The Koenigsegg Regera Is A Lot More Interesting Than Kim Kardashian’s Butt

They said that Kim Kardashian’s champagne butt photo broke the internet a few months ago. By rights, the Koenigsegg Regera should split the darn thing in two. The internet, that is. It won’t, because the Swedes aren’t like that. But it should. I’m still waiting for a proper press release, but the first stories about … Continue reading “The Koenigsegg Regera Is A Lot More Interesting Than Kim Kardashian’s Butt”

It’s the first Sunday of the month and normally that means Classics By The Beach. This month, however, it meant the annual Shannons car show held at Rosny Park, just down the hill from home. Fine conditions early were tempered by light showers in the early afternoon. There was a great turnout, nonetheless. I missed … Continue reading “Shannons Car Show – March 2015”

There have been some speculations, rumours, tall stories and fables going around. They question whether [Mahindra] are still in the game negotiating for Saab, or whether there is some ‘old lover’ involved in the scenario. A story even came out yesterday about Saab AB having not had any discussions with anyone about anything to do … Continue reading “NEVS and The Gypsies”

NEVS’s most recent reconstruction period ends in a matter of days – they’re applying for an extension today – and as we last heard, they had written to creditors seeking a debt reduction agreement. I apologise for not being more in touch with what’s going on (I’m a little preoccupied at the moment) but thankfully, … Continue reading “NEVS Update – Losses and Meetings”

I’m about to jump on a plane and into the eye of a storm – beware women named Marcia! – but I have to post the following, which came out just a few hours ago. Thanks to Pingu for posting it in comments and to those who emailed it to me: —— A composition to … Continue reading “NEVS News – Proposal For Debt Reduction”

I think I’ve just found the Japanese version of the Lancia Fulvia!! Spotted via Bring-A-Trailer, this is a Nissan Silvia from 1965. Just 554 of these were hand-made over a four year period. It was powered by a 1.6 litre, inline 4-cylinder engine making just 96hp. The car is for sale in Japan for around … Continue reading “Nissan FulviaSilvia”

Here are a couple of questions for you….. What’s the highest mileage car you’ve ever bought? And would you take a high-mile classic car over a garage queen? At what price? I check a lot of different vehicles online and I was struck by this one earlier today. It’s a Porsche 928 GT from 1990. … Continue reading “High Milers – Porsche 928GT”

Saab and ANA Well, hasn’t there been some hoo-haa in the last few days, eh?
