    Here are some pics from today's DYNO MANIA 2009 Day.

    The event was sponsored by Al Agyik's DAS RESTO HAUS and held at Leons Motors 284 Musgrave Road Salisbury in Brisbane today.

    [​IMG]

    All sorts of VW's were entered ........ air-cooled and water-cooled .......... stock and enhanced up to drag/race specs .......... kombis/beetles/Type 3's/Karman Ghia's/Buggies/Golfs/Polos etc .........

    Here are some pics from the few hours I was there, but I am sure that Al or Brendan can post some more of the day.

    Here is what was on the Dyno when I arrived .........

    The readout on the screen for the audience to see what was being done on the Dyno ......

    Oh O .......... sometimes some mongrel jumps the fence and joins in .......... here's Wilfred on the Dyno .........

    [​IMG]

    My God he's stolen one of the G'ster's dolls ........ Snow White ........ dressed her up in some Barbie frock .......... and put it on his front dash. That dog is an absolute disgrace!

    Here is Wilfred being put through his paces by Leon ......

    [​IMG]

    Obviously the mongrel did something offensive .......... and Leon jumped out ......... :lol:

    [​IMG]

    Although Leon and his crew did say that Wilfred's two runs on the Dyno basically were the same .................... producing a maximum 63.4 HP on Run 1 and 63.5 HP at about 85 kmphr on the readout graph each entrant got after their turn on the Dyno.

    Unfortunately it wasn't enough for Wilfred ....... He obviously expected to do more ........ and he tried to chew up the read out before I could pry it out of his mouth.

    The video camera set up behind the Dyno and beamed up to the monitor for the audience to see on the screen.

    After a while it was time to wander outside to get some sun and see what was around the car park.

    Would have to talk to Brendan aka Life in the Low Lane to see if they kept a record of all the VW's who ran on the Dyno.

    That was just the one I got for Wilfred.

    John Sherman Volks Conversions finished the Adapter Plates finished on Friday so will get them early next week.

    Then it's a phone call to Mick to start the ball rolling and put some Radar rims and new rubber on. It has been a long time since we got them in February but there is light at the end of the tunnel for Wilfred to get some new wheels on.

    Also will be able to book Wilfred in for a lowering at Custom Vee Dub.

    Whilst at Dyno Mania I did talk to Aaron about the customised rear safar for Wilfred like the ones he has on his drag bus.

    Here are some pics of what it will look like.
