Spotted today in Beverly Hills, CA. Immaculate car, for real. Just a tick under 50,000 miles. It had an mph speedo, and was LHD.

It really was in amazing shape.

Another weekend, another junkyard trip, another gem found:

May I present to you the car of the three strikes rule. First it was a Police Car (Hard Life), then a Taxi (Just kill me now life), then life as a Donk (oh I give up)...

Image

Yep Gull-wings
Image

It's not a Caprice it's CAPRICE KING
Image


Image

Evidence of a past life as a cab...

Spray-Dyed interior. It's actually not a bad job.
Image

One of the gull-wings had a loose weld on it.
Image

Even the trunk was upholstered.
Image

Spacers to "lift" the car. Rear
Image

Front
Image

Most of the car had a nice layer of Bondo on it. Some places it was 1/4" thick.
Image

Yep even the visors were upholstered.

Lotus Exige, same paint scheme as this one, but not a race car:

I thought I'd make pretty good time following it (on the highway), but nobody got out of it's way either.

Convertable as a sign of spring, along the the robins?

No pics, but today I saw a Buick LeSabre with a license plate that said "REPENT".

That was kind of strange.

This 550SL is my favorite, with the euro style headlights it looks great.

Not sure you can resize pictures, i just resize mine before uploading.

Saw a brown 240Z on my way to work, and a bright red convertible -56 Cadillac convertible on my way home. No camera so no pictures...

I didn't entirely realize the VW GTD was confirmed for North American sales, but tonight I saw a Sprinter bearing a permit from the city for "Untitled Filming (Volkswagen GTD). Didn't manage to see the car itself, but I sort of want to stalk the driver now.

Saw a 1968 Chevy Sportsman 108 that looked like it had been recently pulled out of a field in Colorado and fitted with shiny rims, in the local Price Chopper parking lot:

Had a massively cracked windshield, so I'm rather surprised it has an inspection sticker and plates.
