The owner of the R107 Mimosa Yellow

Hi, my name is Wilma Stenzen from the Netherlands and I own the R107 Mimosa Yellow.

It was my younger sister who called me up in 2012 telling me there was a car for sale in my favourite colour. I visited the garage that had the car for sale and after a test drive I was impressed with the comfort and ride quality, and especially with the power of the six cylinder engine.

I bought that car because it had also the right colour and decided to accept the risks that come with buying an old car, even though it was to become my daily driver

Driving in the car and the mimosa yellow color were for me the decisive reason for the purchase!

For me, the R107 is not only a daily driving car.

As a member of a number of car clubs I also drive for fun, which I especially enjoy with the top down. As you may know, in the Netherlands we do not always have blue skies.

At the technical club events the car can always expect to receive some technical support from the other club members. That I think is also one of the reasons that technically the car is in such great condition. Most often the car receives maintenance before any damage can occur.

Finished.

At club road trips there are also always some hands to help out.
