So I’m walking out of a local bank and I see a fire-engine-red Viper swing into the A&P lot across the street. I follow it…and it has a handicap sticker sitting in the windshield? If this guy is handicapped and driving a Viper GTS (which is a challenge even if you’re perfectly healthy), he deserves a medal. It was a little scratched up, so it certainly didn’t look like it sat in a garage constantly.
There was supposed to be a massive car show today at the Birchwood Manor in northern NJ today, but due to the threat of thunderstorms, the officials postponed it to next week. On my way back home, I spotted this slick lime-green 1934 Ford coupe (complete with some nice flame outlines) about to find out that the car show was cancelled.
Decided to take a quick walk after some gambling in Caesar’s at Atlantic City on Wednesday, and this bright yellow ponycar greets me with an eletrifying “hello.” It looks quite garish, especially with the yellow painted rims, but it sounded just as mean as it looked with that classic hood scoop, thanks to a custom exhaust.
Spotted this Nissan GT-R R35 in Newtown, Pa in the parking lot of “The Villages at Newtown”. Just outside of Oishi, to be specific. I am not a big fan of the car personally, but I respect what it does and its rarity.
Since I was at a race and expected to see some nice cars there, however there were a few that stood out to me. Instead of making them individual posts, I figured I would lump them into one post. The first car posted above is a Ferrari 308 Quattrovalvolve. I love the old 308s, there is just something elegant about them, but I can never put my finger on it. Next up we have a Mercedes Benz CLS 63AMG, just glorious by all accounts, 1969 Camaro and a BMW 1-Series M. Continue reading Spotted!! Cars from the Grand Am Race in NJ→
While washing my car at a local gas station yesterday, afternoon, a local showed up in this beauty. It’s one of only 15 ever made in 1933, and one of only two left remaining. The owner lives locally and is an influential developer in Randolph. He also owns a few other cars, includuding a late Fifties Corvette, a Camaro, and possibly others. More pictures after the jump.

I was leaving the American Le Mans Series race at Lime Rock, CT when I spotted this ultra-rare beauty!
In 1992, Panoz launched their Roadster, with a 5.0L V8 motor from Ford, this little roadster was meant to get up and go from day 1. The roadster had no top or cover, nor did it show a place to put one. It was only offered in a 5 speed manual transmission, and when it came to options and amenities, there were none. No radio, no a/c, no heater, and again, no place to put one. The only thing it had was a US DOT mandated heating core for a windshield defroster. Between the original Roadster (44) and the AIV (Aluminum Intensive Vehicle) Roadster (176), only 220 were produced.
Caught just by Central Park (by 7th Avenue), this tan Lincoln limousine looks very unique. Clearly (by the side graphics), it’s an advertisement for some venue with “Spooky Special Effects” located between 57th and 58th Streets, along 6th Avenue.
Major props to whoever was responsible for the appearance, it’s eye-catching and seriously cool.
