See you on 20-21 MAY 2023!


WOW!!! What an EPIC weekend this was. For me personally it was one big rollercoaster, but what an amazing ride it was!!
I would like to say some things to all you guys, so here goes: I would like to say THANKS to our sponsors for your trust and support, THANKS to all the food-trucks for keeping us alive, THANKS to the city of Amersfoort and the Wagenwerkplaats for having us hosting this show, THANKS to all traders for making sure they sell you parts to keep us going, THANKS to all you amazing visitors for making the effort to participate in the show, for creating a great atmosphere, for your positive feedback and for making it all worth the effort of puting this show up in the last 1,5 years. I want to THANK our volunteers, our great team of HEROES who helped out with 200% dedication to make this weekend as good as we could possibly get it organised, we can't, and I will not do this without you!! But last and definitly not least my beloved family, THANKS to Marieke for the time and trust you gave me to do this, long days and nights, I love you!!!
We did our best, we did it with passion and we all hope you liked it as much as we loved putting this together for you Vintage VW fans!!
We will try to do this all over again and hope to welcome you in 2023!!
