Drop dead gorgeous Porsche 959 at display. Wow.


Time for lift off to Heteren.


My kind of car: Porsche 964 RS Tribute riot.


Porsche 930 see through. The showroom with contemporary (post 996) Porsches on the left.


The PCG attic is the real King Tut's Tumb: well over a 100 fantastic and special cars at display. Mark leads the way in a 2.5 hour tour.

I love the 50s Pontons. This is a 220 sixpot.


The details on 70s S-class cars are amazing. Check the gutter on this 450 SEL 6.9er.


Adenauer chique.

Ideal classic: small, quick, agile, light, plastic, low maintainance, comfortable, beautiful...


Perfect 80s trio: Delta Integrale, A310 and G model.

In my mind an AMG GT Roadster is the perfect practical daily. R129 SL 55 AMG by Kleemann in the backdrop: 635 brake / 900 Nm.


Nothing beats a classic GT: 450 SLC yum. And you can keep your Ferrari.

Porsche 982 Cayman GTS. My honest opinion: I felt no need whatsoever to lust for a 911.


And it looks better too...


Analog dials!


Brakes are OK for me but I can imagine trackday buffs will need the bigger discs. There's room.

On with the PCG show:

The PCG classic workshop is a museum depot in itself. All kinds of wonderful here: 550 Spyder replica, various 356, early 911 and two 901. It's a miracle we're even allowed to stroll around here.


Insanely beautiful early 356 coupe. A true dream garage car. In my eye this is perfection with a capital P. Sod big power!


Four litre RS anyone?


Let's have another look at the container find 550 Spyder: I can so imagine this to be a V8 eating thing.


Can't get enough of the 959 either...

Panamera GTS Sport Turismo:

In my eye the best proposition Porsche had to offer in 2019.


Wonderful power: 4 litre biturbo 485 hp / 620 Nm plant.


Fantastic color, spacious, practical and quick. This one does not feel too big.

1993 Volvo 850 2.3 10v automatic with just 139k kms on the clock!


Gorgeous MGB GT on wires.


Another mate, another car: Z4 looks the bizz and AMG GT like. I need to do a head-to-head to find out.

May I throw in this lovely SLC:

How much I love an R107 the Coupe version catches my drift. In my eye this is the sensible equivalent to a Longchamp or XJ classic.


Green velours and everything period: I'm a sucker big time!
Thanks for posting.
Such a classy car and look better than ever to my eyes.

Fantastic Mercedes-Benz AMG SL60 6 litre V8: what an absolute jewel of a car.


Another gem is this E50: perfection on wheels. Superb E-class with 5 litre AMG V8. There's just no way modern cars can match the pure class and feel of 90s cars. In my eye the era when the best cars ever were made.


In the 70s when I was a boy a car with hubcaps in the body colour was just sublime. Mercedes made every detail count. Just look at it. Glorious.


And the car that goes along with it. I believe a W114 250. Back in the day the worker drove a 4-pot, the manager a straight 6 and the boss a V8.

This month's Mercedes Enthusiast boasts a repo about a Dutch 57-piece Benz collection.

The original article has photo's by my mate Casper. I only post my own stuff here.


An abundance of Benz. And there's more to come: every issue an article from my hand.
