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:
1972 Plymouth Duster
1989 Dodge Raider
1967 Plymouth Valiant Signet
1984 Dodge Ram D150 Prospector – Short Bed
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.
1982 Chevrolet Silverado C10 Pickup
1962 Chevrolet C10 Pickup Truck
1972 Chevrolet C10 pickup (CK Chassis)
1965 Chevrolet C-10 Pickup
Take a look at this beautiful Hardtop 280SL spotted in Burbank, CA. This Mercedes-Benz is a cherry and looks mostly original – which is always a plus at LACS. Enjoy.
And check out some other 2-door Mercedes we we’ve spotted.
1970 Mercedes 280 SE Coupe
1999 Mercedes Benz SL500 (R129)
1990 Mercedes Benz 560 SEC AMG
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.
It’s the end of the month and that can mean only one thing… the end of the world. Woooops, I meant to say it’s time for the LACS end of month hodgepodge.
However, If you have read the news recently, it may appear that we are royally fu^c#3d. Will this continue to spread and disrupt global supply chains, commerce and productivity? Will this affect our daily lives? It sure as hell will – and stock markets around the world are factoring that in to share prices. BUUUUT, the COVID-19 virus will not wipe out humanity as we know it and the world is not coming to an end.
So while the world panics over a deadly and highly contagious virus, I’ll be outside taking pictures of cool cars (while keeping my distance from other people)! Just remember to wash your hands and stop picking your nose (or at least cut back)!!! In the meantime, sit back and enjoy some cool cars.
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′):
1978 Porsche 911 SC
1984 Porsche 911 Carrera
1968 Porsche 911T
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!
Hello and happy Sunday! Today we have a 1965 Ford Thunderbird spotted on my way to work this past week. We caught a sunny day for the pictures – it has been a bit overcast this winter.
These past few months have involved numerous hours being allocated to my “real job” – and it’s been hectic and time consuming. Now that the project has simmered, the real fun can begin. I’ll be back in action this year with new cars and car spotting. That is unless my money-making-job wants to suck up some more time than it’s rightfully granted. Enjoy
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:
1966 Ford F-100 Long Bed Custom Cab
1969 Ford F-250 Ranger
1967 Ford F-100 Ranger
1964 Ford F-100 Pickup truck
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.
So, you may have noticed that I have been absent from posting for the past few months. I wish there was some extenuating circumstance that would absolve me from my absence – yet there is not. I have simply been too LAZY to take pictures and post anything new to this site. I think my inaction has left an empty space in my creative consciousness – and I am left wanting to create. So fear not loyal LACS followers, the posts will continue and the pictures will continue to flood in.
We will start with this gorgeous 2019 Acura NSX that was spotted at the parking lot of the Malibu Wine Safari. Enjoy!
