|Heading towards the entrance of the leisure|
centre I spotted this lovely looking high top T25
syncro in an army green colour. I don't know
what it is about this syncro, but I loved it.
|This off road T25 really did appeal to me, I do|
like off road Volkswagen's and this T25 looked
so good. It wasn't flash or have a fancy paint job
but I think that just added to it's 'rough and ready
to go anywhere' appeal.
|This gorgeous teal / turquoise late split screen|
panel van belonged to the guys from 'Karmann
Konnections' who supply parts and accessories
for classic Porsche's, and it looked awesome.
|Inside the Montem Leisure Centre main hall, the|
traders were all ready for a days trading. Tonya,
Claude and I got in early due to pre booking our
tickets so for the first 45 minutes we could walk
round with ease.
|After looking around the stalls inside the main|
hall, Tonya and I headed back outside where I
saw this lovely early 21 window split screen.
I did like the look of this bus, with it's slight
RAT look patina paint scheme.
|This T4 crew cab is outrageous. It's so unique,|
and whether you like it or hate you have to give
the owner credit for ingenuity. Not only has he
mated a caravan body to the chassis, but all
the other accessories he has fitted is amazing.
|OK it looks like something out of 'The Beverly|
Hillbillies' and It's so ugly it's beautiful and I
love it. I did like the ship lap siding on the
caravan body which gives a contrasting
rustic look against the shiny custom wheels.
|However do you come up with the idea for this?|
I suppose this could be called Volkswagen
Glamping? I would have liked to have spent
more time looking at this but time was pressing
on and there was still so much to see.
|This lovely 1967 early bay panel van looked so|
nice with what looks like OG paint. I do like the
whole look of this van from the narrowed front
beam, to the rear window blind and the all red
U.S. style tail lights.
|This gorgeous 1970 fastback was immaculate|
and amazingly straight as you can see from the
reflection in the lovely green paint. This really
was a nice looking type 3.
|A truly diverse variety of air-cooled and water|
cooled Volkswagen's is always guaranteed in
the Slough Swapmeet car park.
|This really was a nice looking car. The body was|
so straight, and the paint was flawless and not
to mention that bright shiny chrome work.
|You can see just how straight the panels really|
are from this photo. The inside of the cab bed
is finished to the same high standard as the rest
of the body.
|As you would expect the engine bay was also|
super clean. How bus owners manage to keep
their engine bay look so clean is a mystery
to me... I just wish mine was as clean.
|Taking of super clean crew cabs, how about this|
bright orange 1978 late bay. This really was an
immaculate bus that looked great in it's almost
perfect paint. I did like it's standard ride height.
|This stunning early split screen was without|
doubt my favourite split screen at the swapmeet.
The single white coat of paint, with the chrome
5 spoke wheels and those gorgeous electric
blue windows really made this old bus stand out.
|This is one of those vehicles you see every so|
often where you wouldn't change a single thing.
The 3 bow roof rack and colour coded bumpers
also help to give this bus the wow factor.
|Another bus with coloured windows was this|
very RAT looking early bay. This bay had what
looked like orange perspex windows, which
sounds YUK, but actually looks really cool. It
even had a matching amber light on the roof!
|The old skool roof rack with the rear ladder,|
suited the look of this ratty bus. I did like the
deluxe trim on the bumpers and around the
|This lovely 1966 beetle looked sweet with it's|
lowered stance and single colour paint. I think
those Fuchs style wheels suit a lowered bug.
I also liked the chrome towel rail bumper.
|The early bugs do have a certain something|
about them, it doesn't matter that this didn't
have a show winner paint job, because it looked
just fine as it is.
|This lovely 1970 white over red early bay had|
something I liked, but I cannot put my finger on
what it was. Maybe it was the stock ride height,
I don't know, but I did like it.
|Nope, I still can't work out why this lovely old bus|
appeals to me... I suppose it just looks right.
|I've seen this early bay panel van on several|
occasions and it looks just as gorgeous every
time I see it. I love the Porsche decals and the
high ride height. The white wall tyres suit the
white of the decal lettering perfectly.
|Some body's little joke.. a dummy's lower torso|
is placed under the front of this RAT looking
split screen to make it look like someone was
under the bus. It did look very realistic.
|It wasn't all Volkswagen's parked up in the car|
park, this gorgeous purple Harley Davidson
soft tail looked great parked up.
|Joe just leaving the swapmeet in his super cool |
buggy, Joe is driving back with some other
members of the same club. Joe also owns a
lovely early bay.
|Just looking at Joe in this close up photo as he|
leaves the swapmeet makes me feel cold. Tonya
and I were glad we were in my bay, at least we
had some heat coming through the vents.
|The impromptu Volkswagen repair car park in|
Slough. Once the owner of the split screen had
adjusted the clutch cable and after driving the
bus back and forth a few times, he said that the
clutch pedal had never felt so good !.
