Tom's convertable

While he is lying in the sun with his ass in the sand, I was polishing his last sparewheel for the 1968 Karmann Beetle.  Hope you like the result, Tom, feel free to pic it up.

VOLKSWORLDSHOW 2008


It was large again!

Volksworldshow Ivan

Ivan Mc Cutcheon proudly wearing his T-shirt of a famous Belgian VW club!  it was large, my friend, great show!

Volksworldshow 1

Very beautifull callooks in there, like this subtile grey metalic Oval window with hot IDA engine and detailled fuchs alloys.

Volksworldshow 2

This shot was taken just when the doors gone open.  A lot of visitors came to the show this year, actually every year.

Volksworldshow 3
The T3D panel squareback.  This car was extremely detailled and is very rare indeed.  It made me think of that other nice car they had on show last year, the famous black squareback!

Volksworldshow 4

Belgian car on the show.  Stefan's 1963 Karmann Ghia Convertable. He had nice company of an other vert, the black 1958 karmann beetle in the back of the picture.

Volksworldshow 5

Race car's on display, like VW Gasser's garage EBI dragster.

Peter's new vert

Our clubmember Peter got a new project car.  He always wanted an early karmann Beetle and here she is.  55 vert's aren't that easy to find, so Peter's happy with this one.  Check out his blog for more pictures and some first steps to the dressing up...

Karmann Ghia was the theme this year and I can't remember a other Belgian Meeting with more lowlight ghia's in the past...  Well done Freddy, the weather didn't stop no hardcore VW-enthousiasts...

I hadn't seen this platina lowlight before.  This 1956 was stunning, still in it's original paint...

This Ghia was nice, sprintstars on a lowlight do work well ;-), but the car does need a lot TLC, the owner had a lot of guts to dair to drive it like this...

Engish Old School Bug for sale

When my car was on the Volksworldshow for the first time in 2000, this car was there to and it was stunning and still looks like it today.  It has a hot IDA motor and everything a callook bug should have.  Didn't see the car much more after that show...  follow the link http://cal-look.no/lounge/index.php/topic,4475.0.html

English bug for sale

I was allready happy to be able to built a hot street 1776cc back then, but this one had a stroker on IDA's.  And it sounds great as far as I remember...

Lowlight bodywork started

A friend of my parents offered to do the bodywork on my 1957 lowlight.  He was a body-guy back in the sixties for VW's importer D'Ieteren in Belgium.  He wanted to do it again and I'm happy that he still knows how to do it good.

My lowlight bodywork 1

You will see in a few weeks what happened then...

Hope to turn it on to a smooth ride like this one below...
