I live in a tourist-town. When winter comes nobody is around and people stay inside. At summer the little towns population grows to that of a metropol. Every summer I run into people that has been on vacation for weeks without seeing a single vw in Ebeltoft allthough there are quite a few in the area. Local people knows the good sense in staying away from the mainroads and to shop elsewhere when tourist season is here. But in the weekend I needed to clear the lot in front of my house for the concrete truck to be able to get in there. My friend Michael let the bus live in his driveway even though he only likes beetles, hyundais and handball (dont ask). A norwegian guy stopped by and told him that he to had owned quite a few v-dubs. He got my mailadress and this morning 50 pictures of different cars were on my desktop! Splits, notches, early pick up and Porsche powered 412´s! Ghias and zwitters - late vanagons and early golf 1s you name it Morten has owned it. I hope you still have a stash somewhere Morten? A shame we didn´t meet..

We finally got going on the new workshop. I wont bore you with dimensions of beams, concrete and stuff. Just to let you know why wrenching, blogging and cruising is a bit on hold. You would think I was over the moon building this big garage, but to me its like a junkie buying a bigger purse for needles, spoons and his stash. I would love to be able to live with one car in a single garage, but i am indeed a very sick man.
