On my most recent visit to New York City, I caught up with a good friend of mine who lives in Brooklyn. We decided to meet at the Bedford Avenue subway stop in Williamsburg for a bite to eat, then walk back to his place in Bushwick. As usual, I was keeping my eyes peeled for a classic by the curbside.
Those of you who have read my articles or follow my car spotting on Instagram (@parkedinbnenyc) will know I have found many a classic on the streets of New York City, even though it’s a rougher environment for cars than most. On this walk, I encountered the typical gentrified Williamsburg vehicles (a bunch of crossovers here, a Fiat 500 or Mini there). I didn’t expect to see anything interesting until we crossed under the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway into Bushwick, a bohemian, industrial-chic enclave full of artists’ studios and hipsters with plenty of old vans and Benzes. But before we even reached the BQE I saw this, inexplicably parked on the sidewalk outside an elementary school.
Forgive my ignorance but I must ask: what is this? Do I need to have my CC credentials yanked for not being able to identify this sports car?
