Ok, so today was my first day in Berlin, and I definitely saw more cool old European (mostly German) cars than anywhere else I've been on my trip so far. I'll go in order of appearance:

I saw this mint mini with rims first thing this morning


Then I saw this mint alfa romeo


A really cool benz


A nice porsche


I'm not sure what this car was, but it was lowered and had a cage in it



Then an old E21


Couple E30's

continued....


A cool 1802 and the driver was listening to The Cure Acoustic Hits



another Porsche


E30 touring (seen a couple others but they were driving by and didn't get a shot)


it was parked beside a nice E34


This cool little breadvan, have no idea what it is



I've got a set of those rims in the shed!


And this clean E28 when I was getting groceries for dinner

Kinda looks like a Capri Mk III with Mk II headlights.. But that trunk and the B-pillar really throws me off.

Very cool pics though! Thanks!

Edit: It's a late 80's (probably an '88) Opel Manta GSI

The finish on the lips is pretty rough. I'll either polish them, or sand them a bit and rattle can them then use them for a set of track rubber.

Your D-Force rims should be your track rubber. Aren't they a hell of a lot lighter than the style 10's? I already stole your style 10's, so it does't really matter.

It's true that they are a lot lighter, but they are also brand new unlike the other rims which are corroded. That's why I'm using them for my street wheels. At some point in time the D-Force rims will probably become track rubber as well.... a set of slicks and a set of R-Comps

Well, if you decide one day that you don't want those ugly style 10's, I could probably find a home for them. Then you can buy another set of D-force or some Team Dynamics for your array of track rubbers.

There's an e36 for sale here in Milton with style 10's right now. I didn't know they made them in 5 bolt.

more cars from Berlin

the past couple day has been a lot of the same stuff in terms of spotting cars so I din't take as many pics as the first day. One thing I found surprising was the lack of modded BMWs, I've only seen a couple.

Anyways, here's a stock version of that cool car, it was definitely an Opel Manta B2. This one is just a regular Open manta



This is the first 'modded' bmw that I saw (and the only one I got pics of)



A nice 4dr E30


Porsche Targa


Lotus Evora


An old Fiat, I dig the luggage rack on the back

Another nice stock E30


Not sure what Ferrari this was, but it had a Pininfarina badge on the side




E34 touring


Spotted a Z1 by the olympic stadium driving around with the doors down



And a new 5 series near where I'm staying

Oh you wanna play it like that, eh!? haha! I can't have everything, but damnit, I'm trying!

BTW, those 16" Z1 rims fit e30's as well... if you could steal them for me, and the steering wheel please, that would be great. Thanks!
