Well, this car needs no introduction, and no tech talk either. This is the E-Type! Currently, I work near a prime wedding location, Delft city hall. Very handy for spotting nice cars on your lunch break šŸ™‚

Sunbeam Alpine Mk IV (1964-65)

March 30th, 2008 · 3 Comments

In Newcastle, we have a few hours to kill before our ferry departs for IJmuiden. Having been in Newcastle before, I am preparing for a coffee shop, a book, and that’s it. This city isn’t really high on my scale of lovable, charming cities ;-). So imagine my surprise when I run into this charming […]

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! […]

Peugeot 404

November 21st, 2007 · 3 Comments

Close to were I spotted the Celica LT, I run into this nice classic Peugeot 404. This Pininfarina designed sedan was enormously robust, and I would say, lovely designed. And since there are nearly 2 million produced between 1960 and 1975 alone… I like a car like this, it is in mint condition, and the […]

Another Ford Mustang CoupƩ (1968-70)

November 19th, 2007 · No Comments

This poor Mustang is a bit run down… It could really use some spit and polish. Its spotted quite a while ago but never made it to the ‘new’ site. The Continental triggered something in my head, I suddenly remembered these pictures. If you are after a really nice example of this American muscle car, […]

Lincoln Continental third generation (1961-1969)

November 19th, 2007 · No Comments

This large Lincoln Continental actually isn’t… that large! Granted, it is a wee bit longer than say a Peugeot 207, but it is about 70 centimeters shorter than its predecessor from the fifties. How about that? Again, a car with suicide doors, I do seem to have a thing for spotting cars with these funny […]

Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

August 6th, 2007 · 4 Comments

Damn… I love a car like this! In the same garage where I ran into the Volvo 1800 was parked this very nice Volkswagen. Oh, I am a sucker for those white-walled tyres… I spotted this car before, but never had a camera with me. It seems, some careless owner decided that an all-access public […]
