Cadillac 1962 Coupe de Ville Convertible

September 30th, 2007 · No Comments

What a boat of a car! Really amazing! This Coupe de Ville has its front wheels parked on the sidewalk, but still it stands out at the back as well… This white classic Cadillac is in mint condition. I have never seen it before, so it’s probably a visitor. Good! I need more visitors with […]

Mercedes 300SEL

September 30th, 2007 · No Comments

Imagine my surprise… do I spot yet another Heckflosse in my street? What are the odds?! On closer inspection, however, this appears to be a different Merc, no less than a 300SEL. That it, I THINK it is. Please correct me if I am wrong, I don’t particularly fancy Mercedus’/Mercedussus/Mercedii (or whatever is the plural […]

Statistics for September

September 30th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Unlike Waizfisz, I don’t have very fancy statistics running for this site. One of the things I should look into, oh well, some day šŸ™‚ However, I do have some rudimentary statistics and the top ten of best viewed pages is quite unexpected: Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder Mercedes G class audi 80 cabrio b4 Ford Mustang […]

Hyundai Tiburon

September 30th, 2007 · 4 Comments

On my way to the Gelredome (to visit Monsterjam), today, i was passed by a Hyundai Tiburon. I had never seen this car before and never heard about it either to be honest. I searched the internet and found that it’s powered by a 2.7 liter V6 engine. This car was an Austrian one. Is […]

Citroƫn 2CV AZ-L Cabriolet

September 29th, 2007 · 5 Comments

Walking to Voorburg on my way to the market to buy bread, cheese and fruit I spotted this beautiful 2CV, a cabriolet. Shiny red, as good as new. These cars were produced until 1990 and this particular one is a 1989 model. What a shame that modern day cars don’t resemble these “ancient” cars anymore.

Mercedes SL500 Roadster

September 27th, 2007 · No Comments

This car is a direct successor of one of the most beautiful cars ever designed: the 1954 300SL Gullwing. I am no Mercedes fan at all, but the Gullwing… This sporty SL500 from 2005 is a long, long way from the classic beauty of the 300SL, but this site was turning a bit in a […]

Triumph Spitfire Mk4

September 24th, 2007 · 5 Comments

A while ago, I shot some pictures of this nice Triumph Spitfire IV at Ter Heijde. Somehow, I have never posted them. Why? I don’t remember, but anyway, here they are! It is a nice and well-kept little sports car from the seventies. I am quite fond of the little sporty cars England produced decades […]

Volvo 440 Toncar Estate conversion!!!

September 21st, 2007 · 9 Comments

this car is parked a few blocks from my house. I saw it a few times passing by, but unfortunately, I wasn’t fast enough to take pictures. It is just a ordinary ugly white Volvo 440 which was build in Born, a small town in the south of the Netherlands. However, this isn’t just a […]
