    Nice PV

     

    How cool is this early type 3 Panelvan build by the boys at T3D? Rolling on zero offset erco's, low stance and heaps of power.
    At my cool-scale it would go for a 10 and the same goes for my wish-list-scale.

    The interior of the pv does the trick for me to with nice bucket seat, wooden carpets...

    For more of these cool rides check the T3D-blog

    147 pt1

     

    KCW just have ended aonther scrapper in the form of a 147 aka Fridolin.
    As a trademark they have smacked the 147 on the ground by crafting in some airbag...
    Just look at the frontvalance as it touched the tarmac.

    Gunthers new look

     

    Picture courtesy of Seba aka Baksmurf
    Gunthers has changed the look of his Rest Cal bug a little by ditching the original colorcoded wheels with whitewals in favor of some wide 5 Fuchs replicas. These rims really suit the ride.
    Did you allready know that Gunther dived into another project in the form of an offroad 181? Well, stay tuned for more about this project...

    Little chat

     

    Picture courtesy of Seba aka Baksmurf
    Another Bugtour picture showing some leading DVF'ers having a chat next to Wimme's (aka Guillermo) Notch.
    To bad I didn't have a bus for that day as my ride functioned as the transporter of a whole bunch of french bread all day long. I bet I'll still find a lot of crumbs when I get to restore this ride to its former glory...

    Rookie

     

    The man behind this perfect California Look VW might be a rookie, but in my opinion he has read all the right books to get the inspiration to build a ride like that. This Looker could have been build in the 70'ies and ruled the street of Orange County.
    Have to admid that i have a weak spot for those perfectly build Lookers with all the right goodies: 48 IDA's, Anchor header and decal, simple one color paintjob, T-bars and some very cool wheels. Big ups to the builder...

    Stress

     

    Not VW related but funny anyway...
    These days we have some kind of exam-fever with the students here in Belgium.
    So what do you do do when the fever gets to high and you just feel the urge to let go a little?
    Well you go to the park on a hot spring day with your girl, sit back, enjoy the upcoming spring and forget about the books for a while.
    And sometimes this isn't quite enough so you just do your thing in the middle of the park and ride like it will be the last ride of your life and don't mind the people staring like they want to take a ride as well.
    As a matter of fact, this picture isn't fake or set up, this nice scene took place in one of the parks in the student city called Leuven.
    I bet this couple didn't take into account that they will be famous in no time...
    For more nice stuff, new Belgium released ieop and to stay updated on the life in the Westoek, just check my cousin Ernies Blog here.
    Say Hi to Ernie.

    German Aircult

     

    Told you that the bou-ys at German Aircult were Lovers of the Third Kind.
    They were on display with these two cool rides at the Maikaefertreffen.
    Love the Stufenheck on Gasbrenners and the Variant on Fuchs. The Variant currently runs on 2L type 4 Power. Must be good for some cruising...

    Hot Chocolate

     

    Some time ago there was a rumour about this tube-chassis Notchback body dragster being up for grabs.
    Well this awesome ride has found a new home in Germany with the boys at German Aircult. As German Lovers of the Third Kind, the guys of German Aircult will take good care of this nice project and they've allready begun to take it apart and give the chassis a new paintjob.
    Hope to see this monster in action in no time.
    Stay tuned on this prject at the Aircult Blog.

    DFL Goes Volksworld (again)

     

    As an avid reader of our beloved Volksworld magazine I stumbled across the feature of this nice Looker. This car is absolutly stunning outside, inside and on underside.
    It came as no surprise that the owner is a member of the german leading Cal Look Club DFL. Looks like the club only hosts very nice rides in the traditional 70'ies Look but like we didn't know that allready.
    This very nice 66 Looker is owned by Christian Gohner and we all love this cool car, don't we? Yes, we do.
    Good work, nice job and thumbs up to Christian.

    Ultimate Split?

     

    Could this be the ultimate smacked Split Bus?
    Perfect ride height CSP brakes, IRS rear end, nice color sheme applied with brush and some very cool Gasburner Wheels.
    I shure would like to build me one like that.
    I saw this bus on the Maikafertreffen and it was love at first sight.

    How to...

     

    transport a good used 67 bug door in a Notch with three people on board?
    Well just ask Jelle how he survived and felt after a 5 hours drive from Hannover to Ghent with the door on his lap.
    I can assure you that he was happy when we let him out and he didn't feel some parts of his body anymore because it was so comfy in the back of my Notch.
    Rumours said that he suffered from musscle distress for a few days.

    Grunhertz

     

    So every one is talking about the new kid on the blogs 'The Grunhertz'.
    First of all I would like to say that they deserve all the respect because the quality of their cars is simple awesome, I was able to check the Lookers out at the Volksworld Show and I was impressed of their line-up. A true Cal Look fiesta. Click picture to visit their blog.
    And secondly the best thing about their new blog is that is made with Blogger which offers more possibilties than the more common used Skynet blogs.
    Just check out these Blogger made VW-blog and you'll know were I'm talking about.
    and not VW related

    Bugtour Damage

     

    Looks like the Bugtour ain't that good for the health of your VW.


    For example Gunters bug runs so low that he trashed the belly of his ride by hitting some high rocks on the road on some of the best roads available around our beautifull homebase.

    Philips Looker suffered from some damage too by hitting a low flying duck. Apperently the duck couldn't cope with the high speeds developed by this nice ride and got smacked in the ass by the NOS headlamp of Philips ride. Too bad but as the saying goes: only the strong survive. Maybe the duck will fit some bigger wings in his next lifetime so he'll be faster at speed.

    I hope the local green boys doesn't get to know this story otherwise they will do anything to stop us from organising our yearly cruise thru the beautifull countryside we cruise.


    And there still the story of the Slambulance. This ride ate his gearbox while trying to cope with the new found horsepower produced by the brandnew 1766-torcker. So over was the practice and the owner completed the trip in the back of another bus. Too bad but shit happens.

    Bugtour Specials

     

    Yesterday, the 3rd edition of the Bugtour took place.
    It was a very nice day filled with good food and of course a whole bunch of aircooled VW. At some points it just looked like a Cal Look Fiesta with some very fine examples on display in nice line-ups.
    Those who stayed at home were wrong again as it was a very nice event which the majority of the leading Belgian VW-clubs joining in. For example we got the DAS, Flatline Lowriders, the Players, KCB and some more all in the house. The infamous Bob from BBT joined in as well.
    Thru this way I would like to thanks those who helped us making this event possible and I also would like the 90 people who made the effort to come to Ghent to compete.
    Hope to see you all back next year...
    Too bad the weather wasn't that great but it was dry when the cars came to a stop.

    DFL Cruise Madness

     

    Like we allready said, some DVF memebers made a cruise to Hannover to join in on the DFL Cruise Madness.
    DFL set up a nice display with their cool cars at Mel's Dinner. A lot of nice rides showed up and the parkinglot and street was packed with cars in no time. Some fine muscle cars showed up as well.
    Atmosphere was very laid back and even those friendly German cops parked their car on the under side of the road and saw that everything was OK and let the meeting for what it was. Imagine that in our monkey state called Belgium...
