Today, I made the small trip to the city of Ninoof to collect some EBI-weekend passes.
It was a little last minit due to my new born and first we had to be shure we had a decent place to stay. I found one so I went to buy the passes to avoid long waiting at the gates.
So you all there...

Fat Chicks on the web...
at 11:46 am
Since owning my own example of a Deluxe Fat Chick, I've been searching the web for Fat Chick related blogs.
And guess what, I've found some very nice blogs with very fine pictures of very lovely fat chicks, (sounds like an impossible thing but I'm talking cars here).
The Fatty above really caught my attention 'cause this one seems to have the right stance and wheels, good for a super combo.
The second one is another early Deluxe Fatty just like mine. Looks like this one has also been imported from the USA. Stock wheels and slam tires do the trick of a Killer Fat Chick as well.
Two very nice examples that were apperently on display in Budel last weekend...

G.A.S.-bus in the works
at 12:17 pm
So that was it for today... I hope to get things all sorted out by this weekend so I can get the bus registered next week. That way, the G.A.S.-bus will make its first outing at the European Bug-In.
The G.A.S.-bus was in for some work today. I stripped off the front brakes only to find out what I was expecting so everything will be replaced front and rear. Just don't want to take my chance with a new-born kiddo in the back.
After the strip down, I renewed the battery-terminals to get good starting power and I cleaned up the enginebay a little.
Next job that needs to be done is sorting out the rust on the drivers site. I allready started cleaning things up to see how bad things were, but as you can see, it isn't that bad at all. Should be an easy repair...
Just wanted to let you all know that this sticker is staying on the Bus as long as the stock powerplant is in there...

Am I wrong when I say that there should be more Looker like this in our country?
I guess not, maybe we should all start building perfect Lookers like Tigers one.
Damn I love the overall look and stance of this wild bug...

Special Delivery Part 2
at 10:55 am
Today was a nice day, not the weather I mean, but my new ride was delivered.
The new ride came in the form of a 69 T2a deluxe 7-seater with walk-through.
Being a Californian import, the bus is solid and has a lot of sunburn aka patina. Engine runs fine but the brakes need an overhaul which isn't a big problem.
The only problem I will be facing is keeping the patina as it is and make shure it doesn't turn in to severe rust. Maybe I should just buy some Anchor Wax or a few bottles of nature finest oils to treat the patina.
After the brake overhaul and maybe some signwriting, plans are a change in ride-height, a set of wheels and a bigger powerplant to get some more cruisin-ability so the script on the back window (push, pass or get of my ass) won't be necessary anymore.
Oh one little detail, did you notice the remainings of the 'Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity'-sticker on the roof? I searched the web and it seems that the bus belonged to some kind of Educational Foundation in the States. Hmm very interesting... If you want to know more, check out the 'Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity website here...

The guys at KCW are building another crazy project. This time they laid their hands on a Notch to transform it into some kind of German Looker but ever wilder than the wildest German Built German Looker around.
The chassis has had its fair amount of work with a narrowed and raised rearend so the fenders could host the massive tires.
Just check this wild project out here
