Part 2 of my 'Lazy Day' show review continues in the show and shine field.
|Gavin from 'The Paint Shop Pro's' came over |
in his trusted Baja and not only does Gavin
spray a lot of the local VW owners vehicles
but he also made the trophies for the 'lazy
Day' show. Well done mate, they looked
great. Check out Gavin's Face book page:
|Another mate of mine, and a Wolfsburg Weed|
Hugger member, was Tom who arrived at the
show in his immaculate '66 deluxe Beetle.
|This really is a nice looking bug from every|
|The show was billed as a 'Lazy Day' and |
these guy's know just how to chill out on a
sunny Sunday afternoon.
|Nice looking split screen in a dark blue over|
a very pastel light blue.
|This red and white split screen was totally|
immaculate, keep it simple, keep it clean and
you'll stand out.
|Just love the interior, again finished to a very|
high standard. Not your usual camper
interior but a luxurious micro bus setup and
doesn't it look nice.
|Very low, very nice late spilt screen finished|
in a lovely off white colour.
|Interior of this split screen looked nice, it's |
interesting to see inside these splits and bay's
even if only to give you some idea's for your
own vehicles interior.
|A late bay, riding at what looks like stock |
height and finished in a lovely shade of blue. I
sometimes wish my bay was stock height.
(and this clean!)
|A '71 bay window in a lovely dark mint green,|
complete with 3 bow roof rack and the single
fog light,and slightly lowered. Very nice.
|Each bay window had it's own characteristics |
and this '71 was no exception. Really nice
looking early pop top bay.
|Again a single colour, some shiny bright work|
and a set of decent wheels is all you need to
|I don't normally like seeing 'Bra's' on bay|
windows, but this green and white chequered
one looked great against the green and white
paint scheme and painted steel wheels.
|Another alternate vehicle was this military|
based 'Land Rover'. If your thinking where
you would park something like this, my guess
is, anywhere you want.!
|T25 crew cab pick up in matt black with the |
'Santa Pod Raceway' livery.
|Lovely period pedal car on this RAT bug. The|
owner said he has to lengthen the toy car
because his young son loves it so much but he
had outgrown it
|This gorgeous green and white split screen|
was totally immaculate. It had a colour
matched pop top, and was full of all the right
|Very clean and very straight, it takes dedication|
to keep a bus this clean, so it was no surprise
that it not only won the 'Best Split Screen'
award, but also...
|The overall 'best of Show' award as voted for by |
the other VW entrants and the public. I have to
say it did deserve both awards. Well done.
|Gorgeous deep red early pop top bay window|
with US tail light lenses that match the paint
exactly. Deluxe trim is just enough to break
the paint up.
|Neil from 'The House of Dub' VW Club made |
the journey from Bedfordshire to the show in
his daily driver, a very low Golf while he
rebuilds his bug.
|It's nice to have what I think is an artistic photo |
on my blog entry and this reflection in Neil's
window was quite artistic I thought.'The House
of Dub' import bay window buses along with
rust free parts and accessories from the sunny
state of California.
Check out their website:
|The show and shine field was ample for|
the vehicles to spread out, however later
in the day is was a bit different as more and
more vehicles continued to arrive.
|Very nice clean beetle finished in bright red|
with red perspex windows which really suit the
|A whopping 2109cc type 4 motor crammed|
into the back of this bug, something like this
would look so good in my '69 bay.!
|Individuality is the name of the game, and this|
bug had bags of it.
|The twin front shock set up is purely for looks.|
|See through deck lid with leopard print paint,|
and not forgetting the wing extension spacers.
|I do like this bug, lovely solid green paint with|
the single yellow spot light light and headlight
|Sitting down in the weeds, with US tail light|
lenses... just about perfect.
|Nice clean square back finished in beige and|
|This was so straight and clean. Not bad for a|
40ish year old car.
|A lovely '72 beetle finished in a gorgeous|
mid blue colour. I do like those wheels, not
sure what make they are, but they suit the
single colour paint scheme perfectly.
|A nice coat of paint, a set of wheels, and |
some shiny bright work is all you need to have
a gorgeous looking ride.
|A nice looking RAT split screen, with it looks|
like a slightly narrowed front end, and sitting
down in the weeds. I'm loving that stripped
awning and of course the pair of yellow spot
|Inside the bus it wasn't RAT at all, it had a lovely |
looking Westfalia interior, that looked very cosy.
|Lovely looking gold T25 with the infamous|
'No worries' logo on the front and tinted rear
windows, Cool looking bus.
|This immaculate mid blue square back was|
'just like new'. Everything on the car was just
how it left the factory in 1970.
|This was so straight an so clean, how clean|
and shiny is the underside of that bonnet.
|Water-cooled VW's were also welcome at|
the Lazy Day, and alongside the black Golf
convertible was this awesome looking lowered
|Super bright yellow bay window. The colour|
scheme with colour coded wheels and tinted
windows really make this bay look sleek and

square back's and a Karmann Ghia parked up.
