There is much to be said about car collectors but these three things are for certain: each one panders to their own niche, wrangle up a slew of cars that they deem superior and at times, can seemingly be quite a snob about it (although, don’t exclude their merit). The subject of the latest Petrolicious episode is a German-based collector named Thorsten Seitz. The man has a crystal clear vision for the types of Fords he wants in his stable: economy cars that are “rarely altered.”
Seitz told Petrolicious about how he resurrected an old Cortina and keeps an Escort roaring down the road. As a whole, the collector embraces simplicity over complexity in terms of car design. “On old cars, many put exhaust tips, mud flaps, or some chrome trim that doesn’t belong there,” says Seitz. “No, I like to keep it very simple.” Take a look at the visually stunning, eight-minute video above.
