Greetings from Greece

Splitboy - sadly away from his beloved oval and the rest of the 6V crew (but toghether with his beloved daughter) works hard to keep busy during the hot greece summer days.

Not a single 6V i sight, this "custom" vw was found in some small greek town...I don't know the powerplant, but it is sure something with water in it....

Luckily, I have the "how to hot rod vw engines" book with me at all times at the beach, to keep 6V spirits high and the head clear and cold.... =)

Sechs volt summer vacation

As everyone in Norway and the rest of Europe are frying their bacon at the beach, the true sechs volt enthusiasts hold on to their steeringwheels. Oval 57 reporting from the mountains of Norway, cruising along with his two "Misses". Knechten and Fürsten still stuck in the city, just kicking tyres, and waiting for a new sechs volt Jr to arrive. Splitboy is stretching the club rules by heading south, without his oval...

356-engine - collecting parts

Oval57 are putting together a industrialengine from Porsche 356. On the pics is some of the parts he tracked down this weekend. Yes, it is holiday, but you cant sleep because of that? The deal was done at BugRun, and my parents picked up the parts on their way home from south Europe last week.

Thanks for stoping by, keep on looking:)

11 000 Hits!

We have 11 000 visitors and no one seems to supervise the blog these days, due to holidays in Norway. Rumors says the sechs volt boys are doing only non vw related stuff these days. Well thats the official story, something must be happening, check the project blogs??? Enjoy the fresh VW poster!

Say no more...

For months I've been trying to track down this 51 vert. Yesterday lots of research and work finally payed off. Three guys drove over 600 km yesterday to make it happen. Its not a perfect car, but HEY - its a 51 vert for cryin' out loud!

As you can see, I was pretty tired and happy after a long and VERY rainy day.
