First video I have watched on here. I thought it was bob on. Great subject matter and fabulous production. Nice one 🙂
This video proves that “simple” is not the same thing as “easy”. Mad props! But did I see a surfboard? Surfing off the North coast of Germany? Brrr! Oh, right… simple, not easy.
I love the light grey Taunus he had in his garage. My dad had a 1963 with a four speed on the tree, this was the car in which I learned to drive.
German efficiency and focus at its best!
Petrolicious never fails to impress me and here, you even surprise me with one very….. unique man! Very special, very enjoyable. I don’t really understand this guy (‘I don’t speed’) but I love the fact that he knows what he likes, and he knows why he likes it! Great job as usual!

He doesn’t like to speed, but he does like to accelerate!
I really like Thorsen. I do. I would enjoy having him for a neighbor and seeing how his projects progress, But you know, for a guy who doesn’t need speed, there was the ‘super trap’ exhaust the side by side, two barrel Weber carbs. The wheels, in many cases, were cast aluminum. So he may think that he doesn’t need speed, he is certainly tooled up for it.
Beautiful cars!In the interview, behind you, there are a beautiful audi (It’s and audi 100?). My father had two of them, and i really like these cars, the car where I learned to drive.
Super nice collection.
I have fond memories of riding with my father through the twisty roads each year to Laguna Seca to see the Monterey Historics back in the early 1980’s.
I always loved that car. Super nimble and super reliable. It could go forever.
Of all the cars that went through, that one should have been one of the keepers, for sure. It was Rangoon Red.
