What a blast!

While some of us are making final adjustments to our rides before the 1. of may cruise madness, Guller is working on something to cruise in for years to come. This weekend he got the body blasted and primed. A step I always thought of as a milestone in a project. I know small welding jobs will always occure but it looks a lot better once its all in the same color. I would like you to use the comments box to cheer on Guller as he has had a long road to this point. Good work Guller!

34.000 hits

The watch is showing horrificly early digits - 5:10! Once again I have worked through the night to be able to go to Hannover on wednesday. I hope to get a little time off later today to get the last things done on the ghia. I hope you foregive me for not posting a lot these days but work is crazy.

Know your real friends...

Soon we will be going on a road trip to Hannover. More cars than ever will surely join the pilgrimage and we have a policy that no one gets left behind in case of a breakdown that can be solved. I borrowed this flick of the T3D blog (se links) and the first 60 seconds got me wondering. Holy mother of jesus that is a lot of cars! what if one of those cars break down? I bet they just keep on truckin´. But no the answer is 1:36 min. down the line. I think its Rikki James with a cup of java on his knees and people buzz around handing tools trying to help out. So, if you never had a break down on the way to a show, remember that it is just a matter of time and you will appreciate those staying behind with you once you do. No matter how cool your car is some small part made in china can leave you on the hard shoulder with oil on your pants.

Another hidden treasure

I went to a meeting in the classic car club I recently bacame a member of, The Stray Dogs. The club is quite big and theres is still a lot of people there I have yet to meet. The guy next to me talked to another guy and my ears became as big as 1303 tailights when he talked about a vw cab that he had in his barn. When I asked him he told me tha he was living three houses down the road and he would love to show it to me. A 66 model in very good condition living in my neck of the woods and I didn´t know. I love how life comes up with new twists and turns every day. The guy, Morten, was an enthusiast in spe I think, and a very friendly man.

The blue hat blues

In danish there is a saying: Sometimes you can´t see the forest for trees. I just discovered my longtime friend and vintage part detective Peters fairly new blog. Peters blog has substance. I really like when theres actually words under the pictures and I prefer pictures that has relevance to the blogger. Peter is lucky enough to have most of the superrare accesories that most "Blue hats" only dream about. If you want to actually learn more about the early days of vw motoring you should visit his blog. Find the link in my favourites.

New vw shop in Denmark

As some of you know, my father travels frequently to tokyo, Japan and brings home parts for me. We have been planning for some time to set this practice into a bigger scale. I have decided to sell the advertising business to one of my bigger clients and follow my lifelong dream of owning my own vw shop right here in Denmark. We will await the first shipments of parts at the beginning of may and will operate out of this old Fiat dealership in my hometown. I would love to hear comments if you plan to use my shop who will off course also be internetbased. The daily phone orders will be handled by my first cousin Gatja, who is a really nice girl, and I hope this will work out fine. The name of the business is not decided yet, so ideas are also welcome.
