Members Comments …… Firstly from our overseas members

From Rob Faes (Breda, Holland) Hello English Cappuccino drivers and lovers ... John asked me to write a short piece about Dutch Cappuccino sportscars. First of all I would like to introduce myself. My name is Rob Faes, I am 39 years old and married to Jolanda. We live in the south of the Netherlands and have driven our Cappuccino from May 1995. After long hesitations by

Suzuki Holland, the Cappuccino was only introduced in the Netherlands in 1994. No more than 25 Cappuccino's were imported, of which, only about 5 are still for sale with the dealers. In May of 1995 I had just the same idea as John had, a club for Cappuccino lovers. Together with another Cappuccino driver I started writing and calling around

Picture above shows Rob with Jolanda and friends Apparently Rob's Cappuccino is two dog power!

and we came to the conclusion that all Cappuccino drivers in the Netherlands wanted an association-for-fun, rather than an official club (taking into account the number of cars) We now have 17 Registered Cappuccino lovers. In May of 1996 we held our first meeting and rally. Five Cappuccino's came but unfortunately the weather was bad. For 1997 we have definite plans for two touring rallies and some other activities. In the near future I hope to meet the English Cappuccino lovers. From the Netherlands we wish you lots of Cappuccino fun and many fine miles together. Greetings from the Dutch Cappuccino drivers.

CAUGHT ON CAPPUCCINO Realisation of a Dream ... I didn't want to buy a Cappuccino, I didn't even know it existed. I was about to realise a dream cherished for decades, buying a convertible. For the afternoon I had an appointment for a test drive in a small red two-seater of a Japanese company whose sports cars had been the unchallenged success on German roads for several years already.

Decision of an Instant ...Years of yearning gazes at passing red dreams had so conditioned my eyes and reflexes that I automatically slowed down when my eyes suddenly caught glimpse of a red gleam in the showroom of a garage. But what a surprise, there was not the expected familiar shape of my favourite.
