Today we are on the hunt for one of the rarest streetparked cars in New York City.

I rarely head out to the top of Chelsea, above the West Village and the Meatpacking district but below the no man’s land around Penn Station, to look for cars. Lots of interesting vehicles drive through there, but it’s rare to see things reliably hanging around on the street. Except!

There is someone, some brave and heroic automotive owner, who keeps a trio of spectacular imported cars out on the street.

Join us as we go looking for them!
