The Stanford Hall show is organised by the Leicestershire and Warwickshire VW owners club and is held in the grounds of the statley home, Stanford Hall, in the village of Stanford-on-Avon, Northamptonshire.
|The grounds of the statley home are massive,|
and the show takes full advantage of the space.
|A company were selling the components for this |
nice looking 1.6 turbo motor for a beetle.
|The same company offered a 2.0 motor to put|
in your split or bay.
|Concourse Beetle line up in front of the house |
was very impressive.
|James and I followed this beetle for a few miles|
en-route to the show in my '69 bay, and I
couldn't keep up with him...! I couldn't find the
owner to ask him what he was running...but it
|Lovely 1949 stock beetle, in jet black. |
|This early Military Police beetle was different with |
a paris sunroof
|The standard of the concourse cars was |
|I'm not sure light grey and salmon was a |
standard colour for beetles back in the day, but
maybe it should have been as this looked
|I spotted this in the 'For Sale' field, and I just|
had to take a picture because I knew that if I
told anyone about it they just wouldn't
|Now then what can I say about this apart from, |
|Gorgeous splitty panel van.|
|The show is spread out in the grounds of |
Stanford Hall. We must have walked a couple
of miles throughout the day.
|No matter what rocks your boat, whether it's a|
Razor edge, or a Karmann you will find it here.
|This lovely early beetle was not in the show but |
in the public car park.
|Yes the grass is quite long but you can still see|
how low this bug is and how narrow the front
|The public car park must have had over 1000|
vehicles in it, and I would say 3/4 of them were
VW's good enough to be in the show.
|Lovely split screen.|
|Interior was very nice, a good advert for the |
owners VW servicing and restoration Company.
|The traders at the show had equally nice |
vehicles as the show and shine area.
|A show wouldn't be a show without a Chevy|
|Lovely setting for a VW show, with equally |
|1970's Porsche looked great in lime green.|
|This Tempo Matador belonged to Phil Jarvis |
and must be as rare as rocking horse poo..
|Absolutly stunning. Thanks to Kerry, a follower |
of my blog from Custard Campers
telling me that this won 1st place on points, but
was not included in the trophies. Thanks Kerry.
|Split screen in army green, I liked the single|
spot light with beam protector.
|Another splitty in I think it was Swiss or German|
|Very nice sign written split screen panel van.|
|The split screen line up, was very impressive |
with what seemed like 100's of vehicles.
|Every variation of the split screen you could think |
of, and some you couldn't.!
|How about this for a low Karmann Ghia, and |
how about that for a narrowed beam?
|Wow, now that is radical.|
|There were quite a few early Porsches at the|
show, and this 356 was a fine example and I
for one didn't complain.
|Just to give you an idea the size of this show.|
|Kublewagen I love these go anywhere vehicles.|
|This one was brilliant, loved the body shape and|
the paint scheme.
|Interior certainly wasn't built for comfort, but it|
was purely functional and looked great.
|I would have liked to have seen a display of what|
they can do in these.
|Another show standard beetle in the public|
car park. The public car park was huge.
|This was the view on the way out looking back|
at the show, you can see how far away Stanford
Hall is, where the concourse beetles were
