    Living in France, exporting car

    It is an aside because we also include some younger cars here. Our approach is namely a Chevrolet Silverado of just under thirty years old. He is with an AMK reader and his partner to France. More

    Bimota, almost always in trouble

    Bimota: Proof that Italians can prioritize. Even if it is only 'First the passion, then the pasta'. Bimota is one such brand that every student at Nijenrode Business University gets flakes from between their fingers. Bimota made the most fantastic engines and staggered from one financial crisis to another. Nice is not it? More

    Winter time, key time

    Okay, it's not winter yet, but summer has passed its peak. And that is the time to stop dreaming and what to do. In recent years, we have seen a trend that buyers of classics have the luxury to go for convenience. More

    Powder coating and blasting

    We were on a job with a very friendly technology enthusiast and saw a track bike with a striking silver frame color. The paint had a hard, smooth and deep gloss. Our host Bart Verstijnen turned out to be the man behind Custom Coatings Helvoirt and he turned out to be just as passionate about his work […] More

    An online movie column

    It is again to get on the bike well dressed. The current correct motorcyclists also do this at temperatures above 30 degrees. They also generally find motorcycles too noisy. Obey traffic laws. And drink spring water from the right brands. Fine. More

    Classics from a legacy. Part 2

    A collection of classics that has been built up over thirty or even fifty years ... It can be impressive. And largely 'invisible'. We know of a collector who has 94 antique bicycles that his wife knows nothing about.

    The same parts for a lower price

    We usually do not have unlimited budgets for our passion. Fortunately, there is a lot to do without the wallet getting sunken cheeks. Those cheap (er) solutions don't even have to compromise the result. A bunch of weathered exhaust curves And so we come to the exhaust curves of one of our daily classics. The mid-years […] More

    Universals. Passion for technology. And the future

    Recently we were in Zaandam for a job. Afterwards we passed a garage where a few classics were behind glass on the first floor. We put the car safely under a parking prohibition sign, walked gently past some electric Randstad cars and entered Autovink, a real, classic universal garage with an eye […] More

    Riding an army motorcycle: It can be cheap

    Seventy-five years after the liberation, the WLA and C models from Harley-Davidson, the BMW R75 and thick Zündapp boxers have actually become unaffordable. Other European ex-army motorcycles from WWII are still reasonably to affordable. Think of the British and the now recognized classic Russian M72 models (which are clones of the BMW R71). In front of […] More

    Back in the days…

    Our world used to be different. Print media were top notch. And TV was on the rise. New cars were advertised by men like Fred van de Vlucht, the Godfather in the Dutch car sector. Characters instead of chatters Van der Vlugt became unforgettable because of the unorthodox way in which he put cars to the test. He […] More

    Renovating classics. Is that allowed?

    We recently had a 'customized' Yanktank in AMK. It showed that Auto Motor Klassiek readers m / f (but especially 'm') have a pleasantly large frame of mind. When such a metamorphosis was once described in a club magazine, almost a revolution broke out: it was sacrilege! Because there is no arguing about taste. And because […] More
