They fixed some things to be safe and comfortabe for driving around for the next three weeks! As they picked up Herbie from Randy’s place they had too look at another cool beetle from 1961. Today they are in LA to visit the interesting places of the city. Tomorrow they’ll go to Yuma. Stay tuned! Read more


After two weeks of welding…

The new cross member doesn’t fit... Read more

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. Read more
