November ’18 – End of Month Hodgepodge

Here we are again, the end of another month. It can only mean one thing… hodgepodge! Where I select all the random photos of vehicles that didn’t get a post to themselves this month. Enjoy.

1995 Isuzu Trooper

Good morning or evening or whatever time it is for you. Here we have a 1995 Isuzu Trooper – basically an SUV that everybody re-branded.  Take your pick: Acura, Chevrolet, Isuzu, Holden, Opel, Subaru, Vauxhall.  Yea yea, I know… most of them are GM products. But hey,  here is the 2nd Generation, US Market Isuzu Trooper. Enjoy

And check out this 1986 Isuzu Trooper II (1st Gen) we spotted a couple months ago.

1997 BMW M3 Coupe

Ahhh, the venerable E36 BMW M3, what can I say about it.  Touted as one of the best all-around performance coupe/sedans of the time, the E36 M3 has a devout and large following of admirers and enthusiasts alike. Enjoy this white e36 M3 coupe that looks to be fairly stock and in good condition.

And check out other M3’s we’ve spotted:

1990 BMW 318i coupe

1987 BMW 635 CSi (E24)

1972 BMW Bavaria (E3)

1995 Bentley Continental R

Hello all. Take a gander at this posh example of luxury and power from the mid 1990’s.  Did you know that the Bentley Continental R such as this model is the first Bentley to feature a body not shared with a Rolls-Royce model since the S3 Continental of 1965.

This Bentley houses a 6.75 L turbocharged V8 under the hood, with an estimated 360hp and 500 lb-ft of torque! But this model was more than just a horsepower sled, it was about fine wood grain, fancy leather and opulence. Imagine what kind of power a 6.75L turbocharged V8 could produce with today’s engine technology.  Enjoy the pics!

October ’18 – End of Month Hodgepodge

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!

August – End of Month Hodgepodge

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.

Gallery

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

And check out some other classic Chevy coupes:

1965 Chevy Chevelle SS (Malibu)

1973 Chevrolet Nova

1967 Chevy Nova SS w/ Blower

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:

1973 Volvo 1800ES Wagon

1988 Volvo 740 Turbo Estate Wagon

Gallery

1980 Porsche 924 Turbo

Spotted this very clean Porsche 924 Turbo at the grocery store parking lot the other day.  The 924 is a really cool example of VAG stretching it’s legs outside of the 911 market.  There were roughly 15,000 of these made worldwide and given the less than stellar reliability of these cars, I’m sure more than a few have found their way to the pick-n-pull yards.  It was dark out and I only had my phone with me so the pics are not great!

Check out other great Porsche’s we’ve spotted:

1978 Porsche 911 SC

1968 Porsche 911T

1985 Porsche 911 Cabriolet

Gallery

1971 Chevy Nova Sedan

Spotted this vivid off-white Chevy Nova in Silverlake area of Los Angeles on a sun filled walk around the local reservoir.  The sedan’s are not the most sought after Nova’s, but the combination of the color and wheels on this one make it especially appealing.  It’s a shame this otherwise very clean car has had a “love tap” on the rear bumper.  Let’s say it just adds to the character!

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

1967 Chevy Nova SS w/ Blower

1973 Chevrolet Nova

1974 Chevrolet Nova Sedan

Gallery

1979 Chevrolet Monza

Spotted this beautiful Chevy Monza street parked in Silverlake.  This is one of the ought forgotten Malaise Era models by Chevy that has decent aesthetics, but lack luster performance. The lack of performance makes sense; it was Chevy’s economy subcompact – with most models rocking a 4-cylinder engine and tuned to maximize MPG.  However, in 1979 you could get a 305 V8 producing a whopping 130HP!

Still, we love to seeing 40+ year old cars driving on the street – it is pure automotive bliss – it is what cars were meant to do.
