    Tax for the old diesel. What about now?

    Some time ago we informed you about the plans of the tax authorities to tax the “polluting” old diesel with an extra surcharge of 15%.

    Datsun, not Austin

    Wherever you read, whatever you read about the very first Datsun, every time you are made clear that it was a Japan-built Austin Seven for the Japanese market. Unfortunately, that's bullshit.

And that 'mainstream' certainly does not have to be bourgeois or anything like that is clear. Because a Porsche 914, an E-type or a Mustang? Those were not appearances, ten of which you […] More

    Saint Tropez in 1961

    The French seaside resort of Saint Tropez is described by many as 'mundane'. In the 'Banana box' we found a photo of the harbor, taken in 1961. At least, that's on the back. A beautiful picture that probably concerned the Ferrari 250 GT Pininfarina convertible…? We have, as good and as bad as that went, […] More

    Kids and classics: the motorcycle

    On a beautiful Saturday afternoon in the spring, it is nice to fiddle around your motorcycle. I do drive outside of the weekend crowds. I am my own boss and I decide on which day my Sunday falls. Sometimes I have two Sundays a week. A neighbor across the street comes with her son […] More

    Citroen 2 CV - Outlier ...

    Lack of external charm? Wonderful to look back on the reactions in the trade press about the Citroen 2 CV (2PK Citroën) around the fifties: "All French are in complete agreement, you better have a dead simple 2 CV and sit dry, and not have to consume large amounts of gasoline." “The trump card […] More
