    Tax for the old diesel. What about now?

    Some time ago we informed you about the plans of the tax authorities to tax the "polluting" old diesel with an extra surcharge of 15%. A private diesel is considered polluting if it emits more than 5 mg of particulate matter (without ex-factory particulate filter) per kilometre.

    BMW mono suspension boxers

    Currently, a lot of BMW two-valve boxers are being converted into unique machines for youthful men with beards. The flush of good, original copies is getting thinner. And that also applies to the latest BMW two-valve boxers: the machines with mono suspension. And there is something to be said about those models. Reborn Boxers Who Were Boxers More

    Datsun, not Austin

    Wherever you read, whatever you read about the very first Datsun, every time it is made clear to you that it was a Japanese-built Austin Seven for the Japanese market. Unfortunately, that's nonsense. The DAT Corporation in Yokohama had been producing cars since 1914, but it was realized in the XNUMXs that More

    Classics: Mainstream or unique?

    Mainstream or unique, that is the question. Most of our classics? There are usually so many of them that there are clubs for that. And that 'mainstream' certainly doesn't have to be civil or anything like that is clear. Because a Porsche 914, and E-type or a Mustang? Those were not apparitions of which you More

    Saint Tropez in 1961

    The French seaside resort of Saint Tropez is described by many as 'mundane'. In the 'Banana box' we found a photo of the harbor, taken in 1961. At least, that's what it says on the back. A beautiful picture that probably involved the Ferrari 250 GT Pininfarina convertible…? We have, as good and as bad as More

    King's Day, bargain day

    King's Day, shopping day Whatever you think about the royal family: King's Day, formerly Queen's Day, is a funny phenomenon with all the free markets. That King's Day has become so busy in a few large cities that people in the crowd panic and call 112? Oh, you always have something like that. And how stupid can you More

    Kids and classics: the motorcycle

    On a beautiful Saturday afternoon in the spring it is nice to mooch around your motorcycle. I do drive outside the weekend crowds. I am my own boss and I decide on which day my Sunday falls. Sometimes I have two Sundays a week. A neighbor comes with More

    Electronics and classic motorcycles over 25 years

    In the past, motorcycling was something for people without money for a car. Now it's a high tech lifestyle thing. In the past, the technology was mechanical and the abilities were still according to human understanding. We are classic enthusiasts. And we started talking about the bikes of today, about the classics of the future. And More

    BMW 2800 CS. From four to six cylinders

    In the summer of 1968, the four-cylinder BMW coupé models were succeeded by the six-cylinder models. The new coupé line became the sporty version of the new large sedan models, the 2500 and 2800. The first CS (Coupe Sport) was the BMW 2800 CS with a 170 hp six-cylinder engine. The CS was a More

    Citroen 2 CV - Outlier ...

    Lack of external charm? Wonderful to look back on the reactions in the trade press about the Citroen 2 CV (2PK Citroën) around the fifties: “All the French are in agreement, it's better to have a simple 2 CV and sit dry, and not have to consume large amounts of petrol.”  More
