I have a soft spot for this car, and I remember drawing it many times back when it was released back in 1984. It was a unique car that I read about in the March 1984 issue of Popular Mechanics. Unique in that it had a plastic shell as a body, instead of steel.This one is a shiny red 1985 Pontiac Fiero 2M6 found on the streets of Cabbagetown in Toronto. I watched the ... Check out this car!

I've seen one of these before, a gorgeous red Jaguar E-Type 4.2 (aka Jaguar XK-E). Last time, I chased it down the street in London England but could only get some shots from behind.

When walking back to my apartment in Rovinj Croatia I bumped into this red Renault 4 GTL parked in the shade on a hot sunny day.This car was actually introduced to compete with the Citroën 2CV which was my last post. In total, 8 million versions were produced between the years 1961-1992. It was well liked due to its spacious design, and is considered by some to be the ... Check out this car!
Here is the first car I took a picture of during my 7 months in Europe, a red 1970s Citroën 2CV found in Lisbon Portugal, the first stop of over 45 spots visited in total during the adventure.I love that roll out canvas sunroof, and the parking style. I almost feel like this car was parked perhaps before a wild night out on the town and forgotten.2CV ... Check out this car!
The last 3 cars that I photographed in Amsterdam just happened to be Volvos. This is one of them, a red Volvo 123 GT Amazon that was produced between the years of 1967-1970.What a cool looking car, so different than the typical boxy Volvo look that would emerge in the 1970s.Look at all that chrome. Chrome looks so good when it frames the windows like that. It makes ... Check out this car!

Now this is one wild looking ride, a 1970 Ford Transit Mark I van found parked in the streets of Paris.While taking photos of this vehicle, I was approached by an individual whom was the friend of the owner. Over a telephone call, I got a few details about the van. Indeed, it is a 1970 model, and originally came from Switzerland. It was also apparently used in a recent ... Check out this car!
