    Ringmeet 2018, because we're not finnished with this.

    wtf is going on here already :lol: so, since I already hinted I'd come for like two years now, I'd like to say so for a third time. This time I'll hopefully make it, since there's a festival barely 200 km and nine days away happening in 2018. Also, I made some Progress on the Partymobile, I...

    Hey guys :) so between fixing up my new (shared) flat in Regensburg, where I study, fixing stuff at home and working on the side as a chimney sweep, I squeezed in a few hours of cleaning up our neighbours shed so I can use it as a garage :) And I swear, there was a metric shitton of stuff in...

    You could just run a piece of fuel hose from that filter to a jerry can to see if it really is fuel system related? Although if driving around is nesseccary for the problem to occur, that might trigger external combustion mode... :blowup:

    Weell, if you both mean the hazy windows, I refuse to comment that :rolleyes: A friend of mine loooves to listen to hardcore doom metal <_< so that is what was playing... Out of a dimly lit, rusty bus. I'm glad there are literally NO people around here at night :lol: FUNKY TIME! The popo...

    Oh, you mean something like the one I have sitting less than 4 meters from the bus right now? Ignore the mess, usually it looks more organised in the garage :P Don't get your hopes up though, it's not going to happen, mainly because of this: That's with the ruler touching the very back of...

    What's Your Personal Top Speed?

    Eh, they aren't that far off, and your engine should probably be able to make you go >200 km/h. Try reaching it in 4th gear if you get another chance, I heard the 5th is geared too tall to reach top speed in it ;) Didn't get a chance to try this theory in mine yet, since I only have my 5th gear...

    Yeah, I haven't read about any easy power gaining methods for these... I might port the intake for better airflow, but I honestly don't see the point in going much beyond that. It is a truck after all, and there's nothing wrong with slow trucks. Besides, I honestly think that this has less than...

    So you're saying instead of going to a driving school, I should invest in a return flight to the U.S.? :lol:

    Future Plans... Future Plans... So, I already posted half of what happened yesterday, but it just kept on getting better... After I drove it over one house, and started cleaning it, our neighbour Martin told me I could leave it in their driveway since it wasn't actually in the way (hard to...

    Forum-wide survey: How oomphy is your ride?

    Yeah, sorry for adding them all at once... Also, I did an oopsie. When I wrote gas for the 124 and 116, I meant gasoline, not LPG ;)

    :lol::lol::lol: I can only imagine their pain. the OM314 (the only appropiate engine for this) didn't come with an automatic, so it must be a 2.4L diesel or less... :| I cant change much about the slow, but I'll try and take some of the raw edge off ;) And since we're talking about progress...

    Forum-wide survey: How oomphy is your ride?

    So, now that I completed my garage and can finally win this game of "who has the slowest diesel", I might aswell join :D The joker first: 1979 Mercedes-Benz O309 508D 'Blume' 3758 cc, Diesel I4, N/A, manual 63 kW @ 2800 rpm 235 Nm @ 1800 rpm 3460 kg "leergewicht" (probably inlcuding the...

    I finally managed to snap a proof pic: ... and Name it. Or rather, it was named 38 years ago, when it first entered service: I thought about some other names, but "Flower" fits the hippiemobile quite well. So, thanks random police officer, and enjoy your retirement :) Also, I finally managed...

    No, I don't think so... Although I could make you want even more by posting another video of it starting up, because right now it starts on the first crank :cool: But I think if you really wanted one, there are probably enough in the US to find one for you, without the crazy interior :) I...

    Very nice. Both the car and the work that went into it :bow: Is it going to serve as a summer or sunday car now that it's finished? :)
