Lotus Europa – Ohio Street: St. Paul, MN

Lotus Europa - Ohio Street: St. Paul, MN

Kubrick’s choice for Alex in Clockwork Orange was a Lotus Europa. Can you blame him? ” Europa was was after all a bit of an automotive oddball with its racy meets hatchback-esq silhouette. And while Europa never quite matched the popularity levels of its older brother Elan, man was it cool. Here we are now, some 40 + years later and one almost forgets how beautiful these cars are. Those 1960s curves, light body, minimalist chassis, low roof-line, even lower driving position. Lotus Europa was  never one of the most beautiful cars but it was certainly one of the more striking. The owner of this early 1970s example said that they are making a comeback among collectors, which is great news for car guys like us who enjoy spotting them.

Translucent ’65 Chevy Impala SS – Park City, Utah

September 10th, 2013 by Stu

Translucent '65 Chevy Impala - Park City, Utah

These hyper color, almost translucent paint jobs were  popular in the early 2000s on Mustang Cobras and other forms of American muscle. ChromaFlair, as its  known, contains unique, multi-layer flakes that give paints, coatings, plastics, textiles and packaging the ability to change color when viewed from different angles. Each flake, created using thin-film alluminum, exhibits a wide range of hues depending on the angle at which it is viewed and the angle of incidence of light – a dramatic color shift that is even achievable in low-light environments. Pretty snazzy huh? Despite being a bit loud, and dated at this point, the paint kinda works on this ’65 Impala SS. Park City pedestrians had their collective heads on a swivel catching stares at this ultra-clean example spotted on Main Street. If the owner enjoys being seen then consider the mission accomplished.

Buick Wildcat – Broadway @ 74th Street, NYC

Buick Wildcat - Broadway @ 74th Street, NYC

The design isn’t exactly a cherished shape in GM’s styling history but man, what a name. And truth be told, this Wildcat doesn’t look half bad from the quarter panel forward. The grille detail is handsome and the slats on the quarter panel are bad ass. Things kind of fall apart from there.

Toyota Land Cruiser 40-Series Soft top – Main Street: Park City, Utah

Toyota Land Cruiser 20-Series Soft top - Main Street: Park City, Utah

The Land Cruiser, in it’s earliest form, represented unadulterated utility wrapped in a simple, reconfigurable body. Hard top, soft top, pick-up, and station wagon were among the many configurations available at the time of purchase. This ultra-clean, cherry red FJ40 [40-Series] was spotted with it’s top off on Main Street in downtown Park City. It’s a shame Toyota doesn’t make simple, open-top off-roaders like this anymore. The Wrangler could stand for some real competition.
