Car Spotting

Recommended Posts

I saw a very clean early '80s Coupe de Ville in traffic today..kind of a gray blue, with no vinyl top. Had base full wheelcovers..around an '80 or '81 I think.

That sounds cool, moltie. I've always liked bare roofs better. They're certainly longer lasting, and they don't hold moisture, which causes rust.

We just got a yellow Cobalt SS/SC. Yeah yeah, I know... but this one has the Performance Package (limited slip diff and cool Recaro seats). So... all evening I daydreamed about one for myself, equipped like this: Laser Blue/all black interior... with Performance Package as the only option, and a wing-ectomy (I searched the net for a nice, flush-fitting spoiler like I saw last summer on another SS/SC).

Revenge of the 70s and 80s shoeboxes yesterday:

1978 Pontiac LeMans

1980 Chevy Malibu coupe with bright yellow paint

1982 Ford LTD

1983 Chevy Caprice Classic

Plus:

Big 'ol 1967 Buick LeSabre that looked like something out of a post-apocolyptic urban assault movie...rust had touched every inch of sheet metal and it was rolling on some big beefy tires with no wheel covers

Sightings last week in New York:

Maserati Quattroporte

A decent showing of Ferraris

Bently Continental GT

Thousands of black Town Cars

1961 Lincoln Continental convertible in great shape

Aston Martin DB9

Quite a decent showing of new Fords; Five Hundreds, Milans, Montegos, and Freestyles were around more than I expected

Decent showing of G6s

Cadillac DTS

1955 Chevy Bel-Air

1967 Dodge Dart

Little MG roadster car

I was pleasantly surprised by a Caliber R/T I saw today, in orange, so I went to the dealership. The salesguy said they have had 2 so far, and they went out as soon as they hit the lot. I picked up a brochure and he took my email address for when they get more in. I am anxious to see SRT-4 pricing.

I feel that Dodge has come up with another winner here, when it is judged against its competition... Matrix, Vibe, 3 hatch, PT Cruiser and HHR.

A very beautiful 1958 Bonneville convertible much like this one:

...but a convertible.

Also, a mid-80s Mazda 626 coupe? They made those? Here?

Last night I had a fellow 2004 GTO owner pull up behind me, except his was red. I'm guessing that's one of the few times I'll have another 2004-2006 GTO right behind me, at least around here and not at some GTO meet.

2006 black GTO still in the wrapping. Fresh off the truck at the local Pontiac/Buick/GMC dealership. 6 speed and suhweet!

White Caliber SXT in the Target (say it like the French) parking lot. Chunky, tough little bomb.

Yesterday was my first time in a car since January. I saw my first Solstice and GTI, along with several Phaetons and a Lucerne.

Good God, I saw a lot of Explorers today (new and old). About 15 give or take. Seven of them were new ones and four of those were seen within a thirty second span. Freaky. :blink:

Two other sightings; both pretty rare vehicles:

-Land Rover Defender

-Maserati Coupe (that thing has a sexy exhaust note :thumbsup: )

I spotted a lifted, bright green Gallardo a couple days ago taking a trip to my cousin's house up north. :blink:
