This is an odd one: Citroen Traction Avant pick-up with a HY rear axle.





Dunno if it's still for sale.

In 2017 I drove this immacualte Moroccan Red 1992 Jaguar XJS 6 litre V12. I personally prefer a 500 or 560 SEC to this big cat but just look at this jewel.

Compared to the big German the Jag is so much more of a style icon and purist statement.


Of course it's an automatic. Kick down at 60 gives tremendous boat-like acceleration to infinte speeds.

The Dutch post-war situation is called De Wederopbouw and was a significant step up in economy. Small shops grew big due to small lorries. A mate has a collection of 26 and I am a regular visitor:


The sheer beauty of a simple badge:

This FIAT carries a ladder on its back. Gorgeous one-off.

Great pics, I spent a lot of time in Holland in the late 1990's - early 2000's and the number of classics on the road always made me smile.

Great pics and a great style.

Going back in time with this kitcar flashback:

Bas is the Dutch specialist. He imports RHD cars from the UK mostly.


Honda Fireblade powered 500 kg kit. Where's the bonnet? Ow, well...


This thing is next to a riot. Sticky, agile, shoots like a rocket and sounds like a herd of metal wasps when in full anger. And that's the way to drive it: full throttle from corner to corner.
