Spotted this Toyota Century at a car show the other day. This vehicle served as Toyota’s flagship luxury vehicle for many years. The RHD Century we spotted here is in really good condition and is finished in a nice black paint. It’s great to see a Japanese market-only vehicle on American soil. Enjoy.
Hello and happy Monday. If you have the blues because the weekend has come and gone, than check out this awesome Ford Ranchero I have for you! It has a beautiful cream color with the red and black paint down the side. Woooooo weeee – take a gander at this and tell those Monday blues to hit the road! Enjoy
And check out some other Ford Ranchero’s we’ve spotted:
Today we have on display, a Alfa Romeo GTV6 that was spotted in LA. This beautiful Alfa looks to be in exceptional condition, sporting some aftermarket rims and a brilliant red paint. The GTV6 sounds great and has great handling for it’s period. And you cannot mistake it’s uniquely Alfa Romeo styling. This car checks a lot of boxes for enthusiasts looking for a somewhat rare, desirable and fun-to-drive car. Enjoy.

Prepare to be le amazed. In front of le eyes, we have a wonderfully beat up 1978 Renault LeCar. If you remember when this came out, and you sprinted to the dealership to grab one, I am very le sorry for you. BUUUUTTT, if it wasn’t for le original owner of this car, than we would never have been able to le spot it on le street. Okay I’m done.
And check out the one other le French car we’ve spotted:
Hello all. Spotted this lovely BMW M5 that looks like a street car, prepped for racing. Fitted with a roll cage and some sticky tires, this thing looks ready to attack any track. This was parked near a BMW specific auto garage and tuning garage around Silverlake. They always have awesome cars parked near their place and it’s a great place to go car spotting! Enjoy.
And check out some other cool BMW’s we’ve spotted before:
Spotted this Chevy C10 pickup street parked in a quiet neighborhood. The first generation C10 had a mid cycle update during 1963/1964. It is easy to distinguish between the earlier and the later 1st generation C10’s by the windshield. This first generation C10 has a windshield that wraps around and slants towards the rear. The later half of this generation has a windshield that does not wrap around as much, and finishes with a slant towards the front. Take a look at this 1965 Chevrolet C-10 Pickup we spotted a few months ago to look at the subtle difference. Enjoy
Here is a lovely looking Datsun 510 Sedan rocking a dilapidated paint scene, or as some call it, the patina look. Parked in the shade around Silverlake, this Datsun 510 is a refreshing sight to see in a world of modern cars. Enjoy!
Hello. Spotted a Early 1990’s Toyota HiAce the other day. Not just any HiAce though; this is the Super Custom Limited model, which was spec’d very nicely when released. This one is also a Turbo Diesel which makes it even more cool, and it’s Right Hand Drive on American shores. Truly a gem on the LA streets.
One must remember that the HiAce was originally introduced to the market as a delivery truck/van. And like all things automotive, the consumer wanted more luxury and more velvet. The thirst for “super awesome limited luxury custom EFI Turbo S Type R” model vehicles could not be quenched. But this HiAce gets close. Enjoy
Another month has come and gone – but the posts and car spottings have not. We will honor the forsaken time with an end of month hodgepodge, as is ritual at LACS. Spring has sprung and the car community is abuzz in the Southland. Cars are making their way to meets and the smell of petrol is in the air. When the tranquility of spring settles in for myself, prepare for a bounty of posts and car spottings. Enjoy.
It’s the end of the third month of 2019 and that means it’s hodgepodge time. Pull out your cast iron cauldron and ladle, because we’re throwing you a mix-mash of different cars. Enjoy.
You’re cruising down the freeway, T-tops down with the crisp air blowing all around you. The sun trickles in through the tree canopy as the speedometer needle reaches for another peg. Your Trans-Am engine rumbles as you cross past a brightly colored billboard. Your sense heighten, your hair stands on end as your rear-view mirror illuminates blue and red. SHIT!!! It’s the Five-Oh… the Police. You hit the GO pedal with all your might, slamming it to the floor as the transmission downshifts and the V8 roars to life. You fly down the open country road as the police interceptor becomes a small dot behind you.
Remember the movie “Smokey and the Bandit”? That was a brief intro to get you fired up for the car we spotted today. While not the iconic Black and Gold Pontiac Trans Am from the movie, the Trans Am we spotted still conjures up images from the movie: 1970’s bravado, chest hair and bell bottom jeans. Now where is the Snowman?!?
Enjoy this spotting, with more to come! And don’t forget to check out other classic Pontiac’s we’ve spotted.
