    The market forces and the enthusiasts

    Here on this side of the screen, we like almost everything, but we have our stable preferences in terms of brands and types. We see it just like with relationships: You can float from one to the other, but if you stay with someone you get to know that person and if it goes well, you will appreciate it more and more. Sea

    BX, the birth of a classic

    It has been happening for a long time, of course. It is a fact that new cars become used cars. Then they become used cars, old cars and then? Then they are forgotten until they are discovered. Or stay forgotten. Sea

    Too late for Sinterklaas. In time for Christmas?

    If you are busy with classics 24/24, you often see things that have 'potential' before they are generally 'discovered' and better known. For example, 25 years ago the first ex-Soviet sidecar combination came into the picture in the editorial office and a freelance photographer / V drove around 20+ years ago in a Citroen BX. She still does, although she is now working on BX number five. Sea

    Citroën XM: top or flop?

    There's a plate of an XM with a diesel heart around here. It is unsaleable. Because it is a diesel. But the gorgeous XMs have another problem: At the cocktail tables, they're just as bad as Citroën BXs. Sea

    The reliability of our classics

    There are without a doubt AMK readers who remember that a car had to have a small service and fresh oil every 2500 km and that a clutch with about 50D kilometers and a block with 'a ton on it' was really 'on'. But from the XNUMXs onwards, reliability went very well […] Sea

    Holiday with a classic

    At least: the summer vacation time. Happy retirees are already on fall, Christmas, and spring holidays. When the last holiday came up - Northern France, the French Ardennes - the question from 'the other party' was: "But not in such an old car?" Not all our acquaintances are classic connoisseurs. But of course it was because why should […] Sea

    Fog, sparks and the ignition coil with the BX

    We drive for sustainability reasons - a long story short: classic driving is more sustainable than a Tesla driving - also just classic every day. One of those daily classics is now number five in a consecutive series Citroën BX's. His almost perfect external condition turned out to hide underlying suffering after purchase, but that path has now also been […] Sea

    De Citroën BX remains cheap

    And that is very annoying for people who have the Citroën Like BX so much that they have specialized in it. Garage Berben from Ulft and garage Hesselink from Dirksland are some of those strongholds of pure Citroën BX love. But where in the higher and top segment of the classic country sales are technically delicious […] Sea

    Talking about reliability: The BX

    Speaking of reliability: Due to the BX passion of one of our freelancers, a message sometimes creeps about 'the last real Citroëns' in the news section. And although the time is behind us when birthdays were only talked about how bad those things were, the BXs remain in terms of interest and price level […] Sea

    Worth or not worth. That's the question

    Worth it or not worth it. That's the question When it came up, there was already astonishment: “Almost 1.000 euros in repair costs on a 1400 cc BX from 1991?” ”That is a waste of money! A car like that is never worth it! ” What something is worth is not actually determined by the market. You decide that. Within your capabilities, […] Sea

    The BX octopus job

    The BX octopus job. That is often a prayer without end. But now that BXs are cautiously out of the question, you really don't buy a nice BX for change anymore, it pays to take a good approach. The large and small octopus are the hose bundles that allow the hydraulics of the BX to […] Sea

    The ICCCRX NUMX

    Citroëns in De Steeg. Still put it on the agenda. Because August is closer than you think: From 11-14 August there will be a party in the Steeg, between Velp and Dieren, by the ICCCR2016 foundation. ICCCR stands for Intenational Citroën Car Club Rally. The official agreement to this effect was signed this week by Gaar zu Ortenburg […] Sea
