1970s / American / Rewind

Rewind to California in the early 1970s

We’re wrapping up our tour of the United States by taking a trip to California. The first photo you see below was taken in the San Francisco Bay area in 1972, the next three were shot in Los Angeles County in 1975, and the last one was snapped in Los Angeles in 1973.

What car(s) can you identify in these images? What one(s) would you most like to have in your garage today? We’d take the Alfa Romeo Berlina as a daily driver, and keep the brown Porsche 911 for weekend trips.
