The month of March was the coldest for 50 years, with temperatures colder than November, December, January and February, and April has started off in a similar fashion so to hold a club meet in such harsh conditions could be considered somewhat optimistic. But the regulars of the Outcast club were not put off by a bit of cold weather.
|Club line up early in the evening.|
|(L to R) Claude's Golf GTI, Adrians Beetle,|
Tim's T25, James's T25, my Bay, Helen's
Beetle and Bradley's Beetle.
|A new visitor to the club meet was this lovely|
green Mexican bug. It belongs to a guy
called Bradley, a relative of Helen who owns
the yellow and white bug. Hope to see you
|Apparently this '75 bug has spent most of it's|
short life in sunny South Africa, so it's almost
rust free. I love those Porsche 356 replica
banded chrome steel wheels with domed
|Very clean and very straight, good shot of |
those banded steels, which are the same as
mine on my bay, except I don't think mine are
|Bradley's Bug alongside Helen's Bug. It's nice|
the clocks have now gone forward an hour,
giving us lighter evenings as it means I can
get better photo's of our members vehicles.
|Helen and James made the 20 mile round |
trip to the club meet in Helen's Bug.
|Helen's bug, looking really clean as usual.|
|My '69 bay parked up. I'll soon be fitting a|
birch ply headlining, which should be fun!
Watch this space to see how I get on.
|Why is it, you never get tired of looking at your|
own vehicle? I love this photo of the rear end
of my bay.
|James, who is becoming a regular at our club|
meets came in his high top T25, with the 01
decal from the 'Dukes of Hazzard' on the doors
and sporting mag wheels.
|Looking round this tonight, I noticed he had a |
propex heater system fitted and although
James said it didn't work properly as it only
blew out cold air, I'd love a propex heater for
my bay, maybe one day.
|Tim came along in his lovely straight T25. |
Recent work Tim has done includes: making
and fitting a new tailpipe from scratch and he
has now finished off the headlining.
|Tim's T25 sporting a cycle rack after a recent|
family day out with the bikes.
|Adrian made the 60 mile round trip in his cool|
looking bug, even though he ran out of petrol
less than 1/2 mile from the club meet venue..
|... but to be honest it wasn't Adrians fault as |
the bug has a faulty petrol gauge at the
moment. Glad you made it in the end mate.
|Stuart had to come in his company car, as his|
'71 bay is currently in his workshop. Stuart
is designing and making a home grown turbo
system for his bay. I'm going to try and do
a write up with photo's showing his work later...
