This post finishes up my Amsterdam contributions, and puts together a string of photographed cars that I’ve only captured with one or two quick shots instead of more detailed photos.
The cars here range from old weirdness to newer hotness, so check it out.
This gloriously red Opel Manta was shot from the other side of the canal, as we were on a guided tour and I daren’t sneak on the other side of the canal to photograph the car. Thankfully, the zoom capabilities of my phone pulled through.
The 1986 car only has a 1.8-litre engine, so it’s not too snappy.
A classic Land Rover is always worth a shot.
The 340-series Volvo is one of the cars considered most Dutch. It was originally a DAF design, adopted under the wing of Volvo with small modifications. This 1984 340 has a 1.4 Renault engine under the hood.
An eta-engined BMW E28, with bottlecap wheels. It’s an automatic car from 1986.
A brown W123 Mercedes-Benz 250 from 1979. Noteworthy for being converted to run on LPG, says the plate info.
This 1982 230E runs on regular gasoline. Am I right in saying both of them have MB-Tex interiors?
Next to it, a run-off series BMW E30 316i touring Design Edition. Noteworthy for the special green colour and special cloth upholstery with sports seats, these late-model cars added just a little bit of early-1990s flair to the E30 series.
And the final sighting gets to be a Fisker Karma; the first one I’ve seen in the metal. And it’s even a brown one!
