The works

Stripping the bus was done by Frank and his brother Pete who will assist us with the bus on our way to EBI.

Master of the bodywork is clubmember Gino who completly runned over the body and putted everything straight again. He used lots of filler, because the panel's wheren't that straight....

Mad?

Is this mad or not? After having some damaging over the last years, the Samba needed some TLC and a fresh paint. Only 15 days to go untill EBI, but she will be ready. Here is a pic of one of the little damages.....Our official party-animal Frank who drives this bus most of the time has been specializing in driving on 3 wheels....

UPS bus

Very cool bus and the best splitscreen at the VW-nationals came indeed from Belgium.  Very tasty color and accesoires...

Oh, what about those fender skirts for busses, I love them.

Or is it the airride system?

I'm sure some of you will love it, but the interior wasn't a hit for me.

This razor edge KG is one of the best customs I've ever seen.  The owner is rader a shy guy as his beautiful car is always hidden away.  It was like that in 2005 when we first saw it and this year it was parked next to the swapmeet and normal carparking.

Sven of the Benzine Saufers brought over his vintage beach buggy now with flower roof, look at those nice backtires and wheels below...

Super VW nationals

Just got back from the super vw nat. in France and it was a nice weekend.  Sunday was a hell of weather but the day before was awsome.  Check this blog for more pictures in a few days...

The nostalgia corner was the place to be for callookers.  I could not be there with my 66 callook (came with the daily driver and family), so I misted out my place there.

Gastcook

We also hired in a gast-cook who's gonna make us Cote à Los with Belgium Frensh Fries.  He is not known in the VW scene.  Some tell he was in the pornindustrie before he started cooking Cote à Los...

Bugtour 2007

Yesterday we had a nice and plesant drive from Liedekerke to Merelbeke...  The anual Bugtour organised by the DVF vw-club of Ghent.   This is the other site of VW-driving.  Not only to and from a meeting, this event is made to drive our cars.  Approximatly 120 kms of VW fun.  It was a nice day indeed...

Bugtour 2007 2

 

Very nice Karmann Ghia joint the Bugtour.

Bugtour 2007 1

 

This is were it all started...

Bugtour 2007 3

 

Although higher vehicles certainly had a more conforteble drive then the low front end beetles, the true callookers drove the bumpy roads with there proud and joy... or was it becouse they didn't have another car to drive with???  My front drivetrain hit the ground almost 50 times, but it still was a lot of fun.

lowlight red & black

Another nice Red and Black exemple.  Allthough it could use a lowering job and a nice set of wheels.  Not for the purest here...

lowest lowlight

This got to be the lowest lowlight on earth.

Red and black was the most popular color way back than and it still looks good.  This car is missing his chrome lines though.

Erembodegem bis

Woh, I really missed something in Erembodegem last weekend with so many new Flatline-Lowriders cars on display.  Really nice sliding door panel from Gino, The "Miss Bug In" Crewcab from our ingeneer Peter (there are really some cool tricks on the drive train, check http://slambulance.skynetblogs.be for details) and finally Tom was able to get his 1968 Cab on the road again, in Old School stance, new wheels and new double carbed power this time and with a little help from friends...

Toms Callook cab

 

I couldn't make it myself.  I have won a track experience on the circuit of Zolder (B) in a Formule 3000 racetrackcar.  This was indeed a nice think to do and I saw my old friend Thierry over there.   He was happy to join me on the picture :-)

 Erembodegem 2007

Erembodegem 2007.
Nice weather, nice cars. Some of our clubmembers showed there new or pimped rides.
First , Tom's convertable, who received an engine job, new wheel combo and Oldschool stance. See for Yourself!! (lousy picture, but the best i could find.)
tomscabrioinerembodegem

 

Second in row is Gino's new splitbus. Already on the right alloys, fuchs-what else and the right stance. More to follow. ( Gino gives free mouth on mouth breathing-this explains the green cross )

Gino2

 

And last but not least........Slammed, narrowed and Sprintstars in the front...-)

And much more to follow, click at the picture and check for yourself

My beetle

It was beetleday, yesterday.  Gave my beetle a full on megueairs wax-service.  You would say now that this car first came out 10 years ago.  The body feels like a baby's skine, but I guess I'm just the only guy who apreciates work like this.  The pervert in Dr. Detail came out yesterday...

If I had the money and a good place to stock her, this would be my next car... Just lower it and put some sprintstars on her...

I love squarbacks and I hope to own one in the future, but this car inspired my most for it's paintwork.  This is deeeeeeeep black.  I hope my black lowlight ever shines just as much as this car did, great car!

These are the guys who did it, great job!

Just take a look how good you can see the other cars in the paintwork of this one.

Volksworldshow 2007

It was a hell of a show again and I promessed myself not to miss it for the next several years.  Some of the featured cars made it truly to make the effort to get up at 4.45 in the morning and getting back at 23.00.

 

The bus from BUGBOX Germany carried not less then 45 fivelug Empi Sprintstars wheels.  This was the biggest collection of period wheels I ever saw.  And especially the chromed ones unter the bus caught my eye!

Ninove was large!

Last sunday was the annual season opener in Belgium organised by Fastfred and Kobus and it was large, with almost 500 aircooled cars in the cosy city of Ninove with the weather on our site, this was one hell of a meeting.

Ninove 2007 1

 

Ffred was smilling all day long and he sure had reasons for that.

Ninove 2007 2

 

Bob and Linda from BBT came with this oh so gorgious 1960 convertable that everybody liked so much!

Ninove 2007 3

 

Very nice 1967 Der Benzin Saufers callooker took a well diserved TOP 10 award.  Great car with a big engine.

 

See some more pics later on...
