The final instalment of the Brighton Breeze
2012, continues on Maderia Drive and the
show and shine.
|Lovely early panel barn door.|
|So many split screens, yet every one different|
from the last.
|Nice line up in front of the arches.|
|The Beetle bonnet had a unique paint job.|
|This was really nice, loved the colour choice.|
|Traders under the arches were selling almost|
anything you could think of.
|Very rough looking early split panel... love it.|
|With pastel paint, narrowed beam,and having |
been lowered this split screen looked just right.
|This 1960's Porsche 356 was stunning, and |
looked right at home at a VW show.
|How good does this Porsche look?|
|Why can't they make cars as good looking|
as this now-a-days?
|This beetle roadster was trick.|
|Unusual wheels, but they suit the style of this|
rag top bug perfectly.
|Just to prove you were at the Breeze..|
|Looking East along Maderia Drive.|
|Looking West, the show and shine line up|
goes as far down as the Pier.
|A new addition to Brighton this year is the |
'Brighton Eye' A perfect photo place, so Jean
and I decided to go up...
|Looking down at the West Pier (Brighton Pier)|
as it stretches out into the English Channel.
|View from the top of the eye. Looking east |
along the 1.5 miles that is Maderia Drive, there
was in excess of 850 vehicles at this years
Breeze, very impressive.!
|Looking back towards Brighton town centre, |
and the Pier.
|Nice photo showing buses parked everywhere.|
|The start of Maderia Drive.|
|Rather than take the B-B-Q and cook|
food as we normally do at a weekend show,
it has become a tradition now just to call
the local pizza place and get our dinner
delivered to the Racecourse.
|Overnight camping at Brighton Racecourse, is|
always a good night and usually packed. Matt
and Caroline '69 bay in the morning sunshine.
|This is our group, with Spike and Zoe's|
red patina bay, Alden's red / black bay, my bay
and Claude and Jean's split screen.
|Claude's split with Vince and Maria's T4.|
|On my way to get breakfast, I decided to take|
more photo's. Lovely looking turquoise split.
|High and shiny, lowered and ratty.|
|Crew cab split screen pick up. Novel use of a |
drive away awning. I think there were people
sleeping in the pick up bed.
|Another crew cab split.|
|Single cab slit screen. Nothing flash or fancy,|
just a good looking pick up.
|Cool looking bug, parked up with some early|
|Nothing better than a sign written panel van.|
|Two tone green split, with colour coded|
|This guy came all the from the Netherlands. |
An army based late bay crew cab pick up.
|Red and white late split.|
|Awesome looking Baja..|
|Lovely clean and straight early bay.|
|Tatty lowered barn door... perfect.|
|1960's Porsche 901. Totally original.|
|Lovey looking Porsche classic.|
|Early bay in the morning sunshine.|
|It can get a bit camped in a bay or split, I bet|
this is luxury.
|Buses parked up at the race course.|
|If you like some bling, check out the wheels|
on this early split.
|This is the split screen we spotted at the |
services en-route to Brighton.
So that was the Brighton Breeze 2012, and
pretty much the VW season for this year in
