The variety of vehicles at our club meets is truly diverse, from show winning early split screen buses to RAT looking beetle's and buses, and water cooled T4's / Golf's. The club welcomes any Volkswagen owner and their vehicle whether it's air-cooled or water cooled. As with any club meet across the U.K. the attendance of members is largely dependent on the great British weather, and as it gets colder and the dark nights draw in, the attendance figures drop but there are still the hardy bunch who turn up month after month. It didn't help that this month it was bonfire night on the night of our club meet, so a few members could have been at firework displays.

|The first of the hardy bunch is Gary who came|
along in his lovely 1971 cross over bay from the
neighbouring county of Bedfordshire. Gary's
white over blue bus is his daily driver.
|Gary has recently added the Empi 5 spoke|
wheels and had the bus lowered both of which
help transform the look of this old bus.
Considering this bus is used on a daily basis,
it does look very clean and tidy.
|A good photo of Gray's bus from the front, you|
can see just how clean it is considering it has
to brave the elements every day.
|Kevin and Sam came along in Kevin's 1987|
T25 water cooled crew cab pick up. Kevin also
owns a 1970 off road trials beetle.
|Kevin's crew cab is a real work horse that he|
uses to move everything from Volkswagen parts
for his and his sons off road beetle's, to his
|I went along to the club meet in my new 1999|
2.5tdi T4, not because I didn't want to go in my
1969 microbus, but because having purchased
it, a lot of the club members hadn't seen it, so I
thought I'd take it along and show it off!
|This is my daily driver now and the benefits of|
using this are many, including almost twice as
good MPG compared to my old 1600cc Honda
HRV, and of course I get to drive a Volkswagen
every day to work.
|Claude came along in his daily driver, an '05|
Golf. Claude also has a lovely 1960 split screen
bus and a 1958 low light Karmann Ghia but not
surprisingly decided to leave them in the garage.
|Amanda and Simon came along in Amanda's|
very distinctive silver Golf with it's super bright
pink wheels and personalised registration Number.
|Amanda's rear end with her unique registration|
number, 'X 17RSE' (kiss arse)
|The Outcast VW club line up on a cold, dark and|
damp Thursday evening. Although the numbers
of members was down on previous months it
was still a very enjoyable evening with like
|The line up from a different angle, (before Ryan|
and Luke arrived).
|The constant drizzle couldn't put off the hardy|
members of the Outcast VW Club from
attending the monthly meet.
|Ryan and Luke made a pleasant surprise visit |
to our club meet in Ryan's '70 early bay. Ryan
and Luke are members of the 'VW Collective'
