There I was, a Sunday drive when all of a sudden my automobile stopped in the middle of the freeway. Luckily, on the shoulder-side. I limped over and came to stop. When I opened the hood I was greeted with (a lot) of smoke and coolant water. My radiator had cracked and engine overheated… The plan to attend American Sunday on the circuit at Zandvoort wasn't meant to be. I quickly called some friends who were more than happy to pick me up with a trailer.
But then a second problem arose, no material to show off from the American Sunday! Lucky twice, the people at RPMonline were more than happy to send me some photo's of the day to share with you guys!
I really like these Ford and Dodge stockcar racing cars – look they're imported directly from the '60's and '70's.
This blue throwback had classic Darlington Raceway painted on the side complete with sponsor sticker clusters. Reminds me of the trend nowadays, although I don't see them as sponsor stickers anymore, but rather represent lifestyle stickers.
The red Dodge has been built by the East Tennessee Motor Company… or was it?
This 1979 Chevrolet Monte Carlo reminds me of the film ‘Training Day' in which Denzel Washington drives this same model car as the bad cop.
An American car show without some crazy lowriders wouldn't be a true car show right? This Chevrolet Impala had it all, from a shiny engine bay to wire wheels, and a boot full of compressors and actuators.
The legendary Ford Mustang with a nice set of billet wheels.
Another Mustang but with more power and tubbed rear wheels for that much needed grip on the dragstrip.
This has to be my favorite car of the show. A truly stunning Chevrolet dropped to the ground.
There is no doubt that the American way of life is quite popular amongst these enthusiasts.
A very cool and low Chevrolet Impala. A car like this wouldn't be complete without Snoop Dog and some killer hip hop beats. At least that is how I feel when I see it, haha.
The original Dodge Charger RT. A car that will never lose its connection with the ‘Dukes Of Hazard' and that's not necessarily a bad thing.
A very impressive Chevelle ready to warm up it's tires for a run down the dragstrip.
I believe that this one originally belonged to the Nascar World Truck Series, but I'm no Nascar expert. I do know that it is now used as dragster in Holland.
Let me know in the comments if you want to see more pictures of this show?
I must thank Patrick Maass and Peter Schwillens for supplying me with these pictures.
