Castle tour of the Dutch Visa Club, October 14, 2001
|October 14, the Dutch Visa Club held a interesting tour around the castles of Aarle-Rixtel, Helmond, Gemert, Heeswijk and Sint-Oedenrode, all in the Province of Noord-Brabant. It was a fine and sunny October Sunday and a quite a few members and their cars turned up. A colourful crusade of Visas and related cars brightened up the beautiful landscape, and made the locals turn their heads.|

|Time to stop and visit the castle of Gemert.||
Not bad, but no big deal for people who live by the slogan "My car is my castle"...
|Passers by stopped to have a look at the cars: especially in convoy, our cars do not fail to impress.||Engine and paint of this '87 11RE are virtually as new!|
