Porsche 911 t Targa (late seventies, eighties?)

March 5th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Time for some pictures of a somewhat beat up old Porsche 911 Targa. Although it is in need of some serious body work, you can still see the beautiful car lurking inside the carcass there somewhere 🙂 Damn, I really like a Porsche from this generation! It’s the car I was looking at from the […]

Triumph TR4 (1961-1965)

March 2nd, 2008 · 1 Comment

I spot myself a TR6 quite regularly, but for some reason I seldom spot a TR4. And when I do… I am driving, and it is a pain taking some nice pictures when you are trying not to die at the same time. Kinda breaks your focus and concentration on taking the best pictures, doesn’t […]

Triumph Herald 1200 Mk2

January 17th, 2008 · 2 Comments

As old Triumph’s go, this certainly is a well-kept looker! It has a very nice paint job in two-tone red and white, see if you can spot the differences with this Herald… 😉 I wonder what it is like to drive one of these little old cars, but for now, I can enjoy myself by […]

Jensen GT (1975-1976)

December 31st, 2007 · 3 Comments

I have been on the look-out for a Jensen Interceptor for quite a while now. I am not quite sure why, probably just because the name sounds exciting and vintage. I have never watched the series The Saint, so that can’t be it 😉 A couple of months ago a Jensen passed me by on […]

Chevrolet Impala

December 21st, 2007 · 4 Comments

Maybe the Cadillac of two posts before was a bit to ‘young’ for Waizfisz, this Impala sure must tickle his fancy. The pictures are a bit lousy, but it is rather difficult to shoot pictures of such a large car, while driving next to it… I don’t know why, but I kinda like this car! […]

Chevvie and Oldsmobile mega-post

November 5th, 2007 · 1 Comment

How about a combined posting of some vintage American muscle? I never get around to post them all here separately, not in the least because I have quite some research to do on these cars. I am not really up to spec with seventies American whales, pardon, cars. Let’s start with a car that is […]

Fiat 600/Seicento Multipla (1960’s)

November 1st, 2007 · 6 Comments

Now with cars like these parked in my neighborhood, I have no problems moving! Will you look at this car! Isn’t this a brilliant people mover?! Confound Fiat to hell for reusing the Multipla name on one of the most agonizing eye-sores ever designed by the car manufacturing industry, the modern Fiat Multipla! Will you […]

Toyota Celica LT 1600 (1970-77)

October 27th, 2007 · 4 Comments

Granted, this isn’t the most exiting vintage Japanese car you can spot, but it is a big step in the correct direction! This Celica was not in the top 10 of most wanted spots in my little black book, but it is close enough to really excite me. I seldom see a really old Asian […]
