We are the Trashers, a Dutch Car Club. We build, modify, kustomize and drive all kinds of old vintage US cars. So what's the deal ? Well...since the 1920's speed addicts try to push their vehicles to the limits on salt flats and dry lake beds like El Mirage and Bonneville, USA. And that's exactly where we want to go too!
But...instead of using a high-dollar, computer-controlled car we like to break a land speed record like they did in the fifties, using a vintage flathead engine for power and the best possible body to put this in; an all aluminum fighter airplane droptank... Yes you heard it right ! We're planning to go to the salt lakes with our bellytank racer!!!
And that's where you as a reader come in. We sure could do with some funds!
So, if you like speed, vintage cars and share the same enthousiasm in breaking a speed record as we do...
Join in and make a donation to our bank number on the right. Or buy yourself a "Trash-Can" t-shirt or some cool stickers. We'll keep you informed about the progress of 'your' project!
Thanks for making our dream come true!!

Show your support with a Trash-Can t-shirt

Trasher Sascha is the smallest and lightest of us, which is why he'll be piloting the cramped Trash-Can down the salt flats. Well, maybe because he's fearless as well. Or just because he Can?! But anyway, he's also a very good tattoo artist down in Eindhoven Rock City's finest tattoo parlour. This brings along the benefit of his ability to design a logo to represent the Trash-Can project.

Sascha designed the "Trash-Can Vintage Fourbanger Flathead" logo primarily for the limited edition first series of t-shirts.
Also from Eindhoven Rock City, Paul of Blendomatic fame, collaborated with us on the production of the t-shirts. He's the number one supplier of cool Rock City related merchandise.

People who buy a Trash-Can shirt not only look the part, but support us because the proceeds go towards finishing the Trash-Can bellytank racer and improving the world speed record in the Vintage Fourbanger Flathead class. The shirts are stylishly olive drab green colored and feature a small logo on the front and a biggun on the back. They've been selling like crazy at the Rockin' Jalopy's Motorama and Speedfest events we attended last few weeks.

If you haven't been to one of these events, didn't buy one there (shame on you!) or if you want more, you can order 'm from behind your computer the same easy way as the stickers of the previous blog post. Just drop us an e-mail at and we'll set things in motion. No, still no Paypal, hey it's only been about an hour since the last post...

This is a short promo film featuring footage shot at the Rockin' Jalopy's Motorama.

Thank you for buying a Trash-Can Vintage Fourbanger Flathead t-shirt!

Thanks to Paul for making the t's!
