Oldandyoungtimer, Classics24 and CCFB (Classic Cars + Fast Beauties) started out of love for classic cars.
Since the beginning of the 80’s 20st centuray, till today Victor has been involved in classic cars, A photographer he used to work for owned a large collection of merely Italian thoroughbreds. Victor had the opportunity to just choose from whatever model he preferred to drive. Hence you could find him driving Montreals (he could find 4 of them) or a rare Fiat 1500 Ghia to his photoshoot.
Those were the days. Victor drove around Amsterdam in his Fiat 600, yes, he was a daredevil!
In the pre-internet era, people had to rush to the newspaper shops to buy the Saturday’s paper: to look for gems like the Porsche 356 or Montreals, not many people were interested back then…. These cars were underrated and surpsringly cheap.
When the internet appeared, an acquaintance of Victor claimed Classics.nl and turned it into a hobby-site, advertising some of his customers' classics.
Victor obtained the domain himself in 2002 and transformed the site into an advanced modern website, catering not only classic cars, but cameras, watches, LP-albums etc. as well. Classics.nl evolved into a streamlined website exclusively catering for cars, bikes and boats in 2007. In the meanwhile we obtained many URL's in many languages.
At this moment we have advertisers from many parts of the world. The site has sections for cars, motorbikes, mopeds, boats and the site is still expanding.
Classics: Passion for the past!
