Seen on the Street…

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

SOTS Walkabout

O.K., I know all of you have been wondering (or maybe not) what is going on with this little blog. As some of you know I have a little side project going on that is taking every minute of my spare time, and also the work time that I was taking doing this little waste of time. Or maybe it’s just spring fever. Continue reading “SOTS Walkabout”


Going Racing

Well, not me.  Watching racing.  I was lucky enough to be given a pair of tickets to this weekend’s AMA Superbike race at Barber Motorsports Park.  I get Paddock access also, which should be cool.  I’m taking my son, he should enjoy it since he’s 13 and he’s started to get interested in cars and driving.  I’ll post a few more pictures next week. Continue reading “Going Racing”

“M-Team” Econoline


I guess I’ve got spring fever. Since I’ve been too lazy busy to write new stuff the past few days I thought this might be a good time to re-live the glory days of email S.O.T.S. before I started doing the blog. Back when my photography was even worse than it is now. Continue reading ““M-Team” Econoline”

Flashback Friday 15: 1988 Honda Civic DX

Yep, another Honda Civic. By this point I had a long commute (for Montgomery) and needed something more reliable, fun to drive, and more “stealth” than the Miata, which I still had and drove mostly on weekends. Continue reading “Flashback Friday 15: 1988 Honda Civic DX”

1997-2002 Plymouth Prowler

Plymouth Prowler11,702 of these retro cruisers were built.  I personally think they are cool as hell, but many people don’t.  The big problem is that it only came with a 214hp 3.5L V6 and an automatic transmission.  It’s the ultimate poser car. Continue reading “1997-2002 Plymouth Prowler”

1978 Dodge Aspen Wagon

1978 Dodge Aspen stationwagon

O.K., so I missed yesterday. I was spending way too much time fiddling with the website for my 20th high school reunion. But today I will make it up to you with this wonderful 1978 Dodge Aspen stationwagon. Don’t you feel better already?

Flashback Friday 14: Truckin’ Part 3

1972 Chevrolet C-10 Cheyenne

In Flashback Friday 7 you saw my first old Chevy pickup, now we have the second. I was having a big time with the new Miata, but they aren’t that great for hauling trash, or anything else.  I had also made some improvements to the Miata and had it like I wanted it.  But I had an itch to have another project, and I had some cash.  I wanted another truck, and I knew what I wanted. Continue reading “Flashback Friday 14: Truckin’ Part 3”

Back to the Future

De Lorean DMC-12

No need to tell the history of this car.  I shouldn’t even need to mention it’s name.  But then again, most people only know it as a “De Lorean” which is only the brand name, not the model.  It is actually a De Lorean DMC-12, but since this is the only model that De Lorean Motor Company built it is fine with me if you just call it a “De Lorean”. Continue reading “Back to the Future”

Gas Classic: 1984-94 Ford Tempo

Ford Tempo 1

I haven’t seen one of these in a while, and since I took these photos I have seen 3 more.  That always seems to happen when I find something for the site.   After becoming an expert on Ford Tempos (five minutes on the Internet) I am amazed at what a huge seller this thing was.  In it’s first year sales of the Tempo and it’s twin sister Mercury Topaz were 531,468.
