I have made little improvements to the website. The website is now running on the Zend Framework. All cars have pictures again and added one blueprint.

We have launched the new website today. The new site has been completely redesigned. We will add more content and features in the upcoming weeks.


New features:
  • events-page
  • newsletter
  • old pics

During the night of 6 May 2005 a Minerva has been stolen from a garage in Schoten, Antwerp (Belgium). It was as black Minerva Rapide from 1933. Under the hood sits an 8-cylinder motor of 25HP. The chassis number is 87103. Leather in the front, clothing in the rear. Left hand drive.

This vehicle is probably dismantled to sell the parts separately.

There is a reward for the person who can find the car, anonymous tips are welcome too.
