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.

1984 Chevrolet C10 Silverado (stepside)

Spotted a bright red Chevy C10 pickup truck in Burbank not long ago.  This was from a few days ago, when Californian’s were allowed to go outside for leisure (expect other large cities or states to follow this order)!  I have a few more spotting pictures in the bank that I’ll post over the next few days to keep us all sane.

Don’t forget to search for your favorite vehicles at the bottom of the web site.  Here is a sample of a few C10’s and Silverado’s we have spotted.

2019 Aston Martin Vantage

Spotted this lovely 2019 Aston Martin Vantage parked near the office last week. Word on the street is that Aston Martin is having some supply line troubles and is greatly reducing the number of vehicles it is producing at the moment. Glad I could find this one out in the world. Couldn’t get a shot of the front because of it’s positioning but the back looks pretty damn sexy! Enjoy.

1962 Plymouth Valiant Sedan

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′):

1974 Ford F-100 Ranger XLT

Spotted another cool truck the other day.  This one is a mid-70’s Ford Ranger in the XLT trim.  I am really digging the two-tone paint and the general aesthetics of this particular truck. With the resurrection of the beloved Ford Ranger, now finally in dealer showrooms, it is refreshing to see the wise older sibling still roaming the streets. Enjoy

Check out some other Ford Rangers we have spotted:

1983 Dodge Ram D150 + Electric Chat

Hey all. Spotted a lovely 1983 Dodge Ram D150 pickup truck.  This Ran, parked around Highland park, is in great condition and seems mostly stock. Do I have to reiterate the joy in finding a vintage vehicle on the road in Los Angeles!? It warms the soul to see these types of older model vehicles slowly meandering around neighborhoods and bustling city streets.

On a side note, I’ve often wondered what would happen to older vehicles if even MORE strict emissions standards were in place. California already has some of the most stringent standards in the nation (while many other states have followed their lead), with an exemption to vehicles made before 1975. If the laws were changed, would we be robbed of seeing a moving, driving example of automotive history on a daily basis? Would all vintage vehicles be vanquished to the confines of a museum or a garage, only allowed to be driven xxx amount of miles per year? Street parked cars of the current and past years would be a thing of the past.

As climate change continues to be at the forefront of national and worldwide news, and automotive emissions taking the fair share of the emission contribution, it only seems inevitable for something of this nature to take affect.  The automotive industry seems to be barreling towards an electric future and I believe the classic car industry will follow suit. Electric crate motors are on the horizon, and many classic car restorers are already doing custom electric conversions. The aforementioned company has already begun a limited production on Electric Minis, running 100 of them out of their factory. I recently watched a video of a fully electric 1970’s Porsche 911 that retained a manual transmission. How is that even possible without a petrol engine?!

Electric is the automotive future and we better get used to it.

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.

1987 BMW M5

Hello all.  Spotted this lovely BMW M5 that looks like a street car, prepped for racing.  Fitted with a roll cage and some sticky tires, this thing looks ready to attack any track. This was parked near a BMW specific auto garage and tuning garage around Silverlake. They always have awesome cars parked near their place and it’s a great place to go car spotting! Enjoy.

1962 Chevrolet C10 Pickup Truck

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.
