california dreamin' (part 2)

Hey guys, the journey continues... We're currently staying at the Capri Motel in San Francisco, a cool old motor lodge from the 1950s. But it's already our last night here as we're gonna head south tomorrow, checking out Santa Cruz before driving down Big Sur. Today we visited Roy Brizio in South San Francisco, we're we stumbled across these two beautiful 1932 coupes...

Here's a pic from our visit at the Petersen Museum in LA, a few days ago, the AMBR winner from 1950, if I remember correctly

One of my lifetime dreams is to explore the roots of hot rodding. And as my girlfriend and I wanted to spend some holidays together, we decided to combine these two things. So, here we are in Southern California. During these days, I'll try to keep you updated with some cool stuff we come across (and there's load of 'em...) like the above picture from our shop tour at Hollywood Hot Rods. Of course, I took some pics that I'll show you after our return back home. So, stay tuned for some more teaser pics in the next couple of weeks. Oh by the way, see you at the Grand National Roadster Show...


flashback 2008 (2/2)

Alright, here we go with part 2 of the LOWTECH end of year review... Let's have a look at the latest edition of Switzerland's biggest pre-60 car and bike event, the Hangar Rockin' 2008, on a sunny weekend in the beginning of July...

A few weeks later, we had a lot of fun at the Oldstyle Weekend in Sihlbrugg, close to Zurich.

During the summer holidays there wasn't much going on, until the end of August, when two events were held at the same weekend. One of them was the Hot Rod and Art Show in Weil am Rhein, just across the swiss border...

What a nice summer evening

The other show on the same weekend was the Customzone in Winterthur...

On the first weekend of September, we headed to the Headbanging at a former russian military airbase in Finsterwalde, right in the middle of eastern Germany. What a great event...

Some nice but smaller events put a crowning end to this perfect summer of 2008. Just like the US car meet in Lupfig...

...and the Skates, Monsters, Skulls & One Shot vernissage at Custom Parts & Wear.
