Now that we've passed the 100 marker, we give you some slack and show the dwelling of this smart hobbyist, located on a rainy Saturday afternoon near the Belgian-Dutch border in the little village Waterland-Oudeman. Smart guy, as he is saving gas with his daily driver to finance the fifties guzzler parked in his carport. You will have no problem identifying this one so you will have some spare time to go through your archives or photo albums and provide us with some fresh material for the next 99 issues.
But before that, make the best of #101. Not by easy come- easy go 'copy-pasting' from web sources. Trivial details are highly appreciated. Send in before Monday 26 January and you may become the winner of this puzzle, which would earn you the infamous PostWarClassic T-shirt! Be careful though, check the Rules under 'Read More'. Results will be published next Saturday, January 31.
Earlier this week, the start of the infamous Rallye Monte Carlo took place - the 83rd edition to be precise. But once more there wasn’t much snow on the cols and passes to be found. A pity, as snow used to be one of the aspects, which made ‘the Monte’ into the spectacle it was, with plenty of space to put innovative ideas into practice.
There was plenty of snow in 1963’s Monte, when Erik Carlsson steered his ungainly Saab heroically to the first place. Small cars really showed their advantages over bigger ones there and then. But not for Baroness Ewy Rosqvist, shown above with navigator Ursula Wirth, who tackled the gruelling drive in her trusty Mercedes-Benz 220 SE - admired by men. More then a handful, we think. But the baroness never the less managed to come home 16th overall – fast enough to secure that year’s Coupe des Dames. A lady to our heart.
