This year’s second Cars & Coffee meeting of the Dutch Cars & Business club was held on Sunday May 5. The weather was amazing, so this time over 50 members (and their cars) gathered in Wassenaar, at the “de Wittenburg” castle. Many exotic cars were present, including six Aston Martins: a DBS, a DBS Volante, three different V8 Vantages and one V8 Vantage Roadster. What? No red V12 Vantage in Fire Red or blue V12 Roadster? Nope, not this time. For this meeting I decided to bring my Black and Yellow italian beauty, front left in this photo:
Last Saturday, on April 13, the 2013 edition of the Spring Event was held at the Weeze Airport in Germany. My wife and I were there, the misses driving our yellow italian thingy, while I took the red V12 Vantage. Several other Aston Martins were present at the event, including a V8 Vantage, a V8 Vantage Roadster (in Vicks Blue!), a DB9 Volante and a very nice DBS Volante. Sadly, or maybe not, I was too busy enjoying my cars on the tarmac to take pictures (stay tuned for a video of my attempts at drifting the V12 Vantage!). But luckily hundreds of other photographers were present, so here’s a selection of their photos of the Aston Martins at the Spring Event.
The “Power Beauty Soulmates” (or PBSM) is a Dutch Aston club that meets every first Sunday of the even months. So last Sunday, April 7, PBSM members were invited to meet at the GeoFort in Herwijnen. The weather was great, so a lot of Aston Martins turned up, 17 in total. The owners of the GeoFort let us park our cars on the fort area itself, resulting in a nice row of shiny Astons. Here’s a selection of the pics I took.
Last Saturday, September 29, the thirteenth edition of the Cars for Charity event “Droomrit voor het leven” (Dream ride for Life) was held in the Netherlands. The first edition took place in 2000. A student from the IVA business school decided to combine sport cars and children with health problems. For one day, children between the ages of 12 and 17, can forget their illness and have the day of their lives as a passenger in a true dream car. ‘Droomrit voor het leven’ is an annual event and only 50 cars can participate. Brand or year do not matter, what matters is that the cars are exclusive (so a limited amount of Porsches :-)) and that the children see them as dream cars. This years’ list of cars showed a massive amount of Aston Martins, including two very colorful V12 Vantages, Alwin’s Fire Red and his Flame Orange brother.
You can make anything you can imagine with LEGO. Including Aston Martins! On the MOCpages you get an overview of all creations LEGO and the miniatures are surely not limited by imagination. You just need to have lots of building blocks and spare time on your hands. And know your Astons of course to build it to perfection.
