    Shit Happens


    Nice picture of Dave's ride (have you spotted the o-so-cool decal in the middle of the frontscreen that says: 'Masturbating is not a crime'. A whole lot of wisdom in one phrase).
    Picture was taken when the freshly detailled 914-alloys where fitted back on. It's been a while since we've seen that ride because it suffered from a loose balljoint which caused a lot of damage. Shit just sometimes happens.

    Updated photo of Jelle's ride. Do u see what I see?
    Jelle's ride now sport the coolest decal ever. Is he now an official DVF-member? Well, actually we're all just a bunch of good friends that come together every month and have a good time. Every-one with a passion for aircooled-VW's is welcome to have a good time with us, regardless their car's style. Just enjoy the DVF-ride...

    Nice picture of Timme taking the Mc-Stairs-posse in front of his Rodded Twingo (Twingo will get white-walls, small lowering-job and a whole bunch of pinstripes in the near-future) right before he left to Sweden. Jelle and Timme are heading for Sweden this evening for some VW-shopping.
    Watch this space for more news of their trip. Another Neukebeute is coming...

    Things to do...


    And that would be the thing to do with the perfectly detailled stroker pumped in the perfect Looker: put the pedal to the metal. If only...

    Perfect Looker


    And that would be the ride the stroker-engine get pumped in. I do have a week spot for those white Looker. This one looks perfect to me...

    How to...


    build yourself a super clean and detailled stroker?
    Well just look at this example, it's Troy Palmers detailled 2110cc stroker with all the right bits.

    I would like to thank my buddy Nicolas for the help he gave me all day long.
    Thanks Messie...

    Working Class


    Nicolas bus (still a working class) came in handy to get rid of the old garage.

    By yesterday evening, things have changed a little bit. Gone is the wooden garage, so no place to work anymore for now. But things are bound to get better. A new and bigger garage will be build there in a few weeks.

    Rust In Peace


    Somewhere in our neighbourhood. An old bug waiting to fall apart. This beetle has been standing there for ages, but the owner wouldn't let it go (in the time it was still possible to give it a second life). Too bad...

    Old and new on low Audi. This guy redrilled the rims to get them to fit instead of redrilling the drums and disks. Why do it the hard way if you can do it the easy way?

    This Radikal Bug (without Turbo'ed engine) was stripped at the meet by El Cheapo (if I'm not mistaking). Pinstriping was too a very high standard.

    Radikalbugz 1


    Second meeting of The Radikalbugz was nice but not as good as I suspected it to be. The First edition was better in my opinion, maybe it had something to do with the watercooled VW-boys that joined in on the second edition. Atmosphere wasn't that laid back.
    None the less, some cool Aircooled rides turned up including this rat Notch with loaded roofrack. Who's the guy looking at all that stuff? Is he trying to take some of it home?

       posted by Wim at 11:59 am 0 comments



    Must be a coincidence. When I kruised to the first meeting of The Radikalbugz, my ride passed the 69000km. Yesterday I went down to the second meet of The Radikalz and I crossed the 70000km mark with my ride. The way the engine runs, I think it's ready for at least another 70000.

    X-Town Traffic 1


    Yesterday evening we organised the first edition of our cruisenight called 'X-Town Traffic'. The bad wether caused some VW-drivers a headacke, so only 20 cars showed up (which isn't that bad regarding the weather). Atmosphere was great and we met some new people with the same interest for the Aircooled VW. So thru this way we would like to thank everyone for showing up and see u all back on the next 'X-Town Traffic'. Greetz.

    The Bible


    If you're into the California Look, you're insparation must have come from this great book written by Keith Sueme. Some even call it 'The Bible' (including me). It features all you need to know about Callook from the beginning, which cars set the look, which people were the founders and the clubs and the cars today. Too bad the book isn't available anymore and I heard it won't be published again. Lucky me, I have a copy of it and a read it ten times before and I'm reading it again with a lot of pleasure. If you find a used copy, just buy it, you won't regret it.

    X-Town Traffic


    As we (DVF) think that our ridez are made for driving, we're organising a cruise night through the beautifull town of our beloved city Ghent. It's the first edition and is some kind of try-out. Everyone with a (air)cool ride is welcome. X-Town Traffic will take place on thursday 15th of septembre (which is next week). We Park at 7 and Ride at 8. The gatherplace is the Parc & Ride of Ghentbrugge (E17 exit Ghentbrugge). The cruise goes through the center of Ghent for a trip of 15 km and will take about 1hour. The cruise ends at the Mc Do (not the Waterloo-one) for a quick junk-food dinner. This event isn't aircooled only and a Ghent Hot-Rod-Club 'The Roadmasters' is already invited for this event.
    So that's about it and be there.
