The Yugo thread got me thinking. What unusual cars have you seen on the roads recently?
Yesterday I saw a bright orange '57 Chevy coupé going from the 405 north to the 605. There was a nice-looking Nomad not to far ahead of it. Going north on the 405 near LAX I saw a big red 1940s car. I don’t know what kind it was. It was a big bulgy thing with “Super DeLuxe” on the bonnet. I generally call these “Bulgemobiles”.
Earlier, on the 22 westbound, I saw a white Sunbeam Alpine. That one got me anxious to drive my '66 MGB that is undergoing restoration with excruciating slowness by a couple of hobbyists.
And of course I drive around in a 1946 Willys CJ2A on weekends sometimes. People seem to enjoy seeing it. They smile, honk, give me the “thumbs up”, shout “Nice rig!”, etc. A friend of mine calls it a “happy car” because she says it makes people happy to see it.
There are so many Porsches, Mercedes, Volvos, BMWs, SUVs of all makes, Hondas, Toyotas, and so forth that crowd the local freeways that it’s fun to see something out of the ordinary.
So what unusual cars have you seen lately?
