356 International Meeting Belgium 14-17 May 2015

#1 Post by JohnLiles » Tue Nov 25, 2014 5:13 am

This event organised by the Belgian Porsche Club is open for registration and now has over 100 folk registered .
Earlier this year I bought a well preserved 50 year old C , after a gap of 46 years since first buying a 356B S 90 , so was keen to take it on a European trip .....which is not too difficult from London UK thanks to the Channel Tunnel .

Not surprising that 33% of the registrants are from Germany , with Belgium & France & UK together making up a further 33%.
However there is a good representation of 8 folk so far from US , does this mean some cars are going to be shipped across the pond ??

Anyway will be glad to meet up with some fellow 356 Registry members at the meet, here is a picture of my Bali blue coupe , if you see it come over and say hi to me and co-driver Melv ! John Liles

John, I'll be happy to come say hi from the US of A. I'm coming over without my car and without my wife which probably means I won't behave myself like I did before. I'll be searching for a navigator/passenger slot hoping there will be a solo driver. If you know of one please send him/her my way. As part of my navigation resume' I only got lost once at Strasbourg.

John, I shipped our '59 Coupe over a few years ago. We decided to leave it in Stuttgart, as we try to attend all the International events. They are truly special.

When I tried to sign up a few months ago, they weren't quite ready for the rush. Now I can't find their email address. Help?

John, I navigated for Hendrik Moulds in Strasbourg and got us lost once. I also didn't do his liver much good. I can understand if he attends and would prefer an abstaining mathematician to his experience with me as navigator. But I do appreciate your attempts to find me a seat however.
