FRIDAY AT LAST!!

Friday at last.. the snow gets deeper and deeper in Norway 45 cm's in my yard now... with more on the way! Is a good thing we have something to do in our garages...! Like painting our Gassers!! Just a couple of months now and we will have to get out the brushes give the cars names! Like these boys... bring out the brushes and get in touch with your creative side! BTW what are they painting?

Norways first looker??

I just received some really cool pictures of what might very well be Norway's first Cal-looker. Øystein Lindahl got hold of some early HotVWs magazines in the early eighties... and he liked what he saw. He told me that you really had to search a little in the magazines to find the 'lookers those days...  hey, you still have too... ;-)

Norways first looker??

Øystein changed the front fenders to 68 and welded up the pumper holes to get that oh-so-cool US look! This one would turn heads even today!

Under the one-year only lid you would have found a tuned 1600. Notice the shorter pipes?

A hot square in the cold...

Kormi lives as he learns... his type 3 is used all year round... on 14" fuchs it seems...

While this car is cool, what you really want to see is inside the barn in front of it...  but I think it's kind of a Friday-secret...hohohoooo!

The "Kobus asks and Norway answers" series.

It gave it's life for a realy early oval 53. The roof replaced the oval roof, making a fake switter. The fake switter now belongs to Anders Letmolie.

The "Kobus asks and Norway answers" series.

"Where's this car today???? judging by the vespa sign in the back it was somewhere in the early 80's in Italy!!!"  Kobus
 
The answer is a s sad one ...  the car lived in Norway up to the eighties. This pictrure is taken in Oslo, hours before the picture above.
