Yesterday, the newsmagazine “Heute” published something about Herbie’s World Tour. The picture was taken in the Atacama Desert of Chile on our trip across South America.   We’ve already done 150,000 kilometers so far and our 34 horsepower are still running.

Yesterday, we, “Die Luftverkühlten” (or DLV), took a ride. Four Bugs and a LT followed the route of our “Late Summer Ride” (LSR) which will take place in September. Afterwards we sat together in Domi’s former family home chatting about VW stuff.

After Flo helped Domi to get his second Herbie back from Upper Austria, they made a visit to Waldhausen, where Friedrich and Matthias spend their Weekend.
