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!!

TrashCan support party April 3rd: wet, but fun !

Last Saturday, April 3rd, the Trashers had their first bash at our own clubhouse: The Trash-Can Support Party.

We invited a heapload of friends to join in with their cars, get some shirts, get even more grub'n'beer, and support the TrashCan tank in the process!
But oh boy, was it wet! The worst weather of the week, but you didn't let us down! 90% of the people who bought a presale ticket showed up, we sold 'bout 700 bottles of beer, at 5pm we completely ran out of burgers, our friends of the Dunlop Devils and the Cowpokes played blisters on their fingers, kids were entertained, the whole enchillada!

Thanx everyone for the great support, and for having a GREAT day!

Special thanks go out to:

- Our hard working heroe in the tastebuds ticklin' department: Manuel, a.k.a. "Kokkie". Visit his restaurant Chez Manu at Hoogstraat 50 Eindhoven!

- The greatest surf band around: The Dunlop Devils. Check 'em out on their myspace.

- The magnificent acoustic bluegrass trio: The Cowpokes.

- Louis for supplying Vedett beer and gimmicks such as the kustom beer bottle label printer.

Thanks again everyone and hope to see you all again soon!
