Dutch Cars

A few cars have been made in the Netherlands like Volvo S40, Smart Forfour and Mitsubishi Carisma. However, when I think of Dutch cars, I think of two brands DAF and Spyker.

Matchbox made a 1904 Spyker like in the film “Genevieve“in their Yesteryear range.

The only Dutch car I have is an OSI DAF City Car made by Corgi with numerous opening parts, a sliding door on one side and a conventional door on the other.

  1. I don’t think I have ever seen so many moving parts at that scale. What a unique model that Corgi OSI DAF is. That’s a great find! Are the doors on some kind of sliding hinge? It’s very elaborate isn’t it.
