YAK Car Pic of the Day

Tell me, when was the last time you saw a 1961 Corvair Lakewood 700 station wagon? What? Never? Head over to Grand Islandand you might still catch this one which I spotted sitting in a driveway. Two-toned, wire wheels, white-walls — it still looks great 50 years later! You can view the original brochure here.

’73 Pontiac Grand Am, Grand Island, N.Y.

One of my favorite GM cars from the 1970s, this 1973 Pontiac Grand Am sits outside a Grand Island repair/custom/car audio shop after having a little “nose work” done. See the original brochure here.

’68 Dodge Charger R/T, Grand Island, N.Y.

This pristine 1968 Dodge Charger R/T was seen yesterday in the parking lot of a Grand Island business park. Looks like someone’s enjoying their daily drive to work! See a brochure of the entire ’68 Dodge Scat Pack here.

’41 Chevy Special DeLuxe

Spotted this 1941 Chevrolet Special DeLuxe Sport Sedan in the parking lot of the Grand Island Holiday Inn the other day. Dig those fender skirts and Moon discs. Pretty spiffy.

’88 Toyota Supra, Grand Island, N.Y.

The September issue of Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car has an article about “cheap” GT cars for at little as four grand. Among those in the up-to-ten-grand category is the 1986 1/2-1992 Toyota Supra. And darned if I don’t spot one a couple of days ago on Grand Island — for sale. A 1988 Toyota Supra, this one looks pretty good, and (surprisingly) pretty showroom stock!
