The Cars of Others – Saab 95, Mustang II

Spotted this Saab 95 wagon outside WhiskeyFest Northwest. Believe it’s a later production model from the 70s, due to the front fascia design, front hinged doors, and rear ‘spoiler’.

This Mustang II ‘Ghia’ falls somewhere between 1974-78. Aside from being painted and upholstered with one of the most offensively boring color combos possible it looks pretty good for its age.

The Keen Shoes Checker cab, parked near their new storefront on NW 13th. Based on the bumper, a 1972 or later example.

The Cars of Others – Model A + Bug Truck

The sun has people bringing out their fair weather transportation. Here’s a few sightings from the opening days of Spring.

This Volkswagen Beetle pickup is definitely not a factory job (in fact there doesn’t seem to have ever been a mass produced pickup variant). This conversion is a little bit rough cut but I like that whoever performed it incorporated the rear quarter and fender rather than lopping it all off to allow for a slightly wider cargo area.

Nicely restored Ford Model A parked outside Bridgeport. Early Fords are relatively common and not a personal favorite of mine, but anything this old being street driven is pretty cool.
