|My 1969 bay window which is a Californian|
import and imported by The House of Dub.
|Steve's '70 white beetle complete with roof |
rack but minus the usual accessories he
normally carries around.
|Steve mentioned that he very rarely drives his|
bug in the rain, this could be why it's so solid
and relatively rust free.
|Phil and his son Nathan came along in their|
1975 red and white beetle. Phil had spent
most of the day polishing the car and it was
worth it, because this bug did have a nice
|From the side view of Phil's bug, you can see|
his hard work has paid off.
|This was new to the HOD club meet, it was|
owned by a guy called Kevin and he was
saying that the car was built some years ago
in Wales and was regularly used for time trials
up the sides of muddy Welsh mountains.
|It certainly has the 'time trial' look about it. |
Sitting quite high to provide ground clearance,
and minus running boards. I assume the rack
on the deck lid was for spare wheels and to
also provide weight over the rear axle to help
|Plenty of ground clearance helps the car over|
the muddy ruts and small rocks.
|A regular at the HOD club meet is Tony in|
his immaculate 1990, T25. This is one of those
vehicles that you never see with any dirt on.
|Mark came along in his stunning T5. The |
colour of this bus has to be seen to be
appreciated as the photo's do not do any
justice as to how nice it really is.
|A single colour so bright on a bus this size|
shouldn't work, but with the black tinted
windows, black wheels and black stripe, it's
just enough to make the paint scheme work.
|Liza came over from Oxfordshire, met us in|
Buckinghamshire, and then cruised with us
over to Bedfordshire to the club meet. Three
county's in one night, Phew.!
|Stuart parked up at the meet and promptly |
opened his engine hatch to let his turbo cool
down. Stuart has now re-designed his exhaust
system, to reduce back pressure and it now
consists on a piece of pipe about 8in long.
|Mystery T4 parked up. I'm not sure who owned|
this, but it was nice to see it at the club meet.
I have just been informed by Mark with the lime
green T5 that this T4 belongs to Darren, a
member of WGC VW Club, thanks Mark.
|Simon and Amanda joined our convoy en-route|
in their latest vehicle, a 1997 T4. I had a chat
with them both and had a look inside... very nice
and kited out with the camping interior.
|Amanda had the right idea, order food from |
the bar, and get it delivered to your camper.
Now that's what I call style. !
|Very clean from every angle. The U.S. style|
all red rear light lenses, the roof rack and the
BRM wheels compliment the car perfectly.
|Lovely straight bodywork finished off with |
deep gloss black paint.
|The Interior on this left hand drive notch-back |
was lovely, it looked original and was in such
|Josh arrived later in the evening in his T4, |
which I believe is up for sale.
|Elliott and Alanna came down in their stunning|
1970 cherry red beetle. This is another of
those vehicles you never ever see with any
dirt on it, quite a feat with the weather we
have in the U.K.
|Such a pretty bug and very straight, look at|
the reflection in the door of Elliott and Alanna's
bug. I do like those clear indicator lenses on
top of the wing, it's all about the small details.
|Ash came along in his newly acquired Jetta.|
You would never believe this cars paint was
so faded when Ash got the vehicle it was
a dull pink colour, but lots of polishing later
and it's gleaming deep red paint is back to
how it should be.
|A lot of hard work has gone into this to make|
it look this good, but it's certainly well worth all
|Lewis came along in his tough looking '82|
Golf. This must be a menacing sight in your
rear view mirror.
|Lewis's Golf tucked away under the trees at|
dusk. This really is a nice looking car.
|Neil came over in his '97 Golf, with the instantly|
recognisable paint scheme, orange flecks over
gloss black. I do like the paint on this car.
|Those orange wheels compliment the paint|
scheme perfectly. A really nice looking Golf.
|Ben decided to come along in his '99 Golf, |
having left his spilt screen and T5 at home.
|Ben's Golf tucked away under the tree's in the|
car park. Ben works long hours so it's always
nice to see Ben and have a catch up.
|Another Elliott, made his debut at the HOD club|
meet with his impressive '71 deep red beetle,
even more impressive is the fact that Elliott is
still a teenager.
|I believe the car belongs to Elliott even though|
he's not old enough to drive yet, so was driven
to the meet by someone else. A pretty nice
ride for your first car! Apparently it has just been
M.O.T.'d and flew through with no advisories at
|Interior is pure '70's classic bug and looking |
good. I bet Elliott can't wait until he's old enough
to drive this lovely bug on the road.
