Rally Babes "Rally Brudar"

video

A fantastic new film is coming to the movies this atumn. Hopefully not only in Sweden, but at least the rest of Scandinavia. In this trailer it looks like they have caputured the true atmosphere of 60 ies rally in the woods. Really looking forward to this =) Not all VW, but still...

Hudson Eight




This lovely "russ-car" was found at the same place. This car is awësome. The car was painted 30 years ago, and then just parked outside. Look at this fantastic patina!

Oval57`s latest catch



This 1952 floorpan was used as a "crosscart" 30 years ago. Last night our 12 V-friend "Boblehue" and I picked it up!

I saw this for the first time in 2003. Will it be ready for BugRun?

Lost and found






The sechs-volt-fox has been out sniffing around in the woods lately.
Here is the result after a 130 km trip. As you can see, this poor bastard has had a pretty hard life... R.I.P

Weather forecast for paradise road the coming week:


Danger for splits in the road…..beware of bias-ply dust and high-comp exhaust…

Countdown to Bug Run #25


The 6V garage have busy days, and are counting days to our annual tour to Sweden. Not counting because we are waiting, only because we are afraid to not finish our rides in time... But we have not failed yet, and will not be defeated this year either. Yesterday we had a break through, and the first split (zwitter) rolled out of the garage self powered. Man oh man what a feeling. After two years of welding rust, and then finally put the padal to metal, is undescribable. But we still need the days left to get our rides prepared for the long jurney in three weeks. More rides to be ready soon =)

A new link

We did put in a new link. This time the true VW-nut Erik Nesmoen. He got a very nice carpark.
If you visit his site you will see that he got more than this (what is it really?) "car".

7000 HITS


Unfornately the blog is not updated so often these days, but the hours are used well in the garage. There are a few secrets kept away from the blog so far. The crew is trying to beat the deadline for the annual Mantorp trip. I think quite some pictures and other stuff will be released close to take off to Swden in the beginning of june. Be patient =)
