Pontiac Catalina – 24th & Blaisdell: Minneapolis, MN

October 18th, 2012 by Emir

She’s a fixer upper opportunity for anyone with spare time on their hands. Think about it. If it looks like this cool in POS condition, imagine how good it can look restored.

Dodge B-Series “Job Rated” Truck – Westport, CT

October 4th, 2012 by Stu

I always seem to catch these lonely old work horses parked or abandoned alongside random rest stops just off the highway. This time around the subject was a Dodge B-Series [’48 – ’53] that appears to be a daily driver. One thing is for sure…it sports an amazing patina. Love the “Job Rated” plaque that adorns the grille and the curvaceous 1950s Dodge lettering that’s sprawled across the beat up old tailgate.

Way cool and way cheap. Here’s a nice one for $5,400

Studebaker Avanti – Los Angeles Museum of Art [LACMA], LA

September 13th, 2012 by Aaron

The curators at LACMA found this Avanti to be an appropriate piece of period correct eye candy to compliment their exhibit “California Design, 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way,” the first major study of modern California design. As reported on by our pal Phil Patton at the NY Times, “the curators included the car because it echoed a spirit in design and lifestyle also seen in the furniture, lighting, product and fashion items in the show”

We have spotted Avantis before but never one parked on shag carpet. Awesome!

Jaguar XK120 Roadster – Lee, Mass

August 30th, 2012 by Stu

I will always have a sweet spot for these voluptuous shag demons. XK120 is a member of that rare automotive species capable of conjuring up an emotional response the minute your eyes hit the sheet metal. It’s not a car…it’s an object of beauty. I guess that’s why Ralph Lauren chose to include one in his world class collection,

Thanks for the great snaps Jersey Jay!

Lincoln Continental Low Rider – East 63rd Street, NYC

August 8th, 2012 by Stu

Most people like getting their picture taken with the cars they love. The owner of this Lincoln, sporting one seriously pimped out Continental coupe, was an exception to the rule. He gave me serious evil eyes the moment I whipped out the camera. I quickly fired off a few rounds and holstered my sidearm. It was worth the brief discomfort I experienced as the light changed from yellow to green. This thing is so freekin cool…from the rich green paint to the unique chrome dish wheels and low rider stance.
