New JG54 club member - Heydon

A shot of Heydon's awesome 67. Welcome to the "green side" mate!

New JG54 member!

We would like to welcome new JG54 member Heydon Mizon. Heydon has a lovely black 67 running a 2160cc IDA motor with FK8 cam and a Berg 5. This set up ran a 13.8 at Big Bang this year, with plenty more to come!

BBQ! A great night...

Thanks to Randy and Marcia for a great night! JG54 BBQ plaques were made especially. We all thought they looked better than those nasty cheap original Bug In ones!

Big thanks...

To the idiots who were burning up the grass areas at Le Bug Show 2005 in Spa, Belgium. Thanks to you guys there will be no parade lap of the circuit this year and a much stronger Police presence. Thanks again... However, this is still an excellent show and well worth visiting. It is also a chance to see all the European cal look clubs in one place. Check the website www.vwbugshow.be
