Callook.dk.....L11 pastellgrün....





Mr.Riishedes oval looker has now recieved a beautiful "splash" of shiny L11 paint, all thanks to paint-gunslinger, Mr. Niels Erik Kristensen ! The car is looking very nice from all angles indeed,-but pity about that great ol' dent under the rear seat.....:)

Danish Nostalgia


Back in the early 80's, some guys from Herning,DK, tried to organize some street/dragracing. Two of the aircooled enthusiasts who attended this event was Mr.Keld Hejlesen ( top picture, 150 hp.2,0 l.type 4 engine) and Mr. Frank Andersen( ? hp.2,?l.type 4 engine) both guys from Aalborg. The IDA's ( now 51,3 mm.) from the split is owned by Mr.Elnef, and the filters and manifolds "lurkes" in my garage somewhere... ;) Pictures from Herning back then,courtesy of Mr.R.Lokdam. ( scanning by Mr.Riishede :) )

Light beige 275....

For several years ,Mr.M.Berg,Copenhagen, has been in search of an oval model vw. The car had to be something special, and Michael didn't count on finding it here in DK....But suddenly this gem came up for sale on the internet. There IT was !!!!! This june 54,totally "unscrewed" oval,had been hidin' in the back of a dealership for the last 25 years. The car is now getting the "berg" treatment : 1776 IDA engine,gasburners ( no repro !! ),correct taillights,etc.etc.....This is going to be one VERY nice looker !! :)
