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.

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)

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.

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

1971 Chevy Monte Carlo (1st Gen)

First generation Chevrolet Monte Carlo – the first Monte Carlo we’ve spotted.  Instead of whimsical banter about cars, check out these links for other forms of the name and term “Monte Carlo”.

1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III (5th gen)

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  • “The Continental life is never out of date”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:

1962 Lincoln Continental Sedan

1963 Ford Falcon Coupe

Check out this 1963 Ford Falcon Coupe spotted in Silverlake.  I am a big fan of the Falcon model, especially the first generation such as this one.  Did you know:  The Falcon line was one of Ford’s first mass-produced vehicle that was a unibody design instead of a body on frame?  Most interesting.

Check out other Falcon’s and Falcon variants we have spotted:

1961 Ford Falcon Coupe

Early 60’s Ford Ranchero

1963 Mercury Meteor Custom

1994 BMW 840Ci (E31)

Spotted this lovely 1994 BMW 840Ci with the wonderful pop-up headlamps. The 840Ci was the entry level 8 series in this time period, but it still rocked a V8 and was well equipped in it’s time. I was only able to get shots from the side and rear because it was parked so close to that pickup truck!  Enjoy/

And check out some previous BMW posts:

1981 Toyota Corolla Coupe (TE72)

Spotted a wonderfully bright yellow Toyota Corolla Coupe from the early 1980’s. Toyota decided to sadly switch to a FWD layout with the thrid generation of Corolla. None-the-less, it still sports the peppy 1.8L 4-cylinder motor and rocks a charming boxy sheet metal style.

Check out previous Toyota Corolla’s we have spotted:

1974 Toyota Corolla 1600 Deluxe (E30)

1980 Toyota Tercel Hatchback (basically a corolla 😉

January 2018 Hodgepodge

The first end of month hodgepodge of 2018 and it is … well… not much.  I didn’t have a chance to get out and go spotting much this month with work consuming all but 1 week this month. Enjoy

2006 Maserati Gran Sport Coupe

Spotted this amazingly blue Maserati Gran Sport Coupe in Beverly Hills.  I do enjoy the odd bubbly styling of this generation of the Gran Sport.  The pictures did not turn out the best since I used my phone and it was in a dark garage | enjoy none-the-less!
