Carspotters' Challenge #178: Just Desserts

While making my General Lee post, I went through a number of clips. I wish I could share them all, but this one from 'The Great Santa Claus Chase' episode has some choice metal for sale in the background:

 

Which one of these beauties would you hazard a trip down to Hazzard for a test drive? Might wanna have 'em checked out by a reputable mechanic. I know one that might be crazy but he ain't dumb...

Carspotters' Challenge #176: CarLust 1980s Starter Pack

We've been revisiting some 80s gems here at CarLust these last couple of weeks, and before we head into the '90s, it feels right to share this period artwork that I've had stashed in my hard drive for some time now.

Yes, they're neither that many nor that hard to figure out for our seasoned veterans, but for the novice CarLust carspotter, it couldn't be a more perfect exercise.

Car Spotters' Challenge #175: Got No Job, We Don't Care. Got No Money, We Don't Care. Don't Plan To Pay Us? THAT'S When We Care!

Thank you Art Fern, aka Johnny Carson, for those hilarious words (More or less). Your Tea Time Movies skits with the great Carol Wayne are both fondly remembered and sadly missed.

I think that skit was focusing on a used car dealer. And as you know, many used car dealers "Tote The Note" so you can buy there and pay there. Auto financing convenience at its best. Just don't miss a payment.

Totally unrelated, this fine auto sales establishment has many classic cars to pick from. Let's name some and take them home:

Used cars

I want that one!

Friday the 13th Carspotters' Challenge, #174

It's that dreaded day that comes around every few months. Triscaidekaphobia at its worst, the day you take extra time to not step on sidewalk cracks, walk under ladders, and keep that rabbit's foot ever so handy.

Of course we're talking Friday the 13th.

These folks had a bad day, but luckily everybody lived to tell. Their luck could have been much worse.

Car pile up

See anything there still somewhat recognizable?

Great Cars of Toronto

A business trip took me to Toronto last week,...

...giving me an opportunity to sample the automotive world on the other side of the world's longest international border.

Carspotters Challenge #172: Mustang in Traffic

Continuing our Mustang theme from earlier in the week, from the ever-interesting Vintage Everyday comes this week's photograph:

Mustang in Traffic Omaha 1973

Titled "Mustang in traffic, Omaha, 1973".

I for one really liked the design of the turning 2nd Gen Monte Carlo. Totally one of my Ultimate Garage cars.

Great Commercials - Sácame a Pasear (Take Me Out For A Spin)

It doesn’t matter how you view Toyota cars –or cars in general- whether they’re appliances or machines that never go out of style; if you use ‘em and don’t maintain ‘em, they’ll be scrap sooner than later, regardless of all their praise, earned or otherwise. While this commercial recommends that you take your car to a certified Toyota Service Center, I want to personally include reputable independent shops as well, provided that you don’t know what you’re doing or don't have the tools for the job when it comes to maintenance (there’s no shame in asking for help or letting the professionals do it).

Carspotters' Challenge #170: Ashland, Wisconsin - July, 1973

Ashland, Wisconsin - July 1973 tumblr_m0yv6zZ4cK1qiwn71o1_1280

Has The Poseidon Adventure been in theaters since its release date of December 1972? Well, it was really successful...

Anyways, no wonder there isn't that many cars parked around, everyone must've seen it already.
