Carspotting in Portland

For those of you who didn’t heed my shameless plea accept my invitation to follow my visit to Bridge City on Instagram, here’s a dump of some of the interesting cars I saw during my visit. Lots of older stuff, I certainly saw some of the newer high-end cars but as expected it was more old Saabs and Dodges than it was Lamborghinis.

Beautiful classic 911 on Burnside

Before my ride even turned up at the airport, this awesome Datsun 510 Wagon came by.
A ‘71 Chrysler 300 in St. Johns.
I saw three or four J70 Land Cruisers during my visit, as well as countless 80s, 100s, and 200s.
