Daniel's cabrio in the works
at 10:50 am
Last weekend Dave and his dad Daniel started the works on the 1303 cabrio. It looks like the car is in good condition! Nice to see you have started working on your cars again. Can't wait to see your green late looker back on the road!

Boyz n their toyz
at 12:44 pm
As being some kind of type 3 pervert, I couldn't let this one slip out of my hands.
Sometimes things like that happen when you go shopping with your little boy. You go out to buy some babytoys for Vicje and you end up with a toy for the big boy aka daddy...
This fine Maisto came as a total surprise as you don't find a lot of type 3's in those small versions... If you look closely, you can even spot the Fuchs rims in a wicked combination. I doubt you can actually find them in these size compared to the size of the car...

Today, longtime DVF-member Gerardo contacted me and asked me to help him out.
Due to a sudden change in his life, Geert decided to move out of the country and try his luck somewhere abroad. As a matter of fact he's going to following his girlfriend, which we recently met and happens to be a very fine lady, to Bubbla land.
As taking everything along is a little hard, Gerardo decided with pain in his heart, to split with his beloved 66 and so this very fine ride, which needs some attention, is up for grabs.
The 66 comes as shown with the mws BRM-replica's, CSP-diskbrakes up front, Puma adjustable beam and stereo.
If your are interested, just contact me.
Sad to see you go, Gerardo. You always were a good friend to me but hey, planes do fly so Bubbla-land isn't that for away. Only 50 euro's and we meet again...
Maybe we'll have a Swedish DVF-devision soon...

Calisto got delivered

Earlier this week, Calisto, the daily driven 67, got delivered to the new owners Manuelito and Koentjee.
Just admire Koen's happy face. Boy does he know how to smile...
So we have another 67 rollin' in our beloved Ghent and hopefully a fresh set of DVF-members.
Congratulations to the new owners...

Our friend and DVF-member Stefano aka Moddersmurf also started a blog about his love for the Ultima Edition.Once upon a time he had this very fine example running on 2L Fuchs wheels. When Stefano wasn't to laizy to put the redrilled drums and disks on, this Ultima was 'cruisin' on 14 inch Fuchs wheels.
But sometimes when you use your beloved ride as a daily driver, bad things do happen and some kind of idiot decided not to stop for the red light and parked his fucked up Japanese dumpster in the rearend of the Ultima. Needles to say, the bug was damaged pretty badly.
But knowing Stefano, he won't be put down by this disaster and some crazy plans are allready made to make this a very crazy ride.
So stay tuned on his blog
(to bad you have to understand Dutch to read it) for the progress on another crazy project...

Happy New Year
at 12:44 pm
I've got this very fine period postcard in the mailbox yesterday featuring a very nice stock Notch. I didn't have to think long to realise where it came from. Looks like the Belgian Type 3 boys still have a special connection.
Thanks a lot for the nice card to my Type 3 buddy Ffred.
C U soon...

I started to collect a few upgrade parts for the Bus-engine. The plan is to bin the s/p heads and replace them with the better flowing d/p heads. Other goodies include S/S valves, ratiorockers (1.25 or 1.4 I still have the choice), Cro-Mo push rods, dual springs and to top it off a pair of IDF's. The carbs will be operated by a state of the art CSP-linkage.
Next on the shoppinglist is a set of forged Mahle's and merged header with big bore heat exchangers.Another fine piece of CSP-goodies are these bus beam adjusters. The curent ride height is a little on the high side so the frontbeam also needs some attention.
Only thing left is to find the time to do all this and I will have a nice low and a little faster Fat Chick...
