Another year has passed

To round off 2007 I will post my favorite picture of the year. This picture show Brezelfürsten in his rally rigged 53 oval. With a 1750 ccm engine, the car packed a lot more power than the drivability could deal with. Going all the way to Mantorp with white knuckles was all worth it. Fürsten also giving full throttle on the raceway after closing hours, makes for good memories from 2007. When it all comes down to it, it's the attitude it's all about, NOT the polish...

6V Babe - Edition 7

Friday again, and we need a new 6V Babe to light up the darkness of winter. Once again the photografer has not quite managed his job. Put the girl in the background and the car foreward, and we have a winner =)

Abarth 30 Hk tuning kit

As we have a thing for nostalgia speed parts, some of the OutlaVWs boys are always sniffing around for more more. This time a combined gut-feel among two of the OutlaVWs brought this carburator kit into the garage. We don't know much about it yet, other that it fits like a glove on a 30 Hk (36 Hp) engine. The intake manifolds are marked with the "Abarth" logo, and the aircleaners with "F.I.S.P.A Torino". The carburators seem to be Solex 32 PBIC as far as we can tell. The linkage is missing, but seem to be some kind of "kadron" type. We are aware of the Abarth mufflers available for 30 Hk engines, but have only read somwhere that Abarth submitted tuning parts for VW. So ofcourse we are very interested in any information on this carburator kit, especially any photo or an old ad that can show the linkage.

Norwegian Schwimmwagen test

    Here is a movie from an article posted in a norwegian newspaper called Tønsbergs Blad earlier this summer. It shows Sven Almåsbakk testing his 1943 model 166 Schwimmwagen in the water for the first time since 1970, after thousands of hours of restoration. This is according to the article one of four drivable Schwimmwagens in Norway. Here is the rest of the article:

    6V Babe - Edition 5

    To make a grey monday in december a little brighter, we welcome 6V girl number five. Although the girl try her best to show off her self and a big-window fifthies car, we are somehow not that tempted. It would take a lot more for us to move across the 57 barriere. She would have looked a lot better in a split, don't you think?
