Paprika Time!

Proof-of-concept for the original L452 Paprika Rot colour of my 'Vert. Naturally it looks different in the photo than it did in real, the brown/orange shade disappeared, also the light makes it look different. Exciting times..

Pomona Swap Meet 13.1.2008

Some shots from Pomona Swap Meet my buddy Sebastian Vuorisalo took during his holiday in California.

I wonder whether I got Pick Nick photos by accident ;)

Air-Cooled Stuff

I think that this is the very same lowlight I drooled over in Fremont Street Show few months ago.

Well, who else you meet accidentally in car event..

Volksworld Show '07

Now that this year's show season is approaching, here is a nice movie of last year's Volksworld Show from youtube.

"if you didn't built it, don't cruise it"

Damn, I should get one of these just out of self-irony :)

Found also a picture of this cool sticker among my event photos from last season.

Link: Ratataksi

Link to Mika Särkelä's Race-Taxi project, inspired no doubt by the Porsche-powered Split Screen Bus that became famous in Youtube. Cool project but being a modern Volkswagen it is not exactly my cup of tea.

I nearly spilled my morning coffee when noticed the recycling campaign on the Finnish milk cartons, hence the photo of the milk carton not the other milk carton shaped design :)

Link: Wheeler-Dealer's Photos

Link to Wheeler-Dealer's blog and pictures. The Stone, Woods & Cook Willys Coupe pictured here in the NHRA Motorsport Museum is the other of my all-time favourite Gassers ever along with the Mooneyham&Sharp '34 Ford Coupe.

Awesome '35 from the SEMA Show. Petersen Museum, NHRA Museum, Hot VWs Drag Day, SEMA Show etc seems like pretty good trip based on that picture blog.

Similar colour from '02-'03 VW Pissrat's colour chart was in my plans of my Cabriolet when the restoration started, but not anymore.

Link: Norisring Historie

Excellent resource with loads of period photos from various sportscar races held in Norisring 1947-75; http://www.norisringhistorie.de/. I got biggest kicks out of Porsche 908s and 917s of Finnish AAW Racing team driven by Leo Kinnunen, Hans Laine and Lasse Sirviö.
