Saw this beaut in midtown today. Recognized it for what it was and immediately went on Singer’s website to try to find out more. I can’t find one with this exact spec on their site, or anywhere online. It’s got Montana plates, but it looks like Singer’s only made one car for Montana and it’s blue... would someone be…
I've been busy with school and stuff but I've missed you guys at oppo. Now that I'm on break, here's a dump of all the cool stuff I've seen since October.
Was back in NYC for the long weekend and spotted this '65 De Ville. At least I think it's a De Ville, since as far as I can tell this model was identical to the Eldorado of that year except for that little chrome line down the side.
So I've actually seen a 25th Anniversary 'vette before, but in a different two-tone paint job. This was still a surprise, though.
It was the summer of 2007. Michael Bay's Transformers had just been released and I was 11. I had never been much of a car guy in the past, but the second I saw the Pontiac Solstice in that dumb explosion-fest, everything changed.
I've only seen these in the wild maybe twice before in NYC, but out here I never expected to see one.
Spotted this lot and couldn't get a better picture :(
It's been a little while, but Carspotting in Ithaca hasn't gotten old!
Spotted this just off campus! Never seen one before, coupe or 'vert. Never thought I'd see one in Ithaca, land of the subaru...
Saw some pretty cool faculty cars today, a super clean NA Miata and a Golf R32.
And, whoa, I'm still taking it all in. Most interesting car I've seen so far: a bright orange Challenger R/T, probably belonging to a professor or a grad student. Will check out the lots over the course of this week and post anything particularly cool.
But I've definitely never seen a 'H3T'. Was this a factory model? Are they rare? [EDIT: They are. They only made about 2700, it looks like.]
This is like the GSXR of 3-wheelers. Apparently they're wildly unsafe, though. I'll take a Morgan 3-wheeler over this any day.
Midnight blue 12C spider.....
Sorry for the potato pic. A friend spotted this late '30s or '40s murdered out something or other. Any ideas?
Spotted this on 67th st in Manhattan.
Today I’m going to talk about the oxymoronic existence of four-door coupes. Or ‘Gran Coupes.’ Or ‘Executive Über Coupes’ as I’m sure the psycho engineers at Quattro GMBH say (I really hope they say this). In as few words as possible (only kidding, this one should run long), I’m going to try to narrow down the origin…
Took me a while to realize that the body-color front bumper meant it was a '73, not some '71 or 2 Mach 1 mockup. These are way bigger than they have any right to be, but looked surprisingly modern.
Found this while going through old pics from a couple years ago. It was being towed on a carrier and this was unfortunately the best pic I got. Pretty distinctive, but I have no idea what it is? Looks like some kind of early '60s plymouth, though. Could be a custom.
Let me preface this by saying that I am by no means a fan of Veyrons.
