|I did like this 1990 T25 crew cab pick up. I'm|
not sure if it was a syncro version or not but
it did look good. I do like the 'off road' style
of Volkswagen regardless of which model.
|This gorgeous green 1967 beetle looked great|
parked up. I do like that colour which looks
similar to Pacific Blue. I did like the chrome
towel rail bumpers and roof rack which always
look good on an early beetle.
|This really was a nice straight bug with a lovely|
coat of paint. The BRM (I think) wheels looked
made for this car and suit it perfectly.
|WOW, this 1981 T25 crew cab must surely be|
riding on air suspension to sit that low. The
RAT look of this double cab suited it's low
|This really did stand out, you can see just how|
low this old workhorse sits from this angle. I don't
know what make those wheels are but they suit
this very low bus.
|This really is a stunning bus that they have named|
'Sammy'. This bus is finished to an almost a show
standard, and no expense is spared in keeping
Sammy on the road and in this condition.
|High or low, how do you like your bus to sit? |
However you like your Volkswagen you'll be sure
to find it at the Dub Freeze show.
|This very cool retro looking 1972 bay caught|
my eye. I just love those old skool stripes and
the high stance on this late bay. The alloy mesh
visor and chrome 5 spoke wheels were nice
additions to this lovely bay window.
|This 1969 early bay looked like a nice clean|
and straight bus. Finished in red with a white
roof this bus really was a good example.
|The '69 looks to be riding at stock height which|
I like, and I think looking at it, it could be a U.S.
|How nice is this pre-1963 split screen panel|
van? It's finished in a satin baby blue colour,
including the roof and looks gorgeous. The
painted banded steel wheels help make this
van look tough. The full length roof rack was
a nice accessory.
|This lovely van looked so clean and the body|
panels were so straight. This really was a nice
looking split screen van.
|This photo gives you an idea of the diversity|
of Volkswagen's to be seen at Dub Freeze.
Whether your into show winning standard
vehicles or bugs and buses that have the
RAT look, you'll find them all parked up within
the grounds of the show.
|You can see just how straight this lovely panel|
van actually is. The clear tail light lenses give
the back end a clean crisp look.
|The blue tinted rear window, the 3 bow roof rack|
and clear tail light lenses all help to make this
|One of the vehicles up for sale at Dub Freeze|
was this 1970 U.S. import. This was imported
from San Diego and used to be a military sea-
lift command vehicle.
|Extra vents in the lower quarter panel, I'm not|
sure why though...?
|This bus had a current M.O.T. and a fully rebuilt|
engine. It also had many new parts including,
battery, lights and carburettor. I did like the
stencil on the tailgate, " 45 MPH MAX". This bus
could be yours for £10,000 ($14,200 approx)
|Painted and shiny or patina'd and dull, whatever|
you tastes, you'll be sure to find it at this great
weekend show in Staffordshire.
|This gorgeous 1964 21 window samba looked|
gorgeous in it's perfect white over baby blue
paint. The BRM wheels suit the overall look of
this lovely old split screen.
|This bus has had a lot of work carried out on it|
over the years including many new panels, a new
rag top, headliner and paint to mention just a
few. This lovely samba was up for sale for
£35,000 ($48,657 approx)
|Another bus for sale was this gorgeous patina'd|
1970 early bay. It's a U.S. import and has been
registered in the U.K. and has a current M.O.T.
|This early bay did look quite solid. It has a strong|
1.6 engine and all the brake pipes have been
replaced. It also has U.K, lights fitted. This bus
could be yours for £8000 ($11,200 approx)
|This stunning 1966 sundial split screen was|
immaculate. This bus is another U.S import this
time from Arizona which means it's going to be
nice and solid underneath.
|This really was a nice bus, the body was perfectly|
straight and the paint was flawless. This bus has
had many new parts including, brakes, shocks,
fuel lines and filter, clutch and cable. All this for
price of £20,750 ($29,000 approx)
|Regular readers will know I just love panel vans|
and this 1965 U.S. imported panel was gorgeous.
The body was perfectly straight and painted in
a lovely white over blue colour scheme.
|This really was a nice straight panel van, as this|
photo shows. This bus was running a stock
1500 single port motor and stock wheels. This van
was up for sale for £18,000 ($25,000 approx)
|A pair of early 1960's split screen buses parked|
up. Similar in age but so different in every other
aspect. The good thing about this show is the
great mix of Volkswagen's all parked together.
|This super bright green and white 1967 split|
screen was another vehicle for sale. This bus
was stunning and finished to a show standard.
|I didn't find out much about this gorgeous split|
screen, but looking at the pictures you can tell
no expense was spared on building this bus.
|It had twin roof racks, a 2 bow and a 3 bow which|
looked great and polished Fuchs style wheels.
This bus was up for sale for £29,950 ($41,600
|This lovely 1975 bay window looked nice. It|
really was clean and tidy. The tinted side
windows suited the white over blue paint scheme
on this bus.
|This 1969 deluxe bus was another U.S. import|
and had the tell tale U.S. patina.There wasn't
much info about the bus but it looked like a
typical solid U.S. import.
|The patina looked good so I assume the bus|
came from a sunny state in the U.S. It did need
some TLC but for £10,000 ($14,000 approx)
you could do a lot worse and it does have the
RAT look which is all the rage at the moment.
|This cool looking yellow type 3 (fastback) was|
nice and clean. It's a rare automatic model with
centre line drag alloy wheels. It was resprayed
a while back and has a few rust spots starting
to come through, but that doesn't matter.
|The interior was pretty much standard and in a|
really nice condition. The alloy mesh visor and
roof rack were some nice additions. This T3
was up for sale for £5,250 ono ($7,200 approx)
|This lovely looking 1966 split has the RAT look |
and it looked great. The rough looking body and
the patina paint made this bus stand out. I did
like the cyclops light on the cab roof.
|It's all about the small details and this '66 had|
some nice touches such as the chequered
design in the headlights and the hard to find
'Michelin man' on the towel rail bumper.
|The all red rear light lenses along with the 3 bow|
roof rack, with ladder suit this old bus perfectly.
|Heading back to the car park I saw this gorgeous|
1969 cherry red beetle parked up. This really was
a nice and clean looking bug. I did like the single
yellow spotlight which was a nice addition as
were the classic BRM wheels.
|The body panels on this old bug were perfectly|
straight and the deep red paint gave off an almost
perfect reflection. Another nice addition was the
small chrome fog light tucked under the bumper.
|This 2001 T4 caught my eye and I thought it|
looked great. It looks as though it has been
wrapped in an oak flooring effect vehicle wrap,
and the result looked fantastic.
|A close up showing the detail. This really was a|
nice looking T4. Even if vehicle wrapping isn't
your thing, you have to admit it looks cool.
|The whole vehicle had been wrapped in the|
wood effect and I did like this look. It certainly
stood out amongst the other 100 or so T4's
parked up in the overflow car park.
|OK I was trying to be artistic in this profile photo|
on a lovely 1960's beetle. I don't think the photo
worked that well, but I did like this car.
|The angle of this photo shows just how nice the|
high top bays really are. I liked the fact that it
wasn't painted and shiny, but it just looked like
a nice honest high top bus.
