Gullers bus

Yesterday Jens and I was on a roadtrip visiting and collecting parts from several vw people in the area, one of them was Guller. He is currently in the middle of restoring this 65 split bus, and as you can see on the pictures he is saving money on his clothing budget to buy sheetmetal for his bus :-)

Tough call

I have these four Sprints, and I am not sure if I want to change them for my whitawall crossplies look. On the other hand the crossplies just suit the car perfect! Then I thought about using them for my waterhose in the garage, but the hose is to long to fit the 4,5" and to short for the 5,5" :-)

On the way to eternal summer cruising in heaven

I can´t expect you guys to keep believe in all the things that I see to and from work. But the other day something caught my eye standing a little higher than the road, I was not sure that had seen right, so today in the day light I went of to check out if I was right in my observasion, and I was!!! There alog the road stood a burned out and rusted early 911/912 (I am not sure how to tell the difrents, besides the engine) It is a pitty to see such a nice car end its life like that, don´t you think?

Heavy breathing

Here it is compared to a original cabrio lid.

Here it just got some black paint with a rattle can just to see how it looks.

Flenne wanted to get some more air into the 193 horses he is hiding under his decklid. We talked about several options and finally came up with this, to graft in the louvres from a newer decklid (they are almost identical to the original ones on a cabriolet) So that is what I did, the funny thing is that the decklid I took them louvres from is actually from Flenne´s first car.

New kid on the block (driving)

New kid on the block.

Bjarke has long been wishing for a new aicooled car, since he sold the black devil to Jens his life has just not been the same.
So when he called to ask if would go with him him check out a 59 in Aarhus I was on!
The car is as mentioned a 1959 type 1 deluxe first registered 23/12 1959 I guess it must have been someones christmas present back then :-)
The car is pretty solid and there are only a few things that needs to get fixed before Bjarke and his famely are ready for the spring.

On the way home it started snowing, and you know the roads a slippery when you are broadsiding in 3gear with only 34hp under you right foot ;-)

Let there be light.

A couple of months ago Jens bought this matching set of Bosch acccessory lights for the 54 one foglight and one highbeam. So finally yesterday we recieved the much needed brackets so they could go on the car.
Nothing beats a 6volt car, even modern cars with xenon etc dont have this much light :-)
