately.  Working non-stop does not leave enough time for spotting cars!  Well here is the Hodgepodge that was suppose to go up May 31st.  Better late than never I say.

1994 BMW 840Ci (E31)

Spotted this lovely 1994 BMW 840Ci with the wonderful pop-up headlamps. The 840Ci was the entry level 8 series in this time period, but it still rocked a V8 and was well equipped in it’s time. I was only able to get shots from the side and rear because it was parked so close to that pickup truck!  Enjoy/

And check out some previous BMW posts:

1987 BMW 635 CSi (E24)

1972 BMW Bavaria (E3)

Tesla Model 3 – New Release

Well here is something we don’t often feature on LA Car Spotting: a brand new car.  This one happens to be the Tesla Model 3, touted as the “affordable” electric car from Tesla. It’s not every day you see one of these, in fact, they seem to still be quite rare, even in the sprawling metropolis called Los Angeles.

It looks like a car but runs on electricity and drives itself… so is it an appliance?   It sure is a fast appliance; hitting 0-60 mph in about 5 seconds.  I bet your toaster can’t do that.  A striking aesthetic difference on the Tesla Model 3 (and Model S for that matter) is the lack of a front grille. And it doesn’t need one because, well, no radiator. Enjoy these pics.

January 2018 Hodgepodge

The first end of month hodgepodge of 2018 and it is … well… not much.  I didn’t have a chance to get out and go spotting much this month with work consuming all but 1 week this month. Enjoy

2012 Chevy Corvette ZR-1

Spotted this handsome C6 Corvette ZR-1 in a Metallic Gray just the other day. Posted up somewhere in Culver City, I’m glad to see someone is driving this to the office.

On a side note, have you all heard all the buzz about cryptocurrency, blockchain and Bitcoin? I read an article the other day about how stock prices of seemingly small unheard-of companies are skyrocketing at the mention of implementing “blockchain technology”.

I got to thinking, if I say blockchain and bitcoin enough, will my views skyrocket? If i change my blog name to “blockchain car spotting”, will I see 2,500% viewership gains?  Let’s find out: blockchain blockchain blockchain blockchain.

All kidding aside, look at this ZR-1.
