Black Gold in the house!

For proper Old Speed and the absolute correct look, there is absolutely only one choice for tyres - black gold!

Dunlop Racing tyres give high value for high money, both in looks and performance. This recently arrived set is going on to a friends' Zwitter race car.... We will be testing them out on a couple of our ongoing projects as they pass through our hands. We are in love!

New oldspeed project in the Screwdrivers' garage..

Screwdrivers' has secured a real rarity for this season... The "HPD Special" was handbuilt in Sweden back in 1958 and has gone through an extensive 2500-hour restoration job. The builder had an amazing combination of skills, donor-parts and a surprisingly good eye for design. Based on a shortened Beetle chassis from 1949, the the car is very much inspired by the notorious Porsche 356 Carrera GTL Abarth. It is presently going through a little update and getting ready for SCC 2010...and eventually the BC2011 Oldspeed Challenge. Stay tuned for more.

Spring cleaning...

The Screwdriver-barn is "too full" something has gotta go. 1938 Steyr Type 55 restoration project FOR SALE.

The Steyr Type 55 is in many ways the granfather of the Beetle. The project was initiated by Ferdinand Porsche when he worked for Steyr 1929-1931, and the car came out in 1934. Unbelievable "stromlinie"-design, yet a project not for the faint-hearted.
