April 2020 – End of Month Hodgepodge

It’s the end of April and another month of quarantine and solitude has passed.  While our view of normality and our social lives have withered, our daily walks and Zoom calls have increased. With all that has happened and will happen, there will always be cars parked on the street 🙂 Enjoy

1992 Chevrolet Astro EXT Gemini Conversion Van

Spotted this Chevy Astro Gemini Conversion van on a walk.  When I was younger, I thought that conversion vans were kind of shitty but I now see the appeal.  What better way to transport your whole family in comfort and in a reasonable sized package. Also, the paint scheme on these conversion vans are simply amazing.  Google C”hevy Astro conversion van” and you will find a ba-gillion different color and pinstripe design combos.

My family used to own a regular non-conversion style Chevy Astro that was a stick shift of all things – I think it was maroon in color. How cool is that. Enjoy

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.

Don’t forget to check out some other Dodge/Plymouth spottings:

Jan.2020 – End of Month Hodgepodge

Hey all,

Another month has come and gone and I am sure that countless cars have been spotted in the street! Unfortunately, most of the spotting has not been done by me.  Take a peak at some random cars that have been LA car spotted.

February is a new month and I just grabbed a new lens for the “spotting” camera – fun times ahead!

May 19′ – End of Month Hodgepodge

Hello all,

Welcome to a slightly delayed End of Month Hodgepodge for May 2019. June should be a good month for car spotting, as most of the classic and more rare cars have come out from hibernation. I have a few pictures I took yesterday, and you are in for a treat in the coming month. Stay tuned!

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
