      This guy saw me poking around his garage...


      So he pulled her out for me to get a better picture, sounded

      He apologized twice for it to being so dirty



      This is what he's working on now...


      He said to stop by next week, he's got a vette in the garage across the street.

      Great thread!!

      Ive talked to the owner. He's kind of a dick. I was trying to talk to him a out the car and what he's done to it. His response was "Its a car what more did you want to know"

      Hey guys, it's cool to add pics. I like seeing whats around other towns. I was pretty amazed at what sits on the street here in Brooklyn, which is why I started this thread, so if your town has cool stuff, please share.

      Jack, that red Chevy is awesome. I imagine it has a nice rumble to it. And call me crazy, but me likey something about that crazy-ass MKII from Houston. I think because it looks like a prop from Star Wars.

      I was over by Grand St and Olive.

      Such a pretty car, and the guy and his wife were really cool and open to talk about the '49. All they do is go to car shows and win trophies it seems. Love the small community local vibe of Brooklyn. I was tempted to ask if he'd be willing to do some body work on the Volvo

      Hey Jack, you have a white 240 sedan, right? Does it have some sort of aftermarket silver wheels on it? Maybe some R 5-spokes?

      Oh my god, the ****ing playgirl van. It seems like it never moves from where it's parked.

      Hey, who's going to buy that smashed Oldsmobile convertible on N 12th and Bedford? It was in decent shape before snowpacalypse hit and it got rear-ended...

      I also want to meet the dude who has one of these parked in McCarren:

      its interesting because i saw a 400i going down Wythe the other day and thought "you really never know whats you'll see when you wake up in the am"

      You have to be retarded or crazy to own a car in NYC, so im glad to know im not the only one who is.

      Seen that Playgirl van a lot, too. Not sure why I don't have pics up. It's a real WTF car. It's in pretty horrible shape, too, so it's not some rolling advert for a current campaign. Just somebody's daily ride. Maybe a magazine distributor?

      I'd love to have a larger scale model of one, but I did find this RHD one at a local junk shop (Junk, actually, for you locals):
