1963 Buick Skylark







It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a Skylark.

The Love Bug



Like so many great movies of the past, the Herbie catalog has been tainted by the recent addition starring coke-fueled Lindsay Lohan.  I grew up watching Herbie movies over & over... My favorite is Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo.  Not only did Herbie wear wide steelies and Goodyear Radials, but there were some great cameos by other classic cars.

It's the Moon Buggy



Don't you wanna know what's inside the Brown Rainbow?  More bicycles, you creeps.  The Moon Buggy is equally at home hustling bikes around Brooklyn as it is making trips to Uranus.

Colt Vista



Dodge Colt Vista.... Eagle Summit Vista.... Mitsubishi Chariot... whatever you want to call it, she's a beaut.  I have a soft spot for the 1980's wagovan/wagonback/shuttle/tall wagon's... especially anything AWD.  These guys look a little more minivan than wagon though.

1965 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport









Nice bumpers and tasteful red steelies behind the stock caps.  It's nice to see an original Impala without Cragars or hydraulics.  Black plates too.

I saw a huge Wiener tonight.




















I apologize for the crappy nighttime iphone photos, but it's not everyday you see a Wienermobile... even if there are 7.

Fiat 500L


Bad lighting + Fiat 500 = 17 horsepower. A cute girl in the background too!

BMW L6





The "L" stands for LUXURY kids.  Luxury E24's were only available from '87-'89.  This particular one is adorned with some 2 piece mesh numbers.

1967 Ford Fairlane 500 Convertible (Extra Large)







I've never seen the top up on this rig.  Leaves it down night and day.  Good thing it doesn't rain here.

This surfer mobile appeared in Mopar Row recently. A nice addition to a growing street collection.
