We DO have our beer culture here in Belgium, but to pass our time behind our officedesks, or computer screens, we do prefer coffee or tea... with or without milk, strong or soft, long or short, and maybe to go italian, a "ristretto" ... anyway, these mugs will look very good on your desk/coffeetable/teatray ... so don't hesitate them when you see them for sale ...

abarth sexyness

in print and in real ... hmmmm really nice ! if you just could hear the difference when driving the car with the abarth exhaust ... a deeper tone and a bit more of torque IMHO.

15OOS RALLYING

IMGP5338.JPG

Really counting down the days for the next rally (regularity) in the agenda. the ING ardenne roads 10th edition will make for a fuel fed frenzy of lovely cars chasing down the hills in the south of Belgium, and is one of several reasons why i cannot pack my bags to visit the BUGIN in the USA this year. I guess my agenda has not enough days in the year !
