2015 GMC Canyon SLT crewcab longbed 4X4 at the local dealer, black on black.  $38k MSRP.  Jawdropper.  I cannot imagine how the Denali will be nicer!

'67 Chevy Chevelle 2-dr hardtop, med blue, restored, in driveway.

'65-esque Chevy II 2-dr sedan, grey primer, behind garage.

'60 Chevy (I think) partially covered, in a carport right near the folks. Red. Have to investigate further.

'58 Chevy Bel Air 2-dr hardtop, white over red, restored rolling thru some driving rain (& likely not having fun with vacuum wipers).

Pristine black S-10 SS, running down the road.  My first '15 Colorado sighting in the wild:  bright red Crew Cab LT longbed 4X4 with Luxury Package, chillin' in the grocery store parking lot.

BMW i3. What a funny looking thing, so disconnected with the bland, dated stuff BMW is known for.

 

'55 Bel Air 4-dr sedan, white over blue, solid, in garage with flat, customer's son's car (15 yrs old). Nice to see the 'utes' into cars older than their parents for a change.

 

'60 Chevy (I think) partially covered, in a carport right near the folks. Red. Have to investigate further.

It was a '62 Ford Galaxie convert, rough shape but restorable.

Saw a black Yukon GT 2dr today in solid shape...bad paint. Black s oxidation and roof was all surface rusted. Saw another 2dr Jimmy/Yukon in two tone blue and silver, missing trim. Unusual to see not one. But two full size 2dr suv s within a mile..

Interesting, I just saw the same thing but in fantastic shape.

And just saw this during a quick run for groceries.  I wasn't wearing my glasses and at first I thought it was a 2-door LeBaron K-Car until I realized they never actually built such a beast.

Looks like a Buick Electra.....there was a 2dr K car based LeBaron, by way....82-88. Dodge equivalent was the 400/600.

 

It an Electra Park Ave... which means it has to be an '87. It was the only year that had both composite head lamps and the 2 door. 

 

Yes, the earlier K-Car was available as a coupe... but I was thinking of this.

And there was never a 2-door model of that.  The 2-door Lebaron in these years was actually on Chrysler's J-Body and was much sleeker... as far as late 80s Chryslers go.

You said K car in the first post, so I thought you meant the '82-86ish one.   Chrysler overused the LeBaron name in the 80s, at least 5 distinct designs (incl. a RWD model in '80-81) used that name...

Circa '49 Dodge business coupe, super clean resto, grey on white whites, sucking groceries into it's 100 CF trunk at the super market, then chugging off.

Saw this Ram pickup with a Sterling grille. Sterling rebadged Ram HD & chassis cabs as a light duty offering about a decade ago; first time I've seen a Ram pickup with the Sterling grille swap. I like it!!
