This year they celebrate the 202 years of Peugeot Brand. Last year they celebrate the 75 years of Jaguar and the 50 years of the E-type and I had less than 48hrs to develop the project, this year I had 2 weeks...

 

 

Now the "1º Merendão" poster ("big pic-nik " in portuguese), also a September event. This time will take palce in the portuguese mainland (north) and is organised by the VW Ar Clube de Portugal (the biggest and oldest portuguese VW aircooled club)

 

A litlle bit off-topic, the covers of my "Running Report " on the  portuguese classic car forum. This month the theme is about driving modern "plastic" cars during an entire month (for the first time for the last 20years...)...
