|A few of the outcast members at our usual|
meeting place ready for the cruise over to
The House of Dub. The red beetle belongs
to Elliott, who is a H.O.D. member, but came
to Aylesbury just to join the cruise back to
the House of Dub.!
|Access to the Globe Inn is via a small single|
track road, which goes over the Grand Union
canel and then you have to drive down the
towpath.. it's not for the faint hearted.
|Kevin was part of our convoy in his green|
and cream T4. This is such a nice looking
|This is ideal for Kevin and his family to enjoy|
the odd day out here and there and even if
they choose to stay over somewhere.
|Kevin proudly displays the HOD logo in his|
|Elliott was also part of our convoy in his super|
clean cherry red beetle. This is one of those
cars that always looks so clean.
|Great reflections in the deep gloss paint.|
|A new addition was this single yellow spot|
light. This really does set the front off of his
1970 beetle nicely.
|Steve and Pauline came over to the HOD for|
the first time in their surfer / skater style bug.
Hope you both enjoyed your first visit to the
club meet, and hopefully we'll see you both
|Loving the surfboards on the roofrack. I'd|
like something like that for my bus.
|Richard was at the meeting quite early in his|
very low, bright red Polo.
|This is so low, it must be quite a challenge|
to get down the single track road to the pub.
|Dan and Simon came along in their equally|
|This early rat looking rag top beetle belongs |
to Steve, and I think I'm right in saying that is
was once the cover car on a VW mag. I just
love those semaphore indicators.
|OK, it's a bit ratty looking but that, I think, just|
add's to its cool look.
|Spike came along in the House of Dub work-|
horse vehicle, an army green VW passat which
is of course, lowered.
|Andrew came along in his super cool buggy,|
which is very loud.
|If you look closley at the roll bar you can see|
a bracket for a video camera. Andrew made
a short video of his journey to the club meet.
Check out Andrews mini road trip on you tube:
|Zoe was there of course in 'Donkey' her '67|
two tone beetle.
|Such a lovely looking car. Zoe was saying|
she was thinking of giving 'Donkey' a full
resto. I can understand why, so it will last
another 46 years, but it just looks so cool
as it is.
|Small hand painted touches like this make |
this car, what it is.
|A regular at the club meets now is Phil and|
his son, Nathan. They came in Phil's lovely
looking beetle named 'Buzz Box'
|Nice photo showing how straight Phil's bug|
really is. This also has a factory fitted steel
|A new face to the meet was Alan, in his super|
cool looking early bug. I just love the stance of
|I like the colour, the US style bumpers, the|
steel wheels.. in fact I like everything about this
|I believe this bug requires a little work, but |
what '66 bug doesn't?
|Another new face to the club meet was Simone|
who came in her brilliant white '72 beetle.
|Another vehicle that needs some TLC from |
Spike at the H.o.D but it was great to see
Simone and her beetle named 'Bea' at the
club meet. Hopefully see you there again.
|Yet more new faces at the club were Deborah |
and Brendan (AKA the Ampthill mob) who
after 5 years of putting it off, finally decided
to join us. So glad you did guy's.
|Deborah's and Bendans '78 late bay in a sort|
of sand colour with white top, with pop top and
5 spoke empi wheels.. very nice.
|Mark left his bay at home and came down in|
his Golf convertible, I don't blame him, it's not
often we get the sun so you have to make the
most of it when we do.!
|Very clean, straight and tidy, what more|
could you want.
|It was definatley beetle night at the House of|
Dub club meet this month.
|A very good variety of vehicles made it such|
a good night, along with the owners of course.
|Ash came along later in the evening in his red|
T4. It was nice to see Ash who can't always
make it to the club meetings.
|Nice shiny front wing Ash, just the rest of the|
body to go now.! (only joking mate)
|Yet more new faces at the club, this time it|
was John who came in his white T4. I had
a quick chat to John who said he was just in
the progress of prepping the body for a
re-spray. Hopefully next month it'll look
|Preperation is the name of the game, the |
better the prep work, the better the paint
|John brought his mate Matt along, in his T4.|
Another work in progress vehicle, with more
prepping of the bodywork, but it's got to
look worse before it looks better. Hope to see
you both again at the HOD and the Outcast
|Matt has done a lot of body prepping on his|
T4, which I'm sure will look great once it's
