I am a car nut… I’ve loved sports and racing cars since I was a tween and yanked from the country to the suburbs. Later in life I was in the paddock at Lime Rock a lot snappin’ pics. Club driver’s schools and a couple of Skip Barber races and MGs and Alfas and Simcas and Dubs and Datsuns and Bimmers have gone and given me certain perspectives on things. Along with the sidekicks by Buick, Chevy, Ford, Fiat and Mazda.
Like a Boss.
To think that this jewel, probably my very favorite car, is on the same chassis as the car I had… oo !
what a delicious Aston! Whoa.
God, can you imagine?
Ooo Alfa 33 !
Don’t see any of these…no idea why.
Alfa Romeo 2000 Touring Sprint
[Proper credits as found, usually at my tumblr blog, are coming. It is my intent to catch up with all these pages. Bear with me.]
Was thrilled to build a website in 2012 for Robert Mittenmaier, a great guy, a good friend and a fabulous painter of exotic vehicles, especially Ferraris. Check out his work, it’s good. Signore Enzo Ferrari himself requested the use of one of Bob’s paintings in his autobiography Piloti, Che Gente. No, really, he did. Here’s a painting… 🙂
And just recently I was asked by Jill Reger, a fine artist to check out her work. I would think it’s due to my involvement with the Connecticut BMW club since she sent the Bimmer collage below but otherwise it might be due to my tumblr. Anyway I did look and it is really nice work by a lady with a very good eye. Below is the pic and the site is www.jillreger.com.
Being a lover of the weird there has always been an affinity for those exceptionally odd conveyances that are sometimes spotted and photographed. As such, I thought it a good sanity-saver to give them a page where they can mingle with the sportscars. Enjoy!
Here are some coolwagens to get started…
I am a fanatical freak for Stangs – especially if they are Shelbys.
I love stuff like this. Brace yourselves.
The world could really use this car now. Yes sirree.
I had a Simca 1204 just like this!
I am at a loss :_(
Look at how tiny this thing is!
Sweet M1, made by Lamborghini.
I’m loving it.
Astons always rule.
Nice rally Golf.
See now, that’s what I’m talkin’ about.
This is a Sbarro. I don’t think they made many.
The new Lagonda Taraf.
I think that the tradition of resurrecting extinct car marques is a good thing and I am glad that Aston Martin is bringing Lagonda back. They had always been intimately related—and for such a long time. So yay and pip pip!
This thing looks the business. Hopefully it costs less than my house.
Not so common, even around here.
