March 2020 – End of Month Hodgepodge

Hey all,

The month of March has come to a close and what a month it has been.  It was a turbulent month, filled COVID-19 panic and non-stop news coverage on the issue.  One could say that March Madness takes on a whole new meaning. The president has called for the veil of chaos to be lifted by Easter – some applaud the move and some say it is too early – I tend to agree to the latter. I think we are in this state of existence for the next few months, at least until widespread testing for both the virus and the antibodies becomes readily available. Only time will tell.

I hope that I can continue to spot cars and share with everyone in the coming months. My mobility around Los Angeles county has been limited to my own neighborhood and the occasional trip to the grocery store. In order to keep the content rolling, some cars I spot in the coming months may be a little more mundane.

In the meantime, enjoy this sparse end of month Hodgepodge for March 2020.

1965 Mercury Monterey Coupe

Hey everyone,

Spotted a 1965 Mercury Monterey Coupe in a fabulous faded yellow the other day (when Los Angeles was not locked down).  I have always been a fan of big old coupes – look that the size of that trunk!!  Now that I’ve been coupe’d up in our house for the past 2+ weeks, I can’t wait to get out and go to a car show. Spring is typically the start of the car show season around the nation, so I know many of you will feel the same. Enjoy these car spotting photos to hold you over!

And check out some other Mercury cars we’ve spotted before:

1963 Mercury Meteor Custom

1971 Mercury Cougar Convertible

1988 Dodge Colt Vista

Spotted a Dodge Colt Vista while on a walk last month.  This “mini” minivan may not be the most exciting vehicle to grace our earth, but I can honestly say that I’ve never seen one in person. It stands out to me as being very practical and compact – LACS approved.

Don’t forget to check out some other Dodge/Plymouth spottings:

1980 Porsche 911 SC

Hey all,

Today we are showcasing a beautiful 1980 Porsche 911 SC wrapped in a what can only be described as a Gold Velour. The cactus and concrete make for a great background as well. This Porsche is in fantastic condition and appears to be mostly original – worth quite a lot on the open market.  This would be a “bring-a-trailer” high bidding car for sure!

Don’t forget to check our previous 911’s we spotted (Or scroll to the bottom of the page and search for ‘Porsche’ or’911′):

1978 Porsche 911 SC

1984 Porsche 911 Carrera

1968 Porsche 911T

Enjoy. Cheers

Jan.2020 – End of Month Hodgepodge

Hey all,

Another month has come and gone and I am sure that countless cars have been spotted in the street! Unfortunately, most of the spotting has not been done by me.  Take a peak at some random cars that have been LA car spotted.

February is a new month and I just grabbed a new lens for the “spotting” camera – fun times ahead!

1965 Ford Thunderbird

Hello and happy Sunday! Today we have a 1965 Ford Thunderbird spotted on my way to work this past week.  We caught a sunny day for the pictures – it has been a bit overcast this winter.

These past few months have involved numerous hours being allocated to my “real job” – and it’s been hectic and time consuming. Now that the project has simmered, the real fun can begin.  I’ll be back in action this year with new cars and car spotting.  That is unless my money-making-job wants to suck up some more time than it’s rightfully granted. Enjoy

1984 Alfa Romeo GTV6 3.0

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.

Check out some other Alfa’s we’ve spotted:

1x Volvo P1800 & 2x Alfa Romeo’s

1965 Pontiac Bonneville

With more than 50 years under it’s belt, this full sized Pontiac could use some love.  I am sure this is a handful to drive around in Los Angeles, considering it’s rather large stature.  Just look at the overhand behind the rear wheels! How many bodies do you think you could fit in the trunk?

And check out some other classic Pontiacs we’ve spotted
