Abandoned Drag Strips...

Besides "all" the VW/Porsche-forums, we often find ourselves comfortable over at the HAMB on the Jalopy Journal-pages. Hot Rods and Cal Lookers have a lot in common - and one thing is the love affair with dragstrips - the "battlefields".

We just loved this thread over at the HAMB - "Lost Drag Strips" - all 11 pages of it. Check it out by clicking on the bottom picture.

Due to lack of information on the topic; birth control, the SCREWDRIVERS crew need to build cars for the little ones as well....

A little sneak-peak-pre-view on one lucky stubby SCREWDRIVERS ride:

'53 Porsche 356 barn find...

It just never stops to amaze us.... the amount of unrestored classic cars that still exist. Some very few still with the original owner, or their family and yet more in the hands of eraly day collectors that picked them up while they were cheap and plentyful.

This time it is a '53 Porsche Convertible... In many ways the ultimate 356 (all Pre-'52s aside, of course) in our opinion; It has a body that allows for removing the bumpers, it has got the old dash and windscreen, and it has got a symmetrical up-front lighting arrangement. A one-year only feature - and since the cabrio was the lightest, most "raciest" car ...this sample is dying to get some vintage racing treatment.

Check out the EBAY-auction - Item number: 220780146532...and bid before it is too late.

The Think Tank

This weekend hosted the annual "mother of all swap meets" here in Norway - the "Ekeberg Market". Hundreds of sellers, thousands of buyers - this is a really nice event with a history since the 60ies and arranged by the veteran car club of Norway.

During recent years, we find more friends and faces than nuts and bolts...but there is always something.... Last year our big find was the Italmeccanica supercharger, which is bound for our '51 356 - check it out here:

This year, a wonderful airplane belly-tank got us thinking..... A pair of Okrasa-heads hangin' out the sides of it....a "non-shock-tower" front beam off a Kubel up front....wouldn't it be sweet? But this year we left it at that - just think-tanking. Some lucky buyer might have picked it up, although he would have to have been slimmer than us in order to fit in it.
