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!!

Trash-Can project in Motorized! Magazine

The latest publication of Motorized Magazine, number 2, features the first of probably a series of articles about our Trash-Can bellytank project.
MOTORIZED! is all about hotrods, customs, choppers, bobbers and hot aircooled VW's and the lifestyle surrounding all of this, with minimal words and as much fuel injected eyecandy for the greased up mind as possible.

ElCheapo, Motorized's founder, editor, photographer and overall chief executive officer, visited the workshop a couple of months ago and brought along his camera to shoot the pictures found in the current issue. He'll be coming over more often so he can document the progress of our project, shooting material for upcoming issues. That's when he's not too busy with his custom paintjobs, pinstriping and travelling all over Europe promoting his magazine and gathering features for it.
Well, here's a lo-fi sneak peek, you really should just buy the magazine...
