For anyone who is new to my blog and doesn't know, on the 3rd Tuesday of each month the famous Ace Cafe (London) holds an air-cooled VW night. As the Ace is only about 45 minutes from home, a few of us from the local VW clubs normally attend.
|Lovely early beetle arrived early and got the|
best parking spot, right by the entrance door.
|This really is clean, and used to belong to|
a friend of mine, Zoe from the House of Dub.
|Those wide painted steel wheels really look |
the part against the straight grey bodywork.
|Beetle line up in front of the main windows at|
the Ace Cafe.
|A bit blurry, but this really was quite clean and|
|Tom Dunkley, a friend from another local VW|
club was there in his orange bug.
|Bus line up, a good turn out considering it was |
a cold October evening.
|Lowered single cab split screen pick up, next |
to a stock height bay window.
|Most of you will have seen this many times |
before on my blog, but it is that nice, I
can't resist taking photos of it.!
|Pair of split screens. Nice to see the owners|
dedicated to carry on driving their vehicles on
a dark and cold night.
|Lovely looking early bay in full U.S. spec.|
|Another mate, Darren from the WGC VW Club |
was also there is his bay window.
|An late bay, and a late split screen.|
|My mate Stuart drove his bay up with me.|
My bay and Stu's bay parked up under the
|Our bay windows next to the Ace Corner.|
|Couldn't resist taking this photo of my bay.|
|Parked close to Stu and I was this lovely|
|Painted steel wheels must be the thing to|
have this season... they do look good though.
|Very nice from every angle.|
|Karmann Ghia was nice.|
|Looks close to original to me, it must be|
nice driving along on a sunny day with the
|U.S. spec bumpers on this Karmann, I didn't|
notice if it was left hand drive or not.
|Parked in the corner, looking a bit sorry for |
it's self was this bug, maybe it was work in
progress?. My blog is not just about the
expensive and shiny VW's it's about all VW's
regardless of age or condition.
|'Ed' from the Wolfsburg Weed Huggers VW |
Club was at the Ace in his ratty fastback.
|Ed's fast back parked next to my bay, and|
|View of the Ace Cafe car park, full of VW's.|
|Looking along the bus line up with splits and|
bays side by side.
|This cherry red and white split screen was |
really clean. Nice colour choice.
|The owner of the cherry red and white split |
had a novel use for some used shotgun
|This crewcabT25 is a regular at the Ace, It |
rides on air suspension.
|How low is this when it's parked?|
|With the rear end 'pumped up'|
|Inside the Ace, you can get a hot drink, food,|
and alcohol. Makes for a good night!
|Anything from a sausage sandwich to a |
roast dinner, from a cup of coffee to a ice cold
beer, it's all available.
