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!
