One of the best talked about VW shows in the UK calendar is Camper Jam, ( http://www.camperjam.com/ ) which is held at Weston Park, Shropshire. Weston Park is a 17th century country house set in over 1000 acres, landscaped by Capability Brown. God only knows what he would think about 1000's of VW's driving over his grounds once a year!
(Due to the number of photo's I took, I will post the write up of the show in two parts.)
|By the time we arrived at Weston Park, the |
rain had stopped and the sun was shining. The
queue into the show with my green bay, Claude's
grey split, and David's blue / white split just a
little bit further back.
|David and Angela waiting in the slow moving |
line of vehicles into the show.
|Claude and Jean had the same idea as me, to |
stretch their legs as it was a 5 hour journey
to get to Weston Park from our home town.
|Claude (http://zibisplit.blogspot.co.uk/ and Jean |
put up their awning and made some long overdue
dinner with Angela just getting comfortable.
|My home from home. This is the first outing for|
my home made awning. Made from bit's I had
laying about... not bad for a first attempt.
|Our friends, Zoe and Spike from House of Dub,|
got there before us and made a really cozy camp
as they are seasoned campers.! Zoe's bay / Alden's
bay and Richards T4 all open up into the camp area.
|David and Angela's splitty with drive away |
|As it took so long to get to the show, it wasn't|
long before it was dark. Entertainment area was
busy and mud was starting to get worse!
|Lovely Karmann Ghia was riding on air.|
|Lovely pinstripe detailing on the boot and colour|
choice looked totally awesome.
|Most people that have air suspension normally |
hide all the 'internals', this Karmann made a
feature of the air tanks and hydraulics.
|Trade area of the show, very muddy but busy. |
Traders were selling everything you could think
of, and probably some things you couldn't
|I do like unusual cycles, and this caught my eye.|
Priced at £190, I was tempted. It looked awesome.
|Nice split screen on an island of grass.|
|Lovely yellow and white split screen I spotted |
in one of the camping areas.
|If I had a child they would be riding around on|
this type of tricycle, cool eh? Love the rear
fenders and handlebars.
|This really neat T5 double cab pick up, with|
fender skirts looked unusual.
|Home made pick up bed with a T2 rear end...|
|I do like a ratty bus and this splitty ticked all |
|Love the faint chequered detailing around the|
rear quarters and down the side.
|It had an awsome looking 2.0 ltr motor in it.|
|When I first saw this trailer made from a T25 |
front end I wasn't that impressed...
|But I tell you what... it looks more comfy than |
my bay, even though it was a bit girlie.
|Lovely single cab split in German military livery.|
|A good variety of single cab split screens.|
|A true ratty single cab. Looks fab.|
|Walking around the campsite, I spotted some|
lovely vehicles, including this splity.
|There were a lot of vehicles that arrived and |
just parked up in the camping area, and unless
you walked around the various camping
area's you would never have seen them.
|If you have it, flaunt it, and the owner of this split|
screen had every conceivable accessory in as
|Now this is just perfect.|
|Yep, from every angle I cannot find one thing |
