Lancia Gamma Berlina (fastback)

July 12th, 2009 · 4 Comments

To my knowledge I have never seen a car like this one before. Whether or not that is a good thing is for you to decide. Whether or not it is true remains to be seen… These cars frequented the streets when I was a boy so chances are that some have been on my […]

Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano

May 27th, 2008 · No Comments

Ah… now this is a fast car I can appreciate! Unfortunately, my lease contract won’t cover the expenses, otherwise this would have been my car šŸ˜‰ I am very fond of the lines on this super car, and it is said it drives severely fast as well. The company claims a top speed in excess […]

Lancia Flaminia CoupƩ

April 17th, 2008 · 1 Comment

The last spots all weren’t from Coolhaven. Moving away, I know that Coolhaven spots will get rarer and rarer, so I am happy to see that this nice Italian truly exclusive and unique car puts up to the curb this last sunny Saturday. The Flaminia is quite a rare car to spot in the Netherlands, […]

Another Peugeot 404

April 5th, 2008 · No Comments

I do seem to run into these nice cars quite often, but hey, who cares. They look nice, and taking a few pictures is easy enough. Enjoy. The Peugeot 404 was a mid-sized car produced from 1960 to 1988. This was the most successful of several contemporary cars whose body style, designed by Battista ā€˜Pininā€™ […]

Peugeot 504 Cabriolet

February 10th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Although I currently drive a Peugeot, I certainly don’t appreciate all Peugeots. However, with this sleek and smart cabrio, I spot myself a car I really like. Not surprisingly, it has a Pininfarina badge on the side… Now, don’t get me wrong. This is a Peugeot 504, and not a very exciting car. A relatively […]

Maserati Quattroporte (twice) V

December 17th, 2007 · No Comments

Maserati designs nice cars, and its four door sedan is no exception. Why you don’t see these cars more often is beyond me, apparently everybody wants do drive a Mercedes at some point of their career? Oh well, it is a lovely car, and for a sporty fast car, even practical! All and all a […]

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 […]

Peugeot 404

November 21st, 2007 · 3 Comments

Close to were I spotted the Celica LT, I run into this nice classic Peugeot 404. This Pininfarina designed sedan was enormously robust, and I would say, lovely designed. And since there are nearly 2 million produced between 1960 and 1975 alone… I like a car like this, it is in mint condition, and the […]
