Der Luftkühlers (dLk) is a group of vintage Volkswagen enthusiasts committed to building and maintaining air-cooled VW's. The founding principals of our group are the dedication to vintage VW's, to helping each other, and having a good time. We all go out of our way to help each other build the best possible cars we can by sharing parts, knowledge, and skills freely with one another . We have no "blueprint" as to what our cars look like. Our VW's range from totally stock, to full custom, to fire breathing street monsters. Anyone is eligible to join dLk, but they must prove their dedication to our founding principals and be approved and voted in by existing members before they are allowed to become a member.
