Seen on the Street…

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

Nissan Maxima

Back before the Maxima became a 4DSC, it was just another midsize Japanese car.  And almost every 80’s Japanese car was square.  For that matter, most of the American and European cars were quare also.  So what was my point again?  The best thing about the second generation 1985-1988 Maxima seen here was that you could also get a wagon!  Continue reading “Nissan Maxima”


Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

What more can I say about the beauties that I find at work.  You can count on $10 per hour second-shift employees to have interesting transportation.  I could almost do SOTS just from the parking lot.  Enjoy this mid-80’s donked Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser…  Continue reading “Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser”

WWHD: 2008 MINI Cooper S Convertible

Occasionally you probably wonder “What Would HotRod Drive” if I were allowed, and could afford, to actually purchase a car or two for my own use.  Well of course the first choice would have to be this one, but since that is a one of a kind masterpiece that the creator will not part with, what else would I possibly choose?  A new Cooper S Convertible just like this one is on my short list.

Gas Classic: 1978-79 Honda Civic

The Gas Classic this week is near and dear to my heart.  How about this nice, clean first generation Honda Civic hatchback?  It is rare to see second generation Civics any more.  As you know, I’m a big fan of the second generation wagons, third generation hatchbacks, and fourth generation LX and DX sedans. Continue reading “Gas Classic: 1978-79 Honda Civic”

Austin-Healey 3000

When it comes to British classics, I think the Jaguar XK-E is the most beautiful ever.  Second on my list is the Austin-Healey 3000.  I saw this very nice early 60’s 3000 at the Krispy Kreme cruise in.  They made these as both a two-seater and a four-seater.   This one is a four-seater, although you probably don’t want to sit back there unless you are younger than 4 years old or you have no legs. Continue reading “Austin-Healey 3000”

1968 MGB GT

So what are the odds of finding two MGB GTs within a week?  Apparently they are pretty good!  This red GT is actually for sale also, and might actually run, but I’m a little skeptical since the tag is from 1988.  It seems to have been garaged most of it’s life, so if it can be made to run it is probably worth the $4,500 asking price. Continue reading “1968 MGB GT”

1970 MGB GT

Another uncommon one from the Krispy Kreme cruise in.  I’m a little partial to this since I had a MGB convertible almost exactly like this one.  It’s a nice driver that appears to be well maintained and regularly, if not daily, driven. Continue reading “1970 MGB GT”

Gas Classic: Plymouth Duster Turbo

I’m going to try to do at least one Gas Classic every week.  I found this Duster a couple of months ago but didn’t have a chance to post it.  This body style Plymouth Sundance/Dodge Shadow was built from 1987-1994.  This appears to be a 90’s Duster, which was a trim level on the Sundance.  This one has the turbo 2.2 liter 4 cylinder engine with the five speed manual transmission. Continue reading “Gas Classic: Plymouth Duster Turbo”

Jensen Interceptor

One of the fun things about doing this little blog is that it gives me an excuse to do some research since I really don’t always know everything about all cars. When I saw this one I knew instantly that it was a Jensen Interceptor. I guess I have seen a few in magazines over the years, and it is odd enough that I remembered it’s shape immediately.  Continue reading “Jensen Interceptor”
