mercmerc2I regularly find Merc W123 series and only some make the cut onto my camera for being extra-interesting. This 280CE tops the list of W123s that I’ve come across, this time on Gardiner Row near Parnell Square. The bodywork is pristine and I love the stance at the front with the lower splitter lip. I certainly wouldn’t fancy parking it around that area for too long though.”

volvovolvo2“The Volvo 440 used to be a fairly common sight on Irish roads but they’ve become especially rare, particularly the pre-facelift models like this 1993 example on Clare St {Dublin].”

stag2“Triumph’s infamous Stag was found here on Lombard Street {Dublin}. It boasted the troublesome 3.0V8 engine and had a 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive. I’m not sure of the year but it look like a late model, probably 1976-1978.”
