The price of cars is determined by the law of supply and demand. When there is little demand, the value changes. But does the value always decrease with increasing age? As classic enthusiasts, we know better. The value of - special - models then increases. But the guidelines for second, third or fourth-hand prices no longer provide good advice for this Ford Prefect of the British arm of the brand.

Eelke is crazy about old Fords and therefore tries to offer old classic car parts for business in his company in the Frisian Veenwouden. So he does not go to the junkyard, but gets a second life as a parts supplier or he becomes an art object. A place as decoration in a garden center is also possible for the Ford Prefect.
Some people have classic sensors. They smell stranded projects or rust miles away. Eelke van der Kooi is attracted by it like a wasp on sweets. In this way, fun projects come into the limelight again and that makes it all very special.
