Mercedes SL 65 AMG

October 27th, 2007 · No Comments

The ‘Spotted in Rotterdam’ day that started with the Corvette C6 ends in style: with a modern, slightly tacky and slightly ugly muscle car. Back at Coolhaven, this pimped SL65 awaits me. As said before, I am no Mercedes fan, and that is particularly the case with the modern models. And when a car like […]

Toyota Celica LT 1600 (1970-77)

October 27th, 2007 · 4 Comments

Granted, this isn’t the most exiting vintage Japanese car you can spot, but it is a big step in the correct direction! This Celica was not in the top 10 of most wanted spots in my little black book, but it is close enough to really excite me. I seldom see a really old Asian […]

Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Coupé

October 27th, 2007 · No Comments

I must admit… I like Aston Martin! What a nice car! Who needs words of praise, when you can look at the pictures: Must be a hell of a time to have to drive to work every day, with a car like this. The DB7 was the most successful Aston Martin model ever, with more […]

Mercedes 350SL (W107) (1971-1989)

October 27th, 2007 · No Comments

The Mercedes-Benz 350 SL was a two-seat open roadster produced by Mercedes-Benz with various engines from 1971 until 1989. White cars are never my thing, but underneath the color lies a quite pretty old convertible with a solid looking hardtop. On this clouded day probably a nice drive, and imagine what it would be like […]

Jaguar XK8 Convertible Mk-1

October 27th, 2007 · No Comments

Soon after the Corvette, I see this nice Jaguar. I like the lines of this car, it has the class a Jaguar needs. Just enjoy the pictures of this 2007 Jag: I don’t know all that much about this car, actually. I know it is fast enough to be an enjoyable ride, but no time […]

Chevrolet Corvette C6

October 27th, 2007 · No Comments

After visiting Blijdorp Zoo with a friend and her now one-year old baby girl, I ride my bike home, straight through the city. In a street with posh shops I spot this Corvette C6. Although I don’t really like most American muscle cars, and particularly the modern Vette’s, I take some pictures to give you […]

Bedford 1958 van

October 23rd, 2007 · 2 Comments

And a trip to the UK isn’t complete without some ugly old Bedford truck, obviously! Don’t know the model, don’t know much else about it. Don’t want to! I like the vans and trucks because I never see them in the Netherlands. Enjoy the pic’s 😉 And if you want to determine what type of […]
