first aid...

Last Friday my friend Rui showed up in his fresh restored beetle convertible. A really nice example with a tasty light gray paint job, a red/black interior and a healthy drop job:

He had some issues with a wobbly front end which we tried to fix.

... some issues could be solved, but there is something REALLY wrong inside the front beam, so it has to be dismanteled once more!

Oldtimertreffen Burscheid Hilgen

Today I drove to the Classic Car Meeting In Burscheid Hilgen, which takes place every Sunday.
There were a lot of cars, but here are only some very special / rare examples:
Citroen DS Coupé "Le Dandy" with a massive B-pillar (between 1960 and 1968; 49 known cars)

BMW Isetta 600
(note the custom banded steel wheels)

a british Ford Capri (LHD!)

... and a rare Ford 20m TS V6  convertible:

about 150 of them were made by the Cologne based coach build company: Karl Deutsch
I dig the red on red interior
