Sad to see that the Ford collection of  Piet den Hartogh in Holland is going to be broken up. The collection which was at one time the largest private Ford museum in the world has been closed for a year and a half. Mr den Hartogh died in 2011 and his family has decided to sell the collection.

  1. One man and his Mustang – UK – I'm just a man with a Classic 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe and an ever increasing collection of car detailing products to keep it clean. When I first started this blog this is what I wrote: "I had bought a project car that had been neglected, set fire to, rusted and abused. As a result of all that the car needed a bare metal strip down, a nut and bolt restoration." Four and a half years later the car was completed, on the road and shown at the UK's premier Classic Car Show, everything that was done to my car is documented here. I now have the privilege to drive one of America's most recognised cars and a true Icon, the Ford Mustang. I'm still sane after the blood, sweat and tears, so would I do it again? Oh yes!

    That is some collection.

      Yes, I’m a bit miffed as I used to work in Holland and it was on my list to visit and as always never got around to it 🙁
