1987 Renault Alliance GTA Convertible

“Looks like a Chrysler” my friend said when I showed him this picture of a 1987 Renault Alliance.  I said to him, “yea, it does kind of look like a K platform car”. We’re not totally wrong in thinking this. The Alliance was manufactured and marketed in North America by American Motors Corporation (AMC) – the same company that was contributing to Jeeps development in the 1970’s and 1980’s.  AMC has a long and interesting history that started out in the 1950’s – they produced their own vehicles but always had their hands in partnerships and developments during their existence.  During a decade of their existence, from the late 1970’s to the late 1980’s, Renault and AMC were intertwined. In a strange string of events, shareholder ownership of AMC was changing hands from Renault to Chrysler at the same time that this 1987 Renault Alliance was hitting the market. Coincidence!>?!>!?!?

Anyway, enjoy some pics of this sweet 1987 Renault Alliance Convertible and don’t forget to check out some other Renault and AMC car’s we’ve spotted:

1978 Renault LeCar

1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

A Reflection of 2018

The end of the year has come and gone; it is time to reflect and look back on 2018.  And what a great year it was. We had a lot of fun spotting a variety of cars and trucks around Los Angeles.  We are thankful that Los Angeles provides us with warm weather and sunshine for most of the year, thus preserving beautiful vintage, mid-modern and current vehicles from the grips of rust. The near constant sunshine means that people actually DRIVE these cars year round, a blessing not found in many other cities or states. Los Angeles provides for us sunshine and awesome cars, and I want to pass that on to everyone reading.  That’s what this site is all about; finding cool street cars and sharing them with the world. We especially want to thank you, the reader and viewers of LACS. We do this for you.

The 2019 year should shake out to be a big one for LA car spotting.  We plan to expand the web content to include videos and more editorial content.

Also, don’t forget to write 2019 on all your checks and other docs you sign 😉

Here’s a look back at our favorite spotting’s in 2018:

Happy Independence Day

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.

End of Month Hodgepodge (June)

For this month’s hodgepodge, I’ll post pictures from a recent charity car show I attended.  I brought out the Canon T3i and a prime 50mm lens with me.  In doing so, I was not able to capture a lot of full car pictures.  Instead, I focused my attention on the details.

Enjoy a 50mm Crop-frame sensor perspective of some classic cars.

End of March – Hodgepodge

It’s that time of the month again… where LACS rounds up the reject photos that didn’t make it to a full-on blog post.  Usually, a LA Car Spotting post will arrive to your divine sleepy eyes in the morning, to brighten up your day, but tonight… it shall appear before you to to liven your night!  Tonight, I write the hodgepodge and sip a cheap imported beer from Germany, a Henninger Lager to be exact. Prost!
