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.

I took home this Callook award from the EBI crew.  It is very nice to get an award after 12 years of restoration!  Thanks guys.

Peter's 55 vert won two, but I have to wait for him to mail me his pictures :-)

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.

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.

Next chapter in the GTV Restaurations

After the Empi GTV steering wheels I restored in the past, I lay my hands on a set of Empi sprintstars.  They look like new again and I hope the guy who will borrow these for a wile will be happy...
