|I've been reading for hours now on this forum , time to introduce myself. My name is Cees, I'm a handyman and my company is called SuperCees, hence my nickname.
My avatar shows a bit of my former 2cv, which I traded with a HY van from 1949, it's now driving in France. It was covered with carpet, before that with road maps, you might have seen that on the World Meeting in Scotland.
Car enthousiast for many years now, have owned more than 30 cars I think. 8 different cars in 1 year was the record. A lot of Citroens: 2cv, acadiane, cx, ds, xantia, xm, right now a id20 from 1969 and a 2cv6. A lot of other cars: Dodge W200, Fiat 500, Simca 1100, BMW 635 CSi, Lada, Austin Maxi 1750 HL, American Ford, Buicks, Chevrolets, Cadillac de Ville convertible, Jeep Cherokee Chief.
I bought my wife a Mercedes 300 diesel with automatic gearbox, save on the road for our 3 weeks old son.
My biggest interests are the older american cars with the huge V8 engines and the 2cv.
Soon I'll start with the 2cv, cutting and welding. Ideas enough in my head.
The interest in the american cars and the 2cv will be combined in a project that will start after we have found a farmhouse with a huge shed in the provence of Drenthe, I need space to build a MonsterDuck. In Holland, the nickname of the snail is duck, and in stead of a monstertruck I want to create a MonsterDuck, based on a Dodge W200 chassis with a wheelbase of 333 centimeters. So it will become a 4 door pick up, or a extended van...
Soon I'll post some pictures.
