The Ghost, Berlin’s Mobile Record Shop is currently out of action. The van needs a new engine, here is a crowd funder to help pay for the parts + professional installation.

As you might already know, The Ghost is currently out of action. Mechanical problems dating back to last year were made ten times worse by the sub-zero winter conditions. Much like what happens when you put a beer in the freezer, expanding liquid destroyed some vital parts of our engine and damaged it beyond repair.

When planning to open a record shop in a 40-year old van, we recognised there would be a certain amount of risk involved. We knew that mechanical issues such as this one would inevitably occur from time to time. And, of course, they have, usually with minimal hassle and fuss. However, this latest setback is bigger than we could have expected or prepared for, and requires a repair job that will cost almost as much as the van itself.

A new engine, in good condition, with around 100,000km on the clock is neither cheap nor particularly easy to find. Due to our relative lack of experience in that field, we have a few local Mercedes-heads on the case helping us to find an engine and then install it professionally.

Without the means to sell the records, raising the money entirely on our own is nigh-on impossible. So here is an appeal to our friends, family, supporters, collaborators and customers to help us reach our 3k target. Anything you can do to help get us back on the road would be much appreciated.
