Wolfsburg Weed Huggers 'Lazy Day' 2013 (part 1 of 2)

On Sunday 16th June, The Wolfsburg Weed Huggers VW club, based in Penn Street, nr Amersham in Bucks held their 2nd annual show. The event was held just down the road at the Black Horse Pub, Aylesbury Road in Great Missenden. The show included a 'Show and Shine' area with club trophies and prizes from 'Air Cooled Accessories, a free autojumble, some big raffle prizes, licensed bar and BBQ provided by The Black Horse pub, a VW quiz, free kids activities sponsored by Deimos Air Cooled, and a kids fancy dress. All that was needed was some good weather but the forecast was for rain all day on Sunday... however the forecast was wrong and the sun shone for most of the day.

I arranged to meet a couple of mates in the
usual meeting place so we could cruise over
to the show together. Phil's red bug, Steve's
white bug, and my bay.

This gorgeous deep red Karmann Ghia is
owned by one of the Wolsburg Weed Hugger's
members. I have seen this car numerous times
and it looks better every time I see it. 

Christian Peck, the main man at the Wolfsburg
Weed Huggers VW club own's this lovely 23
window split screen with patina paint.

This very trick Bug won the trophy for best
Beetle. It has so many neat touches it would
be hard to name them all. Home made front
splitter in carbon fibre, and neat bonnet scoop.

Suicide doors, with I think Audi TT door
latches, full roll cage, bucket seats...

Oh and not to forget the type 4 motor that is
something silly like a 2.8litre and pushing well
over 200 bhp.

Next to the grey bug was this unassuming
orange beetle...

with yet another type 4 motor. This one is not
quite as wild as the previous one, but I bet it
still doesn't hang around.

This alpine rally style beetle has been on my
blog several times before, but that's fine I do
like this car. It's owned by another member
from the Wolfsburg Weed Huggers VW Club.

Headlight grille's and large spot lights make
the front end look so nice.

Classic shape of the Karmann Ghia
finished in bright red with white steel wheels
with black centres.

Another member of the Wolfsburg club, and a
good mate of mine Joe, was there is his lovely
early bay.

Light blue Fastback was very clean and
straight. It looked almost original to me.

Phil Carr and his son Nathan, came over in
their late beetle named 'Buzz Box' Nice to
see you both, hope you had a good time and
see you soon at the next HOD meet.

Steve and his good wife came over in Steve's
beetle. Glad you could both make it, hope you
had a good time. See you at the next 'Outcast
VW Club' meet.

Not sure how this got into the show field being
this low..!

Beetle line up early in the day.

This orange beetle with a roof chop again has
been featured on my blog several times, but
again I don't mind. This really is a nice looking

This pastel yellow beetle didn't have any
trick bits, or flashy paint scheme but something
about caught my eye.

A neat touch, was the chequered interior of
the headlight.

This RAT looking beetle has been on my blog
several times before. I normally see this bug
at The Ace Cafe, London.

RAT looking rear end with a quick release
rear apron.

Dave and Angela, both from my hometown
of Aylesbury were there in their blue and
white split screen. Nice to see you both, have
a great time in China.

Late bay's and early bay's mixed it up in the
bay window line up.

Nice early bay in an unusual colour mix that
actually go quite well together.

Looks like a US import with the front and rear
marker lights. Again this was owned by a
Wolfsburg Weed hugger member.

Lovely blue and white late bay with pop top.
This was finished to a very high standard.

Interior was finished to an equally high

The blue and white colour scheme continued
into the cab area.

More of the bay window line up, each bay had
it's own unique style.

My '69 bay enjoying the 'lazy day' 2013 show.

A pastel blue and white late bay, very clean
and very straight, such a nice looking bus.

This gorgeous T25 belongs to Tony, another
mate of mine. This twin slider is immaculate,
and looks just right. Loving those yellow

This is one of the cleanest T25's around. Tony
has put a lot of work into his ride, and it shows.

Most Karmann owners like their cars to be
painted and shiny, the owner this of this one
obvioulsy doesn't, and I don't blame him,
it looks great as it is.

Very RAT looking with a super narrow front
end add to it's appeal.

Part 2 of my show report to follow in a week
or so.
