Oldtimer fest goodies:

Who dares to get out in a Bond Bug?!


Gold looks good on this 911.


Scary as hell as well: BMW Isetta


Dutch Highway Police had these from the mid 60s to mid 80s.


Probably the most copied rep over here in Holland.

Porsche 911T 1968 modded to RSR specs:

This T looks cute but is in fact a beast.


Another day at the office.


Genuine rally car and I'd have it a s a daily although it's quite thirsty: 250 brake coming from a 2.7 litre with massive Webers on.

Kit car heaven: in front the Vauxhall racing Seven track car driven by owner Bas.


A modern take on the Morgan Threewheeler and there's a Ginetta - I think a G27 - to drool at.


I think this is a Sylva Fury. And yes, on the right sits a GTM.


Two GTM kits and one of many takes on the Lotus Seven theme. Ultima in the back!


A closer look at the Ginetta jewel.

Smartphone snaps, sorry.

Nico Ockhuisen Mercedes-Benz collection:




Nico has one of the worlds finest MB collections and every car is original, has low mileage and is driven 50 kms twice a year. Just stunning...

Renault Alpine A310. This is a mint one. Bit of an overlooked car. The owner triggered me to say his car is a better driver than any of the 911 Porsches he had driven over the 25 years. And yeah... it is!


V6 in the rear is not an exciting engine but the handling of this gem is something else.


Typical 70s interior. Excellent ergonomics.


Small wheels with TRX Michelin makes for a rally experience.


Try and find a good one: difficult!

Just had a skim through this excellent thread which I think ought to be retitled 'Dinkel is a jammy b*****d'... biggrin

The Bitter CD reminds me of the Maserati Indy from the rear, a very tidy and well proportioned car. Only ever seen one in the flesh at the NEC, I wonder how many there are...?

If I had to pick one car to take home from the entire thread (so far) it would probably be the Dino 308GT4, it's long been a favourite of mine and its Urraco origins make it a very different offering from Ferrari, they don't all have to be front engine V12s as far as I'm concerned. I've watched John Pogson's youtube clip on his Dino so many times it's ridiculous... wink

Most Bitters are in Germany. The Dino is a treat and pleasure to drive. Not the fastest thing but still: Targa Florio all over. Thx.

Trio Porsche 356: these drivers don't care if it rains wink

Fantastic restauration 'from scratch'


Epic story of a 15 year old who became a 356 connaisseur and is an authority at 24


Lovely patina on this 356 Coupe preserved 'as is'.

Mitsubishi Evo 6 love:

At speed... which is an easy feat.


At ease... which is difficult as this car is as addictive as anything else.

Visiting Von Schmidt:

Frank


Epic interior of this Von Schmidt 5 car.


About one month before the presentation of the Von Schmidt 5 car.


Frank does bespoke 964 backdates and the quality stands out.

Porsche 911 GTS Cabrio:

With 450 brake on tap it's hard to explore all that power. I'd pick a 964 Turbo for the money.


Driving with the top down in november was no problem at all.


Big massive brakes keep the immense speedy Porsche safe.
