Wow...

Just got an invitation to participate in the annual X-Treme car show in Helsinki 3-4.10.2009...

http://www.x-treme.fi/tapahtumat/849.dsp
Same in English but shorter.
http://www.x-treme.fi/tapahtumat/index_en.dsp

I said one and a half years ago at the American Car show that it would be the last show for this tiny car...
Too much hassle to drag it all over the country...

Well, my friend with the custom, bagged splitbus, shorty, trailer is going with the trailer too and he said he could fit the Kidvrod into their Van...

Hmm....

I would want something new on the car before I would want to show it again...

Needs a major re-paint too. Atleast the roof...
Thinking of redoing the sides to but not the front and rear hoods as I like the pinstripings on them too much..

What to do??
Go or not to go there...??

Sorry. Sitting outside under a couple of foot of snow for the moment. Wasn't even started last summer. Just "dry" driven by the youngest son a couple of times. (soon to be 2 yrs old.)

Last saturday I decided it was time to test if the engine still works in this... Not started for over a year so I first filled up some fuel and pulled a few times. Started almost right away!!

Then we went for a short drive. The three of us. Yes, three of us.

The oldest now 9 years old drove, I sat to the right and changed gears with the youngest sitting in my lap...

Very roomy little car I've built. Unfortunately no photos of vidclips from this event...

Today was time to bring the Kidvrod back home. It have been sitting by the garage out in the country by my parents place the past years.

Thought it would be fun for the kids to have it at home by their playhouse/cottage in our backyard...
