    A Facel is quite an expensive thing

    FACEL (Forges et Ateliers de Construction d'Eure et de Loire), was founded by Jean Daninos, and supplied coachwork to Delahaye, Panhard and Simca. In 1953 it was decided to build cars. After having produced some 2.700 cars, Facel went bankrupt in 1964. We looked under the hood of a Vega Excellence and saw a […] Sea

    A set of piston rings, plus some things

    Piston rings are pretty tricky things. What many people don't even know is that they often have an order and an 'top' and 'bottom'. And, oh yes: they must ensure that the compression and expansion takes place between the cylinder head and the convex side of the piston. A 'blow by' When the hot exhaust fumes […] Sea

    A Chrysler Newport sedan from 1964

    Classic enthusiasts nowadays pay more for barn finds and unrestored cars than for top restorations. Weird? Why not. Restoration work, however beautifully done, takes away the shine of the past. We found a never restored 1964 Chrysler Newport sedan. In Chasing Classic Cars, Wayne Carini has no problem quoting seven-digit numbers for a car damaged by fire and […] Sea

    The Horex Imperator (1954-1958)

    Horex as it existed from 1928 to 1956 was a company that built motorcycles of absolute top quality. Apart from the quality of Horex, that undeniable quality, Horex was still the brand of the late or wrong decisions. And that is and remains a shame. During the twenties and thirties the engines got better and […] Sea

    Back to the old nest: a BMW R51 / 3

    In the Beginning The roots of the BMW R51 lie in 1938. And after the war the thread was picked up again. In the early XNUMXs, the economy was already doing much better and there was a growing need for simply practical motorcycles. BMW therefore increasingly profiled itself as a manufacturer of 'sidecar tractors. Because […] Sea

    Mille Miglia 2018

    By: Marcel Winkelman De Mille Miglia: between 1927 and 1957 a road race over 1000 miles from Brescia to Rome and back again. The "remake" since 1977. It was nice that this year we went with the young timer with which I visited my first edition in 2003, an appropriate “Siena red” colored BMW 330d from 2000. More than two […] Sea

    More power through…. Panacea part 2

    More power through strange Miracles. We recently showed the fan that could be mounted in the suction line. Garage operator Kees van Rumpt from Dirksland had lovingly adopted the thing to put in his display case with useless things. But there is more that we can be surprised about: the Super Inertial Super-Charger System So found […] Sea

    The Honda C110 and - 114, the sporty little ones from Honda

    The Honda Super Cub has been in continuous production since 1958 and 100 million units have been built worldwide. This makes the Super Cub the world's most built motorized two-wheeler. But the C110 and the C114 were nicer. But the market asked for something less serious. Something more sporty. That is why Honda invented for 1960 […] Sea
