1976 Chevrolet Corvette (C3)

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.

And check out other Corvette’s we’ve spotted:

1984 Audi 5000 S (C3 – Audi 100)

The ought forgotten Audi 5000 series was a transitional period for Audi, with humdrum styling and nothing to note in the performance department. Yet this vehicle was on Car and Driver’s Ten Best list for 1984 and 1985. Over 30 years later, this Audi 5000 still holds it’s head high as it meanders through the streets of Los Angeles searching for grocery parking lots.

Some information about the Audi 5000/100 via Wikipedia:

The Audi 100 and Audi 200 are four-door, front-engine, front- or all-wheel drive full-size/executive sedans manufactured and marketed by the Audi division of the Volkswagen Group for model years 1968 through 1994 — across four generations (C1-C4), with a two-door model available in the first and second generation (C1-2) and a five-door wagon available in the third (C3) generation.
The third generation Audi 100/5000 was widely noted for its advanced aerodynamic design solutions, which included pin-located, flush side windows — and achieved a drag coefficient of 0.30.
The C2 and C3 models of the Audi 100 were marketed initially in the United States as the Audi 5000 (1984-1988) and in South Africa as the Audi 500.
