Fresh catch.

A CX spotted today in Lisbon. Probably not a petrol version, very rare here (we are a diesel nation...) even when new...

Love the CX Nuno.

I was in Zandvoort 29th & 30th Sept for the State of Art GP Classic and National Oldtimer Festival. I've got loads of photos from the event but I saw this lovely Bertone Volvo in the town itself when I went out for a few beers on the Sat evening. It was just parked up on a driveway and appeared to be in regular use. I thought the photo wasn't too shabby given it was taken on a mobile phone, and after a good few beers.

Thanks Benz,

 

I love those Volvos Tank/Coupé. I have been at Zandvoort twice and as all around Netherlands, we can see a lot of classics/youngtimers on daily use...

Yep. I too always had a perverse admiration for the Volvo 262C, but it seems not everyone shares our interest. Here is one just down the road from Martin Towers that has been neglected in this driveway for all of the nine years I have been here.

Looks too far gone to save too.

Back on topic!

Fresh catch from Lisbon docs...

 

By the number plates it is a recent import. Those Espaces was never sold here and the majority of the few ones with portuguese plates are diesels (what else...).

This one is a rare petrol engined version. looking to be in good original condition...

Two small cars spotted at Lisbon these days.

Fiat 126 and Honda N600, both have 2 cilinders aircolled engines with similar capacity, both was on the market in 1972, but they couldn't be more different
