The 32nd edition of the National Old-timer Day Lelystad will take place this year on Sunday 19 June. This year's largest free-access classic car event in the Netherlands shows, in addition to a collection of 400 special historic automobiles, for the first time historic vessels (round and flat-bottomed ships) and a show of historic lifeboats and sloops. Weather permitting, the 75-year-old Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina flying boat will fly over the site. The Bataviaboulevard in Lelystad will turn this day into a mobile museum for 'heritage that moves' and where there is something to experience for every visitor.

BMW will also liven up its 100th anniversary on the shores of the former Zuiderzee with a real hall of honor. But also the Ford Mustang, which celebrated its 2014th anniversary in 50, made a true contribution to the development of American four-seat sports cars and an overview of the development of public transport for bus: 'Bus transport Then & Now'.

The car was purchased by the then Shah of Persia, Rehza Pahlavi, who made various private journeys with his wife Empress Farah Diba. Also special: Mr. Smits from Kleef, Germany, will proudly show - and also in the context of the 70 anniversary of the ANWB Roadside Assistance - his beautiful and completely original Roadside Assistance Harley Davidson.

The exhibition "Bus transport then and now" is graced by, among others, a Crossley de Schelde, who started passenger transport again in the first years after the war. This was necessary because of the destroyed rail infrastructure. Image: Old-timer day Lelystad
