Chevrolet Corvair (early 60s)

December 16th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Some pics from my crummy camera on my phone. Unfortunately, that was the best I could do besides drawing this car in pencil šŸ˜‰ Oh well, maybe it is not unbecoming for this ‘small’ US car. I actually like the looks of this Corvair, but if the sources are to be believed, this is not […]

Chevrolet Impala 3rd gen. (1965-1970)

June 11th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Back on the Coolhaven, I spot me this nice purple Chevrolet Impala. It is big, it is long, and it is… very purple! Perhaps not the most practical of cars, it nonetheless is a car that really has some presence to it. It can’t be compared to its current namesake, but hey, what else is […]

Well, for those who love the classic American pick-up truck, this is probably right up your alley. Enjoy this late fifties (albeit highly modernized) Chevrolet pick-up So, it appears the strange coincidences of this world have decided that, when I spot a Chevrolet Advanced Design, it is something like a 1958 or a 1959.

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! […]

Chevvie and Oldsmobile mega-post

November 5th, 2007 · 1 Comment

How about a combined posting of some vintage American muscle? I never get around to post them all here separately, not in the least because I have quite some research to do on these cars. I am not really up to spec with seventies American whales, pardon, cars. Let’s start with a car that is […]

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 […]

Chevrolet Corvette C1 (1953 – 1962)

October 14th, 2007 · 5 Comments

What a car! Normally, I am no big fan of ‘Vettes, and that is just by looking at them. Never even mind the handling… But this classic C1 Corvette! This is one of the cars I had on my shortlist, the list of cars I wanted to see. I love the looks of this car. […]
