New year, new cars

Posted in Bilar/Cars, Fynd/Finds, Resor/Trips on januari 2, 2015 by 50split

What is better than start the new year with pickin’ another Volkswagen Bus?!

But, first a cup of black coffee.
Cup is from our norwegean friends! Check their page, http://www.outlavws.blogspot.com

This day we will have a 550km trip, just over the day, to pick a bus, that has been sitting in the barn for quite some time.

This day will be a live blog day, so you guys can follow the pick during the day, wile you are sitting behind your work-desk, or just sitting in the sofa at home still thinking about new year! 🙂

New toys!

Posted in Allmänt/ General, Fynd/Finds, Old Speed on augusti 31, 2014 by 50split

Have not show´n this nice piece yet.

Its a Fageol Pepco supercharger that I traded from the UK this summer. It is a project, but the most of the parts were there!
Pepcos are reproduced by Speedwell USA (http://speedwellusa.com/) but this supercharger is the real deal, an old one, but with some missing parts that are reproduced through Ray at Speedwell USA.  I will run this supercharger on the zwitter, and hopefully I wiill be able to run it next weekend at a car-show in my town. If not, then I hope for testing it the next weekend, when we have the annual vw meeting in my town (dasvw.se)

First race will be at the Bergrennen  #10 in Norway, 27/9!  (http://gmundbrokerage.blogspot.se/)

I have had some help with the supercharger, both laser-cut an aluminum plate for the back of the supercharger, and machined it down, by another friend, so it would fit the charger-body.  Hopefully this will run smooth and powerful up the hill!

SCC 2014, the trip

Posted in Dagens bild/ Picture of the day, Fynd/Finds, Old Speed, Resor/Trips, skrot/junk, Träffar/Meetings on augusti 22, 2014 by 50split

This is the first part of the trip to SCC at Gardermoen. This will show pictures from the way towards Norway. The first stop were at Patrik in Ö-vik, sorry, no pictures from the stop this time…
Then a stop at Enviken to have a chat with Rustas, and meet Demian and Gustaf, who were there for work.

Then a quick stop at Demians house (barn) to see whats new. Then to Ludvika, to meet Fez and Paul, who were staying at Pauls kind friend who were happy to give us food, and a nice stay over the night! Thanks!!  Really a nice nice place he had! Fez started planing about what he would do if he was the owner of the place….. One day, maybe!!?!!

Next day was the junkyard day. BR Ivanssons junkyard in Båstnäs, Töcksfors. I asked if anyone else from boxerville.se would go there, and, two more from the Forum were there, and Paul and Fez. 3 vw cars, and one Volvo with vw enthusiasts in….

My first time there, but not the last!! What a place! Supercool!!! All old cars, and all things…
Sadly whole day were rainy, so, we did´nt stay that long….

Then towards Norway, and more heavy rain! Sick!

Now the pictures, that will speak for themselves.

Split in woods

Posted in Fynd/Finds, skrot/junk on juni 17, 2014 by 50split

This is a odd story, but true!

Me and a friend were out searching for junk last autumn, and we found a beaten split pan, sittin in the woods, were there´s been a junkyard decades ago. Later on that trip we stopped at a barn, were my friend knew there had been a beetle some winters ago.

We checked in that barn, but, no car…. The sun started to fall, and we were heading home, when I turn back from the barn to our car, I see something lighted up in the woods, bu the low standing sun…

 

A split body!!! WTF! Find a beaten  pan, and a beaten shell, split era, the same day! weird!

What happen next is quite odd to. Got a PM from an old friend, saying he bought the shell…. How is that possible….. He´found out about that car same time era as I did…. He knew the owners and got the deal done! Congratz!! Hope it will get a new life some day!

My new barndoor – tractor

Posted in Allmänt/ General, Barndoor 1951, Dagens bild/ Picture of the day, Fynd/Finds, skrot/junk on juni 2, 2014 by 50split

The latest toy in my collection is this barndoor chassis from ca 1951. This showed up at swedish forum, Boxerville. It was put up by a ”new guy” and did not say much, he´d find it in a barn ”as is” and sold it ”as is” to best offer. My ”Alice”  barndoor misses all what would be chassis, and this would be grate as donor to Alice. This one is build as a ”epatraktor” = tractor made by cars or trucks back in the days, around the second world war, and the time after that. The epa is a shorted car, often w-o cabin area.   I don´t think this was done as a epatraktor, due to the linkage to the shifter was not ready to use, and the ”shifterpipe” was broke. So, I needed to swap that part in the gearbox nose, and put in a engine. The electrical system was og BD, so I needed to change that to a new, safe wires. The gasoline tank was just an old 5 liter can, and, old and rusty, so for safety I swaped that too. Then it was time for a test drive. Me and my father towed it, and, yes, it started!! Nice times! This weekend is a ”show n shine” for old things, like mopeds, cars, and tractors, so I will bring it to that show.

 

Now some pictures:

Hej alla Bloggläsare, och framförallt ni svenska följare.

 

Jag ska ställa ut zwittern på wolksworld och jagar pengar som kan täcka upp båt-transporten till UK och tillbaka.

Detta är ingen billig historia, men jag har lyckats jaga fram 800 av de 1400 Euro som behövs.

Dock är min förhoppning att täcka kostnaderna för båttransporten via sponsorer, det kommer ändå bli en kännbar utställning ekonomiskt, med tanke på min egen resa, resor at hämta upp å lämna zwittern, och alla övriga utgifter som boende osv….

Bloggen är en kul grej som jag inte tjänar en krona på, utan snarare har utgifter på, så, har du en firma som kan tänkas lägga en slant, eller känner du som privatperson att du har en hundring över, dunka gärna in dom i projekt ”norrlänning med ball kärra i UK 2014”

Skicka ett mail till: dl_fbom @ hotmail.com så skickas kontouppgifter och dylikt över enkelt där!

 

Tack på förhand till er som vill hjälpa mig komma till Volksworld Show 2014.

 

Tanken är att få in namn/nickname/firmanamn av er som hjälper mig, så jag kan tacka er på mitt sätt!

PLEASE help
