1960 Chevrolet C20 Pickup

Spotted this 1960 Chevy C20 pickup after the rain subsided.  I have a particular distaste to the styling of the 1960-1961 Chevy C/K trucks. Mostly, it’s the turn signals and embellishment around them that kills it for me.  The rest of the truck is fine, but I can’t support those nostrils on the front end.  This is just an opinion and and here at LACS, we accept all cars as equal… no matter how ugly they are. Enjoy.

1972 Jeep J2000 Truck

Here we have spotted a 1972 Jeep J2000, previously known as the Jeep Gladiator up until 1971.  There is a V8 badge on the side of the truck, so my guess is that is has the 5.0L AMC V8 under the hood.  I especially like the Orange paint job with the white rims.

1965 International Harvester D-Series Pickup Truck

Here is one that you don’t see everyday – A International D-Series pickup from what I’m guessing is 1965.  I tend to see the International Scouts much more often, but this is a first for me. The contrast between the paint job and the paint on the wheels is startling. Enjoy some pics of this now defunct light American truck company (they make big trucks now).

1985 JDM Nascar Toyota Pickup

I don’t know what is going on with this truck but I kind of like it.  It is a mash-up of many different styles, almost as if somebody pulled different modification choices from a hat. It’s a JDM Nascar pickup truck and I dig it’s uniqueness. Bravo to it’s indecisive owner.

1982 Chevrolet Silverado C10 Pickup

Hello.  Spotted recently around Los Angeles is this 1982 Chevy C10 pickup with a hard top cap.  This C/K truck still proudly displays it’s 4×4 badge is clearly on the fender. This one caught my eye because it appears to be in great condition – sporting a nice red paint job and even the chrome is still shining bright! Enjoy

Happy Independence Day

Hello and happy Independence Day – The day American’s celebrate the pillaging of land from…. I mean, a day American’s celebrate their independence from Great Britain.  We commence celebrations with cookouts, booze, bonding with friends and family, and massive amounts of fireworks. Here at LACS, we will celebrate with a throwback to some of our favorite classic American made cars we’ve spotted.

1973 Ford F-150 Pickup Truck

Hi there and I hope you all are having a great Sunday.  Today we spotted a well-used 1973 Ford F-150 Pickup truck.  This one has “been around the block” as the saying goes.

1960 Chevy C-10 Fleetside Pickup

Spotted another Chevy pickup truck, very similar to the Apache we featured not long ago.  This one has been nicely restored with fresh paint and a healthy dose of lowering.  I have read that these C/K pickups from 1960 were also called “Apache” but I’m unsure. Instead of the term “fleetside”, to indicate a flat bedside, Chevrolet used the term “wide-side” to indicate the same thing to buyers, according to Wikipedia.  I like this and I’ve always been intrigued by classic pickup trucks.  However, I don’t think I could daily drive one.  Would you buy an old truck?

1958 Chevy Apache Pickup Truck

Take a gander at this “purposefully worn-down” 1958 Chevy Apache Pickup. What a cool name for a cool truck – the Apache. Although, to give an American truck the name of an Indian tribe seems a bit of a hypocrisy on Chevrolet’s part. None-the-less, this amazing example of late 1950’s styling does not escape my lens (I’m finally bringing out the “real” camera again). It has custom wooden bed sill slats with “F.K.O Garage” painted on the side.  I’ve researched this name but I could not come up with any results.

January 2018 Hodgepodge

The first end of month hodgepodge of 2018 and it is … well… not much.  I didn’t have a chance to get out and go spotting much this month with work consuming all but 1 week this month. Enjoy

1967 Chevrolet C-10 Pickup Truck

Something must be said about the subdued nature of old work trucks.  It is in their utilitarian “blood” to be used, abused and receive snarling glances from passer-bys.  This C-10 Chevy is one of those examples.  Tattered and torn, this truck shows the tell-tale signs of age, use and probably a little neglect.  But as it is parked on the street, I assume that 327 under the hood still puts the ponies to the pavement.
