1971 Ford Mustang Coupe

Here we are, back at it with a new month of car spotting here at LACS.  It’s December; the Christmas decorations are out and people are out shopping en masse. Meanwhile, I’m over here taking pictures of a 1971 Ford Mustang Coupe parked on a side street.  This one appears to be a 6-cylinder model and is in awesome condition. Enjoy the pics.

And check out other Mustangs we’ve spotted:

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.

1991 Mitsubishi Delica LS Van

Spotted this Mitsubishi Delica, referred to in North America as the Mitsubishi Wagon. Seriously, this van was not even given a proper name for the North American market, simply being called “Wagon”.  We spotted a 1990 Toyota Town Ace Royal Lounge (Diesel) in a previous post.  I like these funky Japanese vans from this era – they have a certain je ne sais quoi about them.

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

1972 Chevy Monte Carlo

Hello everyone and apologies for the hiatus.  Spotted this flat black 1972 Chevy Monte Carlo just yesterday around Hollywood.  I think the Monte Carlo is an underrated American classic that has great styling and poise. This one benefits from upgraded rims and tires, sporting appropriate white sidewall lettering. Enjoy

And check out some previous Chevy’s from this era:

1972 Chevrolet C10 pickup (CK Chassis)

Spotted another Chevy draped in blue on the same block as the 1969 Chevy Impala the other day.  By the looks of it, this Chevy C10 Pickup has been recently repainted and restored.  Even the chrome was in great shape! Almost look as if it came off the showroom floor.  And it has some of my favorite period wheels; the moonie style wheels! Enjoy

1969 Chevy Impala Hardtop Coupe

Spotted this beautiful 1969 Chevrolet Impala Coupe in Venice, CA not long ago.  It is sporting a 327 badge and draped in a deep blue. Apart from the missing trim piece along the waistline and the sizable dent above the rear wheel, this Impala looks to be in great shape aesthetically.  I can only hope that the 327 V8 is equally as healthy to propel this beast down the road. Enjoy

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

1999 Mercedes Benz SL500 (R129)

1964 Volvo PV544

Would you look here; we spotted an old school or “vintage” as the kids call it, Volvo PV544.  This Volvo from the mid 1960’s seems stuck in time, retaining automotive styling I think resembles that of the 1940’s.  This Volvo is clad in faded red and looks to be very much original. Enjoy

And check out some other Volvo’s we’ve spotted:

1977 Honda CVCC

Here on display is a Honda CVCC from the mid to late 1970’s.  The acronym CVCC stands for “Compound Vortex Controlled Combustion” and was introduced from Honda as a reduced emissions engine. This little Honda is basically a Civic, but received a model name that was the same as the engine name.  I wonder how many other manufacturers have named the car model the same as the engine?

1984 Toyota Celica Supra

I’ve been stumbling upon some pretty cool vehicles recently, and this Celica Supra from the mid-1980’s does not disappoint.  You may be asking yourself, “Don’t confuse me, is it a Celica or is it a Supra?!” Well the Celica and Supra were one in the same when introduced in 1979.  The “Supra” was an offshoot of the Celica lineup, boasting increased performance and unique styling that differentiated it from the standard Celica.  Fun fact: The Toyota Supra had an inline six-cylinder engine installed since it was introduced in 1979 – Nice!
