Friends of the house

A nice container load; 1952 and 1953 convertible plus a half a container of BBT parts….

We loaded a container for Friend of da Houze Lloyd for shipping to California USA.
Lloyd bought some real nice cars this time.

A driver condition 1952 split window convertible he bought in Germany and we helped him to find this ultra rare and very desirable top restored 1953 zwitter convertible.
Oh, and we loaded a half of the container with BBT parts too…. 🙂

BBT Tim & Ray for sure had fun!

BBT Tim crawling over the boxes to fill up every little space….

Because of too many parts we had to stack the cars on top of each other, so we had to build a platform. The 52 we lifted up so we could park the 53 below…

Secured by the master! BBT Ray at work!

That’s how the container looked fully loaded, its all on board… theirs a lot that fit a 40ft HC container…:)

We still choose the old school way to secure freight and cars.

Learned from old harbor union workers…. Steel reinforced rope turned up with wool lats.

So much stronger as Chinese rattle straps some shippers use….

Peter took delivery of the 1957 Palm Green Sand Green with brand new SWT chassis installed…

This bus came already a long way, after we testfitted a complete new SWT chassis….

Peter came by last week to pick “his new baby” up and will save max on patina…

This will be a monster!

Here’s a picture as found… in the Northern Swedish forest some years ago…:)

and in Andy’s workshop to testfit and install our SWT chassis…

 

 

Sweats and goodies!

Heather and Reed Cowan from Ojai California are well known in the Californian VW scene.

Vivid VW “Thing” collectors (and anything Volkswagen with that) they pose here with their brand new BBT hoodies before their daily driver convertibles.

These guys are much fun to hang out with, talking out of experience….

Thanks for supporting the BBT brand guys….

Next Cali trip we come by for more Ojai VW fun for sure!
