I was in New York City for work last week and jogged from 35th Street to Central Park to get some exercise.
Across from my church on the border of St. Louis and Clayton, Missouri, is this house. The owner has vintage Jag and Bentley coupes, a trailer to race something, and of course a current model XJ long body. I peak at them each week in the summer to see what’s out on the driveway.
This barn find was in a barn with no roof and only three walls.
I spotted this M3 competition package off of Shenandoah Avenue in St. Louis City. What a great car.
Own the unicorn for a mere $129,990. (credit to Jake on the Oppo-Lock Facebook group for finding this gem).
Yesterday, I attended the fourth of July parade in the Shaw neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri. I managed to capture this shot of a 1946 Cadillac Series 62 convertible parked on majestic Flora Boulevard.
One of my favorite parts of a trip to Arizona is seeing classic cars with clean bodies everywhere. Increasingly, analog vehicles are becoming beautiful in the same way record players and old bicycles are. Even bland ones like a Renault sedan.
My 335i is in the shop replacing bad injectors, coils, and points, so Autohaus BMW in Maplewood, MO gave me this sweet whip for a loaner (love being in the CPO warranty). They let me loan a 2016 435ix with the M-Sport performance package in lovely Estoril blue.
I saw a 1956 Buick Special for sale in Birmingham, Alabama. Looks like it needs a bit of love, but it certainly deserves some.
I witnessed this black beauty last night in downtown San Diego. Why would someone ever do this you ask? Answer: “Sorry for partyin’!”
I did a double take today in a parking garage in downtown Saint Louis when I spotted this black Fisker Karma wearing a thick coat of dust.
I’m curious to know if any fellow Oppositelock folks are also home brewers? It’s a hobby I’ve been enjoying since 2009.
I still meander over to the New York Times automobile section out of habit, even though these days the content is drying up. So, my attention was picked by an article titled, "The Other Auto Show in Detroit", which featured a promising photograph of a classic Mustang that clearly needs only a little TLC. "Sweet," I…
Awhile back I sold my 2002 E46 BMW 325i. It was light blue with tan leather. It was a terrific car that was fun, fast, and reliable for many, many years. The only reason I let it go was that at 167,000 miles, I was worried it would become to expensive to maintain—even though the only costs it gave me were expensive…
Courtesy of Deadspin—wow. Just, wow.
So, I'm ready to replace my E46 325i sedan, which has been a fun, faithful car, but is approaching 170,000 miles. Its been nice to have both our vehicles paid off and to skip having a car payment, but its time for me to move toward an updated model. I have permission from my wife who told me the right new car is,…
(Full Disclosure: I'm a lawyer who mostly defends or takes depositions, so I travel every week. I'm also a gearhead, having owned an AMC Jeep Wagoneer, a Kawasaki Ninja 600R, a Triumph Speed Four, various pickups, and now an E46 BMW (but currently am shopping for an E90 335i M-Sport). THUS, Volkswagen wanted me to…
I always notice the cars in my St. Louis neighborhood while walking my dog (someone has a DINAN Z3, for example).
