I don't want to hear complaints about distances! For the OCTO barndoor reunion in California, plenty of buses were driven more than a thousand miles (2200 km) to attend the show. My lovely bride and I drove a barndoor with less than 20 miles on a new engine 1200 miles right to the show from Washington State (thanks Greg and Clara).

Correct! And I even took the plane from the EU to check it all out! Very Happy

And I'm planning on doing the same for your event. Looking forward to seeing the record broken!

Awesome, great to read that J.

There is already a lot of planning and organising going on!
There will be a cruise from the UK including Barndoors and other Vintage VWs!
And we will welcome visitors and cars from Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Norway, Denmark, France and visitors from the USA! Will you be there as well!?

More history: Amsterdamseweg 21-23, Isselt, Amersfoort (NL) back in 1955. Automobielbedrijf Pon's warehouse, with Wijnand Pon (2nd from left).
Amazing, look at all this sheetmetal! I wish this was all still there, don't you...?! - www.BenPon.nl

But are you sure it's not Gerson's warehouse? Wink

More history from Amersfoort:
Here we have a glimpse into the Garage at Pon's Automobielhandel back in 1951, located between the Arnhemseweg and Bekensteinselaan in Amersfoort (NL).

Note the banana-bumper on that pre-'49 splitwindow beetle on the right of this picture and look at the stunning Porsche 356 Coupe behind it. Yes, Pon's Automobielhandel was, and still is also the Dutch importer of Porsche in the Netherlands. - www.BenPon.nl

We had our banner up at the 'Vintage Show' on Saturday, the only right place to have it displayed during the weekend!
