Near as I can tell there is nothing about this Corvette that indicates it can’t be from 1953, the first year that the Corvette was produced.  I see this car every single morning on my way into work, and today I happened to be early enough to stop and snap a couple of pictures.

It’s been quite a Chevy day, hasn’t it? 

Could those be the original tags from when this car was first purchased?  957 A seems pretty unlikely to me, but then again I know nothing of how license plate numbers are assigned, past or present tense.

Lots of carbon fiber, lots of extra vents, lots of M pride.  Normally I’m not a fan of overdoing it, but this I like.

Taken on 2/11/2012.  Too… big… to… fit… in… frame…

I learned today that fans of the Buick Roadmaster have a penchant for calling it the Roadmonster.  Fitting, I think.

Taken on 2/8/2012.  This, boys and girls, is apparently a Ford Falcon Ranchero.  I guess they only made these for like five years.

Just goes to show that around where I live you can still spot cars more rare than Ferraris and Bentleys.

It occurred to me as I was taking these pictures that I don’t have many Porsches represented here at EN, and this one is a fitting tribute to the brand I think.  Stunning car, and a proper M/T to boot.  I wouldn’t have through that the white/red combo would work but when it’s right there in front of you it’s hard to argue against it.

Oh, this is my 100th post.  Funny how quickly that flew by.  Thanks for following/reblogging/liking.  :-D 

At first I thought this was a GT, but then I read the badge and did a double take.  A Boxter Spyder?  I didn’t know they made such a car.

I can’t express how much I love the 850.  I saw another one as I was driving home but couldn’t take a picture of it because I was in traffic.  Two 850s in one day is pretty good by my standards.

Taken on 1/28/2012.  It took me a while to figure out what this one was.  At first I figured it was a 6-series from the ’70s, but they were all coupes.  Then I thought it was a 5-series that just had a limited run, or wasn’t sold in the USA.  Nope.

Finally I just Googled “BMW Bavaria” and found out that the badge wasn’t just an indication of some kind of limited or special trim.  Apparently these are pretty rare.
