VW = Very Wet...D Day

The chicken eggs offering for a sunny day,
didn't work! It was another wet VW GTG.
Partly because of the drizzle...
.......and partly a result of us drooling
profusely with these tasty Pinas Vdubs!

The main course of delight is this Brasilia,
indeed a Brazilian taut, tan and lovely beauty!



I adore this off-the-factory-floor looking US version 1303.

Sakbayan always makes me feel proud to be Pinoy.

All 21 windows of amazing sight.

Got the "crisp look" nailed with this Variant Type3

Cal-look Pinas Style is one Sano Bug.

La Raza Bug, borloloy made tasty!
A completely restored correct '67 VW 1500

These wild Things make the heart sing!

I want these VW T2 Campers, the coolest “Kulambo” on wheels

I'm a '70s VW fan, and this Notch & 1302S fit the bill.


Got the family joining me again and this year my brother (3rd photo) led the drooling, EEENjoy!

70’s Curved Groove

Times are swinging during the 70’s era.
Changes are on the groovy side.
Pants are flared, hair is curled!
Collars excessive, shoes are massive.

VW’s changing too on this wave.
Suddenly the aircooled Type1 & 2,
got the excessive curves.
Bodies are on the curve plum bulge.
Noticeable are the delightful,
curved windshield. Smashing!

Voluptuously groovy shapes aren’t they?

Caddy Custom Service

I was looking forward to the MB VW Caddy in blue
to be available locally and apply a Matchbox logo
on its sides, much like the MB VW van regular wheel.
Up to now it isn’t offered in our pegs…. too SLOW.
Talk about late distribution.

Glad, I got this one from Don, a few days ago, and
an idea formed for a lazy custom. Our VW friend is
a cool Notchback owner….
So I decided instead on putting a VW Notchback (Type3)
custom drawing I’ve done specifically for this Caddy.
A sort of advert for a shop I’ve dreamt of having.
The Caddy is a service vehicle for ….
“Komenda Custom Coachwork” shop doing
cabrio customs for VW Type3.

Here it is..

Shapely Fenders

Lazy Customs Series

In Motor Racing there exist liveries that are competitively attractive.
I consider them as Motorsports’ Livery Legends.
Such is the case of Jagermeister orange-clad racing machines.
It’s the same for Gulf Racing cars, a formula of great style and race success.
This holds true with the immense winning brew of Martini Racing.
A striking amalgamation of red, blues and white, surely to keep
the desire level factor shooting up. To top it off, these Martini machines
are collectively a victorious force in competition.

Such is the appeal of these liveries that I’m drawn to make custom diecast
wrapped in these renowned racing colors.
On the Martini front, I’m deeply attracted to the tri-colored stripes running
along the fender curves of the celebrated 70’s Porsche 934 RSR.
Darn, those are really amazingly attractive curves.
I’ve wanted to replicate them on a custom VW having similarly
shapely fenders.
Lo and behold Hotwheels provided a canvass for it to be applied.

Presenting the, Martini Racing VW GTI 5


Traditional sponsors were included; Shell, Bilstein, Bosch

New ones were introduced as well, Heuer, Yokohama…

and of course, Komenda Volkswagen!

Steve McQueen’s Bug

The film ‘Le Mans’ forever captured in it,
three legends.
First, is the Gulf racing Porsche 917.
Second, the Heuer Monaco wristwatch.
(my timepiece holy grail)
Third and the encore,
it immortalized Steve McQueen.

I have yet to land a model of that mighty
Gulf Porsche and something in me has
been throbbing to pacify this desire.
Once again tapping the ‘lazy custom’
approach and idle time to burn, the end
result is my tribute to Cool McQueen!

I would imagine Steve having a Flat-6
Porsche engine mounted at the back.

Since this is an ode to the 70’s, EMPI
was put to task on the VW performance.

Of course, this VW is a Matchbox,
a legend in diecast cars.

Another quick set of customs.
Again no painting required,

Team Adobo

It’s great to see that Vdub
is part of the Pinoy’s palette.
Like here in Pinas,
our love affair for VW is
distinctly flavorful.
Having experienced the
many gatherings and meet,
I’d say we Pinoys really
love our VWs with gusto.

Coming across these guys
in VW Vortex, assert these
observations even more.
Team Adobo Canada is
Vdubbin Pinoy style.
Check out their rides,
of which I drool and love
to have in my parking slot.




These rides are tasty!



Delicious pair of Jettas!
