Last weekend it was time to go “Home to Fürstenfeld”, like in the austrian song by STS. Benjamin, Chris, Flo, Georgy and Fabi visited the show which takes place every second year. It was a great day with over 400 aircooled VW’s. Have a look: …sadly the meeting endet quickly because of a heavy shower!

At the Slovakian Border

At the Slovakian Border

On the weekend we visited a gathering of air-cooled Volkswagens in Angern an der March, right at the border to Slovakia. But it was so hot at that day (104°F or 40°C in the shade), that we just spent a couple hours at the meeting. Now we’re looking forward to our annual event called “Late Summer Ride” on September 15!

During a 6-day London vacation DLV visited the annual VolksWorld Show at Sandown Park – Esher near London. It was quite a great expirience to be on a Volkswagen meeting where we’ve seen so much of rusted out and fully done vehicles. Here we try to give you a small brief insight of what we’ve spotted.

That’s it – DLV Late Summer Ride

Today our first meeting and public ride over the famous Höhenstraße in Vienna took place. Over 50 aircooled vehicles were counted – much more than we had expected – and this causes a little traffic-chaos. Nevertheless we are happy about our event and look forward to next year with a bit more organization and maybe more members too! Thanks a lot to all who joined our Late Summer Ride!
