Abarth Works Museum
« on: July 09, 2012, 06:48:34 AM »
Yesterday, I joined the Belgian Lada Niva Club “De Belgische Niva-Vrienden”  (http://www.ladanivabelgium.be) for a visit of the “Abarth Works Museum” in Lier – Belgium (http://www.abarth-gmr.be/new). 
It was definitely worth the visit and I can highly recommend it to everyone who’s interested in Abarth, Fiat or its Seat, Lada and FSO derivates,
It’s a small world because museum owner Guy Moerenhout, is an, although not very active, member of Autopuzzles (http://www.autopuzzles.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=10628). 
Herewith an impression of the museum in pictures:

Thanks for posting......
I'm well aware of Guy Moerenhout's Abarth and Fiat operation but I'd no idea that so many cars were in his museum.
Very interesting from an Abarth fan's perspective - I was close to buying one of his rebuilt Abarth Simcas before I bought my Diva.

Another thing I´ve missed when I´ve lived close to the border to Belgium.
Unfortunately I´ve never made it to this collection.

Thank you so much for sharing allthose photos with us!
