A SWARM OF JUNE BUGS (and Crickets, and Spyders, et al)

Recommended Posts

Post 'em if you got 'em! It's June already, so the cool cars are coming out of their cocoons and swarming the roads. Grab your net, don your safari hat and bring us back some tasty specimens!

I took some pics of a new Regal, but they didn't turn out well. It looked to be out on a test drive. I had no idea they were for sale already.

Though I really found this on the last day of May (Monday), I finally checked out what was "parked" in the back of a local glass shop... saw a '52 Chevy sedan, a '67 Camaro, several other '80s cars and buried in a large brush was a 1954 GMC 150 pickup truck (too far gone for restoration). I've driven by this place many times over the last 6 years but never checked out their back lot. I was pleasantly surprised to see the GMC back there ('54 being my favorite year of the Advanced Design era trucks). I have a picture I'll post when I download my digital camera soon.

Plenty of Opel Astras, lately. Nice looking 5-door, but I'm dying to see how the 3-door turns in final production trim!

^ good, sparsely-trafficked, curvy roads out there the draw ??

There's a dealer about 30 minutes from me, so I see these all the time.

'67 Eldorado, a nice (for yellow) buttery yellow, exc shape, parked

'64-65 El Camino, white w/ Cragars, exc shape, parked.

'03 Quadrasteer Silverado with some 7+ year fading & discoloration, out shopping this week.

I saw a Lotus Elise drive past my house the other day. I thought it was rather odd for one of those to be out here.

Very odd around there...very...

Balthazar:

Any photos of the '67 Eldorado...? <3

As far as the Lotus dealer that's down

the street from you I stopped by there

the day after I visited you on my

roadtrip back in 2005. I must admit I

have a soft spot for Lotus.

Since I've been absent from C&G for most of 2009

into the spring of 2010, I'll post some of my

favorites from this past year:

Silver Mini Cooper, done up like a base model '95 Cavalier. It had a satin black roof, mirrors, and bumpers.

Last gen Lexus IS Sportback...rare bird, but cool bird, little RWD hatch wonder.

'06 Denali pickup on the used lot, with a flat tire.

"Delmarva Pro Sport" edition '10 Sierra(s). The local GMC commercials have been advertising this package at all the dealers, but I never saw until today the badges actually say "Delmarva..." on them. Okay then.

Regarding the Delmarva Pro Sport package: seems like a lot of money for a little bit of extra content.

Yeah...I never understood it in the first place. The local GMC marketing commercial "chrome...lots of chrome...at your local Delmarva GMC dealers" play again & again. Finally seeing it, eh, fine if you wanted all those accessory chunks anyway and don't mind Delmarva plastered on it.

For $2049, you get a chrome grille, tow hooks, doorhandles, side steps, and exhaust tip. You also get mudflaps and bedrail caps. Whoopty-do.

The worse part is in the commercials they show a black Sierra with GM accessory chrome 20/22" wheels and make it legitimately sound like that's part of the deal, or at least used to. Another dealer has one as such and made their own commercial showing it, but again, the accessory wheels are yet another couple grand on top...stupid.

Thanks Camino.

Here's a few more, some are from a few years

back but I'm pretty sure none of these have

ever been posted on C&G. I'm also posting 3

more photos of that GORGEOUS, very original

1933 Chevrolet, I love this Pre-War classic like

a fat kid love cake.
