A Fata Morgana is an unusual and complicated form of mirage visible just above the horizon. The term has been derived from an Italian phrase. Often the images are distorted into unrecognisable shapes. Fata Morgana is, however also the name for the club magazine belonging to the Morgan Sports car Club in Holland (MSCCH). It is most certainly not a mirage. Its content reports on interesting and important themes from the Morgan scene, such as the 50th anniversary celebrations planned for the club in 2012 . "The 40 Year MSCCH celebrations". (see events).
We have often reported on interesting subjects concerning classic cars in Holland, not least because Classic cars are not subject to road tax in Holland. This is also reflected in the relatively high number of Dutch entries on our website."Kan ik uw helpe" is more than a polite phrase in the Netherlands. You will very often hear it used in the Service Industry and of course in relation to classic cars. For example take a look at the entry belonging to the Dutch Morgan specialist Machiel Kalf. As has often happens, our first contact with him was more by accident than design (not a road accident I must add!). Indeed it was a chain of unplanned events.It began with a very active Morgan specialist in Germany winning the first prize in our last Christmas competition (the etching of a Bently by Bernd Lehmann). He introduced Mr Kalf to ClassicIndex. He was so pleased with the assistance we gave him in publishing his entry that he invited us to Oudendijk, near Hoorn.
