Today we visited the Louwman Automobile Museum in The Hague, Netherlands.  This is one of the largest privately owned automobile museums in the world.  He has over 250 cars and the Talbot Lago's  pictured below are worth several million each.  A great collection with many rare American Cars.  This collection of cars compares well to the Nethercutt Collection in California.  There are several cars that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans race.  Tomorrow is the "shop til you drop" day in Amsterdam.  We are scheming a way to smuggle tulip bulbs out of Holland; except that would probably put us over our weight limit for our luggage.  Tomorrow in Amsterdam; then we are flying home on Thursday.
