Last Thursday I met up with two friends who came from Italy to Monaco to have a stroll around the first edition of a new car show in Europe, SIAM 2017 Monaco International Motor Show. Of course when there is something new you want to see it. The show is described on the website as […]

Yesterday was a sunny day spent in Monte Carlo with friends for the first Cars & Coffee Monaco event for this year. My two friends Federico and Jacopo, both who write for the site Escape on Wheels, were down south from Italy to follow and shoot the Rallye Monte Carlo Historique event. I had not […]

So why did I end up on a Mercedes-Benz G-Class off-road trip in the Scottish Highlands, trying to make it coast to coast in a black G-Wagen? To quote the roadbook, “Over the next couple of days, we will be attempting something no one, to our knowledge, has done before: to drive motor cars from […]

I had a round trip I had to do from Nice to Zürich at some point before end of November, so last Sunday morning I left Nice early in the morning and drove towards Zürich but with a stop in Milan first. I had a good reason for that stop. The Duemila Ruote (Italian for […]

“Did you ever go on a great off road adventure?” was the question in an email I received. My reply was no. I have been off road driving a few times in past, but an adventure? In my opinion an adventure is a journey to the unknown. That is what I would like to call […]

Two guys who run the site “People with Penelope” are out on a really cool road trip right now – it is Mongol Rally 2016. This event is an annual 10K miles rally for charity through Europe and Asia in “tiny cars”. With tiny cars it means that you can only enter the rally with […]

Here is a big photo gallery of some more cars from the 2016 Concours d’Elegance held at Harjattula Manor. I have to highlight in this post a few of my own favourites. Most of the cars I liked the most I already showed in the Winners post. But there were of course also a lot […]

When I had the F355 for a drive it was my job to take it to the Concours d’Elegance 2016 (www), a big car event that is held every year at Harjattula Manor in Kakskerta, close to the city Turku. It is the largest annual classic sportscar event in Finland, and the event is organized […]

Since I had a yellow 991 GT3 for Top Marques Monaco 2015, it was pretty clear I wanted to arrive in a yellow Porsche for Top Marques Monaco 2016 also. We will see what 2017 will look like, if it again will be a yellow Porsche, or something else. But when a few of my […]

Here is the second gallery from Cars & Coffee Brescia. I had more photos than I thought. When the cars started to leave Corte Francesco I parked myself and my dog next to a bush by the exit, and took photos of cars leaving. So for that reason I will include as many of those […]

Like I wrote in the post “The four Porsches in twelve days road trip“, I did sign up for Cars & Coffee Brescia 2016. I did not want to miss the event, it was great last year. I was going to arrive that Sunday to the event with a new racing yellow Porsche 991.2 Carrera […]

On the C-Class Coupé press drive in Costa del Sol I got the chance to test drive three C Class Coupé cars in two days: one diesel, one petrol and of course also my own favourite – a C63 AMG. But the first car I got in to for a test drive on nice roads was a 204 hp C 250 […]

A while ago Mercedes-Benz Finland sent me an invitation to a two day C-Class Coupé press event in Spain. So last Thursday I took a flight to Costa del Sol (where I have lived one year with my mother, but this was 16 years ago), where we during two days got the chance to test […]

When I got two hashtag stickers for the Porsche 991 GT3 before going out on the trip – #gt3tour and @getpalmd – it was mainly with Monaco in mind. I knew that during the dates of Top Marques there would be car spotters in every corner of the streets around Monte Carlo. I was hoping […]

I have found so many incredibly beautiful photos online of the racing yellow Porsche 991 GT3 that I on my #gt3tour took to Cars & Coffee Brescia, the first event of the year organized by Cars & Coffee Italy. Many of the shots so good they they need to be shared and I also want […]
