What a great day!!! On March 1st, 2015 we celebrated the 'AirMighty Megascene 5th Anniversary Birthday Bash' in our hometown Amersfoort (NL)! The location we choose was the old city center and the exact middle-point of the Netherlands on the Lieve Vrouwekerkhof square! It couldn't have gone any better! Awesome cars, lovely people, the sun was shining (!!), perfect location, the Ben Pon Show The Movie premiere was a success and free Bitterballen ;) for our guests... what else can we ask for! THANKS to all participants and visitors for making it happen! We hope to see you all again next time / next year and we plan more cars (up to 80!) to place on the square! We just uploaded over 150 pics, be sure to check them out in our gallery ...enjoy and feel free to share them!
More pictures from visitors have been collected and uploaded on the 2015 event page on Facebook! [CLICK HERE]
We are proud to announce the 'Ben Pon Show The Movie' DVD is ready and for sale via the shop on www.BenPon.nl. Here it is, the official 'Ben Pon Show The Movie' trailer to get you in the mood:
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). Here we all enjoyed a long weekend with camping, stunning vintage VWs and friends. Set a world-record of 76 Barndoor buses gathering in one location... and much, much more!
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.
On the weekend of 2 & 3 August it was time for the 22nd edition from the VW Bug Show at Spa Francorchamps. We simply love this even, it's definitely one of the best! Great atmosphere, cool people and awesome cars. AirMighty hooked up with the Cool Flo Crew and had a stunning display of show cars on display in 'The Cool Box'! Thanks everyone for stopping by the stand to say hi! As we where very busy at the stand we only took pictures during the 'Big Parade'. We've uploaded almost 800 pics, so you must be in there somewhere ;) Be sure to check out the pics in the gallery.
Better late than never... here are the pictures from the 'Kever Winter Festijn 2014' pictures that took place in Maastricht NL on the first weekend of January. Be sure to check out the pics in the gallery!
For the 2015 edition they will go back to their old location in 'Autotron, Rosmalen' and there will be a new oragnisation and a new name, the Aircooled Winter Fest. We - AirMighty Megascene, Cool Flo NL and Slammed Clothing - will be putting on a big display of cars, music, lifestyle and bring a relaxed lounge vibe to the show!! So be sure to visit us... still months to prepare, so we can bring you something cool!
In November 2013 we visited Mexico to have a glimpse of their aircooled VW culture and lifestyle. My friends at Vier-Zylindern in Mexico-City picked me up and showed us around... what a great time we had! We placed a full article about our trip in the AirMighty Megascene #15, be sure to order it and read all about this! A part of this trip was to participate in the VW Treffen & Track Day event in Puebla, Mexico. It was more than great to see all these beautiful cars. And of course I want to share this with you all, so I uploaded little over 350 pictures of this event, be sure to check them out in the gallery!
Keverdag in Schagen, Noord-Holland is always a nice local aircooled VW show which we support. Of course we took our aircooler there and check it out. As usual the atmosphere was good, we grabbed some coffee and walked around with the camera in our hands. I just uploaded my 180 pictures that I took in the gallery, be sure to check them out!
We are working hard on the new AirMighty Megascene issue #12. In this issue we will bring you the full feature of Marc Hänel's 1963 Ragtop Beetle. Here you can check out some sneak behind the scene shots! Be sure to collect this magazine when it's out, it promises to be another good one!

This year on March 11 it was time for our 5th edition of the 'AirMighty Cruise 2 Ninove'. Every year more and more aircooled VWs are joining us and this year a new record was set at 103+ cars! Amazing and what a great sight to see all these cars rollin' to the FreddyFiles in Ninove, Belgium. Check out the 'high-speed' movie I just made ...it gives you a glimpse of this amazing cruise!

Here is a small video of the visit at Flat4 VW Shop in Tokyo! This movie was also at the end of the 'Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show' but I thought it was a good idea to upload it separate from that one as well. So here you go... please like, share and most of all enjoy it! Thanks for watching!
Okay guys, here is a movie I just made of our trip to Japan. We checked out the 'Mooneyes Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show' and visited the Flat4 VW Shop in Tokyo! We really had a great time and I made way to many pictures which will follow as soon as possible...! But for now, here is our video which will give you an glimpse of what our trip was like! ...and remember, what happens in Tokyo stays in the karaoke bar! ;)
I went through some "old" material and found several small shots that we made at the European Bug-In #4. So I thought to edit them... it's nothing special, but I think it's better to share than keep it to myself! Enjoy:
