|The show field was divided up into vehicle|
categories, so Stuart and I both headed to the
'RAT' section. Stuarts chequered bay, and
my bay parked up.
|Also parked in the RAT section was our good|
friend, Nathan who came along in his patina
red '69 bay, and a very nice looking split
screen single cab pick up.
|Stuart's '71 bay and my '69 bay.|
|Single cab pick up looked lovely and had |
some neat touches, like the single spot light
on the US style bumper.
|Even though it's in the RAT line up, it was in|
very good condition and looked quite solid.
It appears to have Porsche 356 wheels all
round, just like my bay.
|Nathan, who is a member of Oxdubz VW |
club, won 'best Rat' and it's easy to see why.
Well done Nathan.
|Rear view of my bay and Stuart's bay.|
|Claude and Jean went to the show in Claude's|
1961 Kombi 11 window split screen,and won
'Best Split'. Congratulations Claude.
|The guys that owned this two tone late split |
window came down from Scunthorpe in
Lincolnshire, a round trip of about 320 miles
but it was worth it as they won 'Best Interior'
Well done guys.
|Tim and his boys were part of our convoy in|
his very retro chocolate brown T25.
|It proved to be a good day for Tim who ended|
up winning the runner up award in the 'Best
T25' category. Well done Tim.
|The winner of the 'Best T25' was this lovely|
blue model owned by Tony, a member of
the House of Dub VW Club and it's not
hard to see why it won. Well done Tony.
|Spike, from the House of Dub lined up the|
company's workhorse T25 and sporting a
thermal screen cover.
|Andy and Annelise parked up in the 'Bay' |
line up. Annelise bought this California import
almost a year ago from this show, and here
it is on the road and looking so cool.
|Just a small selection of the Bay windows|
on show this year.
|Winner of 'Best Bay' went to a friend of ours,|
Joe, who's 1970 bay is always immaculate,
and features a steel sliding sunroof. Joe is
a member of the Wolfsburg Weed Huggers
VW Club. Well done Joe.
|Phil and his son Nathan attended the show|
in 'Buzz Box', Phil's '75 two tone beetle.
|Elliott arrived in his super clean 1970 cherry|
red beetle. Both Phil and Elliott are members
of The House of Dub VW Club.
|Beetles were parked in a semi circle around|
|Zoe, from The House of Dub showed off|
'Donkey' her 1967 two tone blue and white
|I do like 'intresting' vehicles like this.. I could|
spend hours just looking at all the details and
other mods the owner has made.
|The winner of 'Best Beetle' went to this lovely|
mid '60's gun metal grey oval bug. The body
is super straight and super low, it has a
narrowed front beam with what looks like
polished Fuchs wheels.
|Such a lovely looking car from every angle, it's|
easy to see why it won the trophy.
|A cool looking addition was the roof rack, so|
sleek it's almost a work of art.
|Runner up in the Beetle category was this |
gorgeous green '63 beetle owned by Karl.
Such a lovely looking car, well done Karl.
|Another member of the Oxdubz VW Club was|
Seb who came over in his '67 bug with a
unique looking body. The only paint on the
body was the red Maltese Cross.
|I heard rumours that Seb had some trouble|
getting up the lane into the show field due to
the bug being so low...
|This lovely looking black Golf won the 'Best|
Water cooled' trophy. It's owned by Neil
who is a member of The House of Dub VW
club. It features a one off paint scheme with
orange flecks over the black and it looks
awesome. Well done Neil.
|Ellie put her 1995 Golf, christened 'Nitro |
Nancy' on display in the water cooled section.
|Scott went along in his green Lupo. Scott has|
attended the Outcast VW Club's meetings in
the past but is off to Uni soon so we won't see
him for a while. Good luck at Uni Scott.
|The T4 / T5 line up was varied as you would|
|This nice T5 belongs to Darren and Leonie,|
who produce these great looking thermal
screens. They come in numerous colours
and designs for the bay, split, T25, T4 &
T5. Check out their web page at:
|Super bright lime green T4. I do like the green|
detailing on the black wheels.
|Mark, a member of The Dunstable Dubbers|
and the House of Dub VW clubs won, for a
second year running best 'T4 / T5' with his
super clean lime green T5. Well done Mark.
|Kevin, who is an Oxdubz member came along|
in his lovely two tone T4. Kevin has just
wired up his TV to his stereo speakers and
the sound is awesome in the back of his bus.
|The 'Best of the rest' category was for |
Buggies, Trekkers,Type 3's, Baja's etc.
This lovely looking buggy caught my eye.
|Another House of Dub member is Andrew who|
brought his very trick buggy to the show. I just
love Andrew's exhausts.
|This lovely bright green Karmann belonged to|
Steve a member of the Oxdubz VW Club,
I think it won the runner up award in the 'Best
|I do like the shape of the Karmann Ghia, it's|
such a timeless shape. A true design classic.
|Oxdubz VW club member, Tony came over|
in his totally immaculate square back. this
is a '68 and it's finished in deep gloss black.
Tony scooped the 'Best Other' & 'Best in
show' awards. Well done Tony.
|You can see why Tony won the award for |
'Best Other' with his super straight square
back that also has hydraulic suspension.
|If there was a trophy for 'get to the show, no|
matter what' then this guy would win. On his
way he got a tyre blow out, which is never
going to be pretty in such a lowered car.
|The guys from the Hayburner magazine were|
there giving away goodies and selling some
items of merchandise. I believe they also
gave away some prizes to the winners.

have recently imported. To check out what
