    Goggomobil T250

    Such a Goggo dates back to the time when happiness was still common and savings were made for something like a car and people were careful with it. The Goggomobil pictured here, a T250 from presumably 1959 - with a right-hand steering wheel - survived for a long time and eventually ended up in a scrap yard in Ireland. More

    Swallow Doretti

    The editorial staff of Auto Motor Klassiek are on the road a lot and therefore encounter everything. The same goes for the Swallow Doretti pictured here. A product from Swallow Coachbuilding, founded by William Lyons, the man who 'made' Jaguar. Under the leadership of a new management, approximately 250 open sports cars were built in the 1950s, existing ones More

    Ethanol: E10 in vintage cars?

    Mazda MX5

    Poorly running engine

    After overhauling the engine of your classic car - the job, especially because of the winter weather, maybe longer than expected - you have it all installed again and yes, it runs again. With effort. Popping, popping and then it's silence again. Repulsed. After frantic attempts you get the machine back on track, but the engine is still running very badly. The doubt takes hold of you, the spark plug cables are connected in the correct order, the dots are not too tight, the ignition is on time More

    Import classics and vintage cars

    People are often trained for the inspection of modern transport and they differ significantly technically from the traditional car or motorcycle. That sometimes causes problems and ambiguities. And so the FEHAC sat down with the RDW to see what they can do about it. Although in principle it should be that everyone with every vehicle can go to the RDW, a selection of five designated RDW inspection stations has now been made. The RDW employees at these stations have specific knowledge of classics. RDW and FEHAC work together to maintain this knowledge and to deepen it where necessary. More

    Old-timers yet MRB exemption?

    For example, we just read on colleague Autoweek's website that it might not be so bad and the old-timers remain exempt from MRB, also under the new cabinet. For example, sources on Finance confirmed to the magazine. As we understood, the newly appointed State Secretary for Finance Frans Weekers, himself a classic enthusiast and owner of a Peugeot 504, wants to spare the old-timer enthusiasts. More
