      I see a lot of interesting vehicles as I walk around Brooklyn, and I usually stop and take pictures. Let me show you them.

      Cool. I see cool/stupid/nice/interesting vehicles all the time. Never take pictures though

      Definitely some vehicles in there I'd like to own. the dune buggy, a couple of the vans, the sweet fj.

      Can someone add the lowered Photoshop of the blue pickup? That was awesome back on vortex 2.0

      In that very first pic, the Toyota, doesn't it look like the body should be moved about 4" forward?

      Dibs on that Forester, especially if it's the no-longer-sold manual.

      Great cars! Such a random selection. I went to NYC for the first time a few months back. I loved all of the different cars and buildings.



      THis was down the block in Soho where we stayed.

      (I can take that down if you like. Not trying to jack the thread.)

      Anyway, good stuff.

      Thanks! Yeah, feel free to add stuff. The last thread had some neat cars that other people found in their towns, and on their travels, too.

      I remember you're old thread, this is a really neat idea. I'm sure you could make an art/photo book out of this idea and sell it in Williamsburg... Some really cool cars in here, keep it up.

      Funny, since all the pics have a really great uniformity to them I was going to offer (if the OP would be so kind to release the "rights" these photos) to put them together in an art book or mosaic or something.

      I think that'd be a really cool piece of art. PM if you're down, OP

      Thats exactly what I was thinking....I'd totally buy it too. I don't mean to derail the thread, but are you in publishing? I say go for it if you have the means to.

      Thanks for the compliments guys.
      DarkEnergist, I know you're a designer too, maybe we can collaborate

      I see these cars all the time (most of them....not all), and I'd like to re-shoot a lot of them. A book would be fun, but for now, you guys get to enjoy them for free.
