1972 Jeep J2000 Truck

Here we have spotted a 1972 Jeep J2000, previously known as the Jeep Gladiator up until 1971.  There is a V8 badge on the side of the truck, so my guess is that is has the 5.0L AMC V8 under the hood.  I especially like the Orange paint job with the white rims.

And check out some other Jeep’s we have spotted:

A Reflection of 2018

The end of the year has come and gone; it is time to reflect and look back on 2018.  And what a great year it was. We had a lot of fun spotting a variety of cars and trucks around Los Angeles.  We are thankful that Los Angeles provides us with warm weather and sunshine for most of the year, thus preserving beautiful vintage, mid-modern and current vehicles from the grips of rust. The near constant sunshine means that people actually DRIVE these cars year round, a blessing not found in many other cities or states. Los Angeles provides for us sunshine and awesome cars, and I want to pass that on to everyone reading.  That’s what this site is all about; finding cool street cars and sharing them with the world. We especially want to thank you, the reader and viewers of LACS. We do this for you.

The 2019 year should shake out to be a big one for LA car spotting.  We plan to expand the web content to include videos and more editorial content.

Also, don’t forget to write 2019 on all your checks and other docs you sign 😉

Here’s a look back at our favorite spotting’s in 2018:

1982 Jeep CJ-7

Here, presented for you on wonderful dead-end street near the Los Angeles “River”, is a 1982 (maybe) Jeep CJ-7.  This is one of the last CJ style Jeep generations made, and a personal favorite of mine.  The CJ-7 still had the gusto and utilitarian looks of the CJ series with some “modern” touches.  It was also still powered by the AMC line of engines. Enjoy

And some other Jeep’s we’ve spotted:

1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Classic Postal Jeep DJ-6

1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

We are on a roll with the cool Jeeps this week.  Last weeks Postal Service DJ chassis Jeep hearkened back to a time when AMC was proudly developed Jeep models.  This 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer was sadly the last generation of the Grand Wagoneer, after Chrysler bought Jeep and discontinued this model.

Classic Postal Jeep DJ-6

Here we have a retired postal jeep, either a DJ-5 or DJ-6 model from my research.  These DJ chassis Jeeps were produced for United States post office use for over 30 years and were in service far longer than that.  This individual converted their DJ chassis into a civilian, RHD (right hand drive) road-going Jeep cloaked in a desert sand paint job.
