Wolfsburg Weed Huggers monthly meet.

The Wolfsburg Weed Huggers VW club is based in Penn Street, near Amersham, Bucks and their monthly club meet is held at the Squirrel Pub in Penn Street on the last Wednesday of each month. A few of the 'Outcast' VW club members decided to have a mini cruise over to their club meet to show our support. In our convoy we had 3 bay window's, a split screen and a beetle, not bad considering it was a cold and dark weekday evening.

I met Matthew at Stuarts house. Matt's
shiny blue bay next to my not so shiny
green bay. We had arranged to meet Dave
and Angela, and their daughter Louise en-
route to the meet. Stuart would then take a
diversion to meet Sean and then meet us
at the pub later.

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
the name.

'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
blue bay.

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
engine lid.

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
my opinion.

Such a lovely looking spilt screen.

Iconic look of the early split screen...

Peter ( I think) came along in his deep red
Karmann Ghia.

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
many accessories.

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
look good.

Nice photo of a pair of bay's parked up at the
club meet.

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.

This way my view of the convoy as the
Outcast members headed back to Aylesbury
after the meet. Dave was leading in his split
 followed by Louise in her bug, and then Kez
and Becky in her bay. Matt and Stu followed
closely behind me.

That was the February Wolfsburg Weed
Huggers monthly meet. Overall a good
evening with a good turn out of VW's.
The club meets will only get bigger and
bigger and the Spring / Summer arrive,
which is goon news for everyone.
