Cool Cars - 1960's
I was very surprised to see a Ford Mustang Fastback in Budapest, and quite frankly I was also surprised to see this black 1965 Ford Mustang Coupe in Paris. The pony cars just seem out of place in the continent where Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Fiats, or Citroën are the norm. However, this has been a super popular car over the years, and so we find it overseas.This was a tricky ... Check out this car!

After 7+ months exploring Europe, and spending time in 14 countries in 45 locations...perhaps this car found in London at the end of the journey was saving the best for last!What an incredible classic car, the Mercedes-Benz 220 S in a beautiful shade of baby blue.I can't believe how natural and striking it looks parked outside this white building. This is precisely why ... Check out this car!
Berlin is such a fantastic city in the summertime. There are so many different neighbourhoods to explore, and that is exactly what I did for almost a month. I found some amazing endangered cars.Sometimes it is tricky to identify older cars because the identifiers get chiselled off.Here is a really unique car that I found one evening while exploring the city. But what ... Check out this car!

I was driving on the island of Lefkada in Greece in the narrow streets of small hill town Kalamitsi, and this car caught my attention quickly.Nicely backed in to its driveway, and ready to go, a 1969 Ford Capri! It's a good looking 2 door fastback coupe.Ford's intention with the Capri was to reproduce the success of the Mustang seen in North America, but in Europe. ... Check out this car!
This was an absolutely stunning car that I came across in Budapest...a red 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback!I don't think I have ever seen this model in real life, and it was a shocker to see it on the streets of Budapest of all places. Such a good looking muscle car. Perhaps this was even more of a surprise than it was to find the 1968 Lincoln Continental in Berlin. Tough to ... Check out this car!
Like Berlin, Prague was also a hotbed of endangered cars to take photographs. This is a very cool sporty number that was produced between the years 1964-1973, the Fiat 850. This car appears to be a 1968 model, and is in incredible looking condition. I am positive it has a very proud owner, more about that later. For now, lets take a look at a photo.The front end of ...

Older BMW's are rare finds. This is a BMW 1800, likely a 1967 or 1968 model when they changed the front grill area. Older models had round headlights, whereas here we have rectangular headlights. Production of this model ended in 1971.This car is part of the "New Class" series, a line of compact coupes and sedans produced between 1962 and 1977.BMW's were always ... Check out this car!
