About ViaRETRO

ViaRETRO – the classic venue on the web

ViaRETRO was born on December 28, 2012. However, the story is much longer, as Søren Navntoft and Claus Ebberfeld have both been blogging from even before it became fashionable. ViaRETRO is the merger of the weblogs SpectraMOTO.com and MotorRetro.com, both of which despite the .com addresses were only in Danish. Right from the start ViaRETRO therefore contained well over a thousand articles – in Danish, that is.

ViaRETRO also features an English version, including selected articles from the Danish section and expanding with unique content on a regular basis. And what is it all about? Quite simple;

ViaRETRO is first and foremost about the joy of classic cars: The rare, beautiful and exotic – and the obscure, the famous and quirky, and of course everyday cars from a bygone era. “Everything was better in the old days – except the Internet,” as Ebberfeld so beautifully puts it. And that is why ViaRETRO also is about everything else. Minimalism and decadence, childlike enthusiasm and tons of heavy nerdy stuff, the love to beautiful forms and fine art and lifestyle, culture, transport and combustion engines, on ferries and bridges and roads. Mostly from before the tape recorder came along and ruined everything.

ViaRETRO aims to:

1.    Broaden the knowledge of Classic Cars
2.    Communicate Danish and international automotive history.
3.    To cover Classic Car events, including historic motorsport events at home and abroad
4.    To be a car club meetingplace on the Internet
5.    Organize rallies, meetings and events

ViaRETRO is owned and maintained by Søren Navntoft & Claus Ebberfeld.
