The lowrider trend is rarely seen in the Volkswagen scene. Yet Carl Joscelyne decided to apply the colourful treatment to his latest Vee Dub. This is one unique VW 412
that really grabbed our attention as soon as we saw it.

The Old Speed trend, a great match to the car’s patina. Filled with rare period accessories and engine components, which led to the creation of a memorable rally racer.
DKK ‘67 Cal Looker
This furious 200-horse ’67 sedan, rides in Fullerton (Orange County, California), which is considered by many as the epicentre of the California Look to this day.
Let’s have a closer look at this electric sunroof-optioned Type 34. A car well-known within the European Volkswagen scene built by the RadikalBugz from Belgium.
Samba with 911 power
When the ultimate goal is to bring out the best of two worlds, style and power, this 1958 Samba is the triumphant result! And, just in case you were wondering about the “typical Samba” folding sunroof and roof windows... just read the article.

A weekend of Old Speed racing on the narrow, slippery roads of the Ardennes hills, with their tight turns and sinuous tarmac trails. A great gathering of Old Speed VWs and Porsches with their Gentlemen Drivers.
Visitors love the concept of these gatherings solely dedicated to air-cooled versions, up to the last 993 model produced in 1998. “Luft” is truly a one of a kind Porsche meet in the world. Let’s see what awesomeness this day has to offer.
The Deeky Tiki Party

The event evolved from a small VW gathering in a skatepark carpark into the huge event of festival proportions it is today. In the 16 years it’s been running, it’s gone from roughly 100 to over 6,000 visitors!
Started during lockdown, and now it’s already the 3rd edition of the RadikalBugz Aircooled Rumble Show in Cuesmes, Belgium. We got in our car to check it out once again.
Int. Vintage Meeting Morat / Murten
The Swiss Vintage Meeting took place for the third time in August this year. The historic village is situated on the shores of Lake Murten. A truly beautiful location for Vintage VWs to come together.
