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.

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

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

Long time for the lowlight

Hey, it's a long time since I have posted a lowlightpicture on my blog and that's a shame, so here we go.  This is a 1957 lowlight being sandblasted.  It's a very nice example from Christophe in France.  Keep up the good work, boy.

67 callook for sale 4

I saw this car on the samba and it looks very right, special bits as white needle empi gauges, hot 1776cc with Bergspecials, cabrio decklid, nice interior,...  It must have cost a fortune to build this car.  So to all female visitors of my blogs who live in the UK, have an aircooled husband and no newyears gift yet, go for it!

Education in the right way

If you take your kids to Plopsaland indoor in Hasselt (B), they can already feel how it is to drive a Volkswagen.  This attraction sponsored by Volkswagen, sure was my son Luka's favorite!

After all these features of Kurt's Ruby Red Callook in the magasines, you can image why he wanted to drive a red one.

How cool is this engine bay...

I can't help freaking about the vertex style magneto's on hot street engines.  Available in the states ready to use, these items rock on a hot engine like this.
