Tulpenrallye 2008 Tulip Rally

In 2008 the classic Tulip Rally returned to Annecy, France, to commemorate the fact that 60 years ago the famous Dutch rally driver Maus (Maurice) Gatsonides (later known for the speed cameras that bear his name) and French rally ace Marc Angelvin came up with the idea of the Tulip Rallye whilst sitting on the shore of the beautiful Lac d'Annecy. All the contestants were parked at the huge and imposing Impérial Palace Hotel.

 

Shown here are shots taken on 4 May, the evening before the start.

Concours d'Elégance Paleis het Loo

The show was host to a fantastic collection of pre-war racing cars and a retrospective of cars designed by Giugairo.  Autovisie organised the Dutch National Concours at the same event. The 2008 theme was cars of the sixties.

The 343 was designed by DAF before the take-over by Volvo, although DAF never manufactured it themselves.

Volvo 66 (1975-80)

When Volvo took over DAF (the passenger car division), the DAF 66 got the Volvo safety treatment (visually that means enormous black bumpers). The model remained in production until 1980

The Super Oldtimer Festival in Leiden. Usually the car park outside is just as interesting to car buffs as the event itself. More Ferrari pictures here.
