The tulipfields in Holland  

Eminent Member Club Member

It is Kingsday today in Holland where I live. So I took my DeSoto 1949 convertible coupe for a ride with my brother who was driving so I could make a little roadmovie of the adventures that the DeSoto shares with us haha.
As you can see on the movie fields of tulips are shining and waving at us in a most precious way. It was a thrill to be part of this movie. I purchased the car last june in Detroit from a more than lovingly family. You understand that I love to share this with you. And because I can't (as far as I know) put it on this forum, I give you the Youtube name of this little roadmovie.

Very nice Jan, thanks for sharing. It's always nice to see things from other places in the world. Holland, Michigan has Tulip festivals and I was there many years ago when we lived in Michigan.

Glad to see you are enjoying your DeSoto too. I was able to search for it on YouTube and found it with ease. Nice "plug" for DeSoto with the jingle you used - neat!

Hi Dan

Hope you will enjoy it as much as we did.
We live right in the middle of many tulipfields which in in spring a fantastic sight to see. But ofcourse, when the flowers have been chopped, the fields look less nice. But that's life I suppose haha

Greetings Jan

Fabulous video, and gorgeous countryside (and CAR!). I'll be taking a tour through some of that region next month, but too late to see the tulips. Thanks for doing that great video!
