More press

Today we received an envelop from Paul Etherington, a hard-core Sand Scorcher fan and owner of Zippyracing, with three Racer Magazins from England. That mag is about RC cars but they made a exception for the Bug Box Scorcher. It's the first 1:1 car that graces their pages - and the cover! Thank you guys!

30th of April and we are heading towards Hannover for the traditional DFL May Cruise Madness and the 1st of May Show - the german season opener. Besides the Scorcher two more cars were allowed to join the fun - Walters 15 window Split Bus and the cool Veep (a Jeep with VW engine, build in the 70s in the USA).

In the morning of the 1st of May a huge crowed surrounded the Sand Scorcher. Questions upon questions were asked by the people and if we didn't answer all of them - grab one of the next issues of the german Motor Klassik magazine and you will get all answers by reading the great feature on the Sand Scorcher.

Helge Ohmes, long time VW treasure hunter and the man who awakened Walters interest in building a real size Sand Scorcher took a seat behind the steering wheel - what a smile!

Walter at the show stage. He answered all the questions presenter Otto Meyer-Spelbrink was asking, who seemed to be impressed by the perfect Baja Bug.

It got a bit quieter in the afternoon and the little Scorcher came out for some suntan.

By the end of the day Walter got another award for the big toy. Posing proud in front of his creation for the last time, as the car is going on a world tour - first to the US, then to Japan.
