You’re cruising down the freeway, T-tops down with the crisp air blowing all around you. The sun trickles in through the tree canopy as the speedometer needle reaches for another peg. Your Trans-Am engine rumbles as you cross past a brightly colored billboard. Your sense heighten, your hair stands on end as your rear-view mirror illuminates blue and red. SHIT!!! It’s the Five-Oh… the Police. You hit the GO pedal with all your might, slamming it to the floor as the transmission downshifts and the V8 roars to life. You fly down the open country road as the police interceptor becomes a small dot behind you.
Remember the movie “Smokey and the Bandit”? That was a brief intro to get you fired up for the car we spotted today. While not the iconic Black and Gold Pontiac Trans Am from the movie, the Trans Am we spotted still conjures up images from the movie: 1970’s bravado, chest hair and bell bottom jeans. Now where is the Snowman?!?
Enjoy this spotting, with more to come! And don’t forget to check out other classic Pontiac’s we’ve spotted.

What do we have here? A 1985 Ford Bronco II.
Back to normal car spotting you say? You bet – finishing out the year strong.
This Bronco II is sporting a “custom” grille and what looks to be Ford Explorer rims, although I can’t be certain.
I’ll have a video out of this car before the end of the year. It will be a trial run of what I want to do for 2019. Enjoy.
Take a look at this flat black 1976 Corvette C3 that I spotted. This vette looks to still have the original rims installed and is sporting a custom chrome side exhaust, that really pops against the subdued flat black paint. Enjoy.

Spotted this lovely mid 1960’s Chevy C/K series pickup truck street parked in a quiet neighborhood of Los Feliz. It appears that the truck has had some body work recently performed. Perhaps the next step is the paint! Regardless of paint, you cannot help but be drawn in by the sheet metal and the classic styling from General Motors in the 1960’s. Enjoy!

1982 Chevrolet Silverado C10 Pickup

Hello. Spotted recently around Los Angeles is this 1982 Chevy C10 pickup with a hard top cap. This C/K truck still proudly displays it’s 4×4 badge is clearly on the fender. This one caught my eye because it appears to be in great condition – sporting a nice red paint job and even the chrome is still shining bright! 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!
Happy Labor Day everyone! I hope you all are enjoying your holiday, whether you get to relax with friends and family or if you have to work.
Spotted this beautiful Cadillac Sedan parked near Venice, CA. I believe it is the DeVille model but it might also be the Fleetwood. Let me know – how can one tell the difference? It may lack the finish and polish of a restored version, but this Caddy still has flair and I love the body lines. Enjoy
Check out some other Cadillac’s we’ve spotted:
1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham
1967 Cadillac Sedan De Ville
1977 Cadillac DeVille Sedan
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.
Here, presented for you on wonderful dead-end street near the Los Angeles “River”, is a 1982 (maybe) Jeep CJ-7. This is one of the last CJ style Jeep generations made, and a personal favorite of mine. The CJ-7 still had the gusto and utilitarian looks of the CJ series with some “modern” touches. It was also still powered by the AMC line of engines. Enjoy
And some other Jeep’s we’ve spotted:
1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer
Classic Postal Jeep DJ-6

Hello and happy Independence Day – The day American’s celebrate the pillaging of land from…. I mean, a day American’s celebrate their independence from Great Britain. We commence celebrations with cookouts, booze, bonding with friends and family, and massive amounts of fireworks. Here at LACS, we will celebrate with a throwback to some of our favorite classic American made cars we’ve spotted.
First generation Chevrolet Monte Carlo – the first Monte Carlo we’ve spotted. Instead of whimsical banter about cars, check out these links for other forms of the name and term “Monte Carlo”.
