At the end of the show it's allowed to do burn outs:
And not one Mustang plowed into the crowd!
There are canals with water on both side of the exit road, plus trees.
Great show, something for everyone...must be my age, especially liked chopped Merc...
reminds me of American car shows in England . literally anything would turn up if it was American including newer cars and trucks . it was a blast , miss the shows there .
Board member "75Riv" (Rob) entering the show in September 2006:
At 4:29 an old Chevrolet pick-up truck ends up in the water:
(people in the pick-up were okay)
You can see the same truck in the video around the 1:30 time mark:
Edit, found a few other photos:
I used to visit Notts Americana every year.
Big show in Newark, Nottinghamshire.

Surprised to NOT SEE Robert Noekens 72 GS"X" Buick??? W'sup witdat???

He's from The Hague, people from that area don't like to drive "long distances" (like there are any in a country like The Netherlands)
The car show in the videos is up North, above Amsterdam, that's too far away, especially since his car does not run on LPG.
Ok ThanX! I had no idea the Netherlands were that big. . .
No, it's really small, but: how smaller the country, the more trouble people are having with driving distances.
Funny to see his name mentioned here. Almost 17 years ago I bought a 1969 GS400 from him. Currently (for the past 5 years) restoring it.
I sold Robert his Buick! It was initially built by me, in my garage, here in Florida. I applied the paint, stripe and the red "ribbon" throughout the stripe... The car looks the same as it did when he purchased it well over 10+ years ago??
