Donkervoort reunion
Before they moved to the current modern location all Donkervoort cars (the high end Dutch development based on the Lotus Super Seven) were built at the famous location in Loosdrecht, Holland. The ten year anniversary in Lelystad is a reason for Donkervoort to return to the old birth place for  The Donkervoort Historic Weekend (Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th of May) on which days  the entire Donkervoort range since 1978 will be on show. From a nearly historic S8 to a brand new D8 GT. You are very welcome at the Nieuw Loosdrechtse dijk 205a in Loosdrecht, The Netherlands.

Mille Miglia Time!

1956 Maserati A6G 2000 Zagato Competition Berlinetta
The Maserati A6G/2000 was produced from 1954 through 1957 with around 60 examples being created. The coachwork was available from Zagato, Frua and Allemano, each with their own distinct style and purpose. The Zagato built cars were purpose-built road-racers; the Frua-bodied examples were elegant, extravagant, and fashion statements. The Allemano cars were sophisticated, subdued and luxurious. Zagato produced 20 A6G/2000 berlinettas between 1955 and1957, one of which is this example, the 1956 Maserati A6G 2000 Zagato Competition Berlinetta. It comes in Maserati racing red with a beige leather interior. It has a documented racing history including the 1957 Mille Miglia, Coppa Intereuropa, and the 1957 Tour of Sicily (called the Targa Florio today). Only recently the Maserati has received a full nut and bolt restoration by a team of noted Modenese craftsmen and will now be offered by Coys at their Monaco auction on April 30th. Look out for lot number 245!

1959 (?) Berkeley spotted in Holland

Berkeley

On a lazy sunday afternoon re-biking(!) the route of the The 100 Miles we spotted this immaculate restored Berkeley pocket size sports car. With no owner directly available we could only guess for the specs (2 or 4 cylinder) and year of this example. More on the succesfull Berkeley's at MicroCarMuseum.

Do you find an interesting car while on the road, then feel welcome to share your photo with us (click).

Rome last Sunday

Vignale-copyEditor Bart Kleyn, being punished for relying on modern ways of transportation was stuck in Rome, not really a punishment, especially since he had the chance to visit the Fuoriserie car exhibition. Expectations were high, Fuoriserie is organised by the same people who organise the successful Padova fair.
Disappointment couldn't be bigger. One hall was nice, with some local car clubs bringing some nice cars. Your editors choice would have been this 1951 Vignale bodied Aurelia on a B50 platform, original car, in aluminium and with a plexiglas rear window. Car brought in by restorer Auto Nobile. Another hall was partly filled with resellers of parts and literature, not much interesting except a copied user manual for the Aprilia which was purchased at the exorbitant price of € 49,95. The third hall looked more as a used car lot at a dealer with in the back some boom-blasting tuned cars, great if its your taste and if you are already deaf. Stand holders and visitors alike complained about the low number of cars being brought in.

Your editor had been spoiled. Setting out the road for the Via Flaminia he visited the Museo dell Automobile , the Museo Taruffi and the Scuderia Campelloampello where il Giudici (judge, with the Al Capone voice) is looking to complete his Lancia collection with an Aurelia. He was flabbergasted at the sight of the Italian cars available on PostWarClassic.com
