What's the recipe then?

Do you think cal-look is the coolest thing since the invention of ice cubes, but don't know quite HOW to build your own? Well...this simple and informative illustration might give you some clues.

How low can you go?

If it ain't low - it ain't no lowrider. You simply can't get any lower than this without getting stuck on a fly's pubic hair.

Got air?

To adjust the rear shock absorbers, you simply fill them with air, or let air out, through a valve under the rear bumper. As you fill 'em up, the car gets a familiar ass up stance! The two absorbers are connected with a hose, and the air is distributed evenly between them. Strange concept...

A tight fit

Now how the hell do you change spark plugs in here? The bulky thing on the left is the air condition unit.

Cruising

Since there has been very little progress with my 67 these days, I spent the last sunny day we had out cruising with my friend Marius in his recently US-imported Super Beetle Convertible. The car has only been driven 19.000 miles since it was new in 1979, and the driving experience is absolutely fantastic! Now where did I put my sunglasses...?

Boring car...or not!

I was out on a quick spin with this sexy little Lamborghini Gallardo earlier today. Absolutely fookin' insane!!! I'm glad it had four wheel drive and traction control. A friend of a friend brought it home from Sweden yesterday...wonder where he makes his money?!

New windows and rubber

The old and dry window rubber was swapped for new cal-look rubber, and Anders Letmolie kindly let me "borrow" his side windows with some cool vintage stickers on! Grant steering wheel and Berg shifter inside. Image is everything!

Mr. Spray

TomR is working his magic with the spraycan...at least that's what it says on his shirt: "Best in test". The awesome oval in the background is TomR's pride and joy...and his current nightmare.

Fender respray

The new fenders were sprayed in the car's original color code L595 Fontana Grey.

More stuff

The front fenders with sloping headlights were swapped for US ones, and the front beam is a fairly new adjustable one. (It looks kinda offroad in these pictures, but it will NOT look like this for very long!) Inside there is a Berg shifter and a fat Grant steering wheel. Doorpanels will be retrimmed with black diamond stitch.

Things are happening

This is my "new" 67 that I hope will be out and running very soon. The car is kept mainly stock (for now) but a few modifications are done to it. Firstly all the breaking parts are new, from the master pump to the drums and crossdrilled discs with studs pressed in to fit the sexy Gasburners. Oh la-la!!

First post

So here we are...just trying to get things started with this blog. This is a picture of my previous bug, a 67 1500. I will soon post some pics of my recent bug, also a 67 1500, but with a few modifications from stock...sadly not in the engine compartment though. The car is not driveable at the moment, as the brakes are missing, but I'm planning to sort that one out this weekend.
