why do we do this

Dedication for cars is in our genes

In my childhood I had the privilege to sit on the velour seats of a Range Rover Classics on the way to school and to the summer cottage for summer holidays. That experience and my family’s dedication for cars has led to irreversible results. In my case it’s called Clasanteri. 

The devotion for cars runs in the family. My father got it from his uncle, who became known as the mechanic for the rally legend Timo Mäkinen. He tuned the Minis that brought the first wins in Monte Carlo race to Finland. Also in my father’s career British cars have played a huge role and by the looks of things I’m not an exception. 

I have worked with cars during my whole career. I have worked as a car journalist in different media, gained experience in a car shop and developed and commercialised mobility services. At the same time my own beloved classic car hobby has taken me to this point. 

The world is changing and so too is our daily travelling. The classic cars are important because their unique history is filled with our personal stories, intriguing technology and amazing driving experiences. Even if technology is going further classic cars are the first thing that people want to save and restore – some people are even turning them into electric cars. In many cars the original technology has such an important role in keeping the value and character that it’s not an option to update it.

The aim of the classic car is not to solve future mobility, but to bring pleasure and restore a part of the culture. History has shown that classic cars are also good investments, for money and for you who want to collect and enjoy about the moving sculpture and unique driving experiences. The classics are never forgotten.
