Thank you Diplomat,

How did i get the pics?

Maybe because I'm a  car nut since I was a kid, maybe because I work in advertising and we get the habit of work fast and at last as I d'ont give any attention to futebol so I may have a little more availability for this hobby, maybe.

Spotted this morning. Looks brand new. Apparently there is someone in France who specialises in restoring them and kitting them out for businesses. I have seen a few being used as burger wagons and the like, but this was for a vintner and it looked fab.

Fresh catch

Due to busines and to a friens mariage, I have been out of town for a few days and there are some snaps from that period...

Spotted at Oporto seaside suburbia...

 

A nice VW Karmman Ghia...

 

A mint Mercedes Pagoda

 

A Triumph TR3...

 

An Jaguar XK, maybe a 150...

 

At Oporto surburbia...

A Ford Taunus 12m Super....

... and a Opel 1604 S, with some nice period extras...

Anorak fact;

Those cars never had the "Ascona" model name here as "As"  "cona" in portuguese hardcore street lexicon means "The" Pussy" 

 

Back to seaside... two 4x4s, 

A portuguese UMM from the early series...

 

 

... and a Land Rover ( S2 ..?) looking as going out of a hibernation period...

 

Spotted at Oporto center, a Fiat 1500...

... and a late series Jaguar XJS..

Fresh catch.

From the séries "My cell phone got an eye", an early Citroen CX Pallas "5 Velocidades" (five speed )in a  delicious period colour, spotted these days at Lisbon...

 

The car have a police plastic "keep off" band around, as the area was being cleaned to allow underground work. Hope the owner arrive before they tow it away.

A worker is allready start to see how to do it on a mint R12 parked in the same area...
