Ile de reunion vive la fete…. en VW!

Last friday I was invited to Ile de Reunion, a magical tropical island from France. Our distributor for Reunion, Coleur Chrome from Mickael and his team prepared a small road trip and was brave enough to give me a Vw to participate!

in Memorium; our good friend Hein Senders….

Big Friend of Da Houze Hein Senders left us last thursday after a long and totally unfair fight against his cancer.

We will Hein remind as the guy that could get anything and everything, no wall to high, no ocean to deep when he went for something ….he just simply did it. He brought us hundreds of beetles through the years and started up dozens of different parts productions….

Besides all the parts and the cars it will be especially the fun and adventures together that will be missed…  his one liners will be remembered for always…

Rest in peace my dear friend!

Transport of a VW sign….

Thanks to Bill Bowmann I was able to obtain a real tall VW used cars sign… the ultimate sign for the BBT building. but transport of this signs is absolutely NOT easy… fragile!!

Thanks to Tom and Bill the sign came to California (thanks guys!!) and I picked it up last weekend from Tom’s place to drive it to the port… huge undertaking!
