|Looking across the Ace Cafe car park from |
the entrance door to the cafe. The quality
Volkswagen's are starting to arrive, but it's still
quite early in the evening.
|This lovely looking 1969 pop top early bay |
looked great parked up in the summer
|Another pop top early bay but this time it's a |
white over bright yellow 1971 bus. The yellow
really glowed in the evening sunshine.
|This gorgeous silver over pastel yellow 1968|
split screen looked awesome. It was flawless
in every detail and looked great parked up.
|This T25 crew cab pick up is a regular at the|
air-cooled night at the Ace, I have seen this
on many occasions and it still looks as good
now as it did the first time I saw it.
|I haven't seen this LT35 at the Ace before, OK|
it looked a bit RAT but did look like a nice solid
bus to cruise around in and something different
from the normal buses.
|This gorgeous cream over peach 21 window|
1968 split screen looked fantastic in the summer
|This really was a nice looking bus. It was riding|
at stock height which I think suits not only split
screens but also bay's.
|A good variety of buses is always guaranteed|
at the air-cooled T4 / T5 monthly meet on the
3rd Tuesday of each month at the Ace Cafe.
|This 1987 beige T25 caught my eye as it looked|
like a nice straight clean bus, I do like the T25
and could easily have one.
|Moving onto the other side of the car park is |
where the Beetle's were lined up. This bright red
1973 model looked great with it's chrome head-
light peaks. Apart from this addition this bug
looked pretty much original.
|This stunning Dove Blue (?) early beetle had|
an almost perfect paint job over incredibly
straight body panels. It goes to show you don't
need to spend out on flashy wheels etc to have
a very desirable car or bus.
|... this 1972 rust covered beetle? The red |
painted wheels with the white wall tyres (along
with the rust covered body!) help to set this
car apart from the other bug's. I did like the twin
yellow spot lights mounted to the retro style
| This red 1969 Beetle looked like a straight and|
honest car. It didn't have a flashy paint job or
bright shiny chrome wheels but it still looked
great parked up outside the Ace.
|This gorgeous Porsche 356 speedster was|
parked up and looked awesome. I'm not sure
if this was an original 356 or not, but it didn't
really matter because it so nice.
|The 356 has a gorgeous body shape whether|
it is coupe or convertible and the light grey
colour choice on this one accentuates the
flowing body lines.
|A perfect reflection in the 356's hubcap.|
|This lovely 1970's white Beetle looked great|
with it's bumpers removed and replaced with
the nerf bars. The aftermarket wheels suited
the look of this bug, as did the red vinyl
|This lowered blue Beetle looked great with it's|
white painted steel wheels. This stock looking
bug was a really nice looking Bug.
|Jonny went on to say " It had an aluminium fuel|
tank with custom mounts and of course it's my
daily driver!" I bet driving to work has never
been so enjoyable.
|I'm sure I saw this cool looking 1970 Beetle|
at the 'Just Kampers' open day back in June
this year. It has some neat touches such as the
Porsche 365 bonnet straps and the front side
|The deck lid looks seriously cool with the 356|
air vent and leather straps. This really is one
|This stunning dark blue 1969 / 1970 Karmann|
Ghia looked immaculate. The dark flawless
paint looks striking against the chrome trim
|This 1970 light blue Beetle looked great with|
the chrome head light peaks and the mesh
|Another cabriolet Beetle, this time a stunning|
gloss black 1972 model. This was another car
that looked totally original. Maybe going back
to stock is the way forward when owning a
|Another regular at the Ace Cafe is this lovely|
1964 mid grey beetle. This stock looking bug
(apart from the banded steel wheels) always
|This gorgeous olive green T3 fastback was|
totally immaculate. The body was so straight
and covered in a flawless coat of paint.
|The type 3 fastback's were produced from|
1965 - 1973. The painted steel wheels look
like a perfect choice to compliment the car.
|Another mate of mine Tom came along a bit|
later in the evening in his early 1960's Beetle.
This bug is a bit RAT look with the odd scuff
here and there, but it's still a lovely old bug.
|Tom's Porsche 356 nipple style hub caps make|
all the difference to the appearance of Tom's
|This awesome looking 1967 beach buggy in|
bright yellow looked great parked up. The colour
choice suits this car perfectly as do the wheels.
|I did like the vertical exhausts and the clear |
lenses on the tear drop tail lights.
