The 'House of Dub' (H.O.D.) is a Volkswagen club based between Milton Keynes and Leighton Buzzard. This free club, with no membership hold a monthly club meet at 'The Boot' public house in Soulbury, Buckinghamshire, LU7 0BT from 7.00pm on the first Monday of each month. Everyone is welcome no matter what type of vee dub they drive, both air and water cooled are welcome. The Boot is a very friendly pub serving great food and beer and is also child friendly with a play area in rear garden. The H.O.D. club meet is only 10 miles from my hometown of Aylesbury, so it would be rude of me not to attend. I also think it's good for local VW club members to attend other local VW clubs monthly meet nights as and when they can just to show their support.

|I was the first to arrive at The Boot Public House.|
My 1969 microbus looks kind of lonely parked
up in the car park all alone. But it wasn't long
before more H.O.D. members arrived.
|Richard is a new member that I had not met|
before, and he owns this lovely '69 Westfalia,
it's a California import that Richard has owned
for a few years now.
|This is a very nice and clean Westy, and still|
using the all red U.S style rear light lenses.
|Darren came along to the club meet in his lovely|
silver T5. This really is a nice looking bus.
Darren owns and runs a company making thermal
screens for VW buses. Check out the FB page here:

these if I didn't have my '69.. and if I had a lot of

Josh's T4 is very distinctive with it's rusty RAT
|Ben has been quite poorly recently but he still|
managed to come down in his super clean T5.
This bus is up for sale, and if I had the asking
price I'd be there. This bus has many mods
including a full camping interior.
|Such a nice looking bus with cool body kit. I do|
like the stark contrast between the brilliant white
body and the black windows.
|I also liked Ben's choice of wheels with the low|

looks nice under the spotlight in the pub car park,
but in daylight on a a sunny day it looks awesome.

starting to think I left the H.O.D club meet too
