a good day 'in the shed'

managed to get this 2332cc shortblock assembled today (after many headaches!), which we hope will be running before the uk drag day in a couple of weeks time (it's a lot of hope and a little luck!). did the maths, worked out the necessary deck etc. so now just waiting for some seals and spacers to arrive and it can become a longblock at long last... more progress very soon (i hope!)

UVW reader, Steve Taylor sent us this pic of his Speedster replica... very tasty, we're sure you'll agree!

slammed, ratty 356...

...this isn't a photoshop creation, it's for real... and oh-so-cool, non?!

DKW bus

are you looking for a camper with a difference?? how about this über-rare DKW-based conversion?! Awesome!!

shopping for a t4 california..

today we went t4 california shopping for a friend and found this cool, silver metallic, turbo-diesel camper, which was already UK-registered. The t4 california (westfalia-built camper) was only ever available in LHD format on the European market, so UK-registered vans are mostly private imports, and are few and far between... This van was imported (from Germany) to the UK around 3 years ago and has since been repainted, lowered and fitted with some cool Audi-sourced rims. It ticked all the boxes and, being priced well-within budget, it was snapped up right away!
Fans of T4 Cali's can check it out at Big Bang, where it will be parked alongside Ultra VWs own slammed T4 California workhorse!

More Country Buggy action!

How crazy?

Ben Lewis's crazy Country Buggy!

Yes, it really is as crazy as it looks! Slammed on chromed Fuchs, with a 1720cc Porsche 912 motor pushing it around. It puts a smile on everyone's face!
