The end of the year has come and gone; it is time to reflect and look back on 2018. And what a great year it was. We had a lot of fun spotting a variety of cars and trucks around Los Angeles. We are thankful that Los Angeles provides us with warm weather and sunshine for most of the year, thus preserving beautiful vintage, mid-modern and current vehicles from the grips of rust. The near constant sunshine means that people actually DRIVE these cars year round, a blessing not found in many other cities or states. Los Angeles provides for us sunshine and awesome cars, and I want to pass that on to everyone reading. That’s what this site is all about; finding cool street cars and sharing them with the world. We especially want to thank you, the reader and viewers of LACS. We do this for you.
The 2019 year should shake out to be a big one for LA car spotting. We plan to expand the web content to include videos and more editorial content.
Also, don’t forget to write 2019 on all your checks and other docs you sign 😉
Here’s a look back at our favorite spotting’s in 2018:
What do we have here? A 1991 Miata with some… modifications. I mean, who doesn’t love the Mazda Miata? It’s a low-cost, lightweight, RWD reliable Japanese sports convertible. That’s a great combination of adjectives right there, and it led Mazda to great sales success when it first launched. Mazda STILL makes the Miata, almost 30 years later. If anyone ever asks you what car they should buy, no matter what their criteria is, the answer is always Miata.
So the answer is Miata, and the answer to this owner was to pimp out his Miata and make it “Euro Spec” – as the badge indicates. I’m not sure the answer IS Miata in this case. This Miata looks like an early still-in-training attempt from Xzibit and the “Pimp my Ride” crew. I mean, the wheel style and fitment are OK but the wing looks like it was installed upside down?! There are definitely some questionable modifications performed on this Miata. However, I always respect people’s vehicle modification choices, even if I don’t agree with them.
Also, Merry Christmas to everyone. Enjoy your time with family and friends. And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, than happy holidays for whatever you celebrate.
Ok, here we are – at the grand finale. This is the last post from the LA auto show, than we are back to normal LA car spotting. In this post, we take a tour of the LA auto show underground, where the modified cars live. Widebody Tesla, BMW’s, Porsche 911 with a Martini Livery and some low riders! Enjoy
Up for viewing today is the day 2 of 3 post of the Los Angeles Auto Show. Some manufacturers in this batch include pictures from Jaguar, Genesis, Chevy, VW, Ford, Rivian, Nucleus (WTF?), Kia, Toyota, Jeep, and Mazda.
Stay tuned for part 3 of the LA auto show where we will post up the modified vehicles.
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
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.
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!
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
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
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.
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.
