Chevy Deluxe Sedan - 26th and R Street, Lincoln, Nebraska

Talk about nostalgia. These pics could easily have been Norman Rockwell paintings in another life. It’s almost as if this finely aged Chevy sedan was posing for us, being the only car parked on this picturesque Nebraska block.

Car spotting at its best.

Porsche 928 – 25th St & Stevens Ave S, Minneapolis

Porsche 928 - 25th St & Stevens Ave S, Minneapolis

Porsche executives, weary of Nader’s Corvair-crushing Unsafe at Any Speed, were skittish on the rear-engine, sometimes hard-to-handle 911 by the late 1960s. They were looking for something fresh to lure in luxury buyers. Enter 928, which represented the german marque’s first foray into luxury 2+2 GT cars and was originally intended to replace, yes I said replace, the iconic 911. We all know that the beloved 911 didn’t go anywhere, but it’s hard to argue against the coupe’s precocious styling. 928 also represented one of the few front engine cars Porsche ever built (6 in total) and featured innovation galore: water-cooled big block V8, movable steering column, 50:50 weight distribution and Weissach rear axle. Sales were no where near company expectations unfortunately, but the svelte 928 managed to grab top honors in 1978 in the European Car of the Year competition. Love that rump!

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.

Fiat Bertone X1/9: SE Belmont & 13th – Portland, OR

Fiat Bertone X1/9: SE Belmont & 13th - Portland, OR

This is not our first dance with the X1/9. Fiat relinquished control of these mid engine sports cars in 1982 after they deciding to exit the US market – all manufacturing duties subsequently shifted to design house Bertone from that point forward. They even hired Malcolm Bricklin, the Yugo man himself, to distribute theX1/9 in America. However dated it may look now, the X1/9 is handsome in a Pontiac Fiero meets Porsche 914 sort of way.

You’ve got to love the badge designating a 5-Speed slush box. Manuals are so hard to find in Italian sports cars these days…it’s kind of like a badge of honor.
