July 2019 Car Spotters!

Recommended Posts

We got a gray Palisade SE AWD and a (suggestive) green one, SE with FWD.  They have one of those fancy, supposedly intuitive pushbutton shifter quadrants.  Nope.

Took a scenic drive down through the national park to my favorite custard stand (been making this drive every day since June 28th, very relaxing).  Saw a variety of interesting oldies—a clean red 40 Plymouth 2dr, a clean cream and red ‘56 Chevy 2dr sedan, a dark blue ‘71 Chevelle 2dr, a primered 55 Ford 4dr sedan, and an orange ‘70 Cuda.

2 notes ~
• Was behind a new Escalade, as I got up to it I saw the 'Mary Kay' script… but before that I was admiring the color- not bright at all but very subtle, dusty pink/white. Cadillac should offer an expanded color palette that goes off the 'standards' of today- tinted whites, slightly tinged silvers, very dark metallic blue/brown/reds. They should still have plenty of appeal to those who tend to default to the defaults, but would certainly be unique / special.
• circa early '90s Chrysler New Yorker, super clean but hitching a ride on a flatbed. They were not bad looking for the period...

The transmission probably went. That was the weak link in those cars. The rest of the car was pretty solid.

It is not unusual for a dealership to have an auxiliary storage lot.

Around here, they've been putting them in the parking lots of the dying malls.

There is a closed former car dealer around here filled with overflow Rams.

At the rate they're selling, eclipsing the Chevrolet equivalent in the first half, I don't think they'll have too much trouble clearing them.

'68 GTO convertible, red, I'd say #3 condition, driven by a guy who could have bought it new.

Just saw a baby boomer couple driving the last year SS sedan. Very lovely, shame they stopped making such an awesome car.

Went out for taco Tuesday and custard...saw a variety of interesting cars---a very clean red C4 convertible, a sharp silver '67 Corvette coupe, a primered '63 Ford Galaxie boxtop w/ a healthy rumble, a bright yellow slammed '68-72 C10 longbed, an orange Hellcat Challenger, and a white wide body Hellcat Challenger..

Oddest sight was a black Audi Q7 sitting up on 4 jack stands in a driveway of a modest house...looked like the guy was doing a brake job.

Also saw a sharp red '59 Edsel convertible, rolling in traffic, top down. 

Saw a house with a pale yellow '65 Mustang coupe in the garage and a blue w/ white top Lincoln Mark III in the driveway being polished.

On a nearby street being resurfaced, saw a strange street sweeper truck..had a Frieghtliner cab with two steering wheels!   The driver was sitting on the passenger side.   I guess having dual drive setups makes sense so the driver can sit on the curbside to watch curbs when sweeping..

A bit o' googling turned up pics of one..wild.

Ya, incredible stuff...I've always liked ice cream, but never experienced frozen custard like this...delicious..they have a couple basic flavors (chocolate, vanilla) and a unique flavor of the day..every day.  It's about 10 miles from home, beautiful drive through winding, hilly roads of the national park to get there....gone almost daily the last 2 weeks...a summer guilty pleasure.

Saw a bright red '67 Grand Prix convertible yesterday, rolling top down...white interior.   Also saw a Saab 9-7X in clean condition, kind of a taupe color.  Haven't seen one in a couple of years.

Ah yes, the second-gen Corvair... absolutely love the design and think it is one of GM's best overall.  Certainly THE best looking small GM car design ever.  Early Vega is also a beauty, let down badly by half-baked engineering and rust protection.  They only have themselves to blame.

Love the roofline and proportions of the 2nd gen Corvair coupes.   

Saw a new 2020 Explorer on the road today, gray with a temporary plate.  Sharp, first I’ve seen on the road.   Also saw a gray w white stripes 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, also w a temporary plate.
