    Question Other hobbies besides collecting militaria?,

    Don’t get me wrong, collecting militaria is a great hobby and perhaps for some a way of live but personally I can tone down it quite easily and collecting militaria for me is nothing more then pastime.
    I got another (more important) hobby which is being a supporter of my local football club in the Dutch first division Cambuur Leeuwarden, makes me wonder if some of you got other hobbies besides collecting militaria?.

    Hello Meindert,
    beside my passion for militaria, i do have other hobbies. One of them is taking care of this old lady. It was my dream car when i was a teenager and i finally bought one seven years ago...the dream still lives...

    We are probably from the same generation because this 3 series convertible was also one of my favourites and still is, I also still like the touring of this type, a beautiful example you got there!. But the taste for beautiful cars can’t beat the love for my local heroes!, YouTube - BV Veendam - SC Cambuur (Compilatie) one flesh, one breath, one life, one blood!.

    Yes the Serie 3 Touring is tremendous. I thought to buy one also, but i finally bought a Serie 5, which is more comfortable for the wife & kids (and gives me less weekend work on it than the convertible).

    I used to play football in my youth and my brother was a great striker, he made his way to a professional club, but he broke his right knee at 17 yrs old and never recovered totally. I also played basketball, was formed in a professional club for four years and played at several level of the different french championships, from second top level (ProB) to regional level when i got older.
    I support my local football team which plays in the top french league (Ligue 1), but the local heroes where i live are the ones holding the BRENNUS shield on the picture. The players of the "STADE TOULOUSAIN", the greatest french rugby club ever.
    3 european cups (record), 17 french championships (record).

    because when it really matters, never underestimate a TOULOUSAIN

    I knew you where a football fan too Jean Philippe but didn’t know you like to see a rugby play, not surprising because rugby plays a big part in the French sports I believe, here in Holland it stays way behind football. I would like to see Toulouse play my team, we are a small club but got a proper firm.

    I had no choice my friend, rugby is everything in my hometown. I played rugby at school, at high-school, no choice....
    The sport teacher : "Wow, it's sunny today, let's play rugby"
    "Wow, it's raining today, let's play rugby"
    "Wow, it's cold today, let's play rugby"
    rugby all over the place, the Stade Toulousain scouts even came to me when i was 16, because of my physical skills and strengh, but at this time i fell in another sport, basketball, which gave me a good career and good memories. As i have a public playground close to my house, i still play during summertime, but not so easy to dunk nowadays....no more jump...
