    This is a thread for the stuff we see while we are out and about...I jog in a town with many, many classic cars and I was clogging the "Jogging" thread full of my finds about town so Phil suggested a thread here biggrin

    Here are some of the cars I've run into recently:

    1956 Chevy Truck

    I think this is a 1966 or 67 Chevy Bel Air

    And a 1955 Bel Air

    This is a 1955 Buick Roadmaster that I ran across this week while jogging one the same street as the '65 Bel Air and the '65 Truck. I have seen it under a tarp at the end of this driveway for about 2 years and they pulled it out to sell it on Tuesday. WHat I thought was a '56 Chevy of some sort was actually a completely pristine 1955 Buick...I spoke to the owner and got the price and his info and promptly turned it over to my father in law (who, unlike me has the money to buy stuff like this when he sees it).

    Its been sitting for many years so it needs a little work but it is totally complete and original...a complete "barn find" and I would have bought it myself if I wasn't trying to buy a house at the moment frown0

    Thanks!

    Is one of the nice things about living here..there are tons of older cars if you are into that sort of thing.

    I'd love an old panel or suburban... smi

    I saw this little Ford Ranchero - mid 60's, I guess while I was out running today and thought it was kind of neat....there were some great 50's trucks but my stupid phone ran out of memory for pictures :mad:

    Some stuff I've seen lately

    I see lots of classic cars in and around orange, long beach, seal beach, and L.A.


    I have snapped few camera phone shots of some that caught my eye lately.

    Sweet! IS that a Pontiac in the top pic?

    When I was just out walking the dog right now I saw a mid 60's El Caminio and a 50's Ford F100 truck that I really dug...no pics, though...

    It's about a 68 GTO. And it's in the parking lot of some defunct manuf. place right off the 5.

    you know where that Corvette restorer place is on the East side of the 5, right around disney land drive ?

    Well, on the west side of the 5 right across from it, it's just been sitting there. I have been very tempted to get off, and try to meander my way back there to see if they wanna sell it.

    Even if it's got no title, it'd be a fun red-light runner.
