    Austin A30: Unique in shape and design

    Sometimes you have a chance meeting where the owner is eager to show his 'small classic car' to others.

    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.

    The Nose of the Pike: Citroën DS

    When our salesman Marc happily informs me that we can auction a great, 45-year-old 7-seater station wagon, it could be German, French, Swedish or American, but at least something beautiful.
