    Driving the MG MGC GT

    Every true classic enthusiast knows the MG MGB, perhaps one of the standard-bearers in the world of the classic experience. The car was delivered as a roadster and a coupé, and was available in several capacities and with several engine variants during its career. A special variant was the MG MGC, which was produced from 1967 to 1969 […] More

    'Enjoliveurs', the make-up of your classic

    'Enjoliveurs', that already sounds good. The term 'enjoliveurs' for our French fellow Europeans covers all chrome parts and shiny work such as wheel covers and so on. But all kinds of other parts can also be 'enjoliveur'. The tendency to want to stand out from the crowd even dates from the time before the invention […] More

    Herbie meets young fan

    Although the first Herbie movie hit theaters in 1969, the special Beetle movie still has young fans. Like ten-year-old Anouk Zwagerman, for example. Her dream came true yesterday when she got to see one of the original movie cars. We recently registered Auto Motor Klassiek about Herbie, because one of the original movie cars is […] More

    Vauxhall Viva

    Just as on the other side of the Channel or the North Sea, classic enthusiasts should not talk about The M-word in public - we are talking about the Austin Metro, Maestro and Montego - that same target group on the Continent prefers not to speak about the Vauxhall Viva… More popular than the VW […] More

    Exceptional: International KB7

    A while ago we came across the International KB7 from 1947 in King's Lynn, UK, against the closing of the market. As the 'load' of this mastodon from Washington, USA, which can be seen on the license plate, a gigantic - German - organ… The sounds produced by this organ will be heard throughout the […] More

    The Moto Guzzi V7 Sport. In AMK number 8

    The Moto Guzzi V7 Sport. That was and is a phenomenal motorcycle. A success for the always ailing Moto Guzzi factory. The proof of that? Of the 150 homologation models for the Moto Guzzi V7 Sport with the red chrome molybdenum frame, at least 300 are still on the road. But those 'telaio rosso' models are therefore […] More

    The Rover SD1, a beautiful miss

    The Rover SD1. That was a car that shook the world. It even became Car of the Year in 1977. However, that title has been a curse rather than a blessing for more cars… A car that drove its buyers to despair. The 3500 cc V8s were made at the time when the British […] More

    Porsche 911 R number 16

    Some Porsches are special because of their limited production number or their special history. Take the 911 Porsche 1968 R with rare and modified specs. This is one of 19 lightweight units ever built and has a fully documented, unique combination of engine and body. The Porsche 911 R at issue is […] More

    Those tires are way too expensive!

    "Those tires are way too expensive!" "I can get those tires much cheaper!" Classic fans are just people. So there is sometimes a cloud runner or an arch support in between which, before he goes somewhere, first looks on the Internet to see what the lowest price in the known universe is for the stuff he […] More

  • Royal Enfield

    A Royal Enfield racer

    A Royal Enfield racer. And an oldie still. But what a racer. And how old is he actually? AMK number 8 tells the story of a Royal Enfield racing bike. An engine from the XNUMXs. An engine of which no technical data are known, but of which the experts […] More

    The story behind the Volkswagen Beetle in the photo

    The very old photo arrived on my device via What's App. The sender was my uncle, who discovered this image in an old photo album. The photo from 1971 shows the green Volkswagen Beetle, which my grandfather owned at the time of making the analog print. He was with my grandmother […] More
