Carspotters’ Challenge #129: Lake Shore Drive, Chicago


The year isn’t mentioned. I’m guessing 1959-1960. Aside from the year, what cars can you specify?   --Tigerstrypes   References: http://rogerwilkerson.tumblr.com

The Sneaky Hot 1974-1983 Volkswagen Rabbit (aka VW Golf Mk1)


"Sneaky Hot". For the uninitiated, the term is somewhat au courant these days and refers to people (okay, almost always female) who are "not usually in the conversation of being among the hottest of their group, but when mentioned or seen you remember that they are rather attractive."  It could, in my view, have a temporal component as well, describing someone you've seen or perhaps known for a while, who didn't initially strike you as being all that, but one day you look at them and see a certain attractiveness that you didn't notice before.

Feb. 23 Weekly Open Thread--The rarity of nice, original AMC Gremlins


When was the last time you saw an AMC Gremlin on the road? And when you saw that Gremlin trundling around, what sort of shape was it in?

Carspotters’ Challenge #128: Popular Mechanics Magazine, 1960


I need to cleanse my palate from all the new-car taste: That’s better. The pic comes from a Popular Mechanics magazine, circa January 1960.

The 2015 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited: Fun for Dad, Fun for the Family


There are at least three levels of family vehicle: 1) Can I run the kids around and do errands in this car?

2015 Nissan Pathfinder: Perfect for Paths Already Found


In my one-week test of the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum 4X4, I found it a revelation--quick, quiet, smooth, spacious, surprisingly efficient, and thus completely unlike any previous Pathfinder 4X4.

Al Bundy's... "Dodge"?


"Married... With Children'"s Al Bundy (Ed O'Neill) had it rough. He was a struggling women's shoe salesman, his wife was a couch potato, his daughter was, well...

Carspotters’ Challenge #127: None Of The Above


I’ve heard or the 1980s movie Brewster’s Millions, but it was only recently that I’ve watched it. Boy, was I glad I did!

The Ford Fiesta EcoBoost 1.0L: Tiny Boost, Put to the Test


I find there's something about a small cheap honest subcompact with a manual shift that's hard not to love.

Carspotters’ Challenge #126: TJ Hooker in Hot Pursuit

I love being an ‘80s retro nut. I get a thrill of finding stuff related to the decade. It’s the reason why I found out about the track whose music video was used for a successful Carspotters’ Challenge.

The Best Car Commercial Ever Made(?)

We've examined a few commercials before, some in detail worthy of OCD status. We've marvelled at the kitchiness of the slogans, the blending of retro and modern, celebrity endorsements, and the apparent disconnect between the commercial and the reality.

Carspotters’ Challenge #125: George Pattison Pontiac dealership, New Orleans, 1963


You know, for a Pontiac dealership, I find the lack of Pontiacs disturbing. Maybe you can find ‘em.   --Tigerstrypes   References: http://rogerwilkerson.tumblr.com

January 26 Weekly Open Thread: No. Just. . . . . .No.


America's Best-Selling Cars and Truck are Built on Lies: The rise of fake engine noise Fake engine noise has become one of the auto industry’s dirty little secrets, with automakers from BMW to Volkswagen turning to a sound-boosting bag of tricks.

Carspotters’ Challenge #124: The Driver (1978)

Being that Truck Lust theme had more to give than expected, it made sense that the Carspotters’ Challenge was to be truck-related.

January 19 Weekly Open Thread: The Return of the Ranger?


We'll start this week on another pickup-themed note: the potential return of a smaller pickup in Ford's arsenal.

Carspotters’ Challenge #123: Exotic Blur


While looking for some Cadillac info, I came across this pic. You’re welcome.   --Tigerstrypes   References: Pic from Jalopnik/minhimalism

Pontiac Star Chief


This will be kind of a drive-by (pun intended) post; even I will admit that the Star Chief has little to recommend it, barely making it over the rather low bar we here at Car Lust set for automobiles to be "interesting".

Truck Lust: 1929-1932 Dodge Merchant's Express


I'm going to say it right up front: This may be, in my opinion, the most handsome pickup truck ever: When I began my foray into the world of pickups, this Dodge was one of the first ones to grab my attention.

2015 Lexus IS350 AWD: Time To Pick Sides


You wouldn't be alone if you were to claim not to have much of an opinion about Lexus one way or another.

December 29 Weekly Open Thread: "The World's Most Irritating Car Commercial"

Lately here at Car Lust, we've featured a few new and old commercials, for better or for worse. A Corvette ad of over 30 years ago is probably the best of the best, but now this ad may be the worst of the worst.
