      I this thread.

      Thought I'd share one of my favorite blogs: http://www.oldparkedcars.com/

      Might be the fact that it's in Oregon, but I love looking at street scenes that remind me of my childhood.

      I really like that red Porsche that Alex posted up top (sorry, I suck at Porsche model numbers), and every time I see a car on the Beeks lot, I get crazy ideas for new projects.
      Love the thread and it was the inspiration for my own:

      I didn't know about Sweet Toof until I watched Exit Through The Gift Shop a few weeks ago. I need to pay more attention to my street artists. Seen some Fairey, Space Invader, Iz The Wiz and some local NYC writers. And Sweet Toof, of course.

      I always find it interesting that 99% of NYC looks like the ghetto... straight hood, yet you see $100,000+ cars on a regular basis.
      Let's argue this the American way; volume, proximity, and repetition.

      IIRC the Camo Corolla has PA plates, so it's possible.

      Black MKV with smaller-not-baller aftermarket silver multi-spoke wheels? If that's yours I see it all the time and think "That guy knows what's up." I'll grab a picture one of these days.

      I also need to get a shot of the two Fahrenheit GTI's that park in front of the same condo by McCarren park.

      They built the whole Atlantic City boardwalk set on the other side of my neighborhood, but tonight they were filming at the local park on my block. I brought the real camera out this time.
