The 3rd and final instalment review of this year's Volksworld show continues in the show halls where the best vehicles are on show. The variety of vehicles on show was immense and the standard, as you would expect was incredible.
|This pair of Karmann Ghia's were the first |
display on show as you entered the 'Surrey'
hall, they set the standard of show cars and
a good sign of things to follow.
|The interior of the grey Karmann was totally|
immaculate and just as it came out the factory.
|I didn't find out much about this super clean|
beetle, but it had some race pedigree as the
roll cage and false front lights show. I did like
|Talking of super clean beetles, how about this|
for a clean and tidy piece of work. This late
bug was just as immaculate under the bonnet as
it was on the outside.
|A lovely early split oval bug with patina to die|
|and a very early supercharged engine.|
|Another split oval beetle with a similar|
|Quite an impressive stand with plenty of|
|I just loved this alpine rally spec beetle.|
|Talking of beetle's, how about the interior of |
this bug. How nice is this? the shine on the
paint work isn't bad either.
|On display in the main entrance there were|
2 beetles on display. This one was a barn
find or a 'work in progress' bug.
The motor and wheels were totally to show
standard, however the body needed some work.
|Well OK, the body needs quite a lot of work.|
|What amazed me was, how did they move it|
into the reception with it looking that fragile?
|The 2nd beetle was this gorgeous oval bug|
with a lovely patina look and sexy yellow head
|The patina continued all over the roof and|
across the tops of the wings. I love those
huge tyres that fill the arches so well.
|It's almost a tradition now, but every|
year I have to get the Volksworld
girls photo. This pair of beauties
were willing to pose for me.
|Another early beetle of show standard and |
very low. I do like the safari front screen and
pop out rear windows.
|This super wide, bright orange beach buggy|
was on show. Look how wide those rear tyres
are, and the size of the whale tail spoiler.
|From the front you could see the buggy |
resemblance.. just. It did have a very nice
flame paint job though.
|The design hasn't changed much over the |
years, they still feature a fibreglass uni body
on a shortened beetle floor pan.
|The interior of this split screen was amazing,|
it's almost too nice to be practicable but I
suppose if you have an interior you don't think
|This sliver blue early beetle was gorgeous,|
sitting low and those Porsche 356 headlight
grills compliment the paint work perfectly.
|It's amazing what you can do with a vehicle|
originally designed for military use. This 181
Trekker looked awesome in metallic green
and gloss black.
|The interior, although still sparse was finished|
to a very high standard, not sure how comfy
those seats would be though.
|How about this for a power plant. It's a super|
charged Essex V6 in the back of a beetle.
|Another Tempo Matador, this time in gleaming|
white with dark green wings.
|How about this for an un-usual split screen.|
The lower half of the body is stock width but
the top half has been narrowed then both halfs
have been welded together. With the roof chop
as well it is very different and I like it.
|You can see just how narrow the body is from|
these next couple of interior pictures.
|Just enough room for a single seat in the cab.|
The amount of work that must have gone into
this creation must have ben huge.
|From the rear once again you can see just how|
much work has gone into this bus. I love how
the rear wings now look like bolt on fenders.
|The US import early bay was so nice. I do like|
green and white buses and this one also had
a pop top.
|A nice shiny painted late bay with plenty of|
period accessories. This bay was immaculate
inside and out.
|There is something about the simplicity and |
clean lines of an early split screen that is
so appealing. This mint green and white one
was gorgeous and flawless.
|I'm not normally keen of painted shiny bay's,|
which is just as well considering the state of
my bay, however this green and white one
looked fantastic. It was totally immaculate.
|A random photo early in the day showing the|
vehicles on display in one of the halls.
|A Karmann Ghia overdose outside around|
the winners enclosure. This may well have
been part of the 'Cool Flo' display.
|This split oval came over from Europe and it|
looked awesome. I love the RAT look and this
bug had it in abundance.
|Sitting low with plenty of patina and a few|
dented panels it looked great. I don't know
what wheels they are but they are very nice.
|I did like the WW2 headlight covers.|
