Herning swapmeet

Yes it was time for yet another swapmeet.
Jens and hit the trade stands at 6.30 am and we made some pretty good deals.
Jens got a Motometer gauge holder and a Helphos light.
I got a Blaupunkt radio for a oval, split horn grill, suction cup ashtray and a early oval gas tank with the correct sender for the Motometer rally gauge set.
Nothing beats a good swapmeet hunt :-)

It´s almost there

If you are regular reader of this blog you might have wondered what happened with Jens and his 54 ragtop.
This nice ride is coming out of hibernation in a couple of weeks, and it now features some new accessories.
Stay tuned for updates, you won´t be disapointed.

The luggage compartment

My friend Christian recently scored this nice set of original vw suitcases for his 64 ragtop.
Even though Christian doesn´t have that true bluehat feel (notice the Fuchs sparewheel) he is definitely one of the good guys, and a sucker for accessories.
Doesn´t it just look perfect with those suitcases behind the rear seat?!

Gauge bargain

I recently stumpled upon an ad on thesamba with a lot of Motometer gauges.
I bought them all to get some of them for my own collection and the senders.
It´s not often that you find good deals on the web, but this was one of them :-)

Fredericia swapmeet

Last saturday Jens and I was at the Fredericia swapmeet.
There is not much to found on the danish swapmeets anymore, but we didn´t walk away completely empty handed though.
Jens got a original cruiser pedal, I found a WEGU flower vase, a lighted rearview mirror and a complete year of 1959 Gute Fahrt magazines.

New venturies

I just recieved the new venturies for the Express motor with the post the other day.
My friend Andi from DBK Germany was kind enough to machine a stock set of 21,5mm venturies to 23,5mm for me.
The motor has been started but not driven yet because there is still alot of snow and salt on the roads.
And I have made an appointment with the dyno guy in next month, I can´t wait to see how it performes.
