Winter-Rally Kalldrage 2014

The first picture is from last weekend, when me and Rebecka went out to the garage and picked up the zwitter.

It had no power in the battery, so we decided to pull it. In with 2:nd gear, and up with the clutch. What happens when U have summer tires, and try to do that on the ice and snow covered asphalt in the wintertime…. You guessed right, the wheels slides….


Switch to winter tires and try again, but it did not want to start…. Tried with starting gas, but, no…. WTF…. then I remember I had turned of the fuel tap. Then it needed 5 meters to start! Yee



Some electrical issues, no right rear light, no horn, no headlights…

”ground problems”

This Friday evening we went to Umeå, a 135 km trip. Not that much of heat….but some defrost at the driver side on the front window…

We have possibility to put the car in a garage, the night before the race at my sisters place.

I had some small fix to do, and, then we put on real heat, so the snow would melt down during the night.

Sadly i had no picture of the thermometer, showing +10 in the morning time.

First start 09.30 and we had to be there one hour before, for a information, morning coffee, and ”drivers-meeting”


Now the picture bomb from the rally

The zwitter was at least top 5, theoldest car.

This weekend we´re going to Umeå, to participate in the veteran rally called Kalldrage.

It use to be a nice rally, with speed races,  ice track, rally tracks and so on.

But, also, as in most vintage rallys there´s like 30 hard questions, with, old snowmobiles, mopeds, motorcycles, car parts, cats, and famous peoples.


I have a own challenge, not the same car every year, and every 2:nd year go aircooled!

Alice Babs, the first owner of my bus died today, 90 years old.


She, and my friends father, who was a vw mechanic in the 50´s, @ vw service station


I´m still looking for some parts for the front end, but it´s not any hurry. the bus will be on the road 2021, when the car turn´s 70 years old.

Some small steps.

Some coffee, Jonas @ boxerville makes Gravrost coffee,  of course made in an old coffee-mill,  and should be served in an nice cup. The Sechs volt guys gave me this @ SCC Flugplatz Schmutz Rennen 2013. Thanks!


These ones are made by Fabrication by Franke. Real nice peaces, and very useful!!


I took them apart, and did mount the rear peace first.

Easy to mount, and easy to use.



But, there´s a problem with lovering a bus……

A neat peace of wood, and,  voilà.
