|This gorgeous 1966 split screen bus was the|
first vehicle you saw as you entered the show
room. I believe this very unique split was built
at Larry's workshop for Sony to be used as a
|Very trick side and roof opening make this |
bus very unique. The design and build quality
of this bus was amazing
|This bus was so nice, the dark grey reflection|
from that super straight body was close to
perfection. The narrowed front beam, the twin
roof racks and the cosmic wheels just helped to
make this split screen so desirable.
|A lovely 1972 MK1 GP buggy finished in a |
very retro gold colour. This buggy has had a
very comprehensive restoration where every
part was either painted, polished or chromed.
|A lovely 1972 cal look Beetle that has had a|
full body off restoration. As you would expect
this Bug was immaculate and has even been
on display inside at the Volksworld Show.
|This gorgeous Beetle had some neat touches|
such as the chrome Empi vent trim which are
as rare as, well... chrome Empi vent trim.!
|This gorgeous car has been severely lowered|
and now runs on 5" narrowed beam with chrome
5 spoke wheels. The paintwork is original which
has just been polished. You can check out the

|This 181 looked great from every angle, I did|
like those huge off road tyres. The Trekker
utilises a type 1 Karmann Ghia floor pan, and
the rear swing axle suspension from the
(then) discontinued split screen transporter.
|This lovely clean and straight 1970 Karmann|
Ghia looked stunning under the show room
lights. This KG has the semi-automatic gear
box that was only available from 1968 onwards.
|The Karmann Ghia really is a classic in the |
Volkswagen family and this gorgeous blue
Ghia attracted a lot of admiring looks all
|My good friend and fellow Outcast VW Club|
member Claude, was invited to take his very
clean and shiny 1960 split screen kombi down
to display inside the dealership showroom.
|The new dealership showroom was all white|
and looked clinically clean, which in a way
made all the classic air cooled VW's look
even better as there was nothing to distract
the eye of the admiring public and customers.
|The Karmann Ghia and Claude's Kombi. The|
KG belongs to a guy called Sav, who is a long
time friend of Andrew who came down on the
Saturday in his beach buggy.
|My '69 bay parked outside the dealership as|
she isn't clean and shiny enough to get a spot
inside,but that's OK because she was parked
right next to the road, enticing the public into
|Another photo of 'Fiona' parked up right outside|
the entrance doors to the Lancaster dealership.
My bay was the first classic air cooled vehicle
the general public saw as they entered the
|Outcast VW Club member Sam, popped over|
on the Friday in his 1969 off road Beetle. When
I say Sam popped over, I do mean popped over,
he was staying at his Dad's place which is
just opposite the showroom.!
|This 1973 crossover bay window looked simply|
stunning in it's silver over purple paint. This is
another of Larry's customers vehicles.
|This bay really is a show bus, the body and|
paint were immaculate. The interior with the
satellite TV was gorgeous, in fact everything
on this bus was 'just right'.
|On the Saturday Andrew came over in his |
lovely metallic purple beach buggy. Andrew
is a member of The House of Dub VW Club.
|Andrew is just about to leave, the sun is going|
down and the temperature is dropping fast.
You have to be a special sort of person to drive
a beach buggy in the U.K. in November, and I
am definitely not that type of person.
|Kevin and hid family came along in their 1990|
Mk2 GTI Golf. As they pulled up in their totally
immaculate classic they were asked by Lancaster
VW if they would like to display their car in front
of the showroom.
