Spotted this beautiful Chevy Monza street parked in Silverlake. This is one of the ought forgotten Malaise Era models by Chevy that has decent aesthetics, but lack luster performance. The lack of performance makes sense; it was Chevy’s economy subcompact – with most models rocking a 4-cylinder engine and tuned to maximize MPG. However, in 1979 you could get a 305 V8 producing a whopping 130HP!
Still, we love to seeing 40+ year old cars driving on the street – it is pure automotive bliss – it is what cars were meant to do.
Sorry for the hiatus everyone! Rest assured, I have still been spotting cars AND bringing out the camera to take pictures. Los Angeles is filled with unique and interesting cars, so many in fact, that I would never get where I’m suppose to go if I stopped and took a picture of everyone!
Here’s an example of mid 80’s boxy SUV styling in the form of an Isuzu Trooper. I love how Isuzu (GM) made a mid-sized SUV with only 2 doors ( technically 3 doors to be politically correct)!! This example is in less than perfect shape – but it’s perfect in our eyes 🙂
A two for one special on this Saturday. A late 1960’s Midget MG and an early 1970’s Ford Ranchero.
