Is usually a good way to start when you want to search for cool stuff. But sometimes the best hiding place is right in plain sight. As was the case with this cool 1950s Ljungmans Star 76 fuel pump. Sitting in front of a farm right next to a heavily trafficked road we must have passed it a zillion times over the years. By pure coincidence we spotted it this weekend, and naturally we had to stop by and ask if it was for sale. Surprised by our question, the farmer said he thought about tearing it down for scrap within the next few days..
Well, obviously it came home with us on the trailer.
So keep your eyes open, cool old stuff is still out there.
Oh, and always bring a trailer ;-)

This weekend we attended the 10th anniversary edition of JPMs annual dyno day.
Like every year it is a fun filled event with a great dinner/party on the saturday night to top it of.
The absolute highlight was seeing our friend Anders Widgren's mouse motor being run on the dyno.
Built by Anders himself the 1776cc motor feutures heavily modified VW 043 heads by our man Johannes Persson. Raptor camshaft, lightweight JE pistons, Italian IDAs and a 030 distributor..
No MSD gadgets, no modern wizardry, just good old knowledge and attention to detail.
205hp @ 7250rpm
Hats of Anders, the Screwdrivers salute you!
Anders is a member of the Oslo based Stormtroopers club. A great bunch of guys that are heavily into old school cal look.

This is something you do not see every day... a 3-owners-from-new, unmolested and correct 1946 Beetle... At the price of 40K USD before bargaining...this is by far the best deal we have seen in a long time...
Bananabumpers and big bakelite knobs....gotta love it!
Check it out:

When all of a sudden this little fella came
along we were surprised by the very
familiar sounding engine noise..
Naturally we had to investigate, and what do you
A sweet little 30hp VW industrial engine.
We even got the operator to take us along for a little
rail inspection trip :-)
Center mounted hydraulic jack makes it
possible to lift and turn the little train if needed.
This little thing was COOL!
