Long way home:
From factory Stuttgart to US. Then back to Germany, Berlin. Then to Frankfurt and finally to Finland.
Ab Werk Stuttgart nach US, dann zurück nach Deutschland, Berlin. Dann nach Frankfurt und schließlich nach Finnland.
Slowly but steadily it comes together. Some progress picturess added.
Welcome to my T1 (Samba) Postbus Project. (23 split window bus year 1961).
To the history:
This vehicle was 18 years for Austrian Post in the Tyrolean mountains move.
The special feature is the special equipment and therefore original restored unique worldwide.
1. Special painting Yellow - Black and postal emblem (Austrian Eagle with horn)
2. Cotton fabric seat covers (Red / black with yellow piping).
3. Siren (was a school bus for the mountain peasant childs on narrow twisty roads in use).
4. Eberspächer gasoline heater (for cold winter days).
5. The small round taillights were replaced by the new oval.
6. 12 V board power supply system for Austria.
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight...wait a minute, let's rephrase that into 3.0CSL There you go much better!
"Voulez-vous (ah-ha) Take it now or leave it (ah-ha) Now is all we get (ah-ha) Nothing promised, no regrets Voulez-vous (ah-ha) Ain't no big decision (ah-ha) You know what to do (ah-ha) La question c'est voulez-vous..."
I think it was/is CS rather than CSL. Lovely nevertheless.
That's correct, it's 3.0CS and the actual owner is Agnetha Fältskog -Yeah the blond one...
Almost forgot to tell the car is currently under restoration by CSL garage in Hungary.
Dragging Jaguar E-type
Drag racing early Jaguar E-type FHC , Nor sure what to make of it really!
My first reaction was naah..this ship has already sailed. then again on a second thought Barret Jackson's Lot #1315, a 1965 samba at Scottsdale 2017 just recently fetched staggering $302,500 If that's where the market is heading, one could feasibly farm out all the work and still be winning
Another blast from the past, a Ponton I purchased when 14. I kept the car for over 20 years until sold it in desparate need for cash...
It was the most comfortable car I've ever had...At least that's how I want to remember it.
Ein weiterer Trip in die Vergangenheit, ein Ponton Ich kaufte bei 14. Ich hielt das Auto für mehr als 20 Jahre, bis es verkauft in verzweifelten Bedarf an Bargeld ... Es war das komfortabelste Auto, das ich je hatte ..
