Double grooooooved

I've only seen two of these bumpers. One on a swedish split and the other one is stored in my basement :-) Both of them are rear bumpers. Is there a third out there somewhere??

Strange batwing hornring

At the Volksworld show in London earlier this year I spotted this strange batwing hornring.
I think it is homemade. What do you think?

At Møllers showroom in Oslo

Last night Møller, the Norwegian VW importer, had invited Veteran VW Klubben to their showroom in Oslo. Around 50 members showed up, and had a guided tour among the cars lined up. For the Sechs volt, the barndoor panel van and the split window beetle was the highlights of the tour. Then a Norwegian rallye legend, Monty Karlan with over 40 starts in the Monte Carlo rallye, showed some movies and shared some good stories. The response from the listeners was enthusiastic, and I think everyone had a great time. Maybe we see some challenge-rallye participants from the sechs volt garage in the future? *Knechten*

Reconstructing the split vert

Getting the vert back on the road will not be an easy task. I've been preparing the car and donor for a long trip tomorrow. The car will be left in the hands of a professional for a while.
Sorry about the bad picture of the donor car. Picture was taken before i bought it. Now its stored nice, clean and dry.
