Red face My 1979 VW Passat B1 in Australia

Hi there,

This is my car, his name is Frank:
















I got him in December 2008, looking a bit worse for wear:




He's undergone a lot of work since then. The top photos were taken last month at our annual VW club show. It took a lot of coordination to get so many B1s together, it was the first time in years

I also have a website for B1s, which has a million photos about the restoration of my car. And I am looking for more B1s for a B1 calendar. I have had one printed for 2013 that features B1s around the world. Now I am searching for more cars for the 2014 edition. If you're interested, the details are on my website

Yeah the Kamei Golf is our race car













We just had our annual big VW show, and had three B1s come to it, which was cool. The photos I posted earlier were from last year's show, we had a record breaking 7 B1s attend then

I have a B1 website for B1 owners and fans , if you're interested. Just finished creating and having a new B1 wall calendar printed, and now I'm on the hunt for more B1s for the next calendar in 2015.

Please drop by sometime, everyone's welcome!
