CC Outtakes: A Short Walk Around The Church


Just a few completely random snapshots I took last Saturday, after some shopping. Please feel free to identify all the cars in this picture. Clearly visible is the Roman Catholic Church of Druten, the Netherlands. It was built between 1875 and 1877, the architect was Pierre Cuypers. To save money, and to finance the construction of the church, a new brickworks was built nearby the river and the villagers brought the bricks for the church to the construction site in the center.


The long-lasting popularity of hatchbacks visualized. From left to right: a 2004 Volkswagen Golf, a 2011 Opel Corsa, a 2007 Volkswagen Polo, a 2014 Volvo V40 and a 2011 Ford Fiesta. The Polo and Fiesta are powered by gasoline engines, the others have a diesel under the hood.


Citroën C4 Cactus in this row of six. A Subaru Forester is quite rare in my neck of the woods.


Compact Peugeot Partner service van, parked in front of the owner’s shop. ‘t Kachelwinkeltje literally means a small shop where you can buy heaters, stoves and furnaces. And have them serviced, in this case.


The blue paint on the pavement seems to have infected this Volkswagen’s plate. It’s a 2011 T5 taxi van, powered by a 2.0 liter TDI engine; the standard engine here in the Transporter and Amarok pickup. Thanks to their blue plates taxis can be recognized from far.
