With off course, the inevitable DS (Godess):

Lovely example - note the headlights. And yes, they will follow your steering input.


There were so many made and today they are not a rare sight so maybe one overlooks the sheer quality and beauty of these cars - I love 'em! Maybe upgrade with a modern 2 liter 4 and they will make a great daily people mover.


That's what I mean!


Alpine Renault V6 next to a BMW Isetta.


Interlude wink


I have no idea how these compare to period Lotus cars: anyone?

Next: Dzjerman.

Merc:

What a smart coupe this is!

Closer look:

Damn!


A bit more bold than the period Italian coupes.


Hints of Facel Vega.


Maybe a bit overdone on the chrome bits . . .

Teunonic mobster hack:

50s Bullitt Charger.


For many this was the star of the show.


Just as with the DS: gorgeous details on this S.


Presence.

Next: more Yank.

Mustangs seem to be popular:

289 vert.


Nice looking auto.


A good summer cruiser.


Gotta have these wheels.


Another fine one.


I prefer the darker colours . . . or red.


Coupe.


Manual.


WTF cups?

Next: more Yank.

I was thoroughly impressed by this straight six 2.8 Falcon family hack:

Owner bought this '64 Falcon because of the space: perfect family hack to take the kids to the beach.


Can't argue about it being huge. The owner states the 6 is big enough to cruise around.


Walk around and you'll find beautifull details.


Period typography: loving it.


This? Or an Audi A6 . . .


Compare to an Audi unit! Blimey this car is designed to admire.


Is this to wind up the rear window?

Next: E-type.

Just shows what a low Mercedes is currently on, that 220s is a beautiful thing. cloud9

And it is indeed. Classic Mercedes is here to stay.

There are quite a lot over here and on the roads. 70s/80s SLs and Ss are quite common. As are the W123. But I expect these to be common everywhere. They refuse to die!

E-type:

THE nose.


One of the great classic noses. Although the DS has a fine one as well.


Not sure about the white walls.


Drive by: no sound, just a whizz.

Only one BH:



For many classic car enthusiasts this is the true Brit open sports car.


Plate says this is a 1967 car.

Mercedes:

R107 yum, a popular and low entry summers daily driver. Lots of 'em around.


I'd choose the auto option.


And now for something completely different!


I say!


Another one with the engine in the back . . .


A bit younger . . .


Almost new!


Liking the wheels on this R107.

Next: last Yank bits.

Late C3 Vette.


Regular low emission 350 CID - sweet enough.


Owner fitted the tag 'me and my large penis extension' perfectly.


'65 Stang every summers day.

Done. For the Dutchies: maybe next year and check the website http://www.hetlaatsterondje.com/index.html

Dunno if foreign entries are welcome - this event is 'sold out' within a day! - but if you are interested, please drop me a line.

Cheers, Dinkel
