1980 Chevrolet Corvette

The owner says that he has had the original anemic engine replaced with a more modern and powerful V8, plus assorted restoration.

I have to admit that despite my ... umm ... distaste ... for Corvettes of the late 70s / early 80s, I enjoyed seeing and taking pictures of this car. There are lots of interesting shapes which can be extracted from it, and the red is really Red. It almost made me revive the "guilty pleasure" tag.

1980 GMC Caballero

It's a Nova! No its an El Camino! No! It's a Cabellero! Another delightful car that GM built to amaze us with decades later.

The owner obviously has a sense of humour. Love the cheezie script used for the name badge, the "GMC" hood ornament, the recessed and curved rear window, the way the side windows slope forwards in front of the B pillar. And that profile that is both appealing and odd at the same time. Wheels are original, and the load bed doesn't seem to leak.

1980 Volkswagen Jetta GL Turbo Diesel

Another fine bit of German engineering. Straight lines, rounded corners, a little chrome, a little awkward with the sloping hood in profile. Fairly glows against a dark background.
