Beste deelnemers, standhouders, sponsors,
Er zal geen Bug Show 2007 plaatsvinden om redenen buiten onze wil om
(werkzaamheden op het circuit en een ingekorte kalender),
en dat teneinde u in 2008 in goede omstandigheden te ontvangen.
Wij bedanken u nogmaals voor uw trouw sinds menige jaren,
alsook alle aanwezige deelnemers van de editie 2006
van hun gedrag tijdens het gehele weekend.
Afspraak in 2008
This Model 35 was discovered in 1953 in a local garage with a mere 800 miles on the odometer. After being repainted, it was pinstriped by Kenneth Howard, better known as Von Dutch, a celebrated pop artist renowned for his eccentricity and artistic talent
Here are scans of two original Von Dutch business cards. To the far left is his pinstriping card and next to it is his machinist card
No discussion of Von Dutch would be complete without touching on the subject of his famous Flying Eyeball logo.
What's the story behind it?
According to Von Dutch, the flying eyeball originated with the
Macedonian and Egyptian cultures about 5000 years ago.
It was a symbol meaning "the eye in the sky knows all and sees all",
or something like that. Dutch got a hold of this symbol
and modified it into the flyin'eyeball we know of today.
He always believed in reincarnation, and the eyeball,
somehow, was tied to that.
There have been numerous "incarnations" of this design
over the years.
It still remains an icon of the '50s and '60s street rod crowd.
Now ya know!
