Spotted a lovely 1970’s Datsun 1300 truck as the sun set on Atwater village in Los Angeles. The truck sat idly on a small side street as festivities ensued nearby. has a Fiji water bottle. The paint looks relatively nice and the truck overall appears to be in great condition. Enjoy.
Spotted this Chevy C10 pickup street parked in a quiet neighborhood. The first generation C10 had a mid cycle update during 1963/1964. It is easy to distinguish between the earlier and the later 1st generation C10’s by the windshield. This first generation C10 has a windshield that wraps around and slants towards the rear. The later half of this generation has a windshield that does not wrap around as much, and finishes with a slant towards the front. Take a look at this 1965 Chevrolet C-10 Pickup we spotted a few months ago to look at the subtle difference. Enjoy
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.

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.

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).

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.

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
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.
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.

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?

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.
