As Herbie’s World Tour isn’t going to end soon, we’ve been looking for sponsorships in order to continue what we’ve begun three years ago. “Mick Motors” from Brisbane, Australia, is one of those sponsors! We got to know Mick when we traveled all across “down under” and Herbie started leaking motor oil. The Love Bug needed new oil cooler gaskets very badly… After all, Mick was the one who helped us out!
Domi finished his work on the engine of Herbie No. II. Instead of the fuel injected 1,600 cc, the Love Bug got now his original 1,200 cc back. The motor came from a burnt out Volkswagen Bug made in Mexico. Domi installed brand new cylinders and pistons as well as an additional modern type oil filter. Herbie is now ready to go A-F-R-I-C-A!
Flo from DLV and Friedrich helped Domi putting the “new” engine together and also surprised him with a very special feature – a light for the engine bay. At this point we want to say thank you for all your help and support on Herbie’s World Tour!
