Thanks Chris and Mario for the kind words.

You two seems to be nice people but I just get tired by a few reasons,

I get tired, by the the low level of real contributors and this is a surprise as CSC is world class magazine. If we except me and you two, the remains are simple post contributors with small contents to share and a few rolysomething type caracthers, walking around  in hanger while making lists about what is wrong (most of the cases) and what is right...

I also get tired about rolysomething  type caracthers.

Finally i send 3 times to CSC team, a story about the Oporto mayor who uses a Mercedes w108 as a official car. I sent the story and photos and ask if they find interest for the printed magazine in first hand. If not I will post the story here. Simple as that, but no anwser at all, so I ask myself what I'm doing here

 

Anyway (motoring...) life goes on...

Still driving my cars every day, even if the Scirocco came out for one or two days of hardwork...

...now the Audi Coupé is on daily duty around town...

School run..

End of the day surfing...

...or week-end touring across the country...

I still buying CSC...

 

My monthly Running Report stills very popular on portuguese classic car web forum....

 

Now and then I go to  informal petrolhead or classic meetings,,,,

 

My friends and family still send me photos from over the world. My brother spott this R16 at CaboVerde Islands a few weeks ago and he bet with his girlfriend that I will identify the model...

(he wins...)

 

I still shotting anything with wheels...

 

 

or without...

even at my work, sometimes professional projects coincide with my hobbys...

 

Finally this guy wins the elections and since today is the Oporto Mayor...

 

 

And I see at the tv news, the other mayor who can't compete again  after 3 wins in a row, leave the town gov. building in the w108...

Thanks

Totally agree Nuno,

I have not been around for a while too, it got to where I was talking to myself on here so I gave up.  There have been more trolls and spammers than genuine posters with something to say.  Maybe we can get it going again, but it needs more than just you, me and Mario.

Thanks Chris. I was
confused by the badge. Still not sure where it came from. Also if
you look closely at the body work its very similar to the Hudson Jet.
The only difference is the grill which means it is a Opel Olympia
Rekord.

 

Ok so after success
with that one. How about this one. What is the green car parked to the
right of the 1954 Oldsmobile 88? I thought it looked like a
studabaker but its not. Any ideas?

That is a trio of '55s.  The Oldsmobile is a '55 not a '54; I know, I had one years ago in London.  The one in the middle is a '55 Dodge, probably a Royal Lancer model, and of course the back end of a '55 Chev on the right.  It is typical of the old cars in Cuba to have some mix and match and wrong parts added so you have to be a bit flexible with identifying specific models, but apart from the top front grille moulding missing from the Olds' these three look better than most.

Hi,

Making a right turn off Islington Upper Street, so hands full as a Powder Blue Gordon Keeble burbled up behind me and passed on the left heading up to Highbury Corner. No time for a snap as hands full.

Powder blue so… 22? or 34? seemed to have Italian plates maybe?

Anyway a joy to see - only my second.
