1985 Ford LTD LX

I had not realized that the car you see was kind of special for technical reasons until I looked it up. The blacked out grille and faded red stripe hidden in the side strip should have tipped me off. I hope it is just awaiting restoration under it's guardian motion sensor light.

What with constrained space and steel barrel, I could not get a proper profile, or a shot of the "LTD LX" badge on the trunk lid.

1975 MG MGB

Appears to have been parked where it is for some time, and cleared of debris occasionally. Sad about the damage, but of course that's makes it more interesting.

The shape of that heavy front bumper actually works well in preserving the profile and sporty looks. The rear bumper is good too. That sloping front profile is so classic, and over all the car really was designed beautifully.

1979 Porsche 924

Love the dark huge bubble of a rear window, which gives the illusion that this is a notchback. The circular side marker lights, the shut line of the door which extends into a seam above the window behind it. Suspect the reflector between the tailights is aftermarket. The dynamic curve of the sloping hood is only slightly interrupted by the interface with the windshield.

But even in this car German pragmatism is present -- the functional fuel cap instead of a door to hide it, the almost complete absence of chrome, the simple door pulls, a (minimal) back seat.

1976 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz

Cadillac has had such fine examples of excess, repeated in endless variation. The condition of this car only heightens its monstrosity. Such amazing trim pieces above and beyond what one would find on it's less gaudy but still impressive Cadillac siblings. I particularly enjoy the third picture for its crazed look. Although the Cadillac insignia is everywhere, the most prominent marking is "E L D O R A D O".

Sadly, due to cramped conditions no profile shot was possible.

Photographing the main attraction inevitably got other interesting cars into the background. These will be in the next post.

1986 GMC Sierra Classic Camper Special

Despite the moss and damp and damage, this truck is still useful. The dents and debris just give it added texture. Missing hubcaps on the passenger side suggest close contact with curbs. Found in the same neighbourhood as this car.
