Part 2 of the BeachBuggin 2012 show...
|Lovely early ragtop beetle was immaculate.|
|This multi coloured beetle belongs to friends|
of mine from Aylesbury. Dave and Angela left
their split screen at home and took their
'Comic Relief' beetle. (hence the big red
nose on the bonnet!)
|Although BeachBuggin is primarily a VW |
show, there were quite a few scooters that
turned up. There must have been over 50 in
all, and it was great to see them.
|Staying on the bike theme, a couple of trikes|
also turned up, powered by air-cooled flat 4's.
The attention to detail on these trikes was
|Very similar designs but oh so different.|
|I do like flames on a vehicle (back to my hot-|
rod days again) and the flames on this beetle
looked really cool, enhanced by the choice of
|The standard of all the vehicles was very high.|
This blue split was really clean... should have
taken more photo's of it.
|Stunning green and white split screen. I just|
loved this darker green colour.
|Another very clean split screen. I did like the |
window arrangement on this one.
|A pair of gorgeous splits, between them they|
had every accessory imaginable, and if you
have it.. flaunt it.!
|Some of the beetles in the line up. Again the|
standard of the 'show' cars was very high.
|A lovely way to spend a sunny Sunday|
afternoon. Just chillin' with your VW amongst
friends down by the coast.
|Early Porsche was tucked away near the sea |
front. Very nice.
|Unusual colour mix, but it certainly works for|
me. Again only two windows in the back, not
sure if this was standard or not but I do
like this arrangement.
|This split screen was a bit of a rat look, but I |
loved it. Those yellow spots on the front look
|Karmann Ghia must have been restored as|
it was absolutly immaculate.
|A turret pop top on the split screen. Very nice.|
|Nice painted decal on this late bay.|
|The owner even had a matching 'Monkey|
Bike', now that is just showing off...!
|single colour split. Loved the colour and the|
overall look of this.
|I spotted this behind a line of split screens, not|
quite sure what it is, but it's made of plastic and
has something like a 1000cc motor.
|It certainly looked a bit odd from every angle.|
|A pair of split screens enjoying the sun.|
|Single cab early bay in solid green, very nice.|
|This split screen ticked all the right boxes, |
nice stance, nice colours and rusty bumpers.
|Ever wondered why the roof racks for splits|
came in two different length sizes? so did I.
Now I know.
|Again this split screen had so many period |
accessories on show.
|Baby blue and white does suit the split screen.|
|I spotted this Karmann Ghia towards the back|
of the show. It belonged to a guy from the
'Wolfsburg Weed Huggers' VW club based
just down the road form us in Amersham.
|A lovely MK2 Consul convertible in pastel|
yellow... back to the 50's.
|Lovely rust covered rat looking split screen, I |
do like the rat look.
|I also like a sign written panel, and this one|
was real nice in satin light blue.
|I know I said I like the rat look, but this is |
probably going too far.!
|So many nice vehicles on display in this very|
laid back show.
|A good variety of Beetle's, Splits, Bays. There|
was something for everyone.
|Having spent a few hours walking around the |
show it was time for bacon rolls. As usual I'm
cooking... it's a hard life eh?
|Still James seems to be enjoying my efforts.|
|The show is a stones thow from the beach, |
looking out at the English Channel towards
the Isle of Wight. It was a glorious day and
we could see the Isle of Wight in the
|The Isle of Wight passenger hovercraft |
leaves Southsea every 20 minutes or so.
The hovercraft always draws a crowd.
