    Mercedes Benz S123. The first station wagon developed by Mercedes-Benz

    In 1977 the world became acquainted with the station wagon variant of the W123: the Mercedes-Benz S123. The T-model will be made public at the IAA in Frankfurt. Like the W123 sedan, the presentation of the 'Mercedes-T' unleashes high demand, leading to long delivery times. Production starts in Bremen in 1978. It is the beginning of an era in which no one at Mercedes-Benz is in any doubt about the importance of a Combi variant within the model range. Sea

    Renault 4. Drive with a smile.

    The Renault 4. Every time it provides a surprise. If you are on the road with the modest French evergreen, comfort, a decent amount of space and pleasant good-naturedness will be yours. To a greater extent than you would expect. We were allowed to experience it in a copy from 1985. Sea

    Classics can shine. Or not – column

    Spoke this week with the proud, but above all 'happy' owner of a restored top classic. And heard how he had secured his storage room against burglary. Because he fully realizes that he is not the only one with very good taste. Sea

    Classics in Canada – Message from Bas

    And through our Canadian friend Bas van der Hoek you will hear about John Anthony MacGregor, Citroëns own Prophet in Canada. Somewhere in the story there is also the set of aluminum rims that Bas scored for his CX and for which he had to have special wheel bolts. That worked. The local parts supply of classic Citroëns is apparently well done within the Canadian enthusiast circles. Sea

    The market, the split

    There is one thing that binds us right now: our surprise at the classic prizes. We read what they brought in at the international auction houses. And at Chasing Classic Cars we see how double thick glossy painted cars and some engines go to… Bored rich men and cold investors for hair-raising prices. Sea

    Canada, networks and a Porsche

    Canada is like America, but more civilized. Canada is a kind of Europe, but a bit more adventurous. Canada is also much more focused on Europe than the States which are mainly focused on the United States of America. And - not unimportantly - in Canada there are many more European classics than in The States, apart from the VW Beetles and vans. Canada is even bigger and wider than Gelderland and the Achterhoek.

    What is what completely worth? The MZ is doing the splits

    In our hobby everyone - except me - actually assumes that prices are asking prices. This means that the selling party has a price idea. But the bottom line is - if you're not a seasoned trader - “Do I want it and can I afford it?”. The Internet is teeming with people who, at any given price, howl louder than the eight wolves on the Veluwe can do together. Sea

    Scania L80: Classic XL

    The last classic truck trip? I made it when Jan Tinga still had his Scania 142 'nose' as a car transporter. That giant had to go because of the Euro emission regulations. But a classic truck as a hobby vehicle? Well… They are often quite the size and not very useful. Sea
