Fresh catch,

A cat in the sunday trafic, spotted today at Lisbon...

 

...and my favorite Mini, even if i don't like the wheels (I prefer Rostyles..), the body extentions and even if the extra lights are nice, something more 70's will suit the car style better...

Our advertising director Ben Guynan spotted this Scimitar this morning, but he is far too busy making money to bung it up here himself!

Fresh catch,

A Vw Type 1 1302  spotted last saturday at Lisbon seaside...

 

...and a pristine Renaul Dauphine Gordini, spotted today at Oporto...

The car was driven by Carlos Barquinha, a well know classic car enthusiast and classic car dealer from Oporto. 

Even if i'm not his target client, he is a very nice guy and we allways change a few words about cars.

Maybe it will be on display at  Automobilia de Aveiro the next week-end.

Automobilia is the biggest swapmeet/classic car fair in Portugal.

Nuno, do you know that urban legend about a warehouse full of classic cars "discovered" a few years back somewhere in Portugal? Do you have any information about this story and what happened to those cars?
