Mid seventies.
The car was painted orange primer first time I saw it in Malmö Sweden 1975.
It was built by the three man team from Hot VW pictures and mostly inspired by Inch Pincher.

It then in turn inspired me and my partner to build a VW dragster few years later.
The car changed owner early eighties to Hazze Lindholm. After Hazzes ownership, I bought the car and had it for some years with different engines. I sold it to Germany after Mats Herrlander borrowed the car and he ran it to a win in Giebelstadt race, in again Germany.
One or more owners in between and today Udo is successful owner/racer of this fantastic European VW history.

In Germany we had not much Cal-Look in the earlier days , but Racing  Cheesy . this is a picture from Hockenheim where a dragrace called "Käferblasen" started in the 70's . The event continued at Erlensee and Giebelstad on american millitary airfields  Cheesy. It stopped in 92 when they closed Giebelstadt for racing  Sad . It was a large event of racers and spectators each year
I tried to continue with this event somewhere but in Germany nobody has interest .

Udo, you`re hijacking you're own car's thread... Roll Eyes

I have been at the last races in Giebelstadt. For me it was the first time I got in touch with Drag Racing. I still have the ticket for the last one:



On the Hockenheim picture you can see a young Ronald Juetting (middle front), today he's racing a VW-Paradise turbocharged mid engined "New Beetle" Speedster, in front right there's Jerry Lackey and his "All American Bug". Jerry is something like the german Don Garlits...

And regarding getting the ST MORITZ FASHION paint design back on your car: DO IT!

Saludos,
Ole

Wow, that sounded wicked Udo!! So he was in this paint when you bought it?
Did you replace the tube axle or was it already done when you got it?
I just just try to imagine how it would look in the St Moritz fashion paint.... breathtaking!!
We should get Frallan, Herrlander, Eric Lindgren, Göran Nilsson and Leif Lövendahl in the same room and have them point out what colors to use.

I suggest you bring your house of colors paint swatches up to the JPM Dynoday this fall!! I know Frallan and Herrlander usually attends...
I'll make the text for the doors for you if you do!

I have the original Start&Speed article with good color pictures but also 99.98% clear memory which tones the design had.
Pirk the painter is if I am not totally wrong, is still around in Sweden. One of the few super guys that has not moved to Hot Rodder heavens in South LA.
Not that I think he would paint but maybe he could give some free advice?

Furthermore I could ask nicely to my drag race partner Bengt Lindberg if he has original slides form the late 70s. He took a lot of them at the time.
Now, that is only if this becomes a "restore original paint" project.
One problem exists....the car was not top chopped with that paint.

May be we can all meet at SCC this year and talk about it  Smiley . If there are any infos about the colour it would be nice .

Did you replace the tube axle or was it already done when you got it?
Jon , i did it because it is more safe with the original .

I verify. The tube axle was "criminal" in a view point from todays standard.
Not that it could not work but the way it was done, it was so flimsy that it surprising nothing serious happened.

First time out for me I almost flipped the car.
That was not fault of the front end but rather toe out.....still I would not lift. In some way I sorted it out going from side to side but for sure it could have been an end to that car.

I have some other garage pictures from my ownership time. I will see what more I can dig out.
I will also post the Start & Speed article with color pictures. I know it has been done somewhere else to but so what.

Gives a hint of the colors.

Mate Herrlander to the left popping in his 2333 in to my car and dyno rolling it.

Me running it with my 911 OHC cam engine out of the Pank dragster.


I will scan some more stuff and post it too.
