  Triumph TR4

Another Italianised Briton by Michelotti, like the Stag or the 2000. Beautiful lines in those cars.

  Saab 96 in the night

I don't know if this is a 93,95 or 96 ...but it's simply beautiful. This Swedish car sitting outside an Argentinian restaurant in London.

  Peugeot 504 Coupé

The Pininfarina approach to the French myth.

C'est du joli!

  Austin Van

I'm not quite sure whether this is the A55 Van or some relative. Can you shed any light on the subject?

  BMW 3.0 CSI (1974)

Beautiful coupé on the Islington streets. To me, car beauty doesn't go much further than this. The owner appeared while I was taking the pictures and told me that the car was made in 1974, just like me. Wikipedia knows something about the 3.0 and its relatives

  Peugeot 204 cabriolet

Beautiful little French car. The first Peugeot to have disc brakes, amazing.

  Austin Maxi

Another British classic from the mind of Sir Alec Issigonis just like the Morris Minor 1000 or the Mini.
I wonder what the passer-by thinks about the Maxi, well she's probably more interested in the ice cream.

  Ford Pilot V8

Beautiful, the first large postwar Ford. Things you find on the streets of London.

  Living Scimitar

I already posted a Scimitar GTE back in september last year. But this one is more alive, I love the colour, the silhouette and the January light.
  LDV Milkvan

Milkman van of the 21st century. New customers always welcome.

  Volvo 121

Relatively easy to be spotted in London. I specially like the estate version. Here by the Pub on the park. This one, from the early 60's, was fitted with the famous B18 motor.

  Saab 99

Lovely Swedish silhouette from the late sixties. When cars still had a personality on their own.

  Mercedes Benz 220

First produced in the late fifties, this was one of the first cars to be engineered with a great concern about safety. A lovely fintail desing on the Hackney night.

  Ferrari 308

A very familiar car from the late 70's. Magnum (Tom Selleck) drove this car!

  Rover 3500 V8

  Nissan Pao

Another lovely funny Nissan from the late 80's, somehow from the same breed as the Nissan Figaro.
THE IDEA: After some months living in London and seeing some of the most unbelievable cars and bizarre things-on-wheels, I have finally decided to keep track of this unique heritage. Don't forget to check the archive for surprises.

But what´s going on in London?
