European Car Shows 2013

A new page for VW Car Shows.

Hessisch Oldendorf

A selection of photos from what has to be the best VW show we have ever been to – the standard of cars and the variety of examples was stunning.

…and some more pix from the next day

And now a ‘last few’ πŸ˜‰

Volkswagen Factory – Wolfsburg

A few shots from HQ

This is the museum in the Autostadt – well worth a visit.

These shots are from the meeting with VW Buba Klub Croatia. Quite frankly and honestly the nicest bunch of people I have met in a long time – worth every mile of the 1200 we travelled to get there.

I’m helping myself to another bowl of excellent traditional goulash – all our meals for the weekend were included in the ‘ticket’ for the show. That and plenty of beers and wine. I cannot thank our hosts enough for making us so welcome. Awesome is not a word I use very often – until this weekend.
