As the nights begin to draw in and the weather has turned autumnal, many VW folk around the UK have started tucking their pride and joy away in the garage to avoid the salty roads and, frankly quite dangerous, winter driving conditions that lie ahead. Of course, the hardcore will continue to run their VWs year round but, much as I’m proud to have used the Trekker as my daily driver since March, I think I’ll be parking it up some time in October, weather pending. We’ve had a blast in it this year, but the reality of living with no heaters whatsoever, only a rudimentary hood and flimsy plastic side screens throughout the winter months isn’t particularly appealing. And besides, I’m already bailing out puddles on a semi-regular basis, hence…

Clockin’ off Beetles built between 1952 and ’57 had a smart speaker grille in the centre of the dashboard and a popular fi the time was to replace this with one with a clock mounted in .

the second coming

If you’re a fan of fast Type 2s, Alex ‘Jesus’ Leiserach’s latest project, a tube-framed ’68 Single Cab pick-up, is going to be right up your alley. Alex is no stranger to modified Bay Windows but this, his latest creation, is a very different beast to his previous ones. Starting with a decent Bay Window body, Alex had Andy Robinson Race Cars create the full tube chassis, which features double wishbone suspension all round. The truck now runs a four-speed, sequential, Mendeola gearbox and an air-cooled, 2931cc Pauter Big Block motor. A FuelTech ECU controls the injection system, while a Precision Turbo & Engine 6466 turbocharger ensures there’s plenty of boost on tap. Oh, and it runs on methanol, too. The incredible truck has been five years in the making, and the aim…
