1992 Chevrolet Astro EXT Gemini Conversion Van

Spotted this Chevy Astro Gemini Conversion van on a walk.  When I was younger, I thought that conversion vans were kind of shitty but I now see the appeal.  What better way to transport your whole family in comfort and in a reasonable sized package. Also, the paint scheme on these conversion vans are simply amazing.  Google C”hevy Astro conversion van” and you will find a ba-gillion different color and pinstripe design combos.

My family used to own a regular non-conversion style Chevy Astro that was a stick shift of all things – I think it was maroon in color. How cool is that. Enjoy

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:

1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III (5th gen)

The venerable Lincoln Continental. First introduced in 1939, the Lincoln Continental is a luxury car from Ford intended to adapt European “continental” luxury style and sell to the masses in the USA.  With only a brief hiatus here and there, the Continental nameplate is still going strong today.

Lincoln had a slew of slogans used in their print ads which are just fantastic.  One says “Lincoln makes America’s most distinctive cars”.  That may be true, as the Lincoln continental design language usually stood out as something special, something different. Some other fun ad slogans:

  • “Uncommon luxury for the uncommon man”
  • “Modern living on the move”
  • “The Continental life is never out of date”
