For the eleventh time the 1. Kärntner VW-Käferclub organised their biennial meeting for all air-cooled Volkswagen in Bodensdorf at the Ossiacher Lake, which we always look forward to. Our group of ten elephant feet tail lights featured some specials like a jubilee bug and the „Open Air“ of our new member Jan. Benjamin mounted his new wheels and Christian brought his old Buggy back on the streets – still without roof and braving the weather. But luckily most of the time the weather held up,... Read more

Juni 27, 2016 Meetings 0

This saturday we went to the Strudengauers‘ meeting in Grein, which is always pleasant and matey, even though they hadn’t the weather on their side the last years. This time it meant to be better, as the temperature was up, sun was shining, no rain was in sight and a bunch of real nice pieces of old metal showed up. Around noon most of the participants got on the tour and we left as well. When we returned, we immediately realized there was something wrong, as smoke... Read more

After so many times we passed the oldtimer museum on our way travelling to the bug show in Eggenburg, we decided to visit it on Saturday. We have seen more than 150 exhibits of 130 years of automobile history! Especially fascinating were the cars made in Austria by Puch and Steyr or the self-made sportscar „Angelmar“ based on Volkswagen and Porsche 356 parts. Note that only five or six cars of this huge collection are not privately owned by Mr. Koller. Read more

…that’s the name of another monthly meeting in the place to meet – the old shipyard in Korneuburg near Vienna, where a crane and brick halls form the background for Old- and Youngtimer of all brands, US-cars, motorbikes and of course vintage VWs. Due to the huge squad of  vehicles I decided to concentrate the pictures on the latter. Read more

In a convoy of six beetles – year of construction from 1963 to 1996 – we hit the road to Eggenburg in Lower Austria. Every year on May 1 there takes place the biggest meeting of air-cooled Volkswagen in Austria. Although it is far from the size of the famous Maikäfertreffen in Hannover where we have been last year, we could also spot some nice rides. Watch out! Read more
