As James posted his latest blog in praise of the first  generation Maserati Quattroporte I thought I would post these photos of a similar model. This one often turns up at local car shows and is super clean. Probably not the flashest wheels to catch the attention of a casual onlooker, although a few did notice the badge at least, but its understated looks just add to the cool methinks.

Fesh Catch,

Every Thursday some petrolheads get an informal meeting at Lisbon suburbia, as most of the cars are RWD, they call it "the RWD".

Its a diferent meeting from the Lisbon monthly sunday meeting by the river, with more race fans than classic fans and with some youngers with japanese steel. Some people go both and sometimes I got there and chat a little bit around cars, as I had done yesterday with mi friend Luis and his Toyota AE 68 ,  a model with a strong follow among young petrol heads, yesterday there are 3 of them.

Some snaps of classics taken before the rain show up...

(my Scirocco "FWD" is on the background)

Then the rain show up...

(The black AE86 between the Renault van and the Volvo its  Luis, "slant noose" version)
