an Opel you won’t see in Europe.
I’d be very appreciative if you took me to work in a Lightning. Pick me up around 8:20am. I’ll also need to borrow it because my job involves driving a fair bit.
I have a weakness for full size sedans with steelies and dog dishes
Spotted a Talbot Matra Rancho a while back, one of possibly 5 in North America. Still baffled as to why it went to a Hyundai dealer of all places by flatbed.
Well spotted, yes an Opel Astra F in teal
Of course the mod edit calls it whining, instead of being more professional. Our over lords hate opposing opinions, unless of course my sarcasm meter is t working in which case, please overlook my stupidity.
owning a Gun ain’t a right, it’s a privilege just like driving a car is.
A few months ago I was engaged in a long comment thread with our Dutch friend Jobjoris when I made some kind of joke about forgotten cars. I can’t remember what it was in reference to, but the joke involved buying a Citroën LNA since that was a car I never think about and is pretty forgotten and unloved. Or, so I…
Not in America, we still get the V6.
The final stop on my incredible three day weekend of amazing automobiles in Europe with Oppokook Jobjoris was Autoworld in Brussels, Belgium. And it made for a surprisingly spectacular finish. Autoworld is housed in a gorgeous exhibition hall in the Parc du Cinquantenaire that was built in 1880 for a National…
The Miata is ready to go! Not painted but all of the body work is done so that’s nice at least. Time to drive 3000 miles across the country in 11 days. Looking forward to Friday at the Dragon. Tonight is a quick 6 hour drive to the start of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. I’ll try to update tonight with more…
Yeah, all the CPers here don’t seem to be looking much past the nameplate. The fact that this is a homologation special adds a lot.
The VR4 was basically a 4 door DSM Talon/Eclipse. It’s quite a bit more than lipstick.
Traded the M6 today for the below ride. The i8 lease is up soon. The Z3M is on a truck out to SF and will likely be listed on BAT this spring (after I’ve had a last chance to drive it and also make sure it’s in tip-top shape). The LX450 needs a head gasket and its value won’t support that so it is going to - um, a…
Using AMG and M was a bit hyperbolic, I admit. GTI was a better but still not perfect comparison.
My uncle in 1994 let me steer a Lada 2101 like the one below at he age of 4 around the village where I used to live:
NOVEL AND PICTURE TIME! :D Excuse the crummy pics though, I only had my phone and the sun was low, so lots of glare...
Now, I’ve been to junkyards before, but the last time was when I was in High School way back around 2003-2004...long ago, when I was a naive car-lover and a friend and I were looking for a factory rear…
We had three cars when I got my license.
