Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0, one of 600 made.
1995 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII, apparently customized by a local tuner.
I’m an orange moon.
I’m brighter than before
Brighter than ever before
I’m an orange moon and I shine so bright
(Erykah Badu – Orange Moon)
Very bright and very orange 1975 BMW 316 (E 21). The first 3-series!
1955 Opel Olympia Rekord Caravan.
This vehicle had a “special” aura. A distinctive smell of heavy fuel and lube oil surrounding it, a body covered by thick layers and layers of patina, moss and branches, this post-war Opel (a General Motors spin-off) was … frightening. Even more so, because it appeared to be operational.
The huge “glass dome” rear window might seem a bit awkward today. In the 80’s, this coachwork design plus stowable rear seats made Porsche’s 924 the fastest way to transport anything larger than, let’s say, your golf bag.
Phoenix from the ashes? 1980 Pontiac Phoenix LJ coupé.
1967 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL.
Beautifull example of the Pagoda and extras available for the W 113 in the late 60s. This one has it all: automatic drive, hardtop, leather interior, headrests, phone interface and fond seats that were part of a configuration called “California”.
You don’t have to be a marketing genius to guess where most SLs have been sold. This is a European version, though.
1989 Toyota Supra Mk II.
Two things worth mentioning here: perfectly fitting 80s rims by alloy wheel specialist Borbet and the unusual red-orange engine hood emblem, later replaced by the Toyota Logo in the last revision.
1969 Zündapp C 50 Sport.
Like many other German motorcycle companys, Zündapp went backrupt in the 70s when much higher taxes for small-engined bikes were introduced. Most young customers couldn’t afford them anymore.
The owner of this beautiful C 50 Sport had enough cash left for some factory extras: leg shield, luggage rack … but he forgot the second white wall tire.
9 out of 10 points.
1974 Alfa Romeo Nuova Super 1300, the classic Giulia re-release from the mid-seventies.
Back in the day, when Italian administrations lasted longer than just 6 months.
1962 Porsche 356 S coupé.
One rare and pristine example of German engineering finally premiering on this blog!
This is a late 356 B 1600 (T 6 bodytype), as you can tell by the gas filler trap on the right front fender, twin-grille in the back and an air intake at the base of the windshield.
1987 Jeep Wrangler XJ with custom coach work, chrome bumpers, rims and more. The rugged, impressive look outside is foiled by fine leather interiors, a custom wooden steering wheel and a kids seat in the back.
There can’t be a more exiting way for a little boy to be chauffeured.
Berlin’s famous Berghain night club is well known for quality electronic music and a divers crowd of globetrotters, jet-setters, tourists & locals, tastefully mixed like German stew.
Some locals take it literally and reside right next to the location – in this rare 1972 MAN F 7 caravan truck with roof conversion, two solar panels and even a bike for the kids. Seen behind Berghain.
Home sweet home.
