THE PRÄSI PICK UP

..FROM BEST TO WORST!!!

It was last week tuesday when THE PREZ showed up to finally get the hornbutton and TÜV for his pick up! The button came out of the hands of a licenced junk dealer!

But cash alone wouldn´t have sold the rare piece! Sex sells! The Prez had to throw a little strip show in!

After the deal he decided to rest next to my project racer and give the work shop manager!

As I told you earlier it was also TÜV day at the Bug Box! We made a cruise down to the TÜV station! It was like it always is: "JUST A REGULAR DAY AT THE TÜV"!

The Austrians were first! This 67 Westi got it all! Bug Box narrowed beam with our special link pin disc brake dropped spindles, Bug Box IRS kit and some fancy genuine Porsche rims! Aftre getting the german TÜV certificate it is sometimes possible to get the car through austrian inspections!

Second in the row was Lado and Antonias supercool og paint SAMBA ! It  finally got a Bug Box adjustable beam , CSP 14" disc brake and a Bug Box IRS rear end! Next would be more power in my opinion! :-)

The Prez put his very own cookie TÜV sticker on to make it legal the OLD SCHOOL POLICE way!

Before the final candidate that day, the cars lined up behind the TÜV building!

Looks like any other day to me!

Last but not least the pick up had to go on the lift! It got the 2276 engine put in the papers!

The biggest surprise was the arts nest that Udo found in the heater tube!

That day everybody was happy and confident and got back home in one piece!
A couple days later the Prez decided to test drive the now street legal single cab to adjust the carbs and ignition as suddnly the engine caught fire due to a overfloating carb!

The Prez didn´t loose his sence of humor though but was pissed that the fire departement needed 20 minutes to arrive! Sitting on the guard rail, smoking a cigarrette and watching your car burn is nothing you want to experience!

Drive it like it is and restore it later! Good luck Prez!
