A Stunningly Classic Car Convoy…

It’s usual for me to have my camera in my lap as I sit in the passenger seat of our car.

I usually have subject matter galore but sometimes it’s Himself or the kids who start shouting requests when something unusual comes into view.

Such was the case when we were in the Dutch province of Limburg three years ago.

It was Himself who first pointed out a classic car coming towards us, and then Little Mr who started screaming excitedly in my ear that there were more following it, so please make sure to photograph them all.

We notice that there are a sort of semi-circular disks on the front of each of the cars which contains various words and numbers, the only part of which we can read being: “Sittard Klassiek”.

I look up Sittard Klassiek on the web and find their (Dutch language only) website which shows that they are a classic car club that make regular displays and tours where apparently all of the car are pre-1970. We seem to have come across one of these tours and we all agree, what an impressive group they make! Apart from the Volkswagen Beetles, I don’t really know what the other makes of the cars are, but they are beautiful and clearly looked after with a ton of love and care.
