1962 Ford Falcon Futura

The Falcon, though it wasn't the first American compact of the sixties, was the most modern and most successful. The Falcon featured clean, simple styling, reliable and economic mechanicals, and proved to be the right car for those looking for honest, basic transportation. 1962 was the first year the Futura trim, only offered on the two-door, was available.

1972 Cadillac Coupe DeVille

The massive fourth-generation Deville series arrived in 1971, and was all you would expect from a full-size luxury car of the seventies. Everything was huge, and elegant, brougham-y touches were everywhere. This one has been customized slightly, with a two-tone paint job and muscle car touches such as the cowl-induction scoop and white letter tires.

1986 Isuzu Trooper II

The Isuzu Trooper first arrived in the U.S. in 1983, and was one of the first modern SUVs sold here, though it was soon joined by the S10 Blazer, XJ Cherokee, 4Runner, and others. Of course, the Trooper was a little more rugged than those, but that made it an immensely practical and capable off-roader. These early circle-light Troopers are getting rare, especially in such great original, stock condition. This one looks awesome on its original white steel rims.

1970 Dodge Charger R/T

This is by far one of the most amazing cars I've found ever since starting this blog. Let's see, it's a heavily patina-ed '70 Charger, which is pretty amazing alone, but it's also an R/T and has (according to the license plates) a 440. It was even an original Plum Crazy car! This is pretty much a holy grail for Mopar enthusiasts. I didn't think at the time to check if it was a 4-Speed or Auto. A spectacular car, in every way.
