CC Outtakes: A Yard Filled With Curbside Classics – Most Of Them Are For Sale


A gathering of not so recent vehicles from all points of the compass. That’s the best way to describe the collection I see when I walk by said yard, situated in the center. Most of them are actually parked right at the curb, just asking to be captured in a picture. Alright then.

The first one is the 1998 Chevy Van Starcraft above, powered by a 6.5 liter V8 diesel engine.


An overview. From left to right a 1996 Peugeot Boxer 270C 2.0 gasoline, a 2006 Mazda 6 wagon 2.0 turbo diesel, a 1995 Jaguar Sovereign 3.2 (gasoline -needless to mention-) and a 1998 Volvo V40 2.0 gasoline. As an aside, back then the Peugeot Boxer was already the same van as the Fiat Ducato.


The small red car is a 1995 Peugeot 106 Accent 1.1 gasoline. The truck is a 1991 Volvo FL608, still going strong. Under its tiltcab a 170 hp 6 liter diesel engine.


Here’s the Jaguar (X300-series of the XJ) with its purring inline-6 engine. Grace, Pace and Space.


And the Dutch built first generation Volvo V40.


No plate, so I can’t check its details. But of course there’s a Volvo 200 series-adept out there who can exactly tell us what we are looking at.


Finally, a bit further in the background, a 1997 Chevrolet Express 1500; its V8 is running on LPG.
