Ivan's second 1967

After owning his first 1967 Callook for more then 15 years, it wasn't time to sell that car, but just to buy a second one.  Ivan Mc Cutcheon is editor of Volksworld Magasine.  This is a very cool car, only under 30 000 miles since new, 2007cc JMR engine, Empi GTV steering wheel and genuine Porsche Gasburner wheels!

KG 1957 lowlight

Very similar to my example, this vintage speed lowlight is nearly finished in France.  Very nice color, engine and wheels combo.  Hope to get mine on the road in a couple of years.

Le bug show

We went to Le Bug Show this weekend.  The club was reduced as some of us were still on holiday, but Gino, Peter and I went for the weekend. 

Blog 1

Peter took out his lovely Oval Convertable, now with painted sprintstarwheels.  A top 20 award and a photoshoot for Super VW were the result.

blog 2

Gino drove his panel van, witch is still for sale.  If you are interested, drop me a mail on lowlight@telenet.be and I'll bring you in contact with the owner.

Blog 3

Ghia Steph's Dyno Pincher was used as the promocar on the flyer for this event.  It raced on the track too...

Blog 4

Race-taxi bus had Porsche Turbo drivetrain and realy rocked on the track of the famous race-track Spa-Francorchamps.

Blog 5

I would have loved to take this one home, an early Ghia vert on sprintstars.  I need help!!!

Blog 6

All the show and shine awards were these plastic beetles, pinstriped for the occasion.  This one calls Opwijk-city home being won by Peter Bieseman...

European Bug In 3

Yes, we are back from this major Event, which was great again.  Big thank you goes to all who have made this event to what it was.  It's getting better every year and the weather was just fine this year with no rain and a lot of sunshine.  To Fred, Mike and Kobus: Up to the next in 2011, it was large, guys...

EBI 3 2

Our Partyanimal Frank, does get competition from one of our own clubmembers.  Kurt, you were large!

EBI 3 3

Peter did won Best Vert with his 1955 oval convertable.  Miss Bug In, Monica, hands over the award...

EBI 3 4

DJ pete amused the crowd all weekend long.

EBI 3 5

Italian 1967 callook was awesome with sprintstars on Wide Oval Firestones on the back.  It got the Best Callook award, well diserved.

EBI 3 6

Ivan Mc Cutcheon's 1967 Callook on real BRM's last already more then 15 years and still rocks today!!!  I took her for a ride and that was an awesome experience!

EBI 3 7

Eric's 1966 Oldspeed was again very nice!

EBI 3 8

the flatline lowriders Callook set up...

EBI 3 9

Ex DKP 1967 from Doug Mitch now calls Ireland home in the Gasser Garage Collection of Russel Ritchie.

EBI 3 10

Nicolas' fastback is the best Callook Fastback I know.  The color is so nice together with the gold genuine Empi 8 spokes.

EBI 3 11

Dokke was the only member of DFL who hit the track with good results, low 14 s on the 1/4 mile.  Not bad for a 1776cc on IDA's.

GTV restaurations

Peter has put on my painted and detailled sprintstars, so the chromed ones can be saved for my lowlight :-).  Looks pretty nice.  Classic wheel on a classic car works always good.

My Callook bug almost ready for some action...

After 12 years of driving with an extremely lowered front beam on stock spindels, Peter Slambulance did a great job, lowering and narrowing the front of my beatle with lowered spindels so I can drive and enjoy it with comfort.  Thanks my friend!

Bug In 34

While the weather is turning bad here in Belgium, in California, they had a good time during Bug In 34.  The guys of EBI took the opportunity to promote their 3th edition in Juli 2009. 

Mike at Bug In 34

This car has been around for ages, and I like it since I first saw it more than 10 years ago on a picture of VW Trends.  It's DKK's Fred 1967 callook bug.

Volksworldshow 2009


Peter made the trip to Volksworldshow in his 55 convertable.  He was invited to put his car in the carshow and Volksworld made some pictures for a magazine feature.



1967 white beetle hade a roofchop and some very nice vintage details like the lovered engine lid.  Nice


Lovely 1965-66 model on south african sprintstars.  I think the original owner (old guy of 70 years old) brought the car together with his grandson.  Would be a nice story.


Early beetle on sprintstars, always nice...


This lowlight was still for sale but made the trip to the UK.  I think the guy is from Austria as he is a member of the DKT club.



I've met the guys from airmighty (Holland) who brought a very nice and original second owner notchback.  Please check the story in the latest Volksworld.  Everybody dreams of finds like this...




Latest project of T2D was based on a brasilia, ultra low, owsome paintwork and as low as you can go!!!  Nice work guys....

Frank the men!

Last week at the christmas market in Hamme the Flatline Lowriders had a little stand and Frank made some panecakes and they were very tasty with some hot chocolade milk. (And yes, I also use selfrising bloem for panecakes and I'm known in my family as a very good panecake maker...so Frank did a great job and is the best party animal the Lowriders could wish for)

This weekend we sandblasted the Lowlight body for the first time.  Gino of our club, did a great job sandblasting the body with respect for the lovely lines of the Karmann Ghia.  He eat all the dust and fired at me if I was in his way :-)  Thanks a lot, Gino.
