On the second Friday of each month there was supposed to be an organised VW meeting at the 'H' Cafe in Dorchester on Thames. A few of us decided to drive over for the evening, including James, Helen, Claude, Jean, Andy and myself.
|We had arranged to meet James and Helen|
at the Burger King in Thame Service station.
My bay, Andy's blue panel split and Claude's
Grey 'Tesoro' slit screen waiting for
James and Helen to arrive.
|Very rare for Andy to join us so we we're|
privileged.! The union jack flag painted on
his roof is so distinctive.
|Jean waiting next to Claude's split, as |
James and Helen arrive it his lovely blue
award winning beetle.
|I normally lead the convoys, but as I wanted|
some 'action' shots, James led the way.
|There is something about a summer evening|
driving in a convoy to a VW meeting.
|We took the back roads to avoid any traffic, |
it also looks better in the 'driving' photo's.
|Once back in Thame we parked in the market|
car park. It certainly gave the locals something
to look at.

'Pride of ownership' trophy form the

|A nice line up in Thame town centre, some of |
the locals even came across and took some
|After a quick pint in the town we headed back|
to the original meeting place at Thame
service station and Burger King.
|Not sure how this photo came about ,|
but I blame Helen because she kept talking
about the crown's in Burger King. Myself,
Jean, Helen, James and Claude looking silly.
