|The variety, the finish and the ride height of the |
vehicles was immense. Here two very low split
screen's and parked up next to a high riding
bay window. This show really does have some-
thing for everyone, no matter what your into.
|I'm sure this is a Jurgen Autovilla in a lovely |
olive green and white. I think I'm right in saying
that this is the bus that Karmann copied to
create the Karmann Gypsy. Whether I'm right
or wrong the main thing is, this is gorgeous.
|This early bay is the same colour as my 1969 |
bay and I loved the hand painted flowers that
covered this bus. A very unique bus that has
a '60's flower power feel to it. I loved it.
|A lovey pair of split screen single cab pick ups|
parked together on Maderia Drive. These two
look similar at first glance but are so different
when you look closely.
|This 1963 split screen has the high top body|
and I just love these. You don't see too many
of these around, but I think they are gorgeous.
This one looks as though it may have had a new
front clip at some point, that has now gone rusty.
|This 1971 bay was so nice. With it's single|
colour paint, slightly lowered stance and with
a Paris sun roof and finished off with the
deluxe body and bumper trim, this bus looks
just about perfect.
|This pastel blue early Bug looked awesome, I|
think it must have been riding on air suspension
to be this low when parked up, either that or
the owner is very brave.
|I do like to see ex-emergency service buses,|
I'm not sure if this early split screen is actually
an ex-services bus but it did look good in it's
Fire bus livery. The Fire signage on the doors
is a nice touch.
|A lovely 1968 type 3 squareback finished off in|
a coat of lovely gloss black paint. This type 3
was was super straight and had been lowered.
The black paint is only broken up by the chrome
trim, headlight surrounds, bumpers etc.
|This Beetle caught my eye,with it's simplicity|
look. A modern colour green paint scheme,
lowered slightly and running on chromed
wheels is sometimes all you need to make
your car stand out. This Bug was really nice.
|This 1967 deluxe split screen looked great with|
it's turret pop top. That colour suits this 'old'
looking bus so well. It just goes to show you
don't always need flashy paint or over the top
wheels to create a really nice looking bus.
|Talking of nice looking buses, how about this|
early split. I just love the colour combination
on this bus and the colour matching wheels,
this bus blends into the beach perfectly. Once
again it's nothing fancy, just a gorgeous looking
|This 1967 split screen was another bus that I|
just loved the look of. The single colour body
with colour matched wheels looked just right.
The turret pop top is another feature that for
me, made this bus stand out from the others.
|This white over bright red 'Jet Rocket' late split|
screen panel van stood out. A nice touch is
the white under the wheel arches to match the
white painted wheels and bumpers.
|This early spit screen panel van was one of the|
many European visitors to the Breeze, probably
from Belgium or France. This van had lovely a
straight body in signal red with black gloss painted
bumpers and running on Porsche wheels.
|A selection of Beetle's parked up on Maderia|
Drive. All ages, all styles and all colours to suit
every ones taste. I recognise that RAT looking
Bug at the far end, he joined our queue as we
waited to get onto the seafront at Brighton.
|A 1968 Beetle parked up and looking great. A|
single cream colour, a super straight body with
a nice set of BRM wheels is all you need to get
noticed amongst the hundreds of other Bugs at
the Brighton Breeze.
|A close up of those amazing wheels on this |
|This 1963 split screen panel van was totally|
immaculate. I do like panel van's and this one
really was something special. A super straight
body finished off in a single colour with twin
yellow spot lights, this just looks absolutely
|The S.S.V.C. organised the Breeze and split|
screen owners from all over the U.K and even
Europe attended the event. So many split
screens came along, but each one was so
different in appearance.
|This early split screen appealed to me with it's|
old looking colour paint scheme, and with the
deluxe trim. The colour coded bumpers was a
nice touch as were the twin spot lights and twin
|What was I saying about walking a few paces|
and seeing something else, this early bay panel
van was beautiful. Lowered with a narrowed
beam, and with a single off white colour scheme
this van looked awesome.
|This late split screen had buckets full of patina|
paint. This weather beaten bus looked so cool
parked up amongst other shiny painted buses.
|Both split screens, one an early model and the|
other a late model. One painted and one with
patina, but both absolutely gorgeous.
|This 1967 Beetle looked gorgeous in its dark|
plum and black colour. The quality paint finish
gives off a near perfect reflection. The stance
of this Bug, with it's nose in the weeds looks
|This really is a nice looking car, the amazing |
paint finish enhances the overall look, as does
the bright chrome blade bumpers.
|This 1971 mango coloured Beetle was super |
clean and super straight. The colour choice
suits the Bug perfectly, as do the early front
wings and the towel rail bumper. I did like those
chrome wheels with the chrome hub caps.
|It's all about the detailing, and this Bug had a|
neat chequered design on the inside of the
