July – End of Month Hodgepodge

Here we are, at the end of (ahmmm, actually the beginning) of another wonderful month of car spotting.  This past month brought us some interesting vehicles; including a BMW Z8, a slew of Italian cars, 1 Volvo and a 80’s Dodge Ram Prospector!  To cap it off, here is the July Hodgepodge of vehicles that didn’t quite make it for a feature post.  Cheers

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!

1978 Mercedes-Benz 240D Diesel Sedan

So much chrome trim! My camera phone cannot even handle it.  It does make for some pretty awesome lens flares in the pictures though.  This shining example of a Mercedes-Benz sedan is a 1978-ish 240D Diesel sedan – AKA the indestructible Benz.  This one is in great shape on the exterior and absolutely beams in the sun on a cool winter day. Enjoy!

And of course, check out previous Diesel MB’s we’ve spotted.

1990 Toyota Town Ace Royal Lounge (Diesel)

Happy first 2018 post! Let’s start it off with a bang – and wow this thing is cool.

The 1990 (I think) Toyota Town Ace.  Not just any Town Ace, this is the “Royal Lounge”.  Please somebody tell me there is a better named trim level out there.  “Royal Lounge” exudes excellence and luxury… I mean just look at this van! And it’s 4WD!!  And it’s a diesel!!!  This van is all combinations of right.

I am fairly confident this is an imported model which makes it even cooler. Although I spotted this in Los Angeles, it is rocking Oregon plates.  People will often register imports in other states because it is so difficult to register a imported vehicle in California. Enjoy!

Here we have another iteration of the bullet-proof Mercedes 300D.  This example is shaded in darkness and equipped with 4 doors.

See our previous 300D post for information about this vehicle.

Mid 90’s Range Rover County LWB

The SUV seems to have proliferated the American market in the past few years. Now here is a SUV you don’t see too often; a mid 1990’s Land Rover – Range Rover County in the Long Wheel-Base (LWB) form.  This one does not have much off-road utility anymore, considering how low it is!

Some information about the Range Rover County via Wikipedia:

I got nothing for ya.
