As a passionate enthusiast, Meindert is associated with the Ford brand. There's nothing more fun than sharing the enthusiasm for classic Fords with like-minded people. For him, that is connectedness through passion. And the Ford Granada 2600 GL from Meindert is rarely seen on the road anymore.

You sometimes come across this impressive Ford at an event. And ... of course in the beautiful Frisian countryside. Finally, you can now take a look at the Ford and nature.
Meindert: “My Ford Granada 2600 GL is a beautiful example in an unprecedented original condition. A great touring car, lovely seats, this German solidity will bring me many years of pleasure. The story goes that this Ford was also in the stock of the Gallery in Brummen. He cannot have had a hard life. Everything is just new thanks to the dedication of the previous owner who shaped his car love for Ford in this way. I have a great fondness for Ford and I think this Granada is fantastic.”
Ford wrote at the time:
A car with beautiful lines. The atmosphere of comfort, luxury and power, which makes the car ideally suited as a business limousine. A very strong asset in the top segment of prestige automobiles.
Meindert: “When I was tipped off about the offer of this Ford, I had to hold my breath. It immediately exerted an undeniable attraction for me. In fact: Goosebumps! And that physical sensation confirms that you are on the trail of something valuable, there was no hesitation, the car was bought and registered. The great enjoyment could begin, and that would be small tours in the area and perhaps participation in events. It's a beauty on wheels, I can't get enough of it."
We make no attempt to explain Meindert's enthusiasm. Our experience is that many enthusiasts let themselves be carried away by enthusiasm, which often leads to burning love. Meindert proved with his reaction that owning a classic car has an effect on happiness. Don't you think it's a beautiful Ford?
