What We Saw – Cars

So I couldn’t wait as long for the next post full of car photos as there has been a wealth in just the past two weeks. We also encountered several interesting rides in our travels to Northern Washington and Victoria, BC.

1968 Mercedes Benz 200

Hard to tell exactly, but probably a 1970 Volkswagen Beetle. There are literally dozens of these in our neighborhood, so this will suffice to represent them all.

Find of the week: a 1960 Studebaker Lark VIII

In Port Angeles, Washington we found these two gems:

An exceedingly rare 1967 Jeep J-3000 truck. Oddly it was being driven by two teenagers.

  1. Bandon has a big classic car community. Did you know? Your “car spots” deserve e-mail delivery directly to Juergen and Chris.

  2. great documentation. i, too, enjoy the hobby of car-watching and car-blogging in portland; stumbled upon this blog with a google image search for “renault caravelle 1100.” how do you figure out the detailed manufacturing information for all these cars? how do you know that it’s a 1964?

  3. Tony, I love your ‘Old Parked Cars’ blog. The way I figure out the date is not exactly a science. I take several photos of each car, highlighting the wordmarks, grills, headlights, etc. and then just do Google searches until I nail down the year that looks exactly like what I’ve got.

    That Renaul Caravelle is one of my favorite finds. You must be taking some photos in NW PDX because I’ve seen that Rambler American and the Plymouth Valiant around too.

  4. Yep, Northwest–I’ve seen my apartment in the background of your photos, and the yellow Chevy pickup is across the street from my place right now. … Although the white Valiant was parked in Southeast when I saw it.

    See you around the hood!

  5. That is a 1967, not a 1968 Firebird. The wing window gives it away, only year for both the Camaro, and the Firebird, wich had a wing window, was 1967.
    All in all, great photo’s and a great subject!
