Calisto in the works
at 11:37 am
May I present to you: Calisto, the new car our good good friends Koen and Manuel bought as their daily driver. Some of you might allready know this duo as they were the friendly host of 't Frietkot as the last edition of the Bugtour.
Their new ride is a pretty solid 67 that was a real bargain. They instantly baptised Calisto.
The only thing that needs to be done to get it on the road is some repairs on the bottom of the A and B-post to get the doors closing properly.
So watch the roads when driving in the Ghent area and homp if you see them behind the wheel of their new found pride and joy....

Somewhere down in the Grimm Hills, a little Turtle has laid down his magic hands on some sheets to produce these nice templates to get the GAS-bus looking as it should: a period styled in-your-face rolling advert for the GAS-service.
So this weekend I'm planning to make the long trip to this tiny ill-bred hole somewhere on the globe to collect the Turtle's handy work.

Der Renn Kafer Cup
at 12:55 pm
Is (or was) a very nice competition based in the US where perfectly built Cal Looker compete against eachother in Show n Shine and on the dragstrip.
Theses series hosted some of the best US built Type 1 and Type 3.
The rules of Der Renn Kafer Cup made shure the cars were built to a very high standard and featured some very hot engine combos but they remainded roadlegal.
Pictures above show some of the contenders of the last couple of years.
Within the next couple of days, I will post some more detailed pictures of the competing rides so stay tuned...

It's been a while since I posted a picture of a Brazilia.
So when I saw these pictures at Crazy Liou blog, I just couldn't resist and steal them to post on this blog. Sorry for the thievery.Just admire the lines and the wild stance on this drag Brazilia. Looks like its the rolling advert for a Brazilian based VW-shop and did those Brazilians do a very nice job...
Inspiration for someone to complete it for the next European Bug-In?
