    I’ve shot a lot of cars for this site, and a large number of those have been American cars strewn around the Finnish small-town landscape. Again, wintertime snow humps are receding, and the stateside-born metal is revealed, either by people bringing out their priced V8 behemoths or the melting snow just showing you what it […]

    As we were driving along towards Maastricht from the point where the three countries, the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany meet, I did a double take from the back seat of the black turbodiesel Audi A4 in which we were riding. “Hey, a CX! And an old Skoda! Should we turn around and check them out?” […]

      It’s one of my favourite cars, the 928. The 928 S4, with the extra roundedness of the nose cone was my favourite favourite, and in my opinion one of the prettiest cars ever to issue from between Stuttgart factory gates. I would dearly love one; but I know that ownership would likely be an […]

    There is a small gravel lot alongside the main road I take to work every day; there are often one or two cars sitting there for sale. Usually, they’re nothing special, but when I saw this great white beast posing for traffic this morning, I knew I was bound to stop and get some pictures. […]

    I shot this for-sale feline around the same time as the outside-kept collection of Saabs. While I haven’t got the faintest idea if the owner of the Saabs is willing to let them go, this blue 1991 Jaguar Sovereign is being advertised for sale by the caravan dealer. By the looks of things, the Jaguar […]

    The Buick wasn’t the only old American car we saw in Amsterdam. No sir-ee, this 1985 Mercury Grand Marquis completely caught our eyes and captured our minds. What can it be doing in Amsterdam – especially in such flawless condition? It was super clean, ridiculously nice. After an exhausting but touching three-hour WWII tour all […]

    In case you looked at the Buick photos closely, you might’ve seen a Saab next to it. That’s only half the truth, as there were two classic-shape Saab 900:s there – a dark blue convertible and a grey turbo coupe. They seem to be enthusiast cars, not least due to the plate holders.

    Amsterdam isn’t just a haven for old European cars. Quite the contrary, as this 1973 Buick Regal Landau shows. We saw it on our way towards the Jordaan area, after having a quick cup of coffee and a croissant at a nice little cafe on Utrechtstraat. Judging by the Regal’s appearance, the town’s narrow streets are […]

    Beautiful Italian design, that’s what this is. Especially in dark green. The Sport Wagon version of the later Nuova incarnation of the Alfa Romeo Alfa 33 gives the car a handier amount of interior space, while maintaining the classy glasshouse style. “Remember to say I hated it.” Sure, Blake.

    I’m not going to lie, this banana yellow Citroën DS Safari (or Break, or Wagon, or Estate) was one of my favourite sightings in Amsterdam. Thanks to the colour, it was easily spotted on the canal side, as we were walking in the fairly freezing wind towards the Hermitage. The Hermitage houses the van Gogh […]
