Customzone 2009 meant two days of hot rod and kustom extravaganza... with cool displays of cars from the ACES, Cheaters, Crazy Cruisers, Haters, Los Padres Locos, Draggers... kustom kulture artists like Empire32, Mr. Kool, Al's Tiki... and speaking of Tikis, even a refreshing tiki bar. Big thanks to Manu and Stöffel and all of their helpers who did one hell of a job with putting up an indoor show that Switzerland's never seen before. Click here for more pics.
This is one of the coolest vintage style shots I've seen in a while. Obviously, it's a 1936 three-window coupe in the purest Westergard fashion and it reminds me a lot of the famous Calori coupe, but I'm not sure if it's the same car. It lacks the big front bumper guard while it sports a set of white walls, which Mr. Calori was known to hate.
It ain't x-mas yet, but receiving these photos this morning was like a little gift. I think you like them, too and we should thank Sonja Moser and her photographic talent for these great shots. She took them last weekend when several members of the ACES Car Club went to Finsterwalde to attend the annual Headbanging, the famous 1/8 mile hot rod race in eastern Germany.
A couple of weeks ago, I went to watch the GP Suisse in Berne. It's a memorial held to celebrate the last swiss grand prix in 1954. After that, circuit racing in Switzerland got banned. While I didn't like the whole snobby feel of the event, I definitely enjoyed to see, to hear and to smell a lot of wonderful vintage machinery. Click here to see what I saw.
