Heaven On Wheels – Part One

Posted by Glenn Rowswell on 27th March 2012

Welcome to the first part of our Heaven on Wheels coverage, a Belgian show that has a reputation as one of coolest and most laid back gatherings of stanced and modified cars in Europe.

Yet again this early-in-the-year meet attracted the hottest modified cars from all over Europe and the UK.

But it’s not just the cars that make this show, nope, it’s the eclectic mix of people that seems to give it a unique atmosphere, a different attitude, an almost indescribable air of coolness.

Anyway, here’s what you missed.
