    Concours 'Het Loo' 2014.

    Just a few photos form the 2014 Concours d'elegance that took place two weeks ago at the palace 'Het Loo' in Apeldoorn. It keeps getting bigger every event it seems, this year with more importers showing their latest products, and of course they have to show the best (And most expensive!) at this event, so some of the new cars on display included the BMW i8, Rolls Royce Wraith, Lamborghini Huracan, Porsche 918 Spyder (In plain white, quite a boring car..) and one of the best looking and performing sports cars of this moment, the McLaren P1:



    The Dutch Renault club had a big delegation present, as Renault celebrates their 115th (!) anniversary this year; I like this little Renault 4CV equipped with a lot of extra's:



    Some of the cars used in the sprints:



    Intel i7-7770K Kaby Lake @4.2Ghz, Cooler Master 212 Evo, 16 Gb Corsair Vengeance DDR4 RAM, Asus ROG Strix Z270H motherboard, Asus GTX770/2Gb, Cooler Master 700 Watt PSU, Cooler Master HAF 922 Case, Samsung 840 128 Gb SSD, Samsung 850 250 Gb SSD, WD 2Tb HDD, Samsung 1Tb HDD, LG 27" LED Display, Windows 10 64-bit.

    I probably have an odd taste in cars, but one of my favourites on display was this 1954 Greyhound Scenicruiser; built like a Dakota and showing plenty of wear and tear. Love it!:



    This 1952 Trailways Red Ghost (Great name for a bus!) gets my vote for second place:



    Beautiful Fiat 1100 Turismo Veloce from 1954:



    1934 Jaguar SS100 'Airline':

    1953 Fiat 8V by Vignale, a somewhat odd looking car:

    Now that Bentley is what owning a Classic car should be about, driven on the road and kept 'alive', not locked away in a jewel box!
    Lovely Bugatti and SS 'Jaguar' fast backs Ferry, and I agree with you re the period style Greyhound, very 1950s.
    Vingale was going through a strange period, the obvious American 'Styling' influence rather spoiled his work at the time.
    The #6 Austin Seven strikes a chord with me as I have a few old (very old!) friends who race them, one fitted with blower that is physically larger than the engine!!!
    One thing about #6, there will be little or no understeer with front tyres like that.
    I can almost smell the scent of Castrol R in the air.

    During my visits to this event I learned that there are two kinds of classic car owner; those who want to polish and show off, and those who want to preserve but still use it what it was made for. I very much prefer the second group.

    where was this?...if i have "money" that scenicruser would be mine..ive wanted one to restore since childhood,there used to be several in my area which had been converted to motorhomes..and as far as i know..three of the four i knew of..were scrapped like old firewood.

    also,if you or anyone else here likes those wooden boats..come to the concour's at lake tahoe..litterally hundreds of wooden boats all in one place...its awesome...also i know the son inlaw of the man who owned Stephens boats,for the most part they built large cabin cruiser type yachts,they did have some small runabouts too..one of the boats richard still owns is in the Hagen museum in stockton california.last time i was down at the marina,i was taking my rv there for up to three weeks at a time...richard went to the museum and took it out (guess rich people can do what they want..lol.) and we joyrided all over the san Joaquin delta..
