My name is Antoine and I am born in 1980. I am from Belgium; I live in North-West of Brussels
. I work as a software developer in Kraainem, at the East of Brussels
My first language is French, as you see I also speak English, and I have some basic Dutch knowledge.
At the beginning of the IMCDb project I was one of the most active members, so I continued the site when its creator could not follow with all the pictures I was sending and changes that I was requesting
Now I put quite less new vehicles on the site; on the other hand, I still do all the technical stuff.
I was very interested in working on this site since I watch lots of movies, even if they are not especially good movies. I also have some interest in cars in general.
I also collect model cars
, mostly at 1:43 scale. I like Lego
so I made a site similar to IMCDb, but for bricks seen in movies
My website: www.antp.be
I learned to drive (in end 1998 / beginning 1999) on a 1997 Peugeot 205
"Generation" (model launched in 1983, this series was one of the last ones) that belonged to my parents. I continued to drive that one from time to time.
Then in 2001, when I started to work, I bought a 2002 Peugeot 106
I resold the Peugeot 106 to my parents when the Peugeot 205 was destroyed in an accident.
Currently I do not own a car, but I usually drive a 2003 Peugeot 206
SW "Enfant Terrible" owned by the company where I work.
These three cars have the same 1.4 75hp gasoline engine.
The 205 & 106 had an advantage: they had a low weight, so even with this little engine they were fun to drive. The 206 is a little heavy for that engine, but the car is more "stable" when driving on highways so I feel better in that one. And despite its low performance, I still find it quite fun to drive (as anyway there are speed limits on roads...)
With 4-meter length it is still not too hard to park it in the city.
Cars that I drove for some time: Peugeot 106, 205, 206 SW, Toyota Yaris.
And more briefly: Audi A5, Chevrolet Volt, CitroŽn C3 Picasso, Opel Corsa [D], Peugeot 306, 307, 406, 406 Break, 806, Saab 9-3, smart Fortwo, SsangYong Musso, Volvo C30, C70 and V50... (I probably forgot some, but I know that I drove at least all the "-06" Peugeot
I especially Like SAABs, and lots of cars from 70s until early 90s.
I do not have any old car, but I'd like to if I had knowledge to maintain it and a garage to park it.
Among others, my favorite cars are CitroŽn DS, Renault 15/17, Renault 16, VW Scirocco Mk2, CitroŽn XM, Lotus Esprit Turbo, DeLorean, SAAB 900 (and in general all SAABs as said above), Audi Ur-Quattro, Maserati Biturbo, Subaru SVX, '91-'92 Chevrolet Caprice, ...
