VW Campervan is the most famous campervan in the world. They pioneered the campervan world as we know it today back in the 1950’s. The combination of a compact van equipped with all the basics of your home was & still is the most practical combination to explore the world far beyond the imaginary fence of your home. The words freedomadventure are what to describe these vans.  And now, they are here in Indonesia & available for rental, for yourself or with your family, friends & loved ones, for a weekend camping or simply a day trip picnic outside the town.
VW Campervan adalah kendaraan campervan yang paling terkenal sedunia. VW memelopori jenis kendaraan yang sekarang disebut campervan ini di tahun 1950-an. Kendaraan jenis ini sangat populer karena Anda dapat membawa rumah secara praktis untuk dibawa jalan-jalan keluar. Bebas menjelajah adalah dua kata yang sangat jelas mendefinisikannya. Sekarang, campervan ini telah hadir di Indonesia & tersedia untuk disewa untuk Anda sendiri, atau untuk mengajak sekeluarga camping di akhir pekan atau piknik keluar kota, bersama teman atau siapa saja yang Anda cintai.

Queen Beetle

Legendary rock band Queen has been inspiring millions since their London formation in 1970. With the charismatic, musical genius front man born Farrokh Bulsara — aka Freddie Mercury — (Lead vocals, piano), Brian May (Vocals, Guitar), John Deacon (Vocals, Bass) and Drummer Roger Taylor (Vocals, Drums).

Queen has represented musical vision and freedom through their pioneering and creative approaches to composition and poetic, on-point song lyrics. The band continues to earn new fans of all ages and backgrounds 48 years after their initial formation.

It has been a Bohemian Rhapsody fever here in this country. As a fans of Queen myself, since 1982, I’m posting these photos of our 1963 VW Beetle accompanied by quotes taken from Queen’s songs, lyrics or a comment.

VW Beetle Camping

Two weeks ago, during the fasting month of Ramadhan, my friend & I went for a camping at Ciapus area, Bogor, about 65km away from Jakarta. This time, we drove our Volkswagen 1303 Super Beetle. I was by myself  & my friend brought his 3.5yo daughter & 6.5yo all-black German Shepherd.

The road is pretty much in good condition, though we had to pass some bad traffic areas & several hundreds meter of bad road. The camping ground elevation is about 400m, so not that hot neither that cold, by the foot of Salak mountain in the middle of pine forest. Good thing is, the cell phone signal is acceptable, so you are still connected to the world…

Other good thing is, due to fasting month, there was only us in the camping ground; 3 humans & 1 dog. Felt like our own personal camping ground. We were also allowed to drive our cars & parked them inside the camping ground. On normal days, the cars are parked outside the camping ground.

The toilets (squat type) & bathrooms are available with clean running water, spring water. The toilet is lit at night. Also, places for wudhu or washing your dishes are located in the same area, about 50m away from our tents.

Actually some shops are available there but all of them were closed during Ramadhan. When they are open, instant noodles, snacks & hot-cold drinks are available. Rice & heavy dishes only available upon request.

There is a pool on the nearby river where we can swim safely. The spring water is clean, clear & fresh. The size is about 10m x 10m. The deepest part is 150cm with rocks on the pool floor. The location is about 100m from our tents.

The name of the place is purposely not written here to maintain the ‘privacy’. Please contact us directly if you are interested to visit it.

Here are some photographs with some famous camping quotes:

Visiting Terror Garage, Bandung

Last weekend, SBO (Super Beetle Owner) Indonesia community had an opportunity to visit an extra-ordinary the one-only place in Bandung, called Terror Garage. It’s a workshop, a shop, a personal gallery or you may call it an automobile museum, displaying rare, exotic & collectable Volkswagen & Porsche cars. Nobody feels comfortable to talk about the price, just enjoying the cars…

The gallery has two stories. The RWB custom Porsche are displayed on ground floor. The rare classic vintage VW & Porsche are displayed on the basement.

Here are some of the pictures to share, for your eyes only…

In total, there are 13 super high value cars here in the basement…

TG 46

This is a Volksrod or Rodbug, a rod-style custom VW Beetle, & built from an Oval Beetle (1952-1958). Builder: unknown, but I suspect it was Terror Garage themselves…

TG 58

I think the most unnoticed displayed car is this Volkswagen Type 3 (1961-1973), Squareback aka Variant…

TG 50

The only Porsche displayed here is Porsche 356, the Porsche’s first production automobile (1948-1965), therefore it’s one of the most hunted by Porsche collectors in the world. This particular one is the Porsche 1500S (1500cc engine, Luxury version).

TG 55

The owner of Terror Garage is also a collector of VW & Porsche diecast models. There are more than 1 thousand pieces in this rack…
