Hmm what else? well the biggest classic VW show in Sweden. Bug Run Classic moved from Mantorp park witch is a 5-6hour ride away in a old beetle to Tierp Arena witch is a 30minute ride from where i live. 4 years ago, and from that moment i just wanted my own beetle again and drive to the show. Well this summer it happend.
