Oh well, there is always room for another TR6. I like the little sports cars, they are nice to look at. Specs and info in the earlier posts. Enjoy!

Jensen Interceptor Mk III cabriolet

August 9th, 2008 · No Comments

What better car to re-kick off with than one of my all time favourites, the Jensen Interceptor? I have posted one before, but that was the closed body version. And a rather worn down one as well, to be frank. This beauty of a car is spotted on a sunny day at the beach at […]

Volvo Duett P210

September 21st, 2007 · 2 Comments

I was hoping to see something modern and fast today, but ran into this nice Volvo Duett instead. Oh well, it is a nice car so why not? This P210 Volvo was built between 1953 and 1969, but since it does not have a split windscreen, I reckon it isn’t an early model. It is […]
