Weekend car spotting


That is a great daily driver! Looks like he keeps it pretty clean too.


An Austin-Healey 100/6

Not ideal storage but at least it is on concrete


Nice Healey! Here’s a couple this week including a nicely resto-modded Bronco and a forlorn early Z.


I wonder why that color is so popular on resto modded 4x4’s…


It’s been a couple of weeks so I thought I would add a little cheer to the doldrums of winter.
First up is an early 80’s W123 Mercedes 240D with a lovely 70’s-80’s brown exterior.

And a nice little resto-modded Datsun 510. This one had a crunched left rear fender, but the guy had a new fender stashed in the front passenger seat, obviously getting ready to do some body work.


I saw these two Sunday morning. The Mini Cooper is RHD and it might be an import from Japan. It has round side marker lights, which look different from most that appear online. Below is a Jaguar XJ6 Series III Vanden Plas with unusual alloys.


Italian cars today with nice looking (except for the terrible wheels) Fiat 2000 Spider. Also, an Alfa Romeo 147 GTA, which is down from British Columbia for work at the local Alfa shop. The car is smaller than it looks.


Just found these from a couple years ago during a trip to Boston. A small club near our hotel downtown…All very young drivers. Cars appeared, sadly, not well maintained and contained all the stuff you’d associate with a teenage driver…empty soda bottles, fast food wrappers and other trash.

The phaeton is apparently on the far right in this photograph https://goo.gl/images/iV89sa which is from the opening of the Golden Gate bridge.


Saw a variety of cars this morning around town.
1959 Chevrolet Parklane
Nissan Skyline GT-R R32
Saab 96 V4


Some of the pickups around town. Still working. Studebaker 2R, Ford F350, Chevrolet 3100, IHC R120


Man, that Ford in nice. I’m heading to your part of the country next time I need a project car!


Yeah - let me know when you’re next in town. There is a nice S2 Corvair coupe down the street from the International too. It is parked in a driveway though.


I’ll take you up on that next time I’m in the area!


Saw a couple of examples from Volkswagen Group’s performance car portfolio on Friday; a Lamborghini Aventador and an Audi RS3. If the RS3 is a 2017, that purportedly makes it one of 33. The white Lamborghini was in a partially sun-lit garage, so I made it black and white.


Lancia Delta Integrale Evo, Dodge Challenger Hellcat wide body, Aston Martin DB AR1 Zagato, Nissan Skyline GT-R R34, BMW M2, Porsche 991 GTS, Cadillac CTS-V sedan and wagon, BMW 850i CSi look


Summer has been busy but there are still some interesting cars around town
MG Midget, Ford Bronco, Jaguar XK8, BMW 2002, 1960 Plymouth Savoy, and an Austin-Healey Sprite.


Different takes on weekend haulers.

Datsun (and a Mercedes-Benz R107 SL hiding behind it).
Chevrolet Corvette C7 Aerowagen by Callaway


That Corvette Aerowagon is going to be a NO from me.


It is different though.
Here are some cars from car shows on Sunday. Despite all three being red, and with four-cylinders and four seats, they’re all pretty different takes on the automobile. Top to bottom a Lancia Delta Integrale Evo, BMW M3 (E30), and Citroen DS convertible
