Ruska Classica. The freebooter feeling

Ruska Classica
ER Classics Desktop 2022

Not just any car, the charm is appealing. Ruska, the manufacturer from Amsterdam called him 'Classica', but his birth certificate said: Volkswagen - brown - buggy (1968). For the Ruska Classica, it must go back to the 70s when buggies were extremely popular. 

By: Dirk de Jong

You could see the creativity of the designers in the different types. Indeed, the mechanical horsepower on the four-wheeler came from the Beetle. Fortunately, there are still people who keep the buggies on the road and partly due to the enthusiasm of Dirk and Gijs Hijlkema from Wolvega in Friesland, we can still admire the charming appearance - in a radiant condition. 

This Ruska Classica is of course an important part of the leisure activities, just feel one with nature, where the simmering sound of the air-cooled classic does not detract. Maybe top up your tan. (It's a sunbed.) Maybe look at the stars and realize that the main space in the Ruska Classica is unlimited. 

Funcars are driven very limited. It continues to enjoy the lines and the sight. Let's take it as a tribute to Ruska for their decisiveness and craftsmanship. The buggy legend is continued by Dirk and Gijs, whereby the feeling of freebooters can flare up again and again.
