Flåklypa Grand Prix 2009

This weekend, the annual "Flåklypa Grand Prix" vintage rally was held in Lom and Skjåk (Mid-Norway, mountains all around). Splitboys parents took their -63 cab to the rally, an 840 km tour-detour trip. The weather was stunning, and quite a few nice rides to spot as well. The Ghia pictured was on its first race, after being restored and then stored in a barn for nearly 25 years..

This weekend, Skjåk was also the host of a hot rod-meeting, would have loved to show you some rod rides as well....... =)

Picture from 1987 - the 52 Capitan

I got this nice picture in the post for a few days ago. The first norwegian owner have a lot of pictures, but must find them first. I simply can`t wait for more pics! The roof is simply repared at this picture. I looks so complete and nice... somewhere inside the car is it 9 sharp bullets:)

VWedding in Bergen

Splitboy's brother got married this weekend, and as his lovely bride hails from Bergen, the wedding took place there. The drive from church for the newlyweds was of course done in style, in the junglegreen '56 looker. We had a great party, and quite a trip over there as well. Tour-detour we covered 1100 km in the '56 during the weekend(!) The car was filled up with luggage, tools (that were never needed!!), pregnant girlfriend and a ten-year-old in the backseat. The trip was great, but note to self; next time, bring earplugs- especially in the tunnels.... ;-)

Out of order

Splitboys Ghia spotted in the barn this weekend. The text says that it is out of order. Strange? We wish Splitboy the very best for this car as well.
