It was earlier this year that I first heard of the Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat Prestige 2017 classic car event and I immediately knew I would want to go. On their site it is described as an event for all fans of vintage vehicles – like a Concours d’Elegance. This year the event was held on 23rd & […]

The Monaco car event Cars & Coffee Monaco held one of their meetings at Opéra de Monte Carlo the last Sunday of August, and we saw that as a good opportunity to get our BMW Alpina E30 C2 2.5 Cabriolet washed and ready for a day trip to Monaco. I have driven several very eye-catching […]

The Goodwood Festival of Speed – FoS – is one of those car events that I almost felt ashamed I hadn’t ever attended. On more than one occasion among friends I have seen a truly surprised expression followed by the words “You never been to Goodwood?!”. It is now clear that the car festivals at […]

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 […]

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 […]

“Do you want to drive the Ferrari to a music video shoot?” was the question classic car dealer Harri Asunta asked me a day in August. He knew I liked the car as I already had it for a weekend earlier, and if someone asked me do I want the keys back to an F355 […]

A journey with a car always starts with a key. There are the times when you are handed over the keys to a car that is truly special. Sometimes the journey with it can last for weeks, or it might only last for a few minutes. Sometimes you hand back the keys to a car […]

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 […]

A first impression can be enough to feel butterflies in your stomach. A short drive can be enough to make you want more. A day with a car can be enough to get attached to it. But have the car for a full weekend and you might return the keys in love. Especially if your […]

How do you picture Monaco in your head? To really capture the feeling of the good life in Monaco, in just one single shot, I think you would need to get at least four things in that pic. A very nice looking car – supercar or classic, a big yacht, the Monaco skyline in the […]

My next stop in Tuscany was 5* boutique hotel Castello di Casole in Casole d’Elsa, located 60 km south from Florence. If you drive the straight route, which I now did to save time. But there are a few scenic options if you want to extend the drive and enjoy a few better roads. It […]

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 […]
