Pontiac Firebird 2nd Gen. (1970-81)

January 28th, 2009 · 2 Comments

In a boring, rainy and cold part of the city of The Hague, I spot this red hot exciting little Firebird. Now that is contrast! I would never crave a car like this, but I surely can appreciate them for how they look, what they stand for. Let us not be boring! Oh, and the […]

Ford Mustang GT (1987-90) convertible

March 28th, 2008 · 2 Comments

In the booming city of Delft, I spot myself one of the worst looking Mustangs I have even had the misfortune of running into. Surely, this is a badly pimped Escort or something like that? Nope, this really is a Mustang, a direct descendant of works of art like this and this… Incredible! The eighties […]

Ford Capri GT (Mk1)(?)

January 13th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Once famously promoted with the slogan ‘The car you always promised yourself‘, but I don’t recall promising myself a heavily pimped, overstated, orange two-seater European style Ford Capri coupé… Obviously, the current owner of this car is a dedicated Capri driver, and has spend much time and effort in creating a car that is both […]

Ford Mustang Coupé (1967-1968?)

January 9th, 2008 · 6 Comments

We haven’t seen a car on Coolhaven for a while now, so let’s go back to my lovely neighborhood. Fellow author Waizfisz is in the market for a nice first generation Ford Mustang, so you would expect that he would be posting American muscle cars here all the time. However, he seems to be enjoying […]

Dodge Charger SRT-8

December 27th, 2007 · No Comments

Right before Christmas, somebody decided to go gift shopping in his 6.1 liter Hemi V8 rear-wheel drive Dodge Charger SRT-8. Maybe he was in a hurry 😉 The pictures aren’t that great, the Charger was, well, charging away while I was bravely peddling along on my little bike 🙂 I don’t really fancy the modern […]

Another Ford Mustang Coupé (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, […]

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 […]

Ford Mustang 1971-73

August 21st, 2007 · 1 Comment

I spotted this Ford Mustang while running some errands in the city. Since Lex is a Mustang fan, I shot some pictures of this American muscle car. It was a really noisy car, and the back tires are huge! I have no info on the year of built or anything, so all specs are appreciated! […]
