Hilarious: Bassie en Adriaan Honda Prelude replica


About 50% of the Initial D fanboys who buys a 3 door Trueno AE86 convert it to a Fujiwara Tofu replica and the same applies to the Delorean, Pontiac Trans Am, Dodge Charger and the GMC truck. I can understand all this since they all originate from inspiring heroic movies and series. What I can’t understand is this Bassie en Adriaan Honda Prelude:

A Bassie and Adriaan Honda Prelude, including the caravan! WTF!?

For the people unfamiliar with Bassie and Adriaan were a Dutch circus duo who starred in their own (children) television series. To illustrate it a bit more, here is on of the intros:

And it doesn’t get much better than that! 😀 😀

So the car does come completely with the matching caravan:

I’m not sure it is the real deal because I was unable to match the licenseplate of this Prelude with the intros of the series. The cars used in the series were all owned by Adriaan (the acrobat) and he did swap the Prelude quite regularly for a newer one, so it could be that the Prelude Mk II was superseded by this Mk III. But the seller does not mention anything if it is the real one or not, so I can’t tell if it is actually a replica or not. (but I do suspect it)

What the seller does say is that it is being sold off because his hobby got a bit out of hand. Now what would he mean with that? Either having too much Bassie en Adriaan stuff or having too much Preludes and caravans?

Additionally you will also get this cute Robot called Robin in the deal:

And no: it is not able to wash the car for you: the robot was limb during the series. 😉

The Prelude has always been serviced by the official Honda dealers:

Imagine driving this thing into the Honda dealership and requesting for the regular service interval. I think that would give a laugh or two! 😀

The caravan also has the later type official logos, so perhaps it could be the real deal after all.

Just imagine cruising the Dutch highways with open windows, having the wind blow through your hair and getting laughed at by about everyone in the other and opposite lanes. Who wouldn’t? 😛
