|This gorgeous olive green oval window beetle|
caught my eye, I do like the oval bugs and this
one looked like a real early one. I did like that
big red spot light on the roof rack.
|A super clean 1971 early bay finished in a |
lovely coat of what looks like Kansas Beige
although I could be wrong!, whatever the
name of the colour is, it looked great. The
chrome 5 spoke wheels added some bling.
|This cool looking 1977 late bay looked great|
with those retro stripes and the chocolate
coloured body. This bay had an unusual pop
top which looked great.
|OK, it's not a Volkswagen but when you come|
across a totally original 1963 Austin Cooper S
you just have to take some photo's. This light
blue Cooper was immaculate.
|This really is a gorgeous example of the |
classic Austin, that must have had a nut and
bolt restoration as it really was like new.
|I did like this teal coloured 1971 early bay and|
the concertina pop top with the clear panels.
Again a very nice bay without being too flashy.
|This beefed up 1966 Volvo Amazon looked|
awesome with it's flared arches and unique
|I did like this old Volvo, I'm not sure if this was |
used for 1/4 mile racing or circuit racing, but it
doesn't really matter when you have such a
cool looking car.
|Another vehicle from 1966 was this split screen|
kombi. This bus had some serious patina in
the dark red / maroon paint. This bus rides at
close to stock height with painted steel wheels,
with white wall tyres, which just looks so good.
|If you like your buses with a bit more RAT look|
then this 1964 splitty should fulfil your cravings.
What you see is what you get, definitely there
is nothing hidden on this lovely bus.
|Another ratty 1964 split screen kombi this time|
in grey primer and equally as nice.
|Looking across into the club camping area at|
Santa Pod Raceway home of Bug Jam 29.
|Looking across into the general camping area,|
these photo's really do not justify just how busy
and how many people were actually at the show.
|At Bug Jam it's all about Volkswagen's new or|
old as this 1970 early bay and 2003 new beetle
prove parked up together.
|I spotted this lovely early bay cruising around |
the site, this panel van was for sale so I think
the owner was just spreading the word.
|This gorgeous jet black 1977 181 Trekker was|
stunning. It had been seriously lowered and had
a nice set of aftermarket wheels. The yellow
headlight lenses add some colour to the front.
|This gorgeous bright orange 1969 / 70 early |
bay was up for sale. This bus really was
immaculate inside and out and had an asking
price of £18,000 ($28,000 approx).
|The interior was just as nice and detailed as |
the exterior. This really was a nice bus.
|In the action arena, Santa Pod's own resident|
monster truck Podzilla was showing off it's
car crushing abilities. The organisers had
organised a duel between Podzilla and
another monster truck..
|.. called Swamp Thing. This monster truck is |
the 4 time British Champion and it was clear
to see why, the amount of 'air' this truck got
|The 'Cool Flo' guys were at Bug Jam in their|
lovely blue over white 1970 panel van.
|A lovely white over black early split screen. The|
chrome towel rail bumpers and chrome body
trim contrast the gloss black paint perfectly.
|This awesome grey primered beetle was one|
of the race cars, I don't know what size motor
this bug had but it was BIG and had a huge
turbo bolted to it.
|I have to admit I don't really know what I'm |
looking at, except to say that I bet it's fast.
|Santa Pod hosts the Outlaw Anglia's series|
racing and some of the Outlaw Anglia's were
running at the weekend.
|This pro-street Pop (Anglia) looked tough with|
that huge wheel and tyre combination crammed
under the stock body and that huge rear spoiler.
|This chopped and channelled Anglia looked|
great with it's traditional hot rod style black and
flames paint job. Massive rear wheels help to
get traction when racing.
|A massive big block motor crammed in the|
small engine bay of the old Ford. The tube
chassis could almost be called a work of art.
|The 1965 GTO was produced as a muscle car,|
but this GTO has had some serious performance
|Those huge 15" x 15" rear tyres and the neatly|
packed parachute give a glue as to this cars
|This immaculate 1967 notch back in light blue|
caught my eye as it looked all original, and
looked gorgeous parked up in the sunshine.
|A super straight, super clean lowered single |
cab split screen pick up, with a narrowed front
beam, it was simply stunning.
|A lovely old 1967 Dodge A100 Sportsman in |
what looked like stock original condition. The
A100 vans were produced from 1964 - 1970.
|A seriously low Dove Blue split screen panel|
van, with a seriously narrowed front beam.
This van had some gorgeous patina.
|This lovely old split screen was a U.S. import|
and had some serious patina on the paint
work.This bus was still displaying the states
plate so that gave me an idea...
|My blog has quite a few followers in California|
so I wondered if anyone in the sunny state
recognised this registration plate? I know it's
an extremely long shot but you never know.
(no prize's are up for grabs, it's simply for fun)
|I did like this old sign written single cab split |
screen pick up. The cover over the pick up
bed looked great as did the roof rack and the
|Another incredibly low early beetle finished in|
a nice light bronze colour. I did like the old
|This gorgeous 1967 cherry red split screen |
was amazing. The perfectly straight body with
the gorgeous red paint is simply stunning.
The chrome wire wheels and the chrome
bumpers added some lovely bright work.
|I liked the two bow, and three bow roof racks|
on this bus. The chrome bumpers, body trim
and window trim break up the gorgeous red
paint just enough.
|From one extreme to another, but equally as|
nice in their own way are this RAT looking bug
and early split screen parked up behind the pit
area of the track.
|This lovely early split screen panel van had |
some lovely patina going on. This bus was
riding at close to stock height and on the
original steel wheels, which always looks good.
|The owner of this 1969 beetle had made sure|
he'd have somewhere to pitch his tent, as it
does get crowded in the camping areas. This
neat roof mounted tent looked awesome.
|This seriously low bright red 1966 beetle was|
just slowly cruising along towards the race
tack, and looking cool as he did so.
|This super straight gloss black oval beetle not |
only had a super straight body, with lovely
original steel wheels with domed hub caps,
and lovely shiny chrome towel rail bumpers
but this lovely bug also had..
|... A cool registration number. I don't know if|
you can get a 1797cc motor, but how cool
would that be if you can and you put it in this
