Hey there, look what we have spotted recently – the gloriously boxy and small SUV from Dodge in the late 1980’s – dubbed the “Raider”. Now this car is basically a re-badged Mitsubishi Pajero and that’s OK with us, in matter of fact it probably makes this Dodge SUV more competent. This boxy two-door SUV checks all the boxes for LACS. Enjoy
And check out some other small boxy SUVs we’ve spotted:
1985 Ford Bronco II
1986 Suzuki Samurai (Jimny)
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:
Spotted this Mitsubishi Delica, referred to in North America as the Mitsubishi Wagon. Seriously, this van was not even given a proper name for the North American market, simply being called “Wagon”. We spotted a 1990 Toyota Town Ace Royal Lounge (Diesel) in a previous post. I like these funky Japanese vans from this era – they have a certain je ne sais quoi about them.
The quick “hyper-car” from Mitsubishi is an all out tuners dream. Turbocharged four-cylinder with AWD and tons of aftermarket support. Loud, fast and abrupt are good descriptors for the AWD Evo X. Enjoy this tastefully modified example. Considering this car is no longer produced in the U.S. , I think the Evo X will become a collectors car 2 decades from now.
A little Paul Walker quote thrown in on the rear.
It’s the end of the month and that can only mean one thing – Los Angeles Car Spotting photo Hodgepodge. We compile all the automobiles that didn’t get featured this month but still deserve an honorable mention. Enjoy!
