Triumph TR7

January 21st, 2009 · No Comments

So, not yet another TR6 for me this time, nope, it’s a late seventies rear-wheel drive Triumph TR7. I like the TR6, the design is exciting and filled with emotion. This car, I am not so sure about. To be honest, it is not a completely honest and unbiased opinion. This car looks remarkable like […]

Alfa Romeo Giulia 2000 GT Veloce (1971-1976)

March 10th, 2008 · 5 Comments

I have a crappy Alfa Romeo Sprint GT 1300 Junior on this site, but that did not stop me to take some pictures of this 2000 Sprint GT. Or 2000 GTV. Or Giulia 2000 GT Veloce. Whatever. Nice, speedy Alfa Romeo that has trouble keeping all its wheels on the road when driven really fast […]

Mini John Cooper Works GP

This car has been on my ‘to spot’ list for quite some time now, and finally: here it is. The little racing monster they call a Mini GP. I have stumbled across number 311 in a series of 2000, if the various sites are to be believed. How handy that they write its serial number […]

Bertone Fiat Ritmo 85 S Cabrio

November 7th, 2007 · 4 Comments

To my surprise, I spot yet another Bertone on the Coolhaven! This Fiat Ritmo isn’t build by Bertone like the X1/9, but merely restyled. The car looks nice, especially considering you are looking at a 1978 Fiat… I would have loved to tell you more about Bertone and its styling company. Having already posted ‘the’ […]

Fiat Bertone X1/9 … AGAIN!

August 10th, 2007 · 1 Comment

What are the odds… I reposted the Fiat Bertone from the ‘old’ site a couple of days ago. These pictures were taken some months ago, but imagine my surprise today: in exactly the same spot sits another Bertone! First you think of a respray, but these two cars are definitely different cars! Just compare the […]

Fiat (?) Bertone X 1/9

July 30th, 2007 · No Comments

At first, I failed to notice this car, but suddenly it occurred to me: this is a fairly rare car. I don’t particularly like it, this is not the type of car that gets my juices flowing, but still, you got to appreciate a more or less unique vehicle. The Fiat Bertone is built between […]
