The Aston Martins at Cars & Coffee in Wassenaar, the Netherlands
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:
Taking Agent #002 to Monaco and back
I have just returned from a great trip in “Agent #002”, my Cobalt Blue V12 Roadster. Six days of driving, from Amsterdam to Monaco and back, 3,000 kilometers in total! The trip was organized by Cars and Business, a Dutch car club for owners of sports cars and super cars of all brands, not only Aston Martins. 2 Astons (my V12 Roadster and a DBS Volante), 3 Ferraris, 3 Mercs, 3 Porsches, 1 Audi and 1 Rolls, driving from the Netherlands to Luxembourg, through France, through Switzerland, then Italy, back to France, to finally arrive in Monaco. So please excuse the occasional german or italian cars appearing the pictures below 🙂
The Astons at the Spring Event 2013
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.
17 Aston Martins gather at Dutch “Power Beauty Soulmates” meeting
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.
