March 19′ – End of Month Hodgepodge

It’s the end of the third month of 2019 and that means it’s hodgepodge time.  Pull out your cast iron cauldron and ladle, because we’re throwing you a mix-mash of different cars. Enjoy.

1970 Mercedes 280 SE Coupe

Oh hey, I didn’t notice you there.  I’ve been once again busy finishing up a film project.  Remember that one I thought I was finished with? Turns out we had to do some pick ups and re-shoots so NOW I am officially finished.

And with that, I bring you an early 1970’s SE coupe by Mercedes-Benz.  I wish I had my nicer camera with me when I spotted this beauty.  The two tone color looks fantastic in person, and the car is an overall clean example of early 1970’s Benz styling.

And check out some of old school Mercedes-Benz’s we’ve spotted:

1971 Mercedes Benz 280s (W108)

1974 Mercedes-Benz 280C (W114)

1983 Mercedes-Benz 300TD Wagon (W123)

Enjoy

December ’18 – End of Month Hodgepodge

You guessed it – the end of the month and it’s time for a hodgepodge of vehicles that didn’t quite make the cut for a full post. This hodgepodge has some old school flair, an early 90’s Alfa Romeo Spider and a pink Lincoln! Enjoy the pics.

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.

Marriage, Maui & a 1971 Porsche 912

Oh, hey there.  I didn’t notice you standing there, poking my shoulder and screaming at me, “When will you publish a new LA Car Spotting post?!?!”

The truth is, I’ve been busy getting married and honeymooning.  It takes a lot of planning and time to have a wedding ceremony and reception – especially if you do not have a wedding coordinator. But once the big day comes, it is all worth it. With so many friends and family members celebrating a joyous event with you, it’s unquestionably one of the best days.

Oh, the honeymoon was nice too.  Maui, HI – a slice of paradise.  And as we come full circle back to automobiles, we rented a 2 door Jeep Wrangler Sport to cruise around Maui.  It was a fun vehicle and sits way higher than I expected.  And what an off-roading vehicle it is, crushing obstacles such as gravel, dirt and small undulations with ease (/sarcasm – didn’t do any true off-roading)!  Also, Maui is Toyota Tacoma country. Holy cow (they have a lot of cows too), there were so many Tacoma’s of all generations I couldn’t keep track.

Coming back to write a LACS post seems so natural. I missed it and I apologize for the lapse in posts.  In November, I will try to do a post every other day to catch up!

Cheers

August – End of Month Hodgepodge

As is usual for the end of the month, we post pictures of the vehicles that did not make the cut for a full feature.  To be honest, there were not many this month but none-the-less, let the hodgepodge commence.

1971 Mercedes Benz 280s (W108)

I spotted another old school W108 Mercedes Benz.  This one is the 280s version from roughly 1971, so it is likely less equipped than the 1970 Mercedes Benz 280SEL (W108)  we spotted last week. Interestingly enough, this one also appears in white and has similar wheels – however this one is in less than great condition and sports some rust in spots. Enjoy

Check out some other Mercedes Benz models we spotted:

1999 Mercedes Benz SL500 (R129)

1982 Mercedes-Benz 300D Sedan

1974 Mercedes-Benz 280C (W114)

1970 Mercedes Benz 280SEL (W108)

Spotted this very clean and classy 1970’s Mercedes parked on the street the other day.  I wish I could have taken some pictures of the front of this Benz, however it was parked behind another vehicle we spotted on this site (HONDA CVCC).  Less than 20,000 of these 280SEL units were produced worldwide. The car had the longer wheelbase of the W109, but lacked the pneumatic suspension and other features of the 300SEL.

Check out some other sweet, older style Mercedes-Benz sedans:

1971 Mercedes 280SE Sedan (W108)

1978 Mercedes-Benz 240D Diesel Sedan

1992 Mercedes-Benz E500

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

1970 Volkswagen Squareback (Type 3)

I absolutely love the simple naming mechanism for this vehicle and vehicles made by VW in this era.  Type 1, Type 2, etc… – so easy. And this model is just called squareback – so explicable. This one is sporting some healthy dents and dings in the body, as well as an interesting faded tan paint job.

End of Year Hodgepodge – 2017 Finale

Well that’s a wrap to the 2017 car spotting year. It’s been a fun year and we have spotted tons of cool cars and trucks.

This is the hodgepodge of all hodgepodges.  Thanks for following along and I’ll see you in 2018 for another fantastic year!
