Wheels Of The Week: 1975 Wolseley Saloon 18-22

Brown is a difficult colour, whilst it might seem a good option for a pair of trousers, it’s frowned upon for most other applications, let’s face it dark oak cupboards and brown caravans are just not ‘it’ anymore. As one of the archetypal 1970s colours, beside orange and chartreuse ‘bathtub’ green, though, it kind of […]

Wheels Of The Week: 1963 Mini Van

We realised earlier we never actually featured a Mini on these pages, and honestly it’s quite a mystery how we never managed to do so. Plenty of Minis about of course, well, to make up we found a rather special one; a Mini Van. Not necessarily special in the sense of rare in numbers built, […]

Wheels Of The Week: 1978 Citroën GS Estate C-Matic

We keep on the project car trail for this week with this Citroën GS Estate. It looks a rather, err, custardy affair coming with a (now mostly matte) beige exterior, sagging hydropneumatic suspension and Citroën’s often slow (yet innovative) semi-automatic transmission. It comes at a cool price, though, the owner is asking £950. Why did […]

Wheels Of The Week: 1986 Lotus Excel

This time a car from Norfolk, a rather glamorous car to be precise. Now hold on, of course you might not relate Norfolk with the construction of high-end glamorous cars, but remember there’s is a small car manufacturer in headquartered in Hethel; Lotus. It’s a different kind of glamorous of course, not Bentley glamorous, not […]

Wheels Of The Week: 1972 Morris Marina 1.8 TC

Time to go back into time a bit, to the 1970s. Yes we all know it, that decade of great music and even greater trousers. Let’s stop for a moment in 1972, the year in which this week’s wheels of the week was built. In the year that Roxy Music revolutionised pop with ‘Virginia Plain’, […]

Wheels Of The Week: 1991 Lancia Delta Integrale 16v

After having featured a host of German cars in the last few weeks, let’s turn our attention to something rather more soulful. With other words let’s turn to something Italian. This week let’s have a look at this Lancia Delta Integrale 16v up for auction on Ebay. For a rather enormous starting price of £3750 […]

Wheels of the Week: 1972 Volvo 144 Hot Rod

Coming across this Volvo 144 on Ebay made us wonder if there was something wrong with the seller’s camera.  Mainly because the car is decidedly, err, flat? Reading the description it turns out this 1972 Volvo was subjected to some radical modifications in the past. Most obviously of course the fact that the roof was […]

Wheels of the Week: 1980 Saab 99 Turbo

As a petrolhead one tends to browse the web and sometimes, somehow, one tends to end up on pages that list cars for sale. Ebay is one such website of course, this time a red Saab 99 Turbo fell victim to the car prying eyes of yours truly. From 1980, the 99 features the desirable […]

Some trees, a field and 500 old cars

Once in a while one comes across stories about cars that are hard to believe. The story about a chap with 500 old cars in his backyard is exactly such a story. The story was true though, as reported a few months ago by Autoweek, an anonymous collector has been accumulating cars on his plot […]

5 rather expensive car fires..

So before we start, let’s just note that no-one was hurt in these incidents, that said, car fires are generally a traumatic affair for car enthusiasts. Seeing some gorgeous machine reduced to nothing but a heap of ash and deformed metal is a nightmare for us petrolheads (yet it is, undoubtedly, an absolute delight for […]
