Seen on the Street…

Bad cars, bad photography, bad commentary. We've got it all!

93 Miata at the DIY Yard – July 1, 2018

1993 Mazda MX-5 Miata with rare set of SE BBS 14″ wheels. The wheels are dirty with a little curb rash, but otherwise look good and have the center caps. I pray that someone gets these and puts them to use, or at least makes some money on ebay.


Junkyard Trip – April 14, 2018

Some interesting stuff in the yard today…


2006 Chevrolet Impala SS


This guy works at a Subway shop on Saturdays, and races NASCAR on Sundays. Either that or he really loves Toyo Tires and Bully Dog. Continue reading “2006 Chevrolet Impala SS”

Cool 1960 VW Bus


I actually took these photos almost a year ago while working nights at an auto parts store. A customer arrived in this ultra-cool old VW bus.

Burned 2005 Dodge Magnum

You don’t see these everyday. At least where I live. I saw something sitting far off a side street in an undeveloped industrial area two days in a row. I had a little free time at lunch that day so I went to investigate.

I posted photos of the UltraVan on Thursday night. Friday morning I received an email from Owen (who commented on the post) that he thought this UltraVan was possibly chassis number 538. That would mean that this UltraVan is a 1970 model, one of the last few UltraVans built, and is not fitted with the Corvair drivetrain but with a Corvette suspension, transaxle, and a 307 cubic inch Chevy V8! That is very interesting to a car nut like myself, but that is only the beginning of the story.

When I stopped to photograph the 66 Corvair I spotted this odd looking RV. The large emblems proclaim it to be an UltraVan, which of course I had never heard of. After a few seconds on Google it was clear that this was a far more interesting find than the fairly easy to locate Corvair.

1966 Chevrolet Corvair

I stumbled upon this lonely 1966 Chevrolet Corvair today in a vacant lot behind a fast food restaurant. The lot is being used by a car dealer for storage, and this one looks like it came from auction recently.
