Europe Islero Reunion – 2010

Europe Islero Reunion – 2010

In July, my wife, Lori, and I were in the UK for the wedding of our daughter.  Fellow lamborghini historian and enthusiast, Marcel Wallenburg, from The Netherlands, found out about our trip and organized an Islero reunion at the beautiful Chateau St. Gerlach, near Maastricht, and very near friends we were staying with in Belgium.

The event was a total success, with 12 Isleros attending, the most ever together in one spot.  Those at the Chateau were: #6000 (Germany), #6045 (Germany), #6135 (Denmark), #6249 (The Netherlands), #6288 (The Netherlands), # 6402 (The Netherlands), #6417 (England), #6435 (England), #6480 (Germany), #6495 (The Netherlands), #6637 (Germany), and #6677 (The Netherlands). Note that #6000 was the first Islero built and #6677 was the last completed by the factory.  In addition, owners attended representing a further 14 of these cars, including Islero #6009, the only Lamborghini to ever qualify at LeMans.

The reunion included a display of cars, gourmet lunch, concours, and a fabulous dinner.  Many new friends were made, and many stories were shared. Most of us had been communicating by e-mail for years, but had never met until now.

This was an extremely enjoyable and historic day.  Many thanks to Marcel for all his planning and pulling it off perfectly !
