kustom kulture forever 201305/06/2013

A little bit further than the old KKF festival terrain was this old coal mine. The new location for the KKF festival 2013.
We went there already on thursday so we already could meet some friends of us and have a couple of bears and german sausages from the bbq. Friday and saterday people came rolling in to have a nice and good weekend to look and listen to cars, bikes, tattoos, burn-outs, a motordome, pinstripers, bands, dj’s etc etc... and than leave back home on sunday with a hangover.

the old coalmine

you can’t really get any lower than this.

hotrod surf at FAST 201129/05/2013

Our fellow Lucky Lenn and F.A.S.T (Free Architecture Surf Terrain) organise the Hotrod & Surf event.
A visit to our backyard and see the sea is always nice. And in combination with a nice small event which is worth to visit we went to Scheveningen (The Netherlands).

Note: 13 and 14 juli 2013 there will be another HotRod and Surf event at F.A.S.T. sssso so come over to Scheveningen this year!

Building the new clubhouse29/05/2013

The Scrapers are living and working through out The Netherlands and Belgium. Some work at home, some have their own garage and others share a garage. In one of the shared garages we found some space left over. Due to the fact that another car was finished and ready for the roads.

What to do with the space? Well... we had a little kitchen where sat in the wintertime. But that one was to smalle and to cold. We couldn’t have people to come over while you are more than welcome. So why not make a new bar/clubhouse!


opening the new clubhouse januari 201229/05/2013

So we build a new clubhouse in 3 months. And now what? Like we always do... PARTY!!!

Scrapers the last couple of years28/05/2013

In the last 13 years we’ve been to many places, events, meeting, ride-outs etc etc. But we didn’t really posted any pics of all the things we did.
Due to the fact we didn’t had a website and/or weblog or didn’t updated them.

Like old cars websites need some maintenance as well. The upcomming couple of days/weeks i will post pics you’ve missed out the last couple of years. Things like the scrapers reability runs, hot rod surf, rosmalen, re-opening of our clubhouse, and road verges we visited....

New taillights in the make.29/12/2012

Vins and Dennis have worked on new taillights for Vins his Pick Up.

They turned a piece of aluminum on the lathe to the correct size to fit the lenses in there, all they need to do is fit some bulbs in and install the new taillights!

It will be a nice improvement on the back of the "Blue Crush"

Louman Automotive museum06/10/2012

On 6 October we had a club meeting and we went to the Louman Automotive Museum. To be honest, we've done a few museums, but this one has something special, almost every item is in a separate room and it was just wonderful to visit. The museum was built 3 years ago and owns a great collection of one of the first carriages untill the first cars rolled out of the factories, but also a lot of art work around the automotive scene.. worth a visit!

Horror coach? build in Portugal 1779, could be count Dracul's if you ask us.

 

Is this a real apehanger?

Yeah right.. forget about Captain Zeppos, this thing rules!
