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 […]

Lancia Fulvia Coupé Rallye 1.3

September 7th, 2008 · 4 Comments

The name alone is worth it! What a nice little car. Obviously I can’t call it a sports car, but it looks like a lot of fun to drive anyway. I spotted it driving in Dordrecht, and since I had nothing better to do, I followed it a bit to see if it was about […]

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 […]

Maserati Biturbo (1981-91)

January 18th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Well, you love this car, or you ridicule it… One thing is for sure, it is hardly a Maserati! That is, as Maserati was known before this era. For some reason, owner De Tomaso thought it a good idea to stop making super cars, and start making, well, this: The Biturbo is a two-door coupé […]

Fiat 500 K or Giardiniera

January 7th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Wheeh, finally I spot my much desired Giardiniera! On a rainy day in January, this orange little wonder was parked only one street away from my girlfriend’s house. A car that makes you ignore the rain (and a nice little bit of hail…) and just start taking pictures. Cars like these really crack me up, […]

the new Fiat 500/cinquecento

December 16th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Well, we are going to be seeing a lot of these cars around real soon, but for now this was the first new cinquecento I spotted ‘live’, so why not take some pictures? I think it has little or nothing to do with the old 500, but that was to be expected, I guess. I […]

Fiat 124 Sport Spider (1985)

December 6th, 2007 · 3 Comments

You look out of the window, and you see this driving through the street: What kind of car is this?! It looks somewhat classical Alfa Romeo, but what model then?! Time to leave the computer, this is as good a time as any to go grocery shopping! This part of Coolhaven is mostly for resident […]
