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 šŸ˜‰ It appears to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Maserati GranTurismo

August 10th, 2009 · 3 Comments

It has been a while, but finally I spot myself something new, sporty and nice! The lines on this GranTurismo are great, and if the rumours are correct the convertible version is going to be a looker as well. Aah, something to look out for! This GranTurismo, officially designer as a long-distance cruiser, is equipped […]

Volkswagen Type 3 – 1600 Fastback

June 5th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Well, its earlier brother is well and good documented here on the site, but that won’t stop me from posting pictures of this nice VW 1600. There is nothing wrong with the notchback, but to be frank I find it a bit boring. This Fastback is neither a classic or a extremely beautiful car, but […]

Dodge Dart 1963, 3th gen.

April 10th, 2009 · No Comments

The classic American car does not always do it for me, some are a bit too much over the top, all are way too big and none of them are even near practical. But boy, some of them can be pretty! And this is a pretty little Dodge. Hard to imagine that they would market […]

Autobianchi Bianchina Panoramica

April 5th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Awww man I love little cars like this Bianchina! To me, it is a lesser known cousin to the 500 and the Mini, but look at it! Must be a hoot to own one of these little buggers. Sure enough, it shares a lot of hardware with the Fiat 500, but Autobianchi made it into […]

Singer Vogue (1961-66)

March 4th, 2009 · 1 Comment

On a trip to the UK, I spot myself this nicely preserved Singer Vogue. It is one of those cars from the Rootes Group that is known under a variety of names, as is the case with the Sunbeam put online earlier. This car is essentially a Hillman Super Minx. Nothing wrong with a little […]
