Motornights 2.0

Motornights 2.0

After the Motornights as we know it were banished from Korneuburg, this month’s gathering took a twist and was held in the Freudenau which is part of the 2nd district of Vienna. New location new problems, because at the same time next to it a golf and riding tournament took place and we all shared one parking lot. But all this didn’t stop the cars of all types and years taking part at this season finale. The new place obviously hasn’t…

Late Summer Ride 2018

Late Summer Ride 2018

The 15th of September marked the 6th Late Summer Ride hosted by DLV. Held at the parking lot on the Kahlenberg – the local mountain of Vienna – this event always attracts drivers from the City, Lower Austria and beyond. The main part is the common ride over the famous Höhenstraße, where we built up a convoy of about 60 vehicles. If you’re looking for a relaxed Saturday cruise at the end of summer, bring up your air-cooler and visit us…

Motor Nights – Season Opener

Motor Nights – Season Opener

Today we visited the first Motornights in 2018 which take place every first Friday from May to October. The number of cars and visitors was enormous at this season opener in the old shipyard in Korneuburg. Check out the pictures and get sure not to miss the next event on 1st of June.  

Eggenburg 2018

Eggenburg 2018

For the 28th time the international bug meeting in Eggenburg took place. It wasn’t the season opener for us but always a annual must in spring. Over 500 cars attended, so a few of them had to park outside because there wasn’t enough space. Maybe they shouldn’t have let so many water-cooled cars inside in the first place…

Autumn Ride

Autumn Ride

Last Sunday we met in a group of six air-cooled cars – five bugs and one Trabant – at the parking lot on the Kahlenberg, where normally our Late Summer Ride takes place. Due to the fact that we couldn’t host it this year because of organisational reasons, we decided to make a smaller version for ourselves and made a trip trough the Vienna Woods.

Bug Show Fürstenfeld

Last Sunday we visited the biennial bug meeting in Fürstenfeld which took place in the area of the outdoor pool. More than 350 cars were counted, among them three Schwimmwagen. Here’s a small selection!

We had a great time at the second “Luftgekühlt am See” which was again top organised by the Käfer-Club Obergrafendorf. Among the 170 vehicles there could be spotted some very nice ones before chilling at the lake with a cold beer. What more could you ask for?  

Meeting in Laxenburg

Meeting in Laxenburg

Every second year the VW-Käfer und Bulli Liebhaberclub Laxenburg hosts a meeting at the old campsite in their hometown. We came with four bugs and true to the motto “quantity rather than quality” we didn’t get a top ten award but a prize for being the second largest club at the event.

Classic car show in Tulln

Today a small group of us visited the annual “Oldtimer Messe” in Tulln. We arrived very early to secure ourselves a place in the parking lot inside of the area reserved for vintage cars only, so we could also be part of the exhibition. Many well known people of the scene could also be found there.

Meeting in Eggenburg 2017

Meeting in Eggenburg 2017

Today was the kick-off of the meeting season for us. With five bugs we travelled to the 27th international bug meeting in Eggenburg. Especially for Jan it was a very successful visit, who made the second place in the category special class with his 1600i “Open Air”.

VolksWorld Show 2017 – Summer Lawn

The last of four entries shows the summer lawn where the bulk of the buses have parked. It’s always a fantastic experience at the VolksWorld Show – trip to Esher has fully paid off!

All good things come in threes

All good things come in threes

After two of our members got themselves a panel van – Flo with his ’63 split window and Benjamin with his late bay – the next logical step for Gregor was to buy an air-cooled van of the third generation. It’s from 1980 and comes with a 2.0 litre type 4 engine.  

Late Summer Ride 2016

Late Summer Ride 2016

Today was the 5th anniversary of our annual meeting. Despite having some difficulties and organisational problems in the planning process, we had a great day and time to catch up with our air-cooled friends. Allthough it was rather cold and windy, 40 rides made their way up to the Kahlenberg parking lot. Unfortunately we couldn’t provide an extensive catering this year, but we had hot coffee and sweet snacks. As a special treat we had a giveaway with beautiful air-cooled…
