    Mazda MX-5… Beauty & The Beast

    Beauty & The Beast: René Bohnen exposed Mazda MX-5 to extremes “On the edge” “If you love driving, you can't help but fall in love with a Mazda MX-5,” says René Bohnen and the resounding success of the model underlines his right. He has the right to speak in any case after the restoration of […] Sea

    Classics: the trade ... the prices

    Trade and prices. Those are weird things. A friend of mine has a BMW R68. He was approached by someone who felt like it. But that man wanted to trade in. He had a BMW HP2 and an Early GS on real Dutch registration. There was talk about that. The next day […] Sea

    Mercedes-Benz 500SEC at winter-sale Old-timer farm

    It is a beautiful period, presents, fun and - what you may not even think of - attractive discounts from the various specialists in classics. The latest edition of AMK is full of it. Unfortunately, the correct advertisement from the Belgian classic specialist Oldtimerfarm was missing. Because they hold their winter sale from 1 to […] Sea

    Honda CB 500 F. The smaller success

    An old wisdom: you can still dance, even if it is not with the bride. Honda shocked the world in 1969 with the revolutionary CB 750 OHC Four. That machine was voted 'engine of the century' last century. But the Honda CB 750 was a (financial) bridge too far for many people. It remained […] Sea

    Jaguar XJ12 ... so British

    For us as classic fans, this is not a cheerful atmosphere for this stylish Brit. Despite the condition of the Jaguar XJ12, we can still enjoy the curving body lines. We are sometimes overcome by a melancholy thought to get the classic out of the long grass for next to nothing. This symbol of prosperity will eventually […] Sea

    Studebaker, too small to win

    My two favorite toy cars were Corgi Toys, the slightly nicer counterparts of the Dinky Toys. They were Avenger John Steed's 1928 Bentley 3 Liter and the Studebaker Golden Hawk. "A 'Hawk' is a hawk," my father explained. Studebaker, problems in 1933 1n 1966 In 1736 relatives of the Stutenbecker family left […] Sea

    Riley Mk3 ... a challenge?

    What on earth got Willem van Strik into putting time, energy and euros into a lifeless Riley Mk3? An old-timer whose clutch has exploded and was stored with a broken gearbox in Belgium where it drove around for years? It goes without saying that his motherland is England, where the Riley was known as 'One Point Five'. […] Sea

    Porsche 914-6. A true Porsche

    So the Porsche 914-6. In the automotive world - before the big brand incest started - we were quite conservative and brand steady. Someone could be a genetic Porsche driver. And be proud of it. We did not want much of excesses. From something as unusual as a straight-line Porsche with a mid-engine, for example. And the thing still smelled like VW […] Sea

    Buy oldtimer?

    You should take this into account when purchasing. Who doesn't want to drive and enjoy a real classic. Super nice of course, but there are a few things that you have to take into account if you want to buy a classic car. When purchasing any car 'with experience' it is important to […] Sea

    Daf, a day out with a smile

    A day of driving Daf 32 and 33 means a real step back in time and wonder about the brilliant Variomatic. Today, they are still fun, and make people smile. Both in passing and behind the wheel. They are worthy of reporting. Sea

    Llwellyn, his BMW and Carmelita

    'Llwellyn - Pronounce' Lyn '- Flint. Sounds like the name of a Welsh hero warrior. Llwellyn is not a warrior. He is a poet. He has the appearance of a mildly surprised flax-haired gnome. He is one of the vague acquaintances who occasionally manifest in someone's life. A […] Sea
