Hello, World.

This blog will inform anyone who’s bored enough to follow it of the slow progress in getting my ‘70 Volkswagen Convertible back on the road. Me, that’s Erik Meltzer, or Ermel for short. I live in Braunschweig, Germany. So does my convertible again, as of this year.

I’ve owned it for about 15 years now, but only drove it for the first two; it’s been in storage ever since. This year is going to change that. My (optimistic) goal is to get it running this year, and registered and street-legal for the 2011 convertible season.

So, if you feel this might be somewhat interesting, be my guest. Don’t expect daily updates though.
