Jensen GT (1975-1976)

December 31st, 2007 · 3 Comments

I have been on the look-out for a Jensen Interceptor for quite a while now. I am not quite sure why, probably just because the name sounds exciting and vintage. I have never watched the series The Saint, so that can’t be it 😉 A couple of months ago a Jensen passed me by on […]

Volkswagen Scirocco

December 30th, 2007 · No Comments

As many a car manufacturer, VW is reviving an old classic as well. In 2008, a third generation Scirocco will shred through the streets. For now, let’s enjoy this Karmann-build old school Scirocco, still quite a nice thoroughbred little racer. A first generation (1974-1981) model, if I am not mistaken. If it wasn’t for the […]

The last time I went on a computer gaming date to a friend, I probably was eleven. Now, twenty years later, I am off to do some Wii with a friend again 🙂 And on the way, I spot some nice cars, so quite a fun afternoon for me 😉 First, the impressive Alfa Romeo […]

Dodge Charger SRT-8

December 27th, 2007 · No Comments

Right before Christmas, somebody decided to go gift shopping in his 6.1 liter Hemi V8 rear-wheel drive Dodge Charger SRT-8. Maybe he was in a hurry 😉 The pictures aren’t that great, the Charger was, well, charging away while I was bravely peddling along on my little bike 🙂 I don’t really fancy the modern […]

Peugeot 404 panel truck

December 27th, 2007 · No Comments

I seem to keep spotting 404’s… What I like about this car, is that it, although obviously an oldie, is still in use. As a truck! I have no idea whether or not this is economically practical, but it sure shows that the Peugeot 404 is one rigid workhorse of a car! The car is […]

Jaguar XK-R Coupé Mk II

December 21st, 2007 · No Comments

Jaguar always makes noteworthy cars. They are lavishly luxurious, the lines are beautiful, and they can be very fast as well. So when you spot a Racing version of a already fast XK, you know you are in for a treat. Let’s feast on this supercharged Jag Performance, you ask? Well… you do the Googling, […]

Chevrolet Impala

December 21st, 2007 · 4 Comments

Maybe the Cadillac of two posts before was a bit to ‘young’ for Waizfisz, this Impala sure must tickle his fancy. The pictures are a bit lousy, but it is rather difficult to shoot pictures of such a large car, while driving next to it… I don’t know why, but I kinda like this car! […]

Audi Allroad Quattro & Audi RS4

December 21st, 2007 · No Comments

Now, let us enjoy ourselves with some gently restrained commuter cars who can drive like the way it is supposed to be driven: I would not be complaining if this was my lease car to drive to work every day… Gives you the opportunity to do something nice in the weekend as well 😉 What […]
