Ford Mustang II (1974-78)

May 29th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Normally, I really like the old ‘Stangs, but this pony is not worth getting excited about… Brrr! Granted, it weren’t the best of times for a car to be born, but still. This is a sad derivative from the original Mustang! I am probably offending quite some hardcore Mustang lovers, but I can’t help it. […]

Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano

May 27th, 2008 · No Comments

Ah… now this is a fast car I can appreciate! Unfortunately, my lease contract won’t cover the expenses, otherwise this would have been my car 😉 I am very fond of the lines on this super car, and it is said it drives severely fast as well. The company claims a top speed in excess […]

Fiat 600 – Seicento

May 27th, 2008 · No Comments

I am a sucker for these little cars, I like the Cinquecento, and I like this Seicento as well. Obviously, it isn’t as brilliant as the best MPV ever, the classic sixties Multipla beauty, but still. It is a nice and funny car to look at, and this particular one is in perfect shape as […]

Jaguar Mark II 3.4 (1967-1969)

May 25th, 2008 · No Comments

Oh, sometimes you just get lucky. On my way to a restaurant, I run into this beauty. One of my favorite Jaguars, and a 3.4 liter as well! This car was sort of a racing monster in its days, being the preferred car of all of those who wanted to go fast… and being quite […]

Ford Country Squire (1979-91) 7th gen.

May 22nd, 2008 · No Comments

Now this is what I call a long car! At first, I did not even recognize it, since the traditional wooden side paneling is missing. But it is hard to mistake this car for something else 🙂 It isn’t a rare find, being built in large numbers (no pun intended), but they aren’t that common […]

Small delay in updates…

May 10th, 2008 · No Comments

While kayaking, I ran into the business end of a kayak ramp a couple of days back… with my head! So after some hospitalization and a nice concussion, I am now recovering with some serious headaches. Soo no new cars here for a few days, I am afraid. Don’t worry, I will return soon!

Ferrari 575 Maranello

May 5th, 2008 · No Comments

I don’t want to turn Cars of Coolhaven into an oldtimer and classic cars site, but lately I do seem to spot fancy oldies from the past more than the exclusive hot stuff from the present. Oh well, the weather is finally understanding that it is going to be summer soon, and that means lots […]

Talbot-Matra Murena (1980-1983)

May 4th, 2008 · 2 Comments

The new neighborhood starts to deliver… while moving, I fortunately had the possibility to stop and take some pictures of this Talbot Matra Murena. Some people love it, some loathe it, I, well, I just think it is a fun looking car from an era now gone. For a reason… This car is basically made […]
