Dodge Dart, 5th gen. (1970-76)

September 7th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Somebody has been busy with this car. Some strange striping, a vinyl roof and bonnet, strange.. Oh well, it is a not too spectacular Dodge Dart, let’s just look at it and move on šŸ™‚ The pictures were taken in the rain, so they aren’t really good. Wikipedia has a very complete page on the […]

Cadillac Fleetwood limousine (early seventies?)

August 11th, 2008 · No Comments

Well, the Fleetwood cars are actually quite nice, and the Fleetwood car body building company is interesting reading if it is all new to you.

Ford Thunderbird ‘Flair Bird’ hardtop coupĆ© (1964)

I have nothing interesting to say about the car, besides the fact that it was regarded very poorly […]

Back to Coolhaven with this boat of a car. A big and ugly Cadillac: I have no interesting facts about this car, and frankly I can’t be bothered to look ‘m up šŸ˜‰ I have a back log of almost a dozen great cars now, so I am quite busy Googling, searching and Photoshopping them […]

Opel Ascona A

July 30th, 2007 · No Comments

While walking to the supermarket, I ran into this rustbucket, and I just had to take some pictures. This old Ascona brings back memories of football trips on backseats of your teammates fathers, on rainy saturday mornings… This one’s severely beaten, as the pictures show. Got to love those rims, though šŸ˜‰ This is actually […]
