    Ex-Randy Gates as seen on VolksWorld Show


    This is ex-Randy Gates bug as featured at the VolksWorld Show last weekend in Esher. I allready read the feature of this awesome ride but seeing it in the flesh was something else.
    I was impressed by the overall finish of this superb ride with a mixture of Cal Look and High-Tech. A very subtle but effective mix.
    Interior is as good or even better than factory fresh with some nice tricks to finish it off. Just admire it for yourself.

    Detail on engine bay is perfect as well. Have you noticed the huge throttle bodies to which are bolted some massive veolcity stacks. This engine spells out 'Horsepower'.
    Some miight like it other won't but to me, this ride is better than perfect. Wonder what the price stamp was when it changed hands...

    Jelle, Sam, Danny and I got out to esher yesterday to visit the VoWo Show 2007.

    I was a long day but shure worth it.

    Ex-Randy Gates full-on superdetailled looker was on display as well (later some more shots of this one).
    Ex-Der Kleiner Panzer Cal Look ride on display (now residing in England).

    Same Concept


    Same concept, same make, different era.
    Only twelve years seperated between the production of these two VW's.
    I prefer the older one, but would fancy the 77 Derby as a daily driver. Some Gasburners, a wack in the ride height and you've got a killer ride.
    I love the simplicity the Derby got when produced... If you have the chance to check it out, you should check the late Bug seats featured in the Derby.

    Resto Cal and Project...


    Herr Gunter is in the works lately.

    To make his ride a Resto Cal in its purest form, he ditched the (ugly) wide 5 Fuchs replica's in favor of a set-on set of polished Empi 5 Spoke replicas. I must admid that these set of wheels really suits the theme. Good job Herr Gunter, but what's the deal with those ugly centercaps. Where did you find these? I know some nicer once available...

    And if this still ain't enough, Herr Gunter started the serious works on his Karmann Ghia.

    This is how it all started several months ago...

    and the shot belows shows how things are looking these days. The body has been separated from the pan. looks like the end of this project is getting near...

    Keep up the good work Herr Gunter...

    Road testing


    Tomorrow the Belgian bicycle season takes a start. Our bumpy roads in the country will become very popular again.
    Are the T2D also going to use these roads next week? It would be cool to support their road trip to Ninove.
