Puce?



Spotted this while sitting in terrible traffic this morning. To top off what you can see, there was an older guy driving it with a scraggly, grey, boss-looking beard and a trucker hat. I honestly can't think of any ways to achieve a higher level of bad ass.

I think it's officially called "Techno Pink" but it makes the car look like one of those freaky hairless cats.

Olive drab Fiat X1/9 at the hardware store parking lot today.

Also, last weekend I spotted this Ford panel van at little festival at Jack London Square:

Apologies for the night time cellphone shot.

Finally, I mentioned on the main blog today that I spotted a Rally Fighter on Boylston in Boston, MA last time I was back there:

Recently someone said that if someone had a picture of a clean, rust-free GMT400 they would eat their hat.

Alright so it does have many, uh, period appropriate accessories which don't really enhance the look, but I can't spot any rust! Time for ze consumption of hats!

I found a very clean 1968 Eldorado street parked. These are cool cars with the FWD UPP drivetrain that always makes me think of the UM-50 from Stripes. Bill Mitchell would be pissed, Bill Murray would not.

ok that boat/wagon combo is about the most badass thing I've seen... and to see a street parked rally fighter is insane.

I normally don't get into the whole super car scene but was passed by a 458 italia today which I have to say looks incredible from behind. Also saw a pretty sweet f355 spyder driving the expressway in the pre-dawn hours.

Look again, that's a camino with a bed cover and really meaty rear tires. And that boat, it looks like it started as a pretty awesome fishing boat and then became a really awesome fishing boat.

Here's a 1941 Chevrolet Special Deluxe coupe in great condition. This thing is Harley Earl-rific. I've heard of these things referred to as "business coupes", why?

First Model S I've seen on the road. It is interesting how little presence it really has. I parked 2 spots behind it, and barely noticed it. It has a clean look though, and I still like it.

missed so many good pics lately, I was quite happy to snap this after many tries of getting up next to the car.
