Spotted in Aalsmeer Holland, Riley RMA.


It's like a small painting.  Typical Dutch scenery, yet nearly impossible to find nowadays. A wood panelled farmhouse. Flag in top (no not for the Spanish football team, but for a graduated kid, that's why the schoolbag is there as well) The family is living upstairs to make room for projects like the originally to Holland delivered RMA saloon. Outside the photo on the left is a parts RMA waiting to donor whatever is needed & available.

Spotted in Clohars Carnoët, Brittany

1950-1955 (? can you date the car exactly?) Renault Ulitaire (utility van) seen at the Place de L’Église in Clohars Carnoët, Brittany.
The owner and restorer of the car runs the local Quincaillerie of the town.
He told us that it has taken him 20 years to restore it.
Note the original RNUR (Regie Nationale des Usines Renault) radiator badge. Here is a nice link on  "utilitaires françaises ... "

The mystery Aprilia before it lost its nose. (UPDATE: sliding pillars?)

Lancia_1953_Aprilia_germanyIt took nearly a month but the right people were reached and the result is there:
" It is the 1100cc Lancia Special that HansFischhaber campaigned in the 1953 German sportscar championship. (For racing the windscreen was of course replaced by an aeroscreen.) The car was crashed at the second round at the Avus on July 12 and Fischhaber reverted to his old 1500cc car for the rest of the season. However, the1100cc car was not scrapped, but rebuilt with a new nose. This is probably what gave rise to the rumor that two cars were built." See Peter Vack's Full report at Veloce Today
