Single Cab saved in Vienna

Single Cab saved in Vienna

Yesterday Flo and Benjamin met at a property in the 22nd district of Vienna. There was a fire department single cab standing for more than 20 years. A view months ago the owner cut all the woods and so he opened the view to the transporter from the early sixties. After many calls, Flo was able to meet the owner and bought the car. After removing all the dirt and scrap they were able to determine the bad condition. A view more years…

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…

Flo’s new bug

Flo’s new bug

Flo bought a bug from 1962. He found it on the internet as he was in america and made the deal to pick it up when he’s back. So Flo and Robert a good friend of him went there two weeks later to get the car. There was no rear axle built in and one door is missing. Back in Vienna they put in a correct gearbox and a door. Also they put in a customized tank. Thank you Robert…

Tidy up at the DLV-Barn

In our barn are now more than 40 cars. This is too much and so we decided to go higher. We built in a second floor and a winch to pull the cars of Christian an Benjamin there.

The second week in America

The second week in America

This time Domi and Flo want to show you some impressions of the second week travelling around with Herbie. They have been to Las Vegas, Zion- Nationalpark, Bryce-Canyon-Nationalpark and some other beautiful places! In Vegas they went to Justin’s workshop the “Beetle Barn” to fix the magnetic plug of the differential because it was completely rounded from so many oil changes. They also visited the “Neon Museum” to see some of the old signs which they keep the history and to…

Touring with Herbie trough the US

Touring with Herbie trough the US

Domi and Flo are already cruising around to see the beauty of America. They went from Ridgecrest to Yuma, Tucson, Flagstaff, Mexican Hat and yesterday to Green River. On their way they saw famous places like the Grand Canyon, Highway 95, Monument Valley and the popular street from Easy Rider. Sadly as they drove away from Monument Valley Herbie’s windshield broke! So they had to get a new one and went all the way (about 350 miles) to Kustom Coach Werks – a great aircooled shop-…

Last Thursday Domi and Flo took a plane to the USA. They flew to LA and then rent a car to get to Ridgecrest where Herbie was situated. 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…

After two weeks of welding…

After two weeks of welding…

Flo has already known it for a long time, his loved bug from 1966 is verry rusty! He decided to do it the right way and seperared the car in two parts so he could repair it like it was new. He put in a new heaterchannel, a cross memper under the rear seat and a repair section for the rear quater panel. He also did a lot of welding in the front and rear wheelhouses and the firewall. The…

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

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.

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.

International Alpe-Adria bug meeting 2016

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…

When the sun sets…

…the sound of italian one-cylinders, german flat-fours and american V8 engines comes over Korneuburg. They all meet at the old shipyard beside the danube – a great location for spending the first Friday evening every month.    

Koller’s Oldtimer

Koller’s Oldtimer

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.

The Birthday Buggy

The Birthday Buggy

Last weekend we celebrated Christian’s 30th birthday with a very special present. To thank him for his help on various projects of ours, we decided to build him a chassis for a new buggy – something that he had been wanting to do for a long time. Because this project was already discussed in the past, we know exactly what parts should be used. A 1303 rear axle with semi-trailing arms and a balljoint front axle for the best handling…
