      Yeah, I'm near McGolrick park/Nassau Ave. Haven't seen that Bronco yet, but it looks rad. Not sure if it's $12K rad, but still awesome.

      Speaking of awesome, Seabird, that Porsche is mean looking.

      Very cool. I live on Graham and Meeker. Saw these two cars the other day.




      first one i've ever seen in person:



      I LOVE the Williamsburg/Greenpoint area.

      We need to start a Williamsburg Vortex car club! We should all grab some beers, and go watch F1 or just talk cars at a bar in the area. Seems to be plenty of us in the area!

      EDIT again! 2000 POSTS!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Probably been answered already but in case it hasn't... this is done by turning the leaf springs around front to back, which moves the offset location point forward, extending your wheelbase. Very common with the old rigs.

      oh wow! I wondered what this was:



      And the fake snow in the air one morning. That would explain a lot then.

      I guess i need to start taking pictures of more autos in the area, i see so many cool ones.

      Yeah, they do a ton of filming for BWE, and other shows. The entire Atlantic City boardwalk set is at the end of Franklin Ave in Greenpoint, behind all those stacked up shipping containers.

      Here are some more from last week:

      There's usually some cool cars on Graham Ave. Since it's getting warmer, i'll have to go out and take some pics this week.

      Love the thread Mr Mooks. I've seen a few of those cars posted before....haven't been to BK in a while though. The cars and especially the buildings [and tucked away relics of the past like old trainstations *City Hall *] are definitely two of some of the main reasons I love this city. I used to take tons of pics of interesting cars, but that's all gone.

      Nice. I still haven't seen an NSX in person. That reminds me though, I saw a black Ferrari 412 zip by me the other day, but I wasn't able to get a picture.

      I saw that 3rd gen Camaro you posted on the last page a couple weeks ago.

      This van;



      ..is always parked in the same spot. I'm in that area a bit for work so if you ever see my brown WRX tooling around take a shot!

      I'll start this update with a fellow forum member's car. Not sure who's it is, but it has a VW Vortex sticker on the side window:

      A) The aura created by the cell phone quality adds a nice, retro feel to the photographs.
      B) You have a good eye for interesting vehicles.
