Renault Primaquatre, you see rust ... we see gold

Renault Primaquatre rear

The unexpected encounters in life are often the most interesting. We came across Gerrit who has a hobby of finding hidden (car) treasures and found this Renault Primaquatre. A man with a large dose of dexterity and perhaps even more important: a lot of patience. 

By: Dirk de Jong

His raids are going all over the country and sometimes beyond. Whether he wants it or not, the vintage cars continue to lure him like a magnet. You have collectors of all kinds, so we don't tell anything new. And a collection cannot be stopped, it is in Gerrit's genes. 

This Renault Primaquatre is an old man from the distant past, around the 30s. This is of course no longer an elegant lady with a stylish appearance. So why the above-average interest in this pile of rust? 

Also interesting:

The explanation is that Gerrit is doing the restoration of a much better Renault Primaquatre and then every part, button, sheet metal is important to bring the restoration to a successful conclusion. That is why his statement is correct: You see rust ... we see gold.
