|We all survived the 20 mile or so trip with out|
any drama's, so the first thing I decided to
was to get some photo's. I think this is Dean's
black '67 bug and it looked a bit RAT, and
that's fine by me!
|The photo doesn't show the true camber of|
the rear wheels but being so low as well it
looked just right.
|Outcast member Dave took his '67 white over|
blue split screen. This really is a nice bus,
with no expense spared.
|Super cool looking split screen. Dave has |
fitted a discreet 3rd brake light above his number
plate which really makes a difference when
following him. Something to think about I think.
|Dave's daughter Louise and Dave's wife|
Angela went along in Louise's beige bug,
named Brum... I didn't ask how the bug got
|'Brum' the '74 bug. Rear fender in grey primer|
due to recently having paid a visit to the
Oil Droppers workshop for some work.
|Princess Fiona under the pub lights.|
|My '69 bay looking stunning as ever. Just wish |
I had a propex heater because the heating
didn't really work due to the cold evening.
|Matthew came along in his '69 white over|
|This really is a nice looking bay.|
|Stuart, Tim and Sean arrived shortly after|
us in Stuart's distinctive '71 bay.
|Stuart is owner of the Oil Droppers workshop|
and with his turbo'd bay, and even with a
detour to pick up Sean I knew he wouldn't
be far behind us.
|This photo is a bit dark, but it's the Outcast|
VW Club bay line up outside the Squirrel Pub.
|Andrew came along in his super clean '67|
cherry red Karmann. This really is a super
straight, super clean Ghia.
|I do hate the dark nights as it play havoc with|
my little camera in trying to get the colour of
the vehicles. Lovey deep reflection on the
|Another shot of Andrew's Ghia.. the colour|
is still bad but look how straight the body is.
|Only one way to get a good colour shot...|
get a close up picture.!
|Nick is the owner of this lovely split screen |
panel van in what looks like Dove Blue.
|Gorgeous or what..? and the right colour, in|
|Such a lovely looking spilt screen.|
|Iconic look of the early split screen...|
|Peter ( I think) came along in his deep red|
|Another super straight, super clean and yet|
another '67 model.
|Classic shape of the Ghia rear end with the |
US towel rail bumpers.
|Kez and Becky, also members of the Outcast|
VW Club came along in Kez's lovely '79 late
|This is a lovely bus, in a lovely colour. Kez|
was saying she has a few trips planned for
later in the year... hope all goes well Kez.
|I noticed this little character in the windscreen|
on Kez's bay. Quite a good resemblance I
thought.!! (Only joking Kez.)
|Jonny came along in his '72 bug which has|
been included on my blogs before. I just love
those twin yellow spot lights.
|Very RAT, very cool...|
|Jonny's bug has plenty of character and|
|Andrew is the owner of this unusual bug. it's |
certainly distinctive with that front end.
|Same goes for the rear end of this '70 bug.|
|Mark Chapman came along in his bright|
lilac '72 Beetle. This was quite a nice colour
in the flesh...
|A bit RAT looking here and there but I think|
that just adds to it's character.
|Ryan owns this lovely '69 white over beige |
bay turned up later in the evening. I love
those yellow head light lenses and the single
yellow spot light.
|I do like the odd sticker on a bay side window,|
and this bus had plenty of stickers to keep
amused for a while.
|Luke is the owner of this white over pastel blue |
late bay who also arrived later in the evening,
and it looked very clean and tidy.
|The clear rear light lenses on this '75 late bay|
|Nice photo of a pair of bay's parked up at the|
|Julian came along in his early beetle. This is|
another vehicle that has featured in my blog
before, and with it looking this good, no doubt
it'll feature again and again.
|By now you my have realised I have a liking |
for yellow spot lights and yellow headlight
lenses... well how about this combo, just
about perfect I think.
|Julian's bug looks so good from any angle.|
|But it especially looks good from behind. I can't|
think of anything that would make the look of
this bug look any better.
