Did we had a blast at the European Bug-In #6 in the weekend of 26-28 June 2015. We drove to the show on Friday morning, after a good trip we arrived in the afternoon to get the stand ready on top of the hill next to the drag-strip. It was already very busy when we arrived, so this promised to be a good weekend. On Saturday morning we started early and opened the stand. In the afternoon we did a quick round on the show-and-shine area and of course checked out some of the drag-race action, this is our son Justin's favorite part, he loves it! In the evening we got back to our cottage for a nice BBQ with friends to get up early again on Sunday morning... Sunday was again a great day, the sun was out and the vibes where good. Thanks everyone who stopped by our stand for the support to the magazine!

In this 48min long documentary we look back at the highlights of the Vintage Volkswagen Event, the '1st European Barndoor Gathering & Vintage VW Show' aka the 'Ben Pon Show', that took place on the weekend of 19-20 April 2014. We will show you and bring you back to this EPIC weekend from start to finish. With over 11.000 weekend visitors, participants from over 25 countries and 1.200 cars this ended as the most international event to date in Amersfoort (NL).

On 23th of August 2014, we visited the 'Karosserie Hebmüller Treffen 2014' and witnessed a stunning line-up of 21 VW Type 14A’s, also known as ‘Hebmüller cabriolets’, in front of the former factory buildings of Karosserie Hebmüller at Wülfrath, Germany. The result was a great day with fellow enthousiasts and an once in a lifetime shot, which is in fact a remake of a very famous archive picture from the 50s where all VW Type 14A's are lined uf infront of the factory.
Although the company planned to produce many more Type 14A's back in the early 50ies, only 696 vehicles were actually completed. The Hebmüller factory closed for good in 1953 after it had been forced into bankruptcy, a result of financial difficulties after a disastrous fire in 1949, the first year of production. Around 100 cars are still known to exist.
Be sure to check out the 450+ pictures I made and uploaded in the gallery.
