Interludes at Interclassics

Interludes at Interclassics
Just three images that struck us at Interclassics in Maastricht. First our old friend Dietmar Gotz had put one of his tractors in the spot light. You've probably seen his Miura with 'Sexiest car in the world' sticker on its front bumper (it was parked next to it) many times before yet; this time it stood in the tractor's shadow. Some yards further down, dealer Classic Park, had another Lamborghini on display. This was a Countach, parked back-to-back with an Alfa 6C Freccia d'Oro, highlighting the difference in rear end styling. From perfectly round to extremly edgy in just a couple of decades. Fascinating. Finally, Misker Classic Cars, had an Austin Princess (or was it simply 'Princess'?) on display, which they'd sold new when they were a BL dealer in the 1970s. In fact it's a one-owner car, which made a superb break in between all those Jags and Porsches.

Tough to crack car puzzle #150

Tough to crack car puzzle #150
Hoorah! The first puzzle car of 2017, and the 150th since we started this series of car crackers. So, what have we got here? That's up to you. We have blurred out the number plate of today's puzzle car and there is a good reason for that, too. There was no name on it, but still the letters would immediately direct you to the direction of this car. We're not giving it away. Yes, it can be found on the world wide web easily but as so often you'll have to know where to search for. And, no, those wheels are not a clue. Before you enter your answer under 'Comments' be sure to check the Rules under Read More. For now: have a good weekend!

Šerlišský’s snowy Škoda

Šerlišský’s snowy Škoda
You were amazingly fast to crack the location of our Friday Lady two weeks ago. That pretty young thing with her Duetto was photographed in Sestriere indeed. Well done. It made us look even harder for the whereabouts of today’s image. A gem of an image, if you ask us. The girl, her hair and dress, the location plus the car - a Škoda 110 R Coupe – all seem unquestionably Czech. Not to mention the font type used. But where in Czechoslovakia exactly? We were a mere google search away from the answer. ‘Šerlišský Mlýn’ is a ski resort on a stone’s throw from the southern Polish border, with the Šerlišský Mlýn Hotel as it’s epicentre. It started as a sawmill with some mountain huts and a lodge, but at around 1902 the mill was rebuilt as a hotel and it has functioned as such ever since. The Mill now even turns out to have its own Facebook page, and if you look at the page you’ll see it’s placed in ferry tale-like snowy surroundings. Now. Who is going to recreate that fabulous Škoda publicity shot?

Big Vic back in his old Porker

Big Vic back in his old Porker
Got nothing at hand and long for some good old motor sport sensation? The Autosport International Show, opening tomorrow at the NEC in Birmingham may be just the ticket. They come up with a celebration of 50 years of Rallycross at their Live Action Arena, with 10 classic racers doing their thing. Among them the Porsche 911R which won the first ever Rallycross race at Lydden Circuit in 1967, as seen above. What’s more: the car will once again be driven by Vic Elford (still the same), who took it to victory five decades ago. Love it!
