What We Saw – Cars

Of all the many available choices for viewing pleasure while walking the streets of NW Portland, some of the most interesting sights, at least to me, have proven to be the variety and often age of cars parallel-parked. We went to Couch Park to read for a bit yesterday afternoon and here are some examples of what we saw just in our own little corner of the neighborhood:

After doing some research I found out that this is a 1965 Sunbeam Minx V.

A Lincoln limousine. That could not have been easy to parallel-park.

An amazing old Land Rover, not sure what model though.

An amazing 1965 Land Rover Series IIA.

Mid-late 60s Mustang. Was in really good shape.

1968 Mustang. Was in really good shape.

This Volkswagen was emblazoned with a 'Karmann' insignia. Anyone know the specifics on that?

This is a pretty rare 1974 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia.

While not in the best of shape, this is a rare example of a Rover car.

While not in the best of shape, this appears to be a 1966 Rover 2000 TC

  7. I saw it getting towed a few weeks ago and it ended up behind the Food Mart at the corner of NW 21 and Northrup. I’m going to make a post about that car soon…
