Winter wonder fun or TLC? What do you do?
The end of the year is approaching. This means the traditional Christmas songs are playing on the radio. Snow is falling and the cars are locked up in our sheds. But there are always a few brave men and of course, women (or shall we call them crazy) who drive through the winter. Next Sunday the 100 miles of Amsterdam will be held on the night of 17 December. More than 50 pre-war cars conquer...
Watch Stanley Mann Racing for a last time
Earlier this week, the news came to us that one of the bastions in vintage WO Bentley's sales, racing and rallying has closed the doors on its garage overnight for the final time. Stanley Mann Racing is well known in the world as one of the first involved in the Bentley racing. As many of you probably know, Stanley passed away last year. Which unfortunately also means that the workshops have come ...
About What is it? Quiz #459L ZIS 101B
There was a catch in last week's quiz, as it wasn't a 'real' pre-war. But most of you noticed it and gave the right answer. Yes, it is a ZIS or ZIL 110 B. A car based on a Packard (that was the pitfall for many of you), something Stalin loved. Even if you don't know the car, you were able to find out more about the car as the persons in it were well known. So, the car is a ZIL 110B. It's a prototy...
Are you taking my job, lady?
This chauffeur must be out of a job after this photo was taken. The lady looks proud and very convinced to drive this car instead of sitting in the back. And we totally agree with her. This looks like a fantastic car to drive! Can anyone identify this big brass machine?Photo by Andy Watt...
An early Tom-Tom
Travelling in the early days of motoring often was a challenging experience. Road signs were absent and society was not equipped for cars travelling over roads for hundreds of miles, where normally only stage coaches would cover distances of more than the few miles from your own village to the market in the next. If you would travel for longer distances, the train was the obvious means of di...

Happy Christmas shopping
December has started so that means Christmas shopping. When doing this, we found the new book of Michael Edwards. Not that long ago, he published a book about De Dion Bouton cars till 1904. We read the first book with joy and reviewed it at Prewarcar.com. But, a new book has just been released! In his new book, he informed us about the De Dion Bouton cars built after that period (from...
The 1900 Horseless Carriage mystery
While searching for information about the 1895 Chicago Times-Herald motorcycle race, Ace Zenek came across this photo on Flickr by Don O'Brien. The caption he posted states the following."1900 Horseless carriage: I probably took the photo somewhere in Oklahoma or Texas during September 1936. My brother and I got out of school for a family trip to Texas when I was in 7th grade that fall. I had a 62...
Not your everyday gathering: 5 Voisins
Earlier we published a feature about how Hubertus became a fan of the Voisin cars. It was clear he wasn't the only one. And we totally agree, it is something special which you don't see that often. To be honest, we haven't seen one on the road yet (only on shows or other events). But Fer Cools was very lucky.A few years back he made the photo above in Troyes and he told us they are all running. Fa...
What is it? Quiz #459
The weekend has just started! Which means.... the quiz is online! This week, it is probably not that hard. Because if you do not know the car itself, you might be able to recognize the persons in it. The photo is sent in by the person who owns a car like this (and probably the only one still around).Can you tell us more about this important piece of history? Please leave your answer in a comment b...
Come aboard my road yacht!
Our Friday Lady looks especially pleased to welcome her gentleman to their luxuriously appointed motorized caravan. And well might she – because this could quite possibly be the first true motorhome.In 1907, many years before this photograph was published in January 1928, Lloyd Osbourne, the American stepson of the famous British author Robert Louis Stevenson, published a novel, “The Adv...
How many people fit in one car?
Going on holiday with a big family can be a bit of a challenge (we know from experience). How to fit everyone in the car, including the dogs, cats, all the clothes and sometimes the tools? We have seen many photos of old cars with stuff packed everywhere. But another solution (a very simple one) is to get yourself a big / bigger car.For example, this photo sent in by Piet Geinaert. The photo is ta...
A good side of Egypt
Egypt is most known for its pyramids. Unfortunately, the last few weeks the country was the subject of an act of terrorism. This tragedy is something we do not want to pay any more attention to. Therefore, we keep it to cars and show you a good side of Egypt. This photo was taken on Sherif Pasha Street (currently Salah Salem) in Alexandra in 1928. What we see here a few cars parked on a sunny day....
An original photograph that just raises questions

A very friendly man sent us this original photograph. He had this wonderful photograph for several years and decided instead of selling it, to share it with us. In fact, he shared it with all of you. You see, those are the people we like a lot at PWC.com. Even though there is no information about the photograph. It would be such a shame to keep the photograph ...

First British Motor Races re-staged at Brooklands circuit
Well, now you know how to start one of those little De Dion Bouton Tricycles, or trikes as the English man likes to call them. Driving them is challenging but still very much doable. Lean a bit in the corners, make sure you overtake the one in front of you, and of you go to the finish line! Well, that might be entirely true but still, it is an interesting thing to see. All those bikes/ cars going ...

Five answers to last week´s Quiz and four of them fond the correct car, that we searched for: The little roadster by Automobiles Colin.

Henk Visscher, Gerd Klioba, Yannic Garcia and Jury-Member Alan Spencer recognized the car as...
