Spotted this Chevy C10 pickup street parked in a quiet neighborhood. The first generation C10 had a mid cycle update during 1963/1964. It is easy to distinguish between the earlier and the later 1st generation C10’s by the windshield. This first generation C10 has a windshield that wraps around and slants towards the rear. The later half of this generation has a windshield that does not wrap around as much, and finishes with a slant towards the front. Take a look at this 1965 Chevrolet C-10 Pickup we spotted a few months ago to look at the subtle difference. 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!

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!
This… this is LA Car Spotting. Rust, faded paint, mismatched panels, dings dents and a lot of character. Why is this the epitome of the ethos of LA Car Spotting? We capture vehicles that are found on the street – most of the time, these vehicles are daily driven. These are not garaged vehicles to be displayed at a museum or pampered by their owners. A vehicle like this 1973 3rd-gen Chevy C/K truck does what it’s suppose to do – be driven. Enjoy.
Some info via Wiki:
An all-new clean sheet redesign of General Motors’ Chevrolet and GMC brand C/K-Series pickups débuted in mid-1972 for the 1973 model year. Development of the new third-generation trucks began in 1968 with vehicle components undergoing simulated testing on computers before the first prototype pickups were even built for real world testing. The redesign was revolutionary in appearance at the time, particularly the cab, departing from typical American pickup truck designs of the era. Aside from being near twins, the Chevrolet and GMC pickups looked like nothing else on the road. The third-generation trucks are colloquially known as the “Square-body” or “Box-body” generation.
