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:
1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1
1968 Ford Mustang Coupe
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:
1975 Chevy Corvette
1973 Chevy Corvette Stingray (C3)

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
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:
1971 Chevy Monte Carlo (1st Gen)

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.
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
And don’t forget to check out other Chevy Pickups we’ve spotted:
1960 Chevy C-10 Fleetside Pickup
1958 Chevy Apache Pickup Truck
1967 Chevrolet C-10 Pickup Truck
Here we have a revered and somewhat rare Volvo 1800ES Wagon. The 1800 line from Volvo was built from 1961 to 1973. The Wagon version, was only made for two years, from 1972 to 1973, which is why the wagon is a bit more of a rarity.
I did not have the opportunity to get some pictures of the rear or full car pictures, as the Volvo was obscured by street things. Instead, I took artistic liberty to bring you some close ups and odd shots. Enjoy.
Check out some other Volvo’s we’ve spotted:
1x Volvo P1800 & 2x Alfa Romeo’s
1988 Volvo 740 Turbo Estate Wagon
We’ve spotted this wonderful Dodge D100 work truck (or if you are just looking at the front emblem, a “DGE” truck) parked on the street in Frogtown the other day. This one is sporting a blueish paint job with a worn down bed top on the back end. By the way, the name Frogtown is an amazing choice for a town name. Cheers
And check out some other Dodge Pickups we’ve spotted;
1984 Dodge Ram D150 Prospector – Short Bed
1983 Dodge Ram 50
Early 70’s Dodge D-Series Pickup
Wow. What a beautiful car. This Buick Electra is a somewhat rare two door version that is owe so gorgeous. The 255 denotes the inline 6 engine mounted under the bonnet. Enjoy these pics.
