Chrysler Newport – Third Gen. (1961-1964)

August 8th, 2009 · No Comments

Some cars just speak to you, and this is one of those cars. Normally, the big American boats mainly look kinda ridiculous in my eyes, but this Newport is nice. Obviously it is the small car in the Chrysler range of the time… that explains something. It is always amazing to see the specs on […]

Ford Galaxie 500 XL Convertible (1960-1964)

October 6th, 2008 · 1 Comment

How about a nice big boat of a Ford to get things started here again? And two door convertibles don’t easily become much bigger than this white whale… What can I say about a big gassguzzling V8 monster like this? Well,very little, I don’t know these cars at all! Wikipedia has a nice page about […]

Audi R8 (finally…)

July 13th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Well, this nice fast Audi nowadays has little spotting-value, I am afraid. They aren’t that hard to run into, apparently. For reasons unknown to me however, I never saw one! So, a year to late, finally: the sporty Audi! Oh well, gave me a chance to do some photoshopping šŸ˜‰

Jensen Interceptor MkIII (1971-1976)

March 18th, 2008 · 1 Comment

On my honeymoon, I finally spot the car I have been hoping to spot since the start of this blog: the Jensen Interceptor! And why did I want to spot this car so badly? Is it the looks? The performance? Am I a huge The Saint fan? Nope… I really dig the name! Imagine standing […]

Mercury Marquis Colony Park (1973-1978)

February 24th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Feast your eyes out on this very, very long Mercury from car times long gone. This third generation whale of an American station wagon is in not all that swell a condition, but what it lacks in condition, it certainly makes up in length! This car has no doubt a very nice V8 engine under […]

BMW 645ci (E63) – 2004

January 27th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Well, normally I don’t stop to take pictures of these cars, but this particular one had such nice alloy shoes he immediately draws your attention. When a BMW 645 is parked, you tend not to notice the nice 4.4 liter V8, and start looking at the details. And since lots of you consider pictures of […]

Ford Mustang CoupƩ (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 […]
