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.

And check out some other cool BMW’s we’ve spotted before:

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. Enjoy

1993 Toyota HiAce Super Custom (4th Gen)

Hello.  Spotted a Early 1990’s Toyota HiAce the other day. Not just any HiAce though; this is the Super Custom Limited model, which was spec’d very nicely when released.  This one is also a Turbo Diesel which makes it even more cool, and it’s Right Hand Drive on American shores.  Truly a gem on the LA streets.

One must remember that the HiAce was originally introduced to the market as a delivery truck/van. And like all things automotive, the consumer wanted more luxury and more velvet. The thirst for “super awesome limited luxury custom EFI Turbo S Type R” model vehicles could not be quenched.  But this HiAce gets close. Enjoy

1970 Mercedes 280 SE Coupe

Oh hey, I didn’t notice you there.  I’ve been once again busy finishing up a film project.  Remember that one I thought I was finished with? Turns out we had to do some pick ups and re-shoots so NOW I am officially finished.

And with that, I bring you an early 1970’s SE coupe by Mercedes-Benz.  I wish I had my nicer camera with me when I spotted this beauty.  The two tone color looks fantastic in person, and the car is an overall clean example of early 1970’s Benz styling.

And check out some of old school Mercedes-Benz’s we’ve spotted:

1966 Mercedes 230 Sedan

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.

And check out some other Jeep’s we have spotted:

1976 Chevrolet Corvette (C3)

Take a look at this flat black 1976 Corvette C3 that I spotted.  This vette looks to still have the original rims installed and is sporting a custom chrome side exhaust, that really pops against the subdued flat black paint. Enjoy.

1974 Toyota Corolla 1600 Deluxe (E30)

Look at this beautifully kept vintage Toyota Corolla.  For the most part, this vehicle looks to be in factory condition, which is rare to find on these older Toyota’s.

And of course some information via the Interwebs:

The Corolla E30 was the third generation of cars sold by Toyota under the Corolla nameplate. It was built from August 1974 to July 1981[1] and marked Toyota’s greatest growth in the United States in the wake of the fuel crisis. In addition to its sister model, the Sprinter, there was a redesigned-body version built by Toyota affiliate Daihatsu, called the Daihatsu Charmant. While there were certain fourth-generation models with a longer model life, this generation, when considered as a whole, was the longest-lived one, possibly due to the worldwide recession in the 1970s. A large range of cars were built using this chassis, including Corollas, Sprinters, Daihatsu, and the sporty Levin and Trueno models with the DOHC motor, with a fuel injection upgrade added to Japanese Levin models in January 1977.
