    Peugeot 203 C (1955). Delighted about the property

    Of course we would like to know everything about this 203 C. originally with a French registration number. Wouter says: “It came to the Netherlands in a light blue original color to be restored. The owner probably did not have enough time to start the time-consuming job and offered it - in 2016 - at a classic car event in Twijzelerheide (Fr). More

    An online movie column

    Simca Rallye. Beloved rejuvenation treatment for a proven recipe

    In 1970 Simca caused a stir by introducing the 1000 Rallye. Simca developed this sporty 1000 version themselves, and the time of launch was striking to say the least. The 1000 concept had been running for nine years and, according to the prevailing opinion, no longer corresponded to the spirit of the times. But Simca dived in in a smart way More

    Seventy-five years after the liberation, the WLA and C models from Harley-Davidson, the BMW R75 and thick Zündapp boxers have actually become unaffordable.
