Der Autobahn Scrapers


« Reply #11 on: March 07, 2009, 23:03:07 pm »

[blush] Wow, err, mmmh, yeah [\blush]

Most influential club in Europe I don't know... but somehow I hope we do, because there are some very motivated people in the club that put a lot of effort to 'promote' this scene.

Also, I think the reason why the club is so tight (and some will say selective) is that we're first and foremost a bunch of friends. The cars follow naturally.

So, what do you guys wanna know?

I'll give you my favourite top 3 cars in the club 
- Xavier's sepia 67 on centerlines (the archetype of cal-look)
- Philippe's green oval (went 12.6 w/o nitrous, we'll see this year)
- Roland's Jeans bug Grin



(PS: that's quite a collection of pics Tero, thanks for that!)

I remember my second visit to Spa: it must have been in 2001 when I arrived in my freshly rebuild oval (I was given the "bible" about one year before from some guys of a german club called DFL or omething like that... Cheesy . The car can be seen in the background of one of the pics, parked next to Manuel Brügger´s (Luftkraft) stunning grey single cab). I was so overwhelmed when I drove to the plateau where all those beautiful cal lookers were parked for show and shine. Right in the middle was a huge tent with lots of cal lookers parked around it. It was the DAS club booth and I was overwhelmed by the quality of the cars. The one car that was my favorite back then was Mike´s blue oval with gasburners and a Berg 5-speed if I remember correctly.
On the long trip home to Wolfsburg we talked for hours about what we had seen as we had never seen so many cool european cal lookers in one place before.
Well done, DAS!

What is a little less known fact is that while they have world class Cal-Lookers in the DAS club, they also have world class potato fries. Give them a try if you have the chance!  Grin
