Instead of celebrating Cyber Stalking Saturday or whatever nonsense holiday big or small business has dreamt up to make us spend money on the Saturday after Thanksgiving…we will continue to celebrate Bracq Friday. If you stopped me and asked “how old is this next car?” — I would not be quick to say 43 years. […]
Happy Bracq Friday to everyone out there in cyberspace. If your idea of the day after Thanksgiving doesn’t involve wrestling a marked down girdle out of the hands of another shopper at Macy’s, then you should spend it marveling at the iconic car designs of master coachbuilder Paul Bracq. Find this 1973 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL 4.5 […]
It is that time of year again. Get ready for Bracq Friday. Yes, you read that correctly, here at Daily Turismo, we use the day after Turkey day to celebrate French mustache enthusiast and car designer and artist Paul Bracq in a celebration that is known worldwide as Bracq Friday. Paul Bracq is a French […]
We had such a good time posting beautiful German cars designed by a Frenchman that we wanted to post yet another classic Fräulein, but this one has a long wheelbase and is bagged. And when I say bagged, I don’t mean like it has been put inside of a bag…but that the suspension has been modified to use inflatable air bags and now it can be stanced or lifted at the flick of a switch. Find this 1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL offered for $10,000 in New Hampshire via craigslist. Tip from Carter.
The Mercedes-Benz W114 was yet another gorgeous 3-box styling design from famed designed Paul Bracq. Most of the W114s you find around are the basic 4-door sedan version, but a few are the sporty coupe. Can a car that hits 60mph in 15 seconds actually be sporty…sure…it is just a matter a opinion, I guess. Happy Bracq Friday! Find this 1972 Mercedes-Benz 250C offered for $9000 in Somersworth, NH. Tip from Carter.
Frenchman Paul Bracq designed many great cars…but few are as affordable for the level of awesomeness as the E24 generation BMW 6-series. You get a big inline-6 in a sporty personal luxury coupe for the price of a piece of junk 15 year old minivan with 150k miles. I’m not saying this car is a good deal, no…I’m shouting at the top of my lungs that it is a STEAL! Find this 1981 BMW 633CSi offered for $8900 in Sacramento, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck. Happy Bracq Friday!
This next car exudes class like only a big executive sedan designed by famed French mustache enthusiast Paul Bracq could do. The (fingers crossed original) powder blue paint, period correct Cali black plates (XMX would have originally be released for a car in 1969) and shockingly low odometer reading (35000?) paint the picture of a car that has been babied and is ready for someone to drive with kid gloves. Let’s hope the reality of a test drive matches the pure vision of automotive nirvana in my head. Happy Bracq Friday everyone. Find this 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SE offered for $15,999 in Seaside, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
This next beast is a continuation of our Bracq Friday spectacular from yesterday — a festival of the best stuff from French born automotive legend Paul Bracq. The W110 fintail Mercedes-Benz was an evolution of the older W120 Ponton shape, but added little “fins” on the rear quarters and was more modern in its shape […]
This next car is a celebration of Bracq Friday — a festival of the best stuff from French born automotive legend Paul Bracq. I know the days of getting a running/driving car for $500 are long behind us…and $500 will barely get you the parts to do your own brake job on a late model car…but […]
