Chevy Styleline Deluxe Sport Coupe – Forest Grove, Oregon

July 27th, 2010 by Emir

I spotted this great looking 51 Chevy parked outside the Forest Grove Concour d’Elegeance last weekend. Its brilliant blue paint, elegant use of chrome, and smooth curves had me stopped like a dear caught in the headlights. And what an interior. I hope to look this sporty when I’m 60 years old. In case any of my rant now has you lusting for one of these, this baby happens to be for sale and can be in your driveway for the low low price of $15K. Any interested parties can email haywood53@gmail.com.

*note: price does not include Man on the Move broker fee of 6%

Buick Skylark Custom – SE 49th and SE Division, Portland, OR

June 21st, 2010 by Emir

This classic Buick Skylark Custom was so insanely perfect in every way that I was almost afraid to breathe when stepping up to snap a few photos on this dreary Portland afternoon. The chrome, trim pieces and killer mag wheels all looked better than new. And while I’m usually a violent opponent of vinyl roofs, this one looks pretty damn good transposed against the Bahama Blue paint’s subtle sheen.

Chevrolet Apache 10 Stepside – Elizabeth Street, NYC

November 5th, 2009 by Ian

Apache 2

Yesterday Nick brought you a classic Chevy pickup with West Coast flavor. I respond today with this old workhorse keeping it real on Elizabeth Street in the Lower East Side. She ain’t as pretty as Bill Sack’s denim ’57 3100, but thanks in part to the charmingly crude respray – powder blue with white accents throughout – this baby has certainly aged better than the last Apache we spotted. And we dig the spare integrated into the stepside bed. Viva la vintage truck!

'57 Chevy – Cadman Plaza, Brooklyn

Pop your head into one of those cramped little stores on Canal Street and you will find ‘57 Chevy toys sitting alongside a mini Statue of Liberty, a 30 rock snow globe, the I Love NY T-shirts and a poster of Marilyn Monroe’s skirt blowing up. The iconic automotive shape goes together with American culture like peas and carrots.

Mercury Cougar – Columbia Heights, Brooklyn

August 25th, 2009 by Austin

Mercury Cougar

More refined and upscale than its Dearborn platform-mate, these ‘67-’68 gen 1 Cougars were positioned as Mustangs that had gone off to European finishing school. Aside from the fact that the two cars shared no exterior body panels, Cougar customers also got more luxurious appointments and standard V8 power. We were stopped dead in our tracks by the gaping full-width grille that is often likened to that of an electric shaver.

Cadillac CTS – Lexington Ave, NYC

May 26th, 2009 by Stu

 

cadillac-cts-grand-central-stationThe CTS looks right at home parked alongside slab-sided Lexington Avenue office buildings. This “Crystal Red”, second generation example absolutely reeks of urban sophistication and represents version 2.0 for Cadillac’s edgy Art & Science design language. We waited around for Kate Walsh but she never showed.

1961 Lincoln Continental Convertible – West 22nd Street, NYC

May 22nd, 2009 by Ian

lincoln-continental

The Lincoln used in the opening credits of Entourage is cooler than Vinnie, Eric, Turtle and Drama combined. We’re talking about the iconic 4 door convertible that originated suicide doors here folks. Short of loading a prefabricated home onto the back of a tractor trailer, driving one of these Continentals is the closest a person will ever come to taking the living room for a ride .
