That's gonna be one big-ass post, sit back and enjoy the load times:

An Opel Ascona. Sadly, these cars almost completely disappeared from the streets even before cash for clunkers came around.


The license plate..


Some Detroit steel slumbering in an underground lot, awaiting resurrection.


A Simca 1000, small, rear-engined, French.


"My other car is a Miata."


A gloriously used Opel Rekord. I refuse to call this a beater.


Matte black Audi Somethingsomething looks surprisingly shit.


Happy car is happy. And light blue.


190D Merc with custom hood ornament.


What Ayn Rand did not tell you is that when Atlas shrugged, he was replaced with cheap Italian labour.


A Ford Taunus in racing trim. The engine sounded agressive, too.



The RO-80 looked like a car from the late 80s and thus was quite a sensation when it debuted in 1967. It's wankel engine was advanced, as well. It featured IRS and disk brakes on all wheels, a semi-automatic gearbox(!!!) and power steering as standard. Sadly you know all how the story ended: The engine had massive reliability problems, and the necessary warranty repairs plus damaged reputation led to NSU's bankrupcy. Less than 40000 RO-80 were made.

Another visit to the classic car garage today:

This is a kit car. And it's also a classic car. It's a kit car from the early 80s based on a Ford Granada!



A La Salle-based custom car. Includes low rider jumping-capable air suspension.


And one for narf: A Skoda Octavia.

And a nice Bentley was parked behind it.

I think this guy got fed up with people calling it a Charger lol



I love it.


The exhaust totally ruins the stealth look



This is the reason why we can't lower our cars, they are everywhere






All the way from KSA to RAK:blink:, that must have been a fun journey

is that a real boat? or a trailer disguised as boat?


EDIT: the longer i look at it, the stupidier my question sounds. i'd like to see a men get in something like that without toppling over :lol:
i guess it's just a trailer :D
