The last time I went on a computer gaming date to a friend, I probably was eleven. Now, twenty years later, I am off to do some Wii with a friend again šŸ™‚ And on the way, I spot some nice cars, so quite a fun afternoon for me šŸ˜‰ First, the impressive Alfa Romeo […]

Ford Taunus 20M (1967)

December 2nd, 2007 · No Comments

As promised when I posted the Taunus XL, I had to dig up the old pictures of the Ford Taunus 20M which was spotted before. And it is a good thing, because this is quite a nice car. I am especially fond of the front of the car, the grille is just brilliant! It is […]

Triumph Herald (1200?) (1964-ish)

November 26th, 2007 · 3 Comments

To me, Triumph is all about nice little convertible sports cars from the sixties and the seventies. The days before roll bars, airbags, power steering and all that nonsense šŸ˜‰ that interferes with pleasant motoring. Obviously, this is romantically a very nice thing to cling to, but in real life it is… well, nonsense. However, […]

Rover P4 100 (1960-1962)

November 7th, 2007 · No Comments

How about another nice old Rover? There are several things that I absolutely dig with oldies, one of them is white walled tyres, another thing I really fancy is a well-done two tone paint job. It is seldom that a modern car can pull it off, but with the oldies everything appears to be just […]
