    Opel is celebrating Opel Commodore's 50 anniversary in a special classic rally

    Exactly 50 years ago, the Opel Commodore appeared on the scene as a new flagship with the 2.2 and the 2,5-liter engine.

The VX is based on the only charismatic custom / chopper ever to come from Japan: the Suzuki Intruder. Most common are the end of production dates of 1993 for The States and 1997 for Europe.

    Yamaha RD350

    The Yamaha RD350. A fiercely serious two-stroke In the XNUMXs there was a jihad between four-stroke and two-stroke drivers. Just look at the first Joe Bar Team album. We are not talking about endearing free-range animals such as the then already dated Jawas, but about Japanese two-stroke.

    Driving on Houtgas: Houtomobiles. The lost generation

    Logomobiles ran on wood gas. In WWII they were also quite well known here. Driving on wood gas has not become a success Driving on wood gas. This requires a whole installation. And because wood gas is low in calories, driving a hauto saves about 40+% power compared to a petrol block. But there are brave […] More

    Driving with a rarity: the Fiat 133

    In 1974 Fiat importer Leonard Lang brought the Seat 133 to the Netherlands. The Spanish successor to the Seat 850, the license model of the Fiat 850, debuted in our country as Fiat 133.

    The man with a slit hat and a ball-neck

    On the back roads: The man with a fedora and bowler Where: In the countryside. On rustic routes between villages and provincial cities such as Doetinchem and Dokkum. Most on Sundays.

    The inverted world: rust on request

    The Upside Down World: Rust on request. It most resembles that. A classic restored in showroomshine was once the most beautiful thing you could imagine.

    Alfasud in 1972

    Building a brand new car in a brand new factory, working with workers who have never built a car in their lives is a recipe for impending disaster. Just think of the Hillman Imp and De Lorean. Anyway, we started talking about the Alfasud, which by former and unemployed Neapolitan […] More
