RustyButTrusty on the Street – Dodge, Jaguar, Volvo, Opel, Chevrolet

August 28, 2014

Here’s another entry in the chronicling of interesting cars on the roads of the San Francisco Bay Area of California. And this is only what your faithful correspondent can capture on camera – for example, today there was a Rover P4 on the streets of San Francisco, and an Alfa Berlina on the streets of Berkeley/Oakland. To catch us up, check out this 1964 Dodge 880 sedan. The owner has done some cool modifications that really add to the allure of this car – a slightly lowered body with shiny but worn paint is offset by red reverse steel wheels with faux knockoffs. This picture doesn’t really do it justice – if you live in Oakland, keep an eye open for this example of “the most elegant automobile ever fashioned by Dodge” (says the brochure).

Stored for Years – 1966 Jaguar 3.8 S-Type

July 10, 2014

The internet is good for many things. Selling blue pills, miracle weight cures, dates with attractive foreign ladies who will compliment you for your structure, and making classic cars look great in a brief listing that leaves much to the imagination. And yet, sellers often don’t take advantage of this opportunity, posting pixelated, poorly composed images that don’t tell you much about the car, much less make you feel inspired about what you could do with it. On the other hand, much of that could have something to do with the car, and most classic Jaguars will make the selling photographer’s job easy. Check out this 1966 Jaguar 3.8 S-Type for sale for a mere $3950 in Costa Mesa, CA.
