This months Outcast VW Club monthly meeting was an unusually quiet affair mainly due I think to the recent very hot spell, as I guess most people were spending lazy summer evenings with their families and maybe a B.B.Q, and also the fact that The House of Dub club meet was the previous night to our meet. Never the less the variety of vehicles was, as always diverse and the company first class.
|As I forgot to take any pictures of my bay at|
the House of Dub club meet, and therefore
couldn't post any on my last blog entry, I
thought I'd start by posting some pictures of
my '69 bay.
|I was first to arrive which gave me time to take|
some photo's, my bay basking in the hot

well and will soon be all the same colour, with

|James came down in his high top T25, which|
he recently travelled to Scotland in. I think
James said it was something like a 6 or 7 hour
journey up and slightly longer due to traffic
coming back, not bad for around trip of
approximately 600 miles.
|Apart from a puncture, which can happen to|
any of us, the bus performed faultless.
|Stuart raced his son Tim, to the club meet. |
Tim was on his BMX against a 1671 turbo
charged bay. Even though Tim could use
shortcuts down alleyways and cut corners
I think you can work out who arrived at the
|Stuart only lives about a mile from the club |
meet, but he still had to open his engine bay
to let the turbo cool down.

system was designed and built by Stuart in
|Claude popped down in his 1960 kombi split|
screen bus with a 1671cc motor with a Scat
|Claude does some serious mileage in his split|
with several trips to Europe each year.
|Adrian ventured into Buckinghamshire from|
the neighbouring county of Oxfordshire. He
left his '78 bay window Fire Bus at home and
came down in his '69 bug.
|I do like Adrian's beetle, OK it's not a show|
winner, but neither is my bus and it always
seems to get him over to our club meets...
well almost always.!
|Neat skull and cross bones decal on Adrian's |
quarter light window.
|Elliott owns this stunning 1970 beetle. Elliott|
is a member of the House of Dub VW Club,
but often visits our club meets, and he's more
than welcome to do so.
|The deep cherry red gloss paint is always so |
clean and shiny it looks as though the paint is
still wet. This car is a credit to you mate.
|Dave and Angela came down in Dave's '67|
split screen. This is such a nice looking split
in white over blue.
|I'm not sure what make Dave's wheels are, |
but I do know that I like them. Not the usual
choice of wheels for a split screen, but they
do make the bus stand out.
|Matthew came along in his '69 bay window.|
This bus, like mine is a Californian import and
they tend to be more solid than UK or European
|Matthew does like his polishing rag and it |
shows, all that hard work has certainly paid
off and his bay is looking great.
