|My Beloved Vehicles|
Find here some pictures, technical details and comments pertaining to some (most) of the motor vehicles I either own or used to own in the past. While I am not a car freak it is probably true that vehicles tell something about their owners. Unfortunately, I acquired most of my own vehicles by accident or out of need and never really had much choice. Nevertheless, people usually develop some emotional relationship with their mobile companions over time and this is my main motive for remembering them. The result is really a strange mixture of vehicles with very different characters (if any) ...
The General Problem Solver.
The "Muscle Cat".
Doupe de Ville (1970)
An easy chair from here to there...
Solid and very unspectacular.
"failed to improve upon the model it was intended to replace ..."
Made for the trans-continental ride.
175, 250 motorcycles
Not as slow as they may look.
Great looks but poor performance.
Amazing power combined with wicked handling.
California II (1976)
Simple and reliable, the ultimate cruiser.
Fantastic vehicles that never made it into my garage.
