VW-Porsche 914: "It's about the hunt" at Bert Zijlstra 

VW-Porsche 914-1
ER Classics Desktop 2022

This very beautiful VW-Porsche 914 was imported from sunny California by Bert Zijlstra. Bert's hunt focuses on impressive models from the United States, which can be Italian purebreds or German classics and many other models that exude exclusivity.

By: Dirk de Jong

He is not only a great car enthusiast, but also has the gift of a well-developed trading instinct. It manifests itself in a strong desire for the search and purchase, not only with the aim of making money (which is necessary for his California-classics company) but also the interest in the game itself. It is a creative and constructive instinct in Bert.


Not only does he have large networks when it comes to importing special cars, but he also crosses the big lake several times a year to do the business himself. He is actually the Frisian Carini (It's all about the chase).


The slender VW-Porsche 914 had barely been parked outside when the car enthusiasts stopped to look at this jewel of finish and design.

Symbol of wealth

The VW Porsche is no longer in the sales program as a favorably priced sports car. It is now more of a perfect investment as the value only increases. Yet you can enjoy this VW-Porsche 914, even if you are not the owner. We can sit at the car for a while for nostalgic considerations, because that is often the basis of our classic hobby. It is not necessary to describe this piece of jewelry further, countless books have been published about the history of Porsche, and a quick googling provides a large amount of information. Bert's VW Porsche 914 is not just any car, the charm in the photos speak for themselves.
