TVR Sagaris

September 7th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Ah, the silly joy of the cars made by TVR. You can be condescending, you can snigger at the schoolboy design, but it has to be said that at least they give you something to look at. And boy, there are some lines to look at on this nightmare of a batmobile. Unfortunately there is […]

Bentley Continental in cream and gold

August 12th, 2010 · No Comments

Holidaying in a sleepy British seaside resort, I spot this pimped Bentley. Boy oh boy, how ugly do you want your car?! The paint job is some pearly creamy white, obviously well trimmed with gold accents and gold rims. Oh, and lets not forget the charming vanity plates. Lovely! This car is lacking rhinestones 🙂

Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz

May 9th, 2010 · No Comments

How about a nice long boat of an American convertible to get things going again? Feast your eyes out on this beautifully preserved blue Cadillac: All interesting facts in the comments please! Not being a Cadillac connesseur, all I can say is that it is pretty, and that it is blue 😉 It appears to […]

Lomax 224

March 28th, 2010 · 2 Comments

On a semi-sunny day I spot this funny looking car. This little devil looks like an old racer of times long gone, Morgan comes to mind. A top spot to find just parked next to a busy road in Dordrecht? No, alas. I have been spotting cars for a while now, and have learned that […]

Ford Mustang Mach 1 (1972)

March 7th, 2010 · No Comments

I can appreciate a nice Pony on the streets, but whoah! This rusty old horse could use some good old-fashioned TLC… The Mach 1 designation makes this the performance version of the Ford Mustang, but if this is still the case remains to be seen… I know little of the Mach 1 versus the ‘normal’ […]

Bentley S3 (1962-65)

February 11th, 2010 · No Comments

When you spot an old Bentley, you have to take some pictures of it. Sure, the weather is grey and wet, obviously the car isn’t parked in the best spot to take pictures, and hey… let’s snap away with my crummy cameraphone! Unfortunately, the nice Canon Eos 40D is in the shop, so what are […]

Chevrolet Corvair (early 60s)

December 16th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Some pics from my crummy camera on my phone. Unfortunately, that was the best I could do besides drawing this car in pencil 😉 Oh well, maybe it is not unbecoming for this ‘small’ US car. I actually like the looks of this Corvair, but if the sources are to be believed, this is not […]

Opel Speedster / Vauxhall VX220

October 9th, 2009 · 4 Comments

The Opel Speedster is a nice car, albeit still an Opel. They are nice to drive, affordable, and not half bad looking once you get used to the boxy back. These cars aren’t that difficult to find for a spot, and basically I have never bothered. Let’s face it, at the end of the day […]
