Why do we build cars? Why do we get together for a meeting? Why do we, Wangan Warriors, organize meetings? Why do we do, what we do? For some it’s to show of their rides. For others it’s about hanging out with friends. And we organize meetings to cater the needs of both. Personally I like the latter. For one, my car isn’t exactly finished (and you can call that the understatement of the year!) but more important is the fact that I love the social side of (our) meetings and gatherings.

The day started with quite some rain all over the country but only minutes before official start of the meeting that sunshine came through. Luckily for all of us I guess, I even saw some people walking around in a t-shirt or without a winter jacket. Remember the cold of last years meeting? Continue reading
So that was it people. The year 2011 is officially to an end in the Japanese automotive scene in the Netherlands. The city of Oosterhout was a magnet for Wangan Warriors meeting visitors. We are proud to say that, thanks to all of you, we’ve exeeded the vistitors quantity and counted just over 220 cars!
