Belgian first VW show for 2018 was yesterday… Freddy Files put Ninove in to a “Thing Fling”

Forecast was bad, real bad, but all in all rain stayed away from 08.30hr in the morning so we had a nice dry day with sun coming and going… but before all we had VW’s, a lot of VW’s showing up in Ninove, and that’s the reason we go to a VW show, don’t we?

Little John and Big Brother welcomes you!

Thanks to Fffast Fred and his team to make it happen again! Ninove is one of Belgium’s best! No discussion!

The Vw Classics club meet and greet was a good one!

Yesterday we had a beautiful winter day in belgium, nice open skies (for most part of the day) dry,  and not too much of wind… so we decided with a couple of us to grab some cars and drive to the meet and greet from the VW Classics club on the BULO factory parking lot in Mechelen (between Antwerp and Brussels)

We had a great day!
