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.

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.

The Cars of "Chuck"

Httpwww.imfdb.org 450px-ChuckS4_96Chuck is a North-American TV show about Chuck Bartowski, a young man whose mediocre life changed when he opened an e-mail containing encrypted content composed of a huge number of highly classified information called the Intersect. Once read and in the subconscious of brain, the person with this information becomes a supercomputer of sorts, able to do things like ID an international criminal, or identify a weapon or document of upmost importance, though involuntarily. And that’s just the first season! Due to his skills behind a computer and overall unorthodox ways in handling situations in relation to governmental bureaus, Chuck reluctantly becomes part of a secret anti-terrorist team effort until a way is found to remove the Intersect from his head. His cover? His mundane life. In the meantime, serious questions appear: What makes a spy: the equipment or the individual? Can one be a spy and have a normal, happy life? Can one be a spy without sacrificing one’s values and integrity?

Carspotters’ Challenge #168: Rising Sun, Lowered Ride Height

It's always a treat to see the best of other countries' car culture. Regardless of how well-documented they seem to be, Japan never ceases to bore me with theirs.

Carspotters’ Challenge #159: Meanwhile, In Dubai…

Here’s a short Carspotters’ Video Challenge for ya. Haven’t done one in a while.

This is an easy one, because the guy recording this is giving away some of the answers, but not all of them. If you think that what you see at the beginning is interesting, just wait until you reach the end.

How many can you get in a row before needing to re-watch?
