Some of my colleagues where at Essen motorshow this year, and brought home some pictures for me, so thought I would share a few cool one's with you, What do you think about this lady coloured split pick-up on air?
I just love this flower 1302, the special thing I like the most about this car, is that it's Annette's own car, and completely like she likes it. We where at Le bug show in Belgium last year, and she drowe all the way down there, and home again, think she just love to drive her car. Then Guller her husband sits on the passenger seat, or in another car, with the camera, but don't think it matters that much for Annette as long as she's behind the steering wheel of her flower car. Looking forward to the 2008 seson, and to go to some car shows with you people, it's always great company to go with you. Wonder where we are going next time?
Thanks a lot guys for a nice sunday at the garage, it's a nice thing to go to the Angora garage for a Christmas get together, keep that tradition up guys. And thanks to the girls, Søren's sistes for making pancakes, they where great, and Henriette and Line to, for heating them up and making hot mulled wine.
Got this picture from back in the days, it's taken to Bug Stop skagen, where Thomas G, my brother Stefan and I where at. At that time the 2 others didn't own a aircooled car, so the 3 of us where all driving in my 1959 type 1 together to the Bug stop meet. I think it's from 1998. I owned this car for about 5 years before I sold it to another guy also named Thomas, so it still drives arround here in the city.
Or coolers, Peter "accessorie guru" Nielsen, was dropping by for some evening dinner and some VW talk. He brought his "new" nice small Coca Cola cooler with him, so we just took a picture with mine 2 coolers, think it's some kind of cool?
A couple of weeks ago I was helping Thomas Gissel putting his Razor away for the winter, it's now parked in his garage side by side with her sister, his 1960 bug. The day we put it away we was talking about the difference in the height of the 2 cars, a standard high bug and a lowered Razor, think it's not just a little difference.
This saturday I was with Gustav T. at the panelbeaters workshop to pick-up his "new" Razor. It have been half a year with wondering about, and missing, the car, but I think the people that have give the car it's life back, have done a great job. Congrads with having your "new" car back Gustav, and thanks for lunch.
This is Peter "plade", he owns this very sweet 1954 ragtop bug, which has been Peter's for a lot of years, and hopefully it will still be for a long long time. I belive you can say that this car is more then just a car it's a part of Peter and none of them will work very well without each other I think. "Pladen" have this special ability to collect accessories, and not only accessories but all the right stuff for the car, and the year it was build. It's no wunder he's the leader of the accessorie sect. Make sure to take a look at this car, the next time you have a chance for it, it's realy something special.
Finaly it's back in to very good shape again, nice to see the red beauty got it's show car life back. Think it will be a long vinter, waiting to the spring time now. Looking forward to go crusing with you again next seson Gustav.
I have never seen a New Beetle like this before, but yesterday i did, at Windfeld Exclusive cars in Silkeborg where it's up for sale. Maybe it's more special, then pretty, but if you buy it you will be the only one in Denmark with a farmer New beetle. What do you think about it?
I was in the JohnDooVeeDubs club this weekend, for the Christmas party this year, funny stuff always happens out there when theres a party. Thanks guy's for a great saturday evening. Make sure to visit their site, see the link in favorit pages.
This is Mikkel "bil ting" from Silkeborg, he is the lucky owner of this super sweet silver notchback. My brother (Bette Winther), Mikkel and I went on a one day trip to Sweeden to buy the notch for Mikkel, it was one funny trip, and as you can see on the picture he was happy on the way home to. Since then Mikkel have done a lot with the car, and with a very nice result I think. He is not afraid to try something extreme with the car, some liked the big chrome rims, some don't, but next season I belive it will go on fuch's rims.
This is my new cool book from 1961 with accessories from that time for your Volkswagen, think it's very nice, with a matching pricelist. How about a complete Hazet tool kit for 16 Euro, but ya i know i was a lot of money back in 1961, but any way.
For some weeks ago, I was on the harbour in Aarhus with Kenneth Nielsen who loves his photo gear, he would like to test some new gear he just bought, so we drove down there to shoot some pictures, sadly the rain was falling all evening, but i think it turned out pretty good any way. Here a few sambels from that evening, hope you like them?
I went to swapmeet Herning, with Peter and Jens today, thanks for a nice day guys. I was dropping by this cool type 34 toy ghia, but 100 Euro is also some price don't you think? So the only investment for me was this nice book about Volkswagen bus.
This Saturday we had our first visitors in the new garage, for a soda and some hanging up posters, hope to see you soon again guys, I enjoid that Saturday think it was a great day, in the spirit of Volkswagens.
Meet our friend Thomas Gissel, he is the owner of a sweet untouched bone stock 1960 type 1, and a sweet 1965 type 34 Karmann Ghia, so his biggest problem with these 2 cars are which one to choose when he want to go cruisen.
As Gustav mentioned on his blog, we have some kind of a passion for early watercooled Volkswagens. Stefan owens a sweet usefull red/brown 1981 diesel. I have owend a nice red 1983 diesel, and 2 in gasoline, one from 1979 and a 1983 5 doors which i still own. But you have to have a daily driver, and why not drive with some kind of old school style.
Meet our friend Gustav T. he is the very lucky owner of a handful of sweet cars, the pic's speak for themselves. Hope to see the razor edge back in good shape soon. Gustav is always in for some VW talk, a good advise, or just a nice time and a Coke. I would say that the right words for him would be:" You can take the man out of the VW, but you can't take the VW out of the man." Hope to see you soon Gustav.
