Hi from Holland!

Post by Uncle S » 9th November 2012 - 9:47pm

Hello, I'd like to introduce ourselves (and our aircooled cars offcourse).
After this introduction, I'll search through our foto's of our 412, and post some in a project thread.
It will be a hell of a job, since we have shot hundreds of photo's off our restoration.


But first ourselves and our rides:
My name is Sander, and I'm married (In Maurice ;) ) to Liset
We have 2 kids, and a German Sheppard.
We live in Soest, in the centre off the Netherlands.
I'm sure you will get to see us at one of the pictures of the 412 resto.

My wife's ride:
1976 1200 model,
Porsche brakes and 17" wheels
1915cc type 1
Photo @ eau Rouge, Spa Francourchamps:

And my bug, it's a 1641cc powered mex, also Porsche brakes and 15" wheels, here in action @ EBI slalom:

In 2009 we went to Belgium, to look for a 1973 412LS variant. She was in really bad shape :crybaby: , but the interior looked nice... :?
So, there went back home, with a HUGE Volkswagen on our trailer (we were used to the kafers, so this was e real big-one!!)

And this is where our battle began... :ninja: ;)
