Jensen GT (1975-1976) proper shots!

February 15th, 2008 · 2 Comments

My previous encounter with this Jensen was a brief one, unfortunately, so I was very happy when I spotted the car again, while parking! Just my luck that it parked on the most shadowy spot the driver could find on this abundantly sunny day, but still. The previous post did receive zero to no attention […]

Spotted a ‘new’ Mustang GT on the highway, and since Lex is in the market for a ’68 Mustang convertible, why not shoot some pictures of a crappy descendant… Not the most glamorous pictures, but hey, a. it is a ugly car. Well, ugly is maybe overstating it, but this is how a Ford Mustang […]

Maserati 3200 GT

September 2nd, 2007 · 2 Comments

Again, off-Coolhaven, but for a car like this, who’s complaining? This nice Maserati was parked near the Erasmus bridge, and was too nice not to take some snapshots. The first Maserati build when Fiat took over the shop, it’s lines are pleasing to the eye and the taillights are note-worthy: boomerang shaped, consisting of LED’s, […]
