Yet another danish swapmeet was held this past week end.
Luise, Jens and I went from my house at 7.30am to be sure to hit it when the gates opened. Normally there isn´t much to be found on these swapmeets anymore, you just go anyway with the hope of finding the old Hebmüller decklid standing in a corner for 10euro........
Never the less I got myself some pretty good deals.
One original undented hub cap, a early round 30hp regulator and split 25hp D regulator, a 52mm Motometer steering mount gauge holder, 2 black 1 red all nos foglight protectors ( I´ve wanted something to protect my Hella foglights on the long trips for a while)
And what I consider the best buy of the day, a "Auerhahn" Wirbulator, that appears to be nos, even though it wasn´t in the box.

It has have been awfull quiet here for while, but it doesn´t mean nothing have happend.
Some new options have been added to my oval.
First I found a radio that I've only seen twice before, It´s a 1953 Philips radio. I really like this plain look with only 2 buttons and the big scale with all the german cities written on it, and that the colour of scale house matches the original buttons on the dash, but enough of the radio oh did I forget to mention I even found another so that I now have two of them? :-)
Another thing that i found on thesamba one late night was the original Motometer fuel sender for rally package, I´ve been running a VDO unit for several years, and I know most people wont notice, but I know I will sleep better at night knowing that I now have all the correct senders on this set.
If anyone out there knows how to restore such a sender drop me a email, as this one unfurnatly no longer is precisely as it used to be.
The last thing I bought when we were in Norway at the SCC: some yellow 6volt bulbs for my headlights, it sure took the last breath of light out of my headlights, but I think it looks cool as F....

Even tough the driving season has just ended, the swapmeet season has just started.
Sunday morning we were 4 guys heading for the other end of the country at 5am to go and see if there should be anything usefull between all the junk, and ideed there were!
I found a set of points for the 010, a split D regulator, 2 original jack mounts with almost none rust, 2 clip on Albert mirrors, and a set of Hüls seat recliners.
Jens found a NOS 80mm tach that will be put on his oval soon, and a NOS green runningboard rubber for the drivers side, so now he only needs to locate the right side.
Now we only have to wait another 2 weeks for the next swapmeet.

Guess most of you regular readers of this blog must have giving up by now because of the lack of posts, but if there should be any of you left?! I´m still here I have just been busy with other things but now it´s time for some updates!
At first here is a couple of pictures of my own 54 and Jens´ 54 ovals that I took one of the summer nights this year.
By now both cars have driven for the last time this year, I guess they could need the break, as I have covered 8100km in mine this year, and Jens 5500km in his, so I guess you guys can see there is no trailer queens here!
