    How can an international businessman who has been buying (and selling) wholesale lots for over 40 years escape the bustle of business life? If business is a lifestyle and business acumen is active 24 hours a day, is there still free time?

    Volkswagen Scirocco CL (1982). The fire of joy for Jetse 

    A beautiful story of father and son with a healthy dose of car enthusiasts. In 2015 a Volkswagen Scirocco was found and the passion broke through to start a restoration job. It was the right thing to do, nothing could stop them, it felt good and they both let themselves be guided by a fantastic sense of pleasure. If you are enthusiastic, then nothing seems difficult, but it took at least 5 years of hard work to prepare the Volkswagen for a second life.  Sea

    VW Polo Harlekin. An ugly young timer

    It has been 25 years since the Volkswagen Polo Harlekin appeared on the market. As a tribute to that colorful Polo, Volkswagen Netherlands came up with a new Polo Harlekin. A one-off, but the result is no less. Or less bad. The original Volkswagen Polo Harlekin based on the Polo 6N was never actually intended to go into production, but it happened nonetheless. Sea

    'Van comes in a minute'. The VW vans

    'Van is coming in a minute'. That was in 1995 when the Salland duo 'Hӧllenboer' had a hit with 'Het van comes soon'. The text is satirical about two addicts waiting for the methadone bus. At the time, the singer Gerard was a nurse in addiction care and wrote the text to present the heavy subject of addiction in a fun way at a study day. The one-liner “Busje will come” became world famous in the Netherlands. Rightly so. Because what would the Netherlands be without vans? Sea
