|This lovely looking 1988 white T25 was parked|
up in the 'white bus' line up. I do like the square
double headlights on a T25 as opposed to the
single round light unit's, and the 'Empi' style 5
|Another white T25, This time it's a stunning 1989|
Westfalia. This really was straight and solid
looking and the aftermarket wheels were a good
choice to compliment the overall look.
|The all white body, including the bumpers looked|
good. This super straight T25 really was a nice
looking bus, and being a real 'Westy' it had the
nice well equipped interior.
|All the T4's and the T5 looked good, but this|
super bright green T4 caught my eye. The simple
two tone colours of bright green and black works
|The big slab of bright green colour shouldn't|
work, but it does. The black aftermarket wheels
and tinted side window are just enough to break
up the bright paintwork.
|It wasn't planned but the white buses ended up|
parking next to each other. From left to right:
1970 early bay, 1988 T25, 1989 T25 Westfalia
and my 1999 T4.
|This old 'Moggy' really was a solid looking car|
and lovely and straight. The paint might have
been original as it looked aged and just right.
|Another look along the 'white' bus line up. There|
are 3 generations of the Volkswagen bus here,
and you can see how they have evolved over
the years. Each model is as good as the next
in their own way.
|As part of the Xmas fun, JK had arranged a|
'Best decorated VW' competition and the two
young ladies that came along in this 1973
Beetle did a great job in decorating their bug.
|This really was a nice looking car, which was|
very straight and solid looking. The two tone
colour scheme was unusual but really looked
|The two young ladies (just in the photo on the|
left of this photo) must have spent about an hour
decorating their bug, but it was well worth all the
effort the ladies put in. I don't know if they won
the competition, but I think they should have.
|This 1972 late bay looked as though it may have|
been a Riveria conversion with that style of pop
top (?) It had a very distinctive cow pattern design
paint scheme which really stood out. I did like the
bison horns on the roof rack.
|This bus certainly stands out. It's always nice to|
see how owners of any type of bus have put
their own interpretation and personality into
|A fun sticker on the rear of the late bay says it |
|This lovely lowered 1967 / 68 beetle came along|
to the Just Kampers Xmas meet. I saw this bug
drive into the car park and it sounded lovely.
|This early bug had the Cal-look with the bumpers|
removed, lowered and sitting on those 8 spoke
|This really was a nice looking bug. The single|
colour coat of paint and lack of chrome trim add
to the overall look of this gorgeous bug.
|The Volkswagen beetle really has an iconic|
shape that is recognised all over the world. They
have so much shape and flowing contours as
opposed to the vehicles of today.
|Another look along the T4 line up, it was good|
to have a look around these T4's and get some
idea's for my bus. I think a rear wiper could be
added to my list of things to do in the future.
|This lovely old bug arrived mid-morning and|
parked up next to my '99. This 1970 bug had a
few signs of wear and tear but that didn't matter
as it was still on the road and being enjoyed by
the owner, just as it should be.
|It looks as though this bug has recently had a |
new rear apron, as it was in red oxide primer,
but at least it's a sign that this is a work in
progress car. This 45 year bug looked mostly
original from what I could see, and it looked great.
|On the back seat of the bug, the owner had this|
cool looking music box made from an old
|Looking across the front of the beetle towards|
the Just Kampers warehouse. The T4/5 line up
on the left and my '99 T4 on the right.
|This gorgeous 1972 white over red late bay|
was parked up in the 'overflow' car park. This
bus named 'Ruby', was riding at standard height
which I always think looks great.
|The super straight body and almost perfect paint|
gives off a lovely sharp reflection. The black Empi
5 spoke wheels and clear rear light lenses add to
this buses overall cool look.
|A fun sticker in the back of this late bay, a caption|
that I think most of us bay window owners can
relate to, as we have all been there sometime.
|Another look at the 'white' bus line up. It's strange|
how all the white vehicles seemed to park next to
|This lovely 1984 high top T25 looked really cool|
in it's white over orange paint scheme. These
high tops are brilliant as there is so much more
room inside compared to a tin top or even a pop
|The shape of the high top roof makes this bus|
look like it's doing 70mph standing still.! I did
like the tinted windows which give some stark
contrast against the bright orange paint.
|A look across the front of the Just Kampers|
warehouse and the fantastic diversity of
Volkswagen's that attended the Xmas open day.
|Just another look of that cal-look beetle parked|
in front of the lime green T4, a nice contrast of
colour and shapes.
|As well as refreshments, JK had these cool|
surf themed stickers, and again all donations
received went into the charity pot.
|A nice reflection showing my '99 T4 Transporter|
in the super straight, and super shiny body panel
of a blue T4 parked opposite me.
|This bay really was nice and clean and straight|
and the perfect pastel yellow paint accentuated
how straight and solid the body really was.
|Just another picture of the gorgeous red 1967|
Karmann Cabrio that featured in part one of my
blog review for no other reason, than I think
this is one cool ride.
