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 […]

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 […]

DAF 44 (1966-74)

October 7th, 2009 · 3 Comments

I am no big fan of the DAF motoring brand, but since I live in the Netherlands I am bound to run into the little buggers every now and then. In my mind, these cars are in the same category of ‘slow, boring and boxy’ as old cheap Volvo’s. What a pleasant surprise to see […]

Chrysler Newport – Third Gen. (1961-1964)

August 8th, 2009 · No Comments

Some cars just speak to you, and this is one of those cars. Normally, the big American boats mainly look kinda ridiculous in my eyes, but this Newport is nice. Obviously it is the small car in the Chrysler range of the time… that explains something. It is always amazing to see the specs on […]

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 […]

Tatra T-11 (1924), well probably…

May 13th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Months ago, frequent commenter Jan send me some pictures of this great old little open car. I never got around to posting them here on the site. Why? Well, let’s just say I would have had ‘No. 1 Procrastinator’ tattooed on my ass in very large and brightly coloured letters, if only I had gotten […]
