Holland greetings Gerda and Bas
An international gathering with Jack and Hilda Jacobs from Belgium, Chris Vandevaart from Amsterdam, Holland and Jenny and Keith Clements from England surprised Bas with Gerda’s assistance. Champagne and beer flowed and substantial soup sustained the hours of talk. The veteran couple was preparing to leave home while it is re-built but found time to enjoy reminiscing over their 25 years in the club.
Formerly English reg EB7709 at an asking
priceof 27,500 Dutch Guilders by
Jan Scholten, Arnhem, 026-4434943. I do not
know if it is still for sale.
There was much talk of organising part of the
year 2000 trip to LeMans through Belgium with a boat to Zeebrugge, a day in the
wonderful city of Brugge, a drive with visits to a museum with unrestored cars,
those marvellous family or monastery breweries, perhaps even Spa and the
Ardennes before dropping into France and Reims. Jack has many contacts so even
if this does not form part of the year 2000 celebrations the route and its
attractions could be used for 2001 to commemorate Spa.
Here are two Javelins from a museum worth a visit on the Dutch/Belgium border in Bergeyk (497-571003). Most of the cars are for sale, which adds a lot of interest when walking around. The first the AMC version with gold steering wheel and red and white polkadot seats.
Finally that impressive rebuild in progress by Jack. He has parts in various friends and family barns. Here he is dreaming.
The passenger is a friend of Jack who in 1989
had a photograph taken in a pub in Luxembourg . The photographer gave his name
and address and was also pictured on one of the photographs. Years later Jack
mentioned my name to his friend who then produced the photograph. Would you
believe it was my name and address but not me! One of those amasing coincidences
but is plausible since that was the year I lost my passport just before the
Pirelli Marathon. You may recall the tale of the panic of obtaining a passport 6
hours before scrutineering.
Oh well, it is back to rebuilding the SC and
preparing for the 10th Marathon to Marakesh. Amy is so excited so I
hope we can keep the Jup reliable.
By the way Jack has another friend, Jan
Bouchet, who seems to be able to make anything. I have visited his amazing
collection of re-built motorcycles. He literally makes everything for the
motorcycle, a bit like that model Ferrari in France. So if there are any bits
you need making let me know.
Has anyone a spare inner headlight ring they
can let Jack have (the one that secures the glass)? Otherwise Jan will have some
work to do.
