    Rolls-Royce under sail

    Actually, I can't remember ever being able to spot a special car in the open air in the Netherlands. But on Friday, July 30, I saw this car to my amazement. You could tell he had once been under a tarpaulin. Sea

    Hillman Imp

    In 1963, the Rootes Group launched the Hillman Imp, as an antidote to Earth-rival British Motor Corporation's successful Mini. The Imp was a lot more conventional than its stubborn counterpart. It was just a small car with the rear engine and rear wheel drive. Characteristic is that the motor was made of aluminum. The cylinder capacity was […] Sea

    Holden, found fading away

    Holden is a car brand that is not common in Europe. It is an Australian General Motors product. Australia is a nation with its own identity and - until recently - its own car industry. Although it may not ring bells for you, it is a historic car brand. By: Dirk de […] Sea

    DAF camper, is it time to say goodbye?

    It will not be long before this DAF camper will be anchored deep into the earth, the elements have had free rein for years. The owner may see this unique DAF as a storage type, but for us it is a sad sight. It goes without saying that after so many years in the same place, the DAF with the self-build caravan is slowly merging into […] Sea

    Respectless end?

    For us, the concept of 'Banger racing' has no charm. On the contrary, we would like to see special old-timers saved. This Ford is ready to finish in such a race and has been specially collected from a demolition company from Germany. A disrespectful ending. At the Banger race the goal is simple: Bring some cars up […] Sea

    Matra Bagheera: Verkeerd Afgelopen

    A GPS system is a revelation, not only that addresses are found flawlessly, but that the route often takes the smallest roads, even sandy paths. All this at the command of a sweetly colored ladies' voice. And so we drove towards the autumn of 2016 in France on a forest path where suddenly the scene depicted here appeared. […] Sea

    Verkeerd afgelopen? Without much comment

    The French Limousin is empty and intact. In such an area there is little chance of finding many classics other than some flea market and old agricultural implements. So in that respect the holiday was less successful. But it was nice and quiet. Classics are where people were So not in the Limousin. Here in the Netherlands […] Sea

    Mini Clubman Estate - Just picking up?

    Looking at the pictures will also convince you that you will not make it with just 'tapping' at this Mini Clubman Estate. For decades, the cart, dating from 1973, stood in a small garden some 15 kilometers from Newmarket in the County of Suffolk. Enjoying his 'Old Day', surrounded by […] Sea

    Jaguar S-type 3.8 Liter 1966

    When you see this Jaguar S-type 3.8 Liter from 1966, tears come to your eyes. After a carburettor fire, the Noble Roofkat (for punishment?) Had to spend at least three decades outside in the open air. Nature had taken care of it. The owner of this fine property passed away, the heirs wanted to […] Sea

    Austin A55 Cambridge: Verkeerd Afgelopen

    Spinning through the British countryside, on a so-called 'gravel road' near the British Wareham, County Dorset, the Austin A55 Cambridge was discovered. Looks like an object dating from around 1957? An elderly accidental passer-by who was walking his dog reported that this Cambridge had been there for a little more than a few days […] Sea
