I am sad to report that Jos Cent died piece fully at home on Wednesday 6th January aged 57 having been fighting Motor Neuron Disease for some time. He was a knowledgeable quiet man having many Borgward group cars and trucks along with other makes from Jaguar to Peugeot. He came to the UK meeting in his Coupé last May and the last major Borgward meeting in Wilhelmshaven in August. He was half way though restoring a Borgward Hansa Pullman when he died all the European clubs were helping put the car together having been resprayed late last year.

The Pastor said describing Jos's last ride in his sky-blue coupe
"along the road many Borgwards are honking his way to heaven's gate

Behind the two trucks was Jos's Sky Blue Coupe and E-Type, followed by a column of Isabella's (Coupés, Saloons and Combi).
Behind again to the 350-400 visitors following from Jos' house, with B1500 and B4500 Alligator
