Hi there and welcome to our club!
You've definetely got a club there. 200 members! I hope we'll get there too some day. We are only about 8 months old :binky:
Thanks for inviting us for the event. We were hoping we could join one of those at some point. I think the long drive and all the visa poblems will be worth it. May be we could even ship our cars from St.Pet? That would be great! We will discuss this here and contact you if we decide to organise the trip.
Regards to all Dutch PT Cruisers!


Hello Moijto,

Thanks for your nice reply. If you are interested please contact my son Sjoerd, he is one of the three Teammembers of the club and also founder and webmaster. Contact him at

Good luck to you and the Russian Pt Cruiser Club and a happy but far more important a healthy 2005

Hi Ed,
If and when you have a program for the event, please let us know here in case we miss it. Of course we'll be checking your site for updates.
We'll put your banner on as soon as we put our main page together (which I hope will be soon).


Hello Mojito and Racot and all the other Russian Cruisers,

Till now Cruise The Netherlands 2 will be visited by Cruiser-owners from Belgium,England,Luxemburg,Germany and the Netherlands. Last year about 83 Cruisers were at Cruise The Netherlands One.

Hopefully this year Cruisers from Russia and France will join us to.

For sure is that some Cruiser-members from an american Pt-Cruiserclub will be at the meet in june, only without their Cruisers.

The Cruise is published in the english forum of the UK-Cruisers, in a Swiss forum ,in the German forum, on the site of ptCruise-in and it's forum and also now in your own forum.

In january we will publish on all the forums some nice hotels in the area of the Ijsselmeer.
The Cruise starts on the 11th of june in the morning. Best is for many participants from other countries to arrive at least 1 day earlier. Meet and greet city will be ALMERE.
From Rostock to Almere: 632 km in 6.00 hours drive

Almere is a town very near to Amsterdam, so on the picture you only see Amsterdam.l

So probably you will need a place to stay around Almere from the 10th-11th. And next stop will be at the end of the first day up north the Ijsselmeer.

Again very soon we will publish also in your forum some nice places to stay (hotels-holiday resorts).
If you need any help, please mail to or leave your question in your forum.

It would be great if you also would join us in june 2005. A meet with nice programm, nice Cruisers and a lot of great people from many countries.

Till soon,



Hello Cruisers from Russia:

For those who would like to join us at Cruise The Netherlands Two, I told you about the Hotels.

Now, when you visit the special CTN2 site you will see that the webmaster is working on the translation, sorry no Russian.

When you click on Hotels you will find three nice hotels in Almere (meet and greet) and near to Almere.
These Hotels are only for those who arrive 1 day earlier at the 10th of june or leave 1 day later on the 13th of june.
So for a hotel from 10th-11th (friday-saturday) or 12th-13th (sunday-monday} please chose from those three hotels.

For the night 11th-12th (saturday-sunday) everybody has to book another hotel, because the first day the tour starts and at the end of the day we will be in Volendam. info about hotelsl in Volendam will follow soon.

SO, FOR HOTELS FROM 10TH JUNE- 11TH JUNE or/and 12TH JUNE-13TH JUNE, please visit our website.

Thanks for the info. Looks like we are going to arrive on the 11 early in the morning. Our fary arrives to Germany late on the 10th. Looks like we are going to be able to take off at around midnight. So approximate arrival time will be 5 am, which means we would still need the hotel at Almere. This is all subject to change so far, but we'll let you know anyway.


You see it a lot in big city's at buildings, beautiful Neon-lights. Typical American are the "Diners" like this:

The team of ptCruise-in (Sjoerd, Michel & Renate) would like to organise a "SHOW-n-GLOW" -moment You see on the next picture the two Team-cars. These two don't have neon.

Some members of ptCruise-in and for sure some participants at CTN2 from other countries have neon behind the grille, at the side of , inside or under their Cruiser. Even a lighted Chrysler-emblem
is enough to participate at the "SHOW-n-GLOW' on saturdayevening the 11th of june in Volendam. In the sign-in form (online) you can mention if your Cruiser has neon or not.
Let all the other Cruiser-owners enjoy the bright shining PT's.

Dear Ed,

There are some questions abt. "SHOW-n-GLOW":
1) It will be show or competition of participants?
2) If this competition, what its rules?

If it will be competition we could prepare some automobiles from the Russian time.
We have such idea.
I shall be glad to find out the full details about "SHOW-n-GLOW".

Regards, Val (Racot)


Hello Racot,

The "SHOW-n-GLOW" moment will take place at the end of the first day the 11 th of june in Volendam. Especially for ptCruise-in Hotel Van der Valk will clear a nice part of it's parking place. In the dark hopefully on a warm evening all the participants can enjoy the neon in,under,at the front, behind the grille, at the back of the Cruisers that have those lights. So the team hopes it will be a great light-show

But of course a jury will decide, wich one of the Neon-Cruisers is the best and that Cruiser will receive a nice price.

For instance, I don't have any neon on my Cruiser but at all the events we attended we never could see the neon on the Cruisers that had those lights, because all the events took place at day-time, so I am very curious about the neon-cruisers.

Bye Racot, till soon


Any more questions about SHOW-n-GLOW please contact my son (Sjoerd, one of the teammembers and webmaster) at He will answer your questions any time.

Hello to all Russian friends:

Cruise The Netherlands Two has ended yesterday. It was a great meeting with lot of nice Cruisers end great people. We had great cruises, nice barbecue and breakfast and a great lottery at the end.

The Russian Cruisers were sadly somewhat delayed so they missed the meet and greet and the first tour. But gladly they were at Voilendam at the end of day one and stayed till the end.

It was wonderful to meet your friends with their great cars. Also they brought some russian chocolote (great taste) and of course good wodka.

They have left The Netherlands now and are on their way home. They enjoyed themselves very much and everybody was happy to meet them.

Say hi to them and thanks for everything.
