|The first vehicle to catch my eye was this early|
bay, which had huge amounts of real patina.
This 1969 panel van looked fantastic and I think
it had recently been imported from Long Beach,
|This old van looked just right, from the standard|
ride height, to the original steel wheels with
whitewall tyres and even the new 3 bow roof
rack looked just right.
|This stock looking early bay really did look nice.|
I'm not sure what it is that makes me like this
bus so much, but whatever it is, it's working.
|This bright green 1985 T25 Syncro looked great|
parked up at the show. I do like these T25
Syncro's as they just look tough and as they
could go anywhere.
|This really is a tough looking T25, and the|
unusual green colour suits the look of this bus.
I did like where and how the spare wheel was
|Robert (AKA Bert) is also a member of the|
VWOWGC club and camped out in his 1983
T25. Both Robert and Darren must cover
hundreds of miles each year just travelling to
and from VW shows.
|This gorgeous 1965 split screen looked lovely|
parked up. The two tone colour's on this bus
with matching bumpers worked really well.
|This really was a nice straight bus and the|
paint accentuates the straight body panels. I
did like the 3 bow roof rack which is a nice
looking accessory that no doubt comes in
handy for weekends away.
|This light blue late bay had a floral paint scheme|
with what looked like hand painted flowers on
|The floral theme continued down to the |
|This stunning 1972 Sierra yellow late bay looked|
amazing, The body was so straight and solid
and the matching pop top canvas helped make
this bus stand out.
|This looks like it could be a Devon Moonraker|
conversion judging the style of that pop top,
although I could be wrong! Whatever conversion
it is, I did like it.
|Kevin's gorgeous T4 parked up with Matthew|
and Chris who are fellow members of Oxdubz
|This solid looking 1968 early bay looked like a|
nice honest bus. This looks as though it still had
the original paint, which is always nice to see.
|Even though this lovely old stock looking bay |
was starting to show it's age, it still looked
amazing and was still very desirable.
|At first glance this unassuming blue T4 looked|
like just another T4 parked up, but as I got closer
I noticed a few details that made this particular
T4 stand out.
|The lovely metallic paint was finished to a very|
high standard, and the old skool pin striping on
the tail gate looked awesome.
|And those huge deep dish banded steel wheels|
looked great in brilliant white.
|The guy's from 'Voodoo VW' were trading at|
Dub Aid and they brought along their yellow
1986 T25 panel van.
|This 1977 late bay in what looks like Dove blue|
or a very similar colour looked really nice and
straight as you can from the reflection along the
|This immaculate 1972 late bay looked great in|
it's white over blue paint. The chrome bumpers
and the tinted blue rear window make this bay
|This really was a nice clean and straight bus,|
and with more tinted glass on the side this really
did look something special.Those polished
Fuchs style wheels complimented the chrome
bumpers, headlight rings and fresh air grille.
|This stunning Syncro had German licence plates|
so I'm not sure if it's a German visitor to the show
or whether it has just been imported. The twin
roof racks no doubt come in handy to carry all
the extras and spares when going off road.
|Another vehicle to have German plates was |
this lovely looking white over orange late bay.
This, as was the syncro above very clean and
|There was plenty of variety at the Dub Aid 5|
show. This photo was taken in the weekend
|'Just Kampers' attended the show in their lovely|
1970 Preservation parts early bay panel van.
I have seen this van on numerous occasions
and it looks better every time I see it.
|In the day visitor car park I spotted this really|
immaculate 1970 white beetle. This little bug
was so clean and so straight I just had to take
a photo. The twin spot lights mounted on the
bumper was a nice touch that suited the car.
