    When owner Marc gladly informs me that we are allowed to photograph a great 50 year old 7 seater station wagon, it can be German, French, Swedish or American, but in any case something beautiful. When a few days later I am in a neighborhood in Amstelveen where a garage door slowly has a pointed nose with a split 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.  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
