Et bien, voilà : j'ai 29 ans et je suis passionné de VW aircooled depuis 12 ans maintenant. Au départ, comme beaucoup, j'ai craqué sur les cox fuschia, mais rassurez vous, jamais sur le rose bonbon. Puis la maturité aidant, j'ai évolué vers le Resto-cal pour finir sur les tendances Old School et Nostalgia. Le déclic s'est produit lors de la sortie d'un Super VW présentant les autos du club californien Der Kleiner Panzers. Le bouquin de Keith Seume a ensuite achevé de me convaincre, et là, c'est irréversible. Thanks God SEUME.
Ah oui, j'allais oublier, je suis alsacien d'adoption et je vis actuellement à Colmar en Alsace.
Comme je n'ai pas trouvé de photo de moi seul, je me suis dit que quelques photos prises lors de mon périple aux States avec quelques légendes vivantes du mouvement feraient l'affaire... All guys shown below posing with me are true legends and I want to thank them all for their devotion and time. THANKS TO YOU ALL and THANKS TO MY WIFE, Lo²TTE, WHO WAS BEHIND THE CAMERA.
I stand on this picture with Frenchy DEHOUX who lives in Tempe (Arizona) just near Phoenix. Picture was taken one sunday night at Frenchy's home during my Arizona trip. I'm sure everybody knows Frenchy (Jean-Louis) by his old world famous yellow Ghia (one of my all time favourite VW).
I had such a great time with Frenchy who still speaks very well french. Keep posted on my site coz I let you discover all his nostalgia VW goodies & memorabilia and believe me, it's crazy.
Another place, another living legend. That's Ron FLEMING himself. Talk about an opportunity to meet such a person. I was lucky enough to meet Ron at his well respected shop : FAT in L.A. He was at that time working on a 356 Porsche engine.
This picture was taken while visiting the Gene Berg shop. I'm standing with Clyde BERG and Tim WALKER. OK, je sais, je fait tout petit au milieu de ces deux géants ;)) Tim was friendly enough to make me a tour of the shop and believe me, it's incredible...
This is Tom LIEB of the famous SCAT company. I was lucky enough to make a factory tour with the boss himself. Many Thanks to you for that Tom. Again, it's incredible. Watch out for pictures later.
Everybody knows the famous Keith SEUME from England. Without a doubt, Keith is one of the most european VW enthusiast and one of the most respected guy. In fact, he's a DKP 3 member. We met at OCTO 2001 and that was so great to have a little chat about his future plans...
This is my well known buddy Stéphane Szantaï from France. He's a very great guy and is a DKP 3 member. Stephane was friendly enough to introduce me to the DKP staff, and to show me the way, with Scott BAKEN, to Knockwood for Berg rallye arrival. Picture was taken at West Coast Classic B.B.Q.
