Re: Classic cars on the road

This summer in La Baule (France), I heard of a classic car gathering on a Sunday AM. Slight drizzle unfortunately (Brittany is not far) about 10 cars there, nothing exceptional until a very old guy turned up in a 1912 Le Zebre !! HE is almost as old as his car but what a beautiful sight. When he sta...

Re: Classic cars on the road

At the 120th anniversary of the first uphill race in Chanteloup les Vignes, I saw this pretty rare Toyota 2000 GT.

Really a beautiful car

Re: Classic cars on the road

on the way to last week LE Mans 24h, I passed this magnificent and so rare to see being driven Ferrari Daytona. It turned out we were sharing the same "Parking Blanc" I chatted briefly with the owner and upon taking a picture of the dashboard, he invited me to sit down in it. IMG_4135.jpg ...

Re: Ceramic Coatings

A friand of mine just did his brand new Porsche GT3 with that and the result is stunning. He then asked for an appointment to do his other Porsche (964 from 25 years) and the guys denied as it only gives best results on a brand new paint. Unless the car has been resprayed recently using latest paint...

I attended the now traditional meeting on Sunday morning in Place Vauban in Paris.

Re: On the road

it happened to me once (about 25 years ago) while driving a well tuned Mini (the real mini !!) with 140 hp. I was doing 160 kph on the left lane when I came behind a BMW 7 series with a guy driving 130 and smoking a cigar. He was not watching his mirror so I used the Mini little horn to wake him up ...

Drive it, understand it, find the things that need to be worked on. these cars were expensive when ne...
