Moving some Blue and Silver stuff for a friend, Part 1

A friend asked me to help retrieve a car from his dry storage facility. I said, "What Car?" and he said, "My Shelby KR500". "Count me in" I reply. The catch is the car is down in Palm Springs and we'll have to drive down in his Porsche. Oh well. It was cl

Maserati 4200GT.

I took at a Maserati coffee morning in Pimlico. Mine was the pale blue 3200GTA. A wonderful car, I can't remember why I sold it. I agree with you that they were a gentleman's GT rather than a road-going track day car. I thought that the deep green Gran Sp

Re Editions, Re interpretations, Re visitations... Some interesting examples.

We recently discussed the re interpretation of the Volvo P 1800 by Cyan or the modern alpine A 110. But it seems that is a new trend. Here are some examples which are with some discussions and thoughts. The 911 DLS by Singer is one of the most famous: Wha

Our mission in New Mexico was to join up for one of those old car rally events - no fancy timed things, this was just drive around and have a good time. Let me show you some of the participants and the scenery: here's an XK 150 which has a wider grille, b

A day on the track with the Alpine A 110.

I was invited by an Alpine Authorized Dealer to test the Alpine on the track. I already tested it on the small roads of Normandy, and on the highway, too, I had to go farther and have some fun on the track to test its limits, and to get some notions on ho

Sweet candies from the Sixties...

Some will say that the golden era for cars are the 40's and the 50's... I for one think it is the 60's. Here are some dream cars. Ok, you won't be surprised, the Volvo P 1800: The Jaguar E Type: The Porsche 356: The Ferrai Dino 246 GT: And... The Alpine A

(pic heavy) First track day since the pandemic

I managed to escape for a few hours to burn some rubber, hard to believe it's been 10 months since I last went but boy it felt good! I thought some of you may enjoy a few pics! Temperatures were in the low 20s Celsius with a wet track until mid afternoon

Some Ferrari Dino 246 GT superb photos.

Found on the net. I will gladly credit on request. I have something for these small coupés from the 60's. The " Dino " is probably one of the most sensual. At least one of my favorites. Best, Nicolas
