|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|
|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
|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|
|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 |
|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|
|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.
