I'll bet Jocke and Tony are getting hammered now . . .

. . . in Ontario, with Jim McElreath at the wheel. He started back in the pack but there were so many early retirements that only four other drivers were left on the final lap. A few years ago I was posting here about the race when I made this chance disc

Aston Martin DB7. An old love of mine.

Keep in mind that we are in 1993 / 1994, here, and that we were used to some brutal design for Aston Martin cars, just before the DB 7 was unveiled. So you can imagine my reaction when I saw this car in the newspapers, in 1993. It first came with a 6 Cyli

10 months into it. Greta would hate me. But hey .... quite like the M850i Grand Coupe, particularly for my 444km drives to Frankfurt and back.

You're exactly right! When I drive, I'd probably want a heart rate that's relaxed and yet alert. A car that gives me a very nice and relaxed heart rate, even at high speeds, is invaluable on long trips. I can't say from my mountain of experience, since in

Maserati 3500 GT Scaglietti. Another marvel from the past.

Credit photos: Classic Car. Right hand drive. From 1964. A superb body. The rear part makes me think of a good old Aston DBS from the 70's: A dashboard as they don't make it like this anymore, alas: And a superb clock! Best, Nicolas

Maserati Merak. Something a bit different.

For me, the most desirable and sensuous Maserati is the Ghibli, even more than the 3500 GT, in my opinion. But I can't deny some charm to the Merak, outside and inside. Credit Classic Car: When cars were cars... Best, Nicolas

Test Drove the Mercedes EQS - Disappointed

Retro-grouches have bemoaned the passing of "real cars" since the Stutz Bearcat went out of production. Oldtimers in the 60's complained that GTOs, Shelby Mustangs, and Lincoln Continental convertibles were pale shadows of the grand Duesenbergs and Cords

Test Drove the Mercedes EQS - Disappointed

Was just speaking with a friend to arrange a visit to the showroom. After reading this, I will probably take my time😅. For Daimler, an organization so obsessed with engineering, design and quality, this is really unexplainable sloppiness. I will reserve f

New Alpine A110: What I like a lot, and what I less like...

Let's start with the good surprises: - The new Heritage Color, which is a free option and a magnificent " Orange Coral " . - The revisited block of instruments ( Carplay, GPS, Cell phone, Audio ) which is way much better than the former one. - The front c
