Why the Ford Capri RS is becoming more and more expensive

To teach the people who doubted the capabilities of the Ford Capri a lesson, Ford released the Capri 2600 RS in 1970.

For those who have always wanted to explore rivers and lakes with their car, the 1960’s Amphicar 770 is the right choice.

Classic cars at the IAA: Is that possible? - A Retromotion report

In its reports of the IAA 2019, the press criticised the event quite a lot: This year’s event was not coined by “real cars”, but by technological nonsense and soulless concepts.

Unlike the other halls, this hall showed exactly what the IAA should be about: The love for cars. [...]

The Maserati Khamsin - an underestimated classic

The early 1970s were the era of mid-engine sports cars. But for those, who preferred classic coupés with a front engine layout, the Maserati Khamsin was an appealing option at the time.

Fiat Panda - an affordable classic car?

Classic cars are usually not exactly cheap. Even though they are tax-privileged, their higher gas consumption, expensive spare parts and the higher cost of maintenance make classic cars quite a pricey possession. And the cost to buy a classic car in the first place, should also not be underestimated. But fear not, because there are also cheaper options. The small Fiat Panda is a great example. [...]
