For Transport get a Transit!

Ford Transit 1965
It’s hard to imagine, but the Ford Transit is already in production since 1965. It did all kinds of jobs for you, but the Transit was also immensely popular with the bands of the 1960s and 70s. Roadies could get all their gear in the back including the band members! Seen here are Brian Poole and the Tremeloes, still famous for their hit single “Silence is golden”. Like the Transit, of which up to date some 6 million are made, Brian Poole is still going strong!

A Falcon in Wood

fThe Car by Marisol
Some people have a totally different look at our hobby. Simply called “The Car” it’s a sculpture mainly made of wood by Marisol, a Parisian born artist by the name of Maria Sol Escobar. She made this statue of a Ford Falcon in 1964 when she became influenced by contemporary pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.

A day for a party!

1956 Cadillac
Every year on April 30, the Dutch celebrate the Queens birthday, in honor of their Queen Beatrix. It’s a day full of festivities, parties, boot sales and of course car parades. Editor RB joined a local club of car enthusiasts in a trip to Zierikzee, a small historic town in the Dutch province Zeeland. Some thirty cars of all shapes and sizes gathered on the market place and attracted a huge crowd.

REPORTERS WANTED: you are welcome to report about your local classic event. Just list your photo and story at Spot a Classic.

Jolly good fun at the beach

fiat-bonhams-100430
These days Monaco must be bursting at the seams with antique and classic cars. No less than three auction companies have their sales this weekend, one of them being Bonhams, who brought a whole fleet of beauties to Monte Carlo. One that caught our fancy and certainly feels at home on the Riviera is this 1970 Fiat 500. It’s a replica of the humble Fiat 500 and 600 saloons that were converted by Ghia into a ‘beach car’. Its wicker seats are just comfortable enough to transport you from your yacht to the beach club. Find it this afternoon at Bonhams “Les Grandes Marques a Monaco”.
