It’s the end of April and another month of quarantine and solitude has passed. While our view of normality and our social lives have withered, our daily walks and Zoom calls have increased. With all that has happened and will happen, there will always be cars parked on the street 🙂 Enjoy
Spotted a cleanly modified Honda S2000 of the AP2 generation (2003 to 2009). The Honda S2000 embodies the time-tested Honda tradition and formula they founded with the original S500, S600 and S800. Front engine, rear-wheel drive convertible coupe with a naturally aspirated engine, the S2000 is objectively good looking and a true drivers car. This S2000 is sporting a hard top and classic Enkei RPF1 rims/wheels that are are popular in the Honda crowd. Enjoy.

“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:
Welcome to a slightly delayed End of Month Hodgepodge for May 2019. June should be a good month for car spotting, as most of the classic and more rare cars have come out from hibernation. I have a few pictures I took yesterday, and you are in for a treat in the coming month. Stay tuned!
Oh hey, I didn’t notice you there. I’ve been once again busy finishing up a film project. Remember that one I thought I was finished with? Turns out we had to do some pick ups and re-shoots so NOW I am officially finished.
And with that, I bring you an early 1970’s SE coupe by Mercedes-Benz. I wish I had my nicer camera with me when I spotted this beauty. The two tone color looks fantastic in person, and the car is an overall clean example of early 1970’s Benz styling.
And check out some of old school Mercedes-Benz’s we’ve spotted:
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.
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:
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 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!

The venerable Lincoln Continental. First introduced in 1939, the Lincoln Continental is a luxury car from Ford intended to adapt European “continental” luxury style and sell to the masses in the USA. With only a brief hiatus here and there, the Continental nameplate is still going strong today.
Lincoln had a slew of slogans used in their print ads which are just fantastic. One says “Lincoln makes America’s most distinctive cars”. That may be true, as the Lincoln continental design language usually stood out as something special, something different. Some other fun ad slogans:
- “Uncommon luxury for the uncommon man”
- “Modern living on the move”
- “The Continental life is never out of date”
Enjoy these pics and don’t forget to check out the other Lincoln continental we spotted:
