Would love to meet some "Air Cooled Family Members"

Post by besodelsol »

Hi
We (Nathaniel and Anita from Belgium) are exploring African trails with our VW bus "Beso del Sol". Because it's always a pleasure meeting "VW Family" we are very interested in meeting friends from Air Cooled Clubs or join them at meetings.
Of course we know very little of the African VW scene.
We would love to hear from you about Air cooled Clubs in South Africa or the surrounding country's and about upcoming events.

Thanks!

Nathaniel & Anita

Hi Guys

I am sure there will be plenty interested people who would like to meet you, but first we need rough dates of when you will be in SA and where?

IF YOU COME THROUGH TO DURBAN YOU ARE WELCOME TO GET IN TOUCH WITH US.
THE KOMBI SCENE ISN'T GREAT HERE BUT THERE ARE A FEW FLOATING AROUND.
CAPE TOWN IS PROBABLY THE PLACE YOU WANT TO BE; AND JOLAS, AS MENTIONED BY TONY; IS PROBABLY A GOOD GUY TO MAKE CONTACT WITH.

REGARDS

From your FB page you guys are already in SA, Graaff Reinet. If you come up to Johannesburg, we'd love to host you and arrange a get together of local ACVW drivers.

You are welcome to join local Cape Town Kombi owners at the Killarney classic car show. There will be more than 50 busses attending. Please let me know if you would like to join us so that you can be registered :)

What bus are you driving - do you have any pics of "Die Hel" and your bus ?

Hi guys

Beso del Sol is a 1989 T2 made in Brazil. While traveling South America with the backpack we bought it in Chile. Drove it all the way down to Ushuaia and then got the crazy idea to drive it up north to Alaska. After this adventure we shipped it to Belgium.
Now, two years later, the time has come for a African adventure.

We'll probably will arrive Thursday in Cape Town and looking forward to join the event!

Some pics from "Die Hel".
