My oldspeed engine

This winter I am working with a oldspeed engine. I have a 36 HP engine, a "Okrasa-style" camshaft, a machinejob on the heads for more power, two manifolds and two 28 PCI carburettors. I will also add a FRAM oilfilter on it. The machinejob on the engine and parts is done by a very skilled person here in my region. The engine is almost ready, only waiting for the heads. The engine is very fresh with new or NOS parts inside. I can`t wait to drive with it this summer.

The old semaphores from the oval

When I bought the black oval in 1993 it had the original semaphores. My dad fix`d it the easy way - and that was ok for a year. Then I bougt a nice set wich I still have. The old semaphores was sold to Espen/VW54 and late in 2010 I was lucky enough to get they back. They will be restored some day, but just now is it fun to own it again. They belong to this car, and they will be back in action:)

Nice fresh parts for split

Boblehue sandblasted this parts for me. The other cyclonefilters is in nice condition and did not need sandblasting. The manifolds is only sandblasted innside for better float for the gasoline:)


I got this nice roofrack for free, and some hubcaps. The rack is in nice condition, and only need one new part. I don`t need it, but will save it in the barn.

Woffe, our little dog, is not so happy with a kid in the house. He turns his head away, and dont`t like to be hold in the tail.

Tomte Lærdal

Westy bag

My mother-in-law made this little bag my girlfriend. The fabric is from Wolfsburg West and Knut VW-service. She use it from time to time, and like it a lot.

The old Capitan-hood

The old hood is removed from the dark and dusty storage in one forgotten corner in the barn. The hood is damaged during the roof-crash back then. I will take a closer look at it in the new year. The old Capitain made a smile when I tried it on him.

Serving in the workshop

A few days ago, Boblehue and I were talking about the important things in life, in my little workshop. Boblehue brought some cold glasbottle cola, and my girlfriend showd up with some fresh bakery. Could we have done better?
