  1. That Europa and the Saab Turbo with those dished three spoke wheels keep growing on me every day.

    I think I saw another exact Mi16 like the one in today’s pics in San Francisco once in 2012. I wonder if it’s the same. It was clearly imported, not federalized, like the one we see here.

    • The Peugeot 405 Mi16 in the pics was my car at the time these photgraphs were taken in May 2011. These were shots taken by Automobile Magazine for the October 2011 issue (Upshift: “Last Tango from Paris” Jason Camissa). The shoot location was the roof of the Stockton and Sutter Garage in downtown San Francisco.

      I sold this car last summer (July 2013) to a guy in Pasadena who is driving it there. Now I drive and am extremely happy with my 1992 Peugeot 605 SV 24 (in the same emeraude vert color). Until it turns 25, I’ll register and insure it in British Columbia, solving the US legal issue. I’ll do the same with a Citroen XM Pallas 24 later this summer.

  2. That BMW M3 SWB! So cool. I have seen some of these on that Lebanon thread on R3vlimited. (part 2 link, both parts are worth a look):

    I also love the shots with the Benzo and 325is together.

  3. Always appreciate a Scirocco 16V photo in the mix – especially surrounded by such great automotive neighbors. Further down, sticking with the red car theme perhaps, another reminder how right Lotus got the Esprit.

  4. Like the Alfa Spider photos!

  5. That W108 AMG thing is just so awesome – you don’t understand how badly I want to build a tribute/street version of that car – complete with deleted bumpers and fog lights everywhere. No LS1 power please, find something OE – maybe a C43 AMG V8 engine mated to a 5-speed dogleg from a Cossie. Anything newer comes with so many electronic nannies that the swap would need a PhD in EE.

  6. It’s really cool seeing the ship I was on in a photo on this awesome site! I wonder what the story was behind it
