As regular readers of my blog will know, on the last Wednesday of each month the 'House of Dub' and 'H.o.D. Imports hold a monthly get-together which is an informal affair with friendly people, a good variety of vehicles and at a great location, and this month was no exception. Why not check out the H.o.D. website http://www.houseofdub.co.uk/Welcome.html after you have finished here of course.!
|A lovely evening for a cruise over to the Hare and |
Hounds pub in Ledburn, LU7 0QB for the monthly
H.O.D. VW meet. Stuart led in his yellow '67 beetle
followed by James and Helen in their immaculate blue
beetle, and I followed in my bus.
|Ledburn is a small village in Bedfordshire and getting |
to it means driving along scenic country roads on a
sunny evening... it's a hard life eh?
|Shortly after we arrived some members from another |
VW club, 'Ox Dubs' pulled into the car park. It was
great to see them again as they came quite a distance
to be here.
|This stunning square back was 'riding on air'|
|Not many road driven cars are this clean. The |
paint was immaculate and the chrome work
shone like new.
|When you have such a clean car you need some |
special wheels to compliement the body, and
these Porsche wheels are a perfect choice.
|Under the trunk was just as clean as the outside. |
Note the hydraulic suspension.
|Interior was, as you would expect immaculate.|
|This lovely notchback was full of period accessories.|
|The patina look, the ratty suitcases and the overall |
look of this notch make it stand out from the crowd.
|This buggy just looks so much fun. If I was going to |
get a buggy, this is just how I'd like it.
|I love the triple light set, and the roll cage, and the |
|But most of all, I love the polished alloy side panels.|
|The H.o.D. monthly meet is not just for air-cooled |
VW's, this super clean Golf with tinted windows
arrived and caught my eye.
|My bus, Jame's blue beetle and Stuarts bug with |
the chequered front.
|'Toby', James and Helen's beetle with it's new lowered stance |
looking as clean as ever.
|We never lose Stuart's bug in a crowd, it certainly |
|'Spike' of the 'House of Dub' brought along his newly |
finished Audi powered T25. It sounded mean
and certainly didn't hang around.
|This really clean Polo arrived, and is a regular at |
the H.o.D. meet.
|Super straight, super clean,and a trick exhaust.. you |
don't have to spend thousands to have a nice motor.
|It was nice to see Ben there in his split screen, |
he was syaing that his bus is good for 100mph
|This blue buggy arrived, I didn't catch the owners |
name or where he's from but it was nice to see
him and his buggy.
|Not ideal for the British climate, but I bet he has |
some fun driving around.
|This T25 turned up and once again I didn't catch |
the owners name, even though I spent some
time talking to him.!
|Mark arrived in his lovely T5, with very low profile tyres.|
|T4 / T5 is doesn't matter what you drive, |
( hey that rhymes !) at the House of Dub.
|This is Zoe's (from House of Dub) current ride |
she was saying they have now
sold it, and just waiting for the new owner to
|A very casual affair with everyone just chatting about a|
all sorts of topics.. all though most conversations were
|The 'Ox Dubs' vehicles drew some admiring glances, |
and the owners were very chatty about their rides.
|James and Helen leaving, nice to see you both, |
see you soon.
