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 🙂

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’ […]

Feast your eyes out on a proper off-roader! Sod off with your Cayenne or X5, this is a car right up there with the Landcruiser and Defender. If you can’t walk on the roof of your car without worrying about the paint job or the structural integrity, you are not driving a off-road vehicle! Damn, […]

Renault 15 Coupé (1971-1980)

February 27th, 2009 · 1 Comment

This Renault 15, funny nose and all, is actually very much the Renault 12 as a coupé version, but who’s complaining? The car is funnily ugly in my eyes, but somehow I […]

Volkswagen 181

October 29th, 2008 · 2 Comments

You don’t expect a nice and special car on a location like, say, a land fill or garbage dump. Well, I spot this funny Volkswagen on a garbage recycling and disposal area in the city I live. For some reason, I have fond memories of these boxy VW’s, but oddly enough can’t I recall a […]

Dodge Dart, 5th gen. (1970-76)

September 7th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Somebody has been busy with this car. Some strange striping, a vinyl roof and bonnet, strange.. Oh well, it is a not too spectacular Dodge Dart, let’s just look at it and move on 🙂 The pictures were taken in the rain, so they aren’t really good. Wikipedia has a very complete page on the […]
