|A '77 late bay with a pop top that was very |
clean and straight and riding at what looked
like stock and pretty much original which is
pleasant to see and made a refreshing change.
|With it's nose in the air, just as Volkswagen|
designed the bay window. I could quite
easily have something like this, they must be
so much more practical than a lowered bus.
|Jonny came along in his '71 race inspired|
gloss white Beetle. This is such a nice looking
bug, and it has a full roll cage, full harness
seat belts on bucket seats and a monster
tachograph on the original dashboard.
|The race theme continues to the back of this |
bug with huge back wheels with huge tyres
and what looks like to be Empi air scoops
over the air vents.
|Sira came along in this Mexican Bay and it|
is the first time I have had a good look at the
new Mexican bay, apart from the grill in the
front panel, they are not as bad as what I
|This had a nice coat of paint in a nice two tone|
colour and a nice set of 5 spoke wheels.
|Andrew came to the club meet in his gorgeous|
1967 Karmann Ghia. This is a seriously clean
car finished off with an immaculate coat of
deep cherry red paint
|The classic lines of this Karmann are |
accentuated with such straight body panels.
The chrome U.S. style towel rail bumpers,
the polished wheels and the polished body
trim compliment the paint to make this KG
|This KG has a better rear end than Boyonce.|
|Julian was at the WWH monthly meet in his|
alpine race early Beetle. This is such a cool
looking car, recent additions to Julian's bug
include the twin horns mounted to the front
|This lovely blue bug with it's plush red vinyl|
interior is just about perfect, and I bet other
beetle owners inspire to this.
|Sarah and Gareth own this stunning late|
split screen, and it was gorgeous. Unusual
colour choice which works so well. The two
and three bow roof racks added a bit of extra
bling to the exterior.
|The interior of the splitty was as nice as the|
exterior, and it looked as though it had been
restored to a very high quality. This split screen
was voted in the 'top 10' vehicles at this years
V-Dub island show.
|My '69 bay window parked up in The Squirrel|
Public House car park.
|OK it looks very RAT, but I love it just the|
way it is.
|Ryan turned up in his '69 white over beige|
bay window. I do like this bay and although
it may not be a show winner, it is really clean
and solid and that is what matters.
|I do like Ryan's yellow head light lenses with |
the stone guards over them. I also like the U.S.
side marker lights.
|Luke couldn't stay away from the club meet|
in his '75 late bay finished in baby blue. I
believe this bay is the result of a recent
|Very clean and very straight, just how it should|
|Stuart and Tim followed me over to the meet|
in Stuarts 1970 beetle. This is the daily
driver for Stuart, he also has a '71 bay window
that he keeps for weekends.
|This bug has a nice stance, it looks as though|
it's doing 100mph while standing still.
|More Beetles in the overflow parking area at |
The Squirrel Pub, in Penn Street.
|A nice looking bright orange '71 beetle which|
looks pretty much stock apart from the wheels.
|Originality continues to the back of this|
|You want a super cool looking early bug?|
how about this '64 finished in a super coat
of mid grey paint with banded steel wheels.
|The single colour paint, the banded wheels|
painted white and the U.S. style all red rear
light lenses all help to make this car stand out
in any crowd. This car is a regular at the Ace
Cafe monthly air-cooled night
|Here we have another '64 beetle, and whilst|
not as shiny as the one above, it is equally
as nice for completely different reasons.
|Very RAT and very low. As Dolly Parton once|
said "it's costs a lot of money to look this
cheap" and I love it.
|Dean came along in his '67 RAT looking bug.|
This bug is really low and sits way down in the
|Dean's beetle parked up under the trees at the |
club meet. I think Dean should continue the
two white stripes up and over the body.
|Not the average Radio Flyer.. a really cool|
alternative to take to shows.
|Andy came down in his '78 Derby. These car's|
are so rare now and I believe Andy has done so
much work on this, but it all looks worthwhile.
|A truly stunning example of the sought after|
|This '74 bright yellow beetle had the silver|
decals reminiscent of the empi beetle. I'm
not sure if this is an original empi beetle or
not, but I know I do like it.
|This is such a cool looking car and the silver|
decals, chrome air intake vents and chrome
window surrounds compliment the bright
|Another '74 beetle arrived later in the evening|
but it looked completely different from the one
above, but equally as nice in it's own right.
|Very clean and very straight with a nice coat|
of grey gloss paint is all you need for a cool
|Christian turned up in his super cool looking|
21 window split screen.
|This bus has bags of patina to fulfil even the|
most patina lovers cravings. Christian was
telling me of his plans for the interior of his
bus, and if it works out how he described it
will be awesome, and I can't wait to see it.
|Christian moving his bus. The car park does|
get packed so you have to grab a space when
and where you can.
|This super bright green '68 beetle arrived|
much later in the evening. I don't know much
about this bug but it did have plenty of body
