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…

Pink Floyd Concert in Gunung Pancar

The Mountains are my Bones,

its pounding is my Pulse.
The Songs of the Earth
write the Music of my Soul.

Just a few days before the Eid festival last week in early July 2016, we brought Pink Floyd campervan to Gunung Pancar for family camping. Here are the photo essay:
