Interstate in Lake Elsinore California must be one , if not the last, big VW junkyard in California, I got a nice tour and was very impressed…
Impressions I like to share with you! …:)
Loaded up a lot of sheetmetal I bought over 10 years ago, time to get that home…
Some thought the rusty crew cab was useless, well it carried a big load of doors home for me…:)
First ferry, from Helsingor to Helsingborg… Dze Audi is first on board!…:)
This bridge I like very much…
Especially it prevents me from having to schwimm…:)
On the parking lot waiting for the second and last ferry…
The port of Putgarden… almost ready for the last 750 km home…
Because of a autobahn “Vollsperr” on the A1 in Bremen I was guided over Hannover, and passed Volkswagen Nutsfahrzeuge… always cool to see the tower! …
Home sweet home… sleeping in my own bed….hmmmmmm….:)
What a trip…4150 km, all with trailer… Dze Audi did a great job!! Can’t wait to hook the trailer up and leave again…
Thanks for following my adventures…:) ,
On my way back home I had a few stops to check out some cars from friends… the super nice spring weather gave me so cool pictures…
The next stop was at this old house from 1931, how cool starts this story? and more of it, what’s behind that house???
Well there was a garden shed, home-made as we all can tell…:)
In the garden shed was a Peek a boo hole…:)
Now these forms get a little more exciting!
Yes this is a split!
And another one! nice patina on this one!
I thought this was super cool, and hope you like the pictures too!
Will they come to Belgium? More than likely, but only future will tell!
Ok a couple of more stops down the road, have to load some sheet metal too, hopefully with more cool pictures, so stay tuned!
Ok first, don’t even try to pronounce the name of the town, You will not come even close…:)
Second, this is a good show, small and cozy, not worth driving 2000km, but since I had to be here, I’m happy I stopped by… so nice people and very cool cars… here’s my small report!
Setting was perfect on a campground who also hired “Stuga” (Cabins) and off course it was lake side, in north Sweden its hard to do something not at a lake side as there are lakes everywhere!
Cool buses, … cool guys too!
Enough patina? This is what you like, don’t ya?
Cool Bay Double cab, hard-working!
Ex Swedish army came all the way from Sundsvall,
The black beetle was practically broken in two pieces when they got it from behind a barn! They just pieced it back together…
Extreme cool patina oval ragtop; came out of the rafters from a barn…
And yes, there’ was a BBT convoy badge, this guy drove last year with us to Hessisch!
How cool comes this crew cab peaking behind the little house? I like this picture a lot! The crew cab might come for sale soon… in case you’re fancy…:)
a small line up at the entry… very welcoming…:)
Oh yes on friday night we eat all the Reindeer spaghetti!
Here’s the pile, and yes it was good! very good!
Extreme cool and well detailed Oval Eriba Puck combo, unbelievable nicely made and a cool owner too!
BBT’s distributor for Sweden is VW Up North, and Mauri, the owner came down all the way in his all original pick up truck to join! This pick up truck was saved from the junkyard, it’s entirely first original paint, believe me or not!
a small sticker ceremony!
Not bad for a white guy… I was till the last question second in a music quiz, … nothing very special except the presentation and questions came in Swedish!
Always nice to pack your “surprise” to enter a show… a lot of audience guaranteed!
So what was under the tarp??
A 1950 splitwindow beetle (or the remains at least) saved from the woods only couple of days before…
The two brothers that started this show 29 editions ago…
1953 convertible all original…. droooling!!
50 & 53 convertible…. what a pair!
This is Kermit, the only Frog who looks like a human being!! ..:) Kermit runs the show, and is just a hell of a guy!
Thanks Kermit for everything, I had a hell of a weekend!
another cool looker…
Here’s that crew cab again… it’s a 77 but made to fool everybody in to the correct early looks… this is for sale by the owner, if You’re interested just contact me…
Ah! That 50 split again…. Believe me or not, the rear window was hacked out 25 years ago, to put in a 65 beetle….
How cool can they be???
Ragtops are cool, no discussion about that!
Serious amount of visitors on Saturday!
All the way from Göteborg completely in the South; that’s a lot of kilometers for this Wide 5 club member…
Best sticker of the show…
Ok catch the road for more, starting our journey home with some very interesting stops… are You coming along?
Long time friend and real VW guy Woffe makes a couple of real nice sheet metal parts, I promised him a visit for many many years, finally I can take that from my bucket list…:)
Very welcoming when You enter the city of Gävle about 150km north of Stockholm…
Inside is a pretty impressive operation, with lots of jigs and measuring tools to check on his quality…
Very clearly this guy knows what he’s doing, and has a large aim for quality!
Outside is a cool parking lot!
Woffe also have his own “private stash” of cars… many comes with a story…
This 1950 split he swapped for a Bumper and a front hood from another beetle, believe me or not!
Every one of his twin boys got a Karmann Ghia for the 1st birthday, they turned 30 last week, talking about long-term owner ship!
Visited, checked and 100% approved… by yours truly!
ok hit the road again, further North, way North!!
Voted for You… best Burger in Sweden! Believe me!
Roads and landscapes get’s more beautiful the more north You go, perfect season, everything nice and green!
Sometimes they slow You down a little… loads of woods are everywhere! And yes this is still the major freeway, E4 North to South, on many places single lane street!
Final destination! More North we don’t go this trip… I’m 2000km North from home!
Today I visit the Bug Convention, the longest running aircooled Vw show in Sweden, this year edition 29!
So stay tuned for a full report!
