Hello everyone, my name is Aadjan van Holst from Northland, New Zealand, and this is the story of my old Porsche. I became interested in cars and motor racing at a very young age. I fell in love with the a Porsche 911 at age 10 when I saw a black Carrera outside my dad's workshop. The shape, the dimensions and the sound and the look of these cars was incredible to me. From that moment on I was hooked.

I wish I could say I grew up learning how to wrench for my father, but in reality it was very much a self-taught skill. I began my petrolhead ways tinkering with a number of cars. However, a few years in, I began to losing interest in working on modern cars. I found little satisfaction from driving my completed projects and yearned for something more pure. This is when the Datsun 240Z came into my life.

I'm 17 years old I’d like to share a few stories about my little classic car. My dad and I share it, but I can count the number of times I've seen him with it on one hand… Anyway, it's a 1958 Fiat 500 Jolly. We initially acquired it for use out in Sag Harbor, NY, but after we stopped going there, we brought it back home to Oklahoma City, where it lives.

I’ve always liked things with wheels—I really don't know why—trains, cars, bikes, I like it all. That changed eight years ago when my mom met my now-stepdad, who introduced me to European cars. When I met my stepdad, I thought Jaguars were just boring old man's cars… then I saw his 1963 Jaguar E-Type for the first time and all of that changed. That was when I first started to take an interest in European cars

This is an MGB Mk 1, Tartan red with a black interior and red piping, as-finished from the factory in Abingdon, Oxfordshire when it was built in February 1963. The MGB was only first shown to the public at exhibition in the summer of 1962, making this car an early example. The car and I live in Sarpsborg, in the southeastern part of Norway—a landscape that offers lots of nice roads for classic cars.

We found this particular Toyota MR2 in a barn in the Estonian countryside. We did some necessary work to it to get it running, competed in a few rallies, but then left it standing for 6 years. Last October, one of us had the idea to build a Group B-inspired rally car. One thing led to another, and soon we realized that we had this unused MR2 with some Group B roots: a version of the car was the basis for the Toyota 222D Group S rally car prototype.
