    Triumph trident. What's in a name?

    A trident. A spear with a personality disorder. Or cutlery for a lover of five pound steaks. And traditionally the weapon from the PSU of Poseidon, a God from the time when people still believed in Gods. And the unimaginative ones. But dramatically charged type name for three-cylinder combustion engines. The Triumph So trident. Read more

    Austin A30: Unique in shape and design

    Sometimes you have a chance meeting where the owner is eager to show his 'small classic car' to others. He was willing to reveal that he was a big fan of small classic cars such as the Italian bambinos (Fiat/Autobianchi) and English saloons such as this Austin A30. However, we didn't get to hear the story behind the car, so we thought it would be fun to dive into the (advertising) past of this 'everymans' car.  Read more

    Morris Ital. Maligned and forgotten.

    It was overcast that day with a lot of showers, uncle Arie won a roulade at the bingo in the evening and Henk Wijngaard's Container song rose to number 17 in the top 40. Probably more people can remember that better than the introduction of the Morris Ital on the same Tuesday, 1 July 1980. But we have not forgotten him. Read more

    Morris Minor 1000 Estate (1966). Ciska's car.

    Jan and Ciska have two passions. First of all, their work as operators of a very nice sailing clipper (LENA-ADRIANA), providing many tourists with pleasant hours.

    Austin A 40 Sedan (1948). Historical asset

    This Austin A 40 Sedan has traditionally been a venerable quality brand. Perhaps that's why the classic still hasn't given up the fight for survival - after 72 years. The car was in the collection of Willem Keizer from Stadskanaal, who collects old vehicles from the Second World War and gives it a new life. Read more

    Triumph Bonneville. A memory

    Recently I drove for a client on a new one Triumph Bonneville. An iconic motorcycle type from a brand with an illustrious name. A tribute to everything that was once British. Oh yes: the new Bonnies are made in Thailand. But Benelli is now a Chinese brand and Royal Enfield is working overtime in India. Read more

    Sunbeam Alpine (1965). Unprecedented driving pleasure

    Do you have any idea how to recognize a classic fan? He or she suddenly pops up when a classic comes into view. Always take the mobile with you so that photos can be taken immediately. Does not stop talking about classics and old-timers. Visibly gets a warm feeling. That also happened to us when we saw a beautiful 'open air' Sunbeam Alpine in the Frisian town of Ee. Read more
