DAS

DAS colors were flying high this weekend with some fierce dragracing action on the airstrip near stratford upon avon.

cloudy at first sight, after a rainy saturday, the sun came peeking trough the clouds a bit later and looked onto some very fast times of streetcars, gassers, slingshots etc etc ... i even saw a slingshot performing a 7.90 sec on the 1/4m !!!

1915CC by steve's VW shop

IMG_3191

IMG_3203

The engine for the niagara blue bus is done now, i picked it up, lovely installed in the bus yesterday evening, and enjoyed every moment of the cruize home with the new 1915CC engine ... it has alot of torque, and especially the original aspect really keeps me rambling on and on ... original carb, original exhaust, all tuned on rolling road dyno at www.stevesvwshop.beBe sure to call steve if you're into an engine project. He will guide you trough the process, and will assemble what ticks your box, a full on dragracing engine, or in my case, a torque pregnant engine with original looks.

f1... Monaco... you said expensive ?

IMGP8216

IMGP8208

I was invited to a friend's appartment to watch the Formula 1 GP of monaco this weekend ... it was a great weekend ! not only we saw the high tech cars of the current F1 teams, but we also saw alot ... and i mean alot ... of high priced cars. it just looks as if everybody in Monaco drives a 100.000+++ EUR car ... Ferrari and Bentley being the most popular. and what about Mercedes SLS, SLR's, spider and coupé ... they do drive in Monaco ! oh yeah, forget about that porsche 911. no one wants to be seen in it ... boring ! :-)

engine brothers

club me

the 2195 engine will have a 1914 brother sitting next to him ... it might be in a bus, but a healthy 90 horsepower project seems adequate enough for a cruizing bus.
