|By the time I arrived at Pease Pottage services|
to meet the rest of the WBC guy's the rain was
coming down like it was the end of the world. Even
though I needed a comfort break and some break-
fast I decided to sit in the bus for a while.
|It wasn't all bad though, at least I had Ricki's RAT|
look panel van to admire that was parked up in
front of me.
|I also had 'Margo', Rich Coxhill's '72 blue and |
white late bay to look at. The rain was starting to
ease, so maybe it's time to go and get some
breakfast and go to the toilet, but not necessarily
in that order!
|My 1969 microbus parked up in the rain next to|
Rich's blue and white '72 late bay, Paul's 1967
SO42 Westfalia and Davyd's slammed grey
Subaru powered 1991 T25 and it looks like
Kat's 1985 red T25.
|WBC members Chris's orange bay and Simon's |
blue and white panel van getting wet in the
services car park.
|Chris's bright orange 2.0 litre auto high top bay|
certainly brightens up the dull overcast car park.
|As the WBC left the services to head to Brighton|
in a huge convoy, I had the pleasure of following
Ricki in his awesome ratty panel van. This is one
cool looking van.
|As there were so many WBC buses that met up|
at the services, getting out was busy to say the
least, I let Ross squeeze in, in his lovely '69 bay.
|En-route to Brighton, the WBC convoy made|
good time and the amount of classic Volkswagens
heading down the A23 was amazing. It's at times
like these that I need someone to ride shotgun to
take decent photos!
|The WBC have arrived in Brighton. Robin in his |
cool 1965 walk through split screen panel van
followed me onto Maderia Drive, which is where all
the buses line up for the show. I took this photo
whilst queueing up to get into the show.
|I love this old ratty split screen. I've seen it many|
times at this show and every year it still looks
as good. There are more photos of this bus
later on in this blog review.
|Ricki's grey RAT look panel van and Craig's|
'57 blue school bus parked up on the seafront
at Brighton. Both these guy's are WBC members.
|A better look at Craig's '57 school bus parked|
up alongside Paul's white SO42 Westfalia.
|WBC member Kat came along to the Breeze in|
her stunning 1985 T25. This really is a lovely
looking bus. I do like these T25's and could easily
|Susie's lovely white over blue '67 split screen|
(parked nearest the camera) bus parked up at
the Brighton Breeze show.
|More WBC buses, Rich's blue and white Westy|
Continental, Darren's white Westy and Davyd's
|A better look at the buses, (above) which marked|
the start of the Wolfsburg Bus Crew's line up.
|More WBC vehicles at Brighton Breeze, Jason's|
Yellow '74 bay parked just along from my bus.
|A better look at WBC member Jason 'Ginger |
Jay's '74 late bay, which he affectionately refers
to it as 'my crappy yellow and white bay' !
|My 1969 microbus parked up at Brighton with|
Robin's '65 'Brumos Racing' split panel van.
|A blog review of an any VW event that I attend|
wouldn't be complete with a photo of my 1969
microbus... so here it is!! I'm surprised on how
clean she looks considering the awful weather
I had to drive through to get to Brighton.
|Two more WBC members vehicles. I don;t know|
who owned the white over blue bay, but I do know
that Simon owns the gorgeous green and white
|Here's a better look at Simon's 1961 single cab|
split screen pick up. This really is a cool looking
bus. I love the overall look of Simon's ride.
|A trio of cool T25's that are part of the WBC. Kat's|
red 1985 T25 named 'Bertie', Gary's '86 yellow
T25 and Karen's blue high top T25, with Heather
just parking her yellow '71 rag top early bay.
|It may be dull and overcast on the seafront but|
Chris's stunning 1979 bright orange 2.0 late bay
brightens up the seafront display.
|CJ's red '76 slammed bay and Mark's orange |
Devon and Richard's green and white bay, all
these guys are WBC members. CJ is an optimist,
it's early October in the U.K and we are on the
seafront, it's cold and wet and CJ is wearing shorts!!
|Cara, another WBC member went to the|
Brighton Breeze in her gorgeous '67 split
|I'm not sure if these buses were part of the WBC|
line up or not, as there were so many buses and
bugs on the seafront and so many WBC buses
they all sort of mingled into one!
|This radical slammed brown bug caught my eye,|
just look at that reflection on the door and rear
quarter panel, hows that for a shine! I did like
the overall look of this cool bug.
|The custom wheels were neat, the banded rear|
wheels with the stretched tyres only just fit under
the rear arches. Those spiked wheel nuts added
the final touch.
|The early tail lights and the custom engine lid|
with air scoop suited the overall look of this
old rag top beetle.
|From one extreme to another, I spotted this old|
bug on the back of a trailer, it was for sale but it
needed just a small (!) amount of work!
|The dreaded rust has got a good hold of this old|
bug. I can't remember how much it was up for sale
for, but it drew plenty of attention.
|There were plenty of vehicles for sale at the show|
to suit all budgets and I'm guessing this was priced
|The Brighton Breeze show is organised by the|
split screen van club and as you we expect the
number of split screen vans was immense. This
is the S.S.V.C.'s biggest show of the year.
|Split screen buses of all years, models and|
styles lined both sides of Maderia Drive on
Brighton's sea front.
|This '64 split screen slowly cruised past me as|
I wandered along Maderia Drive. I do like to see
a stock looking bus and this bus ticked all the
right boxes for me.
|It was overcast and grey, and not to mention wet|
so I didn't think to carry my sunglasses, but when
this super bright lime green and white split drove
past I wish I had of been wearing them! This '64
bus was super clean oh, so bright!
|This gorgeous '69 turquoise and white Dormobile|
belongs to WBC member Chris. This really is a
lovely bus that is so straight and clean. Chris is
also a member of the WBC.
|This stunning '77 white over blue late bay belongs|
to Dave and Theresa who are both WBC members.
This bus really was so clean despite the lousy
weather we had earlier in the day.
|The 'patina' look is still big here in the U.K. and|
this '69/70 early bay had plenty of patina. It also
had a few knocks and scrapes which gave it a
cool RAT look.
|The sheer diversity of vehicles at the Breeze is|
immense. Whatever type of Volkswagen your
into, you'll be able to find it here. It's not just air
cooled VW's, the Breeze now attracts plenty
of water cooled T25's, and T4 / T5's.
|This is that radical split screen bus that I took a|
photo of whilst queueing up to get into the show.
This old '65 bus has so many accessories and
bolt on goodies.
|You could spend ages looking around this bus,|
the old skool flames give this bus an old hot rod
|The guy's from 'The Early Bay.com' were at the|
Breeze in force. When these guy's go to a show,
they certainly put on a good display.
|There were early bay's from all years, models|
and ride heights!
