A Good Morning At The Silly Automobile Assembly


How do you outline silly? Is it one thing foolish, unwise, or finished with an absence of judgement or widespread sense? After this occasion, I feel I do know.

I’m not positive what I anticipated on a fast Instagram scroll whereas avoiding the mindlessness of a college lecture, nonetheless, discovering this was undoubtedly not what I anticipated. However, the Silly Automobile Assembly, hosted by @onblackvince and @thenameisjoep, blew my expectations away. A easy premise: “Convey your stupidest automotive.”

This was an informal concept, organised purely as a result of there was nothing else taking place on this explicit Sunday within the Netherlands’ wintery end-of-year occasion lull.

After driving down the A12 motorway amidst a monotonous blur of greyscale automobiles, I turned off in direction of the carpool and into an unassuming entryway with the one trace of one thing taking place being a single car-spotter on the lights, digital camera in hand. However what quickly greeted me can solely be likened to somebody emptying a bag of Skittles onto the carpark.

The stupidity of all of it was the sheer range in automobiles. Regardless of the carpark being small in dimension, it featured all the things from Spykers and Suzukis to Alfas and Audis.

This, opposite to what’s maybe anticipated from mixing numerous fashions, allowed for discovery and studying about all kinds of automobiles and the tales behind them. It fostered inclusion quite than dividing opinions.
