|In fact before I left at 08.30am I had to scrape|
the ice off the windows! It is still spring over
here in the U.K. and that means we still have
cold frosty nights, and sometimes days too!
|Approaching the Hindhead tunnel on the A3|
southbound. The sky looks a gorgeous deep
blue colour with white fluffy clouds. This isn't
any photographic trickery but looking at the
sky through my green top tint windscreen
which enhances the blue sky colour.
|As soon as I paid my £6.50 entry fee and started|
to drive in I noticed Volkswagen's of all makes
and models parked up, I thought to myself "this is
going to be a good day"
| This cool blue 1969 fastback was cruising down|
the main road next to the beach, this really was
a nice solid looking car.
|The old fastback looked fantastic just slowly|
cruising past in the bright spring sunshine. This
'69 looked pretty much stock and was so clean.
|A few mates and your buses at the beach on a|
sunny Sunday afternoon just chilling out that's
what life is all about, wouldn't you agree?
|This 1975 bay window had the brightest green|
paint that almost glowed in the sunshine. This
really was a very clean and straight bus.
|Another late bay at West Wittering was this|
white over turquoise bus. I did like the standard
ride height on this bus, I know the 'in thing' is to
have your bus lowered but riding high is much
more practical and far more comfortable.
|This baby blue 1971 early bay looked nice|
with it's white pop top. These buses are just
made for a stop over at the beach.
|The sheer number of Volkswagen's of all|
descriptions that attended this great VW
meet at the beach was truly amazing.
|These guy's were all from the same club and |
were parked up together, again the variety of
VW's just in this small group was fantastic.
|I did like the look of this 1967 blue beetle. It|
looked so clean and that chrome towel rail
bumper against the dark blue paint makes the
front of this early bug look so cool.
|This stunning 1963 split screen was totally|
immaculate and like new. Finished is white over
light green with colour matched steel wheels this
old bus really stood out.
|This really was an amazingly straight and|
solid looking split screen that looked right at
home parked up at the beach.
|I did like this all white 1970 Westfalia. This bus|
looked as though it was an American import
and still had what looked like the original
Westy interior. The white wall tyres were a
nice authentic touch.
|Volkswagen's everywhere at the West Wittering|
VW meet by the beach. A lovely looking red
1968 beetle that looked pretty much stock and
a bright orange 1978 late bay that gave off an
orange glow in the spring sunshine.
|This immaculate 1972 squareback was one of|
my favourite classic VW's at the meet. It really
was amazingly clean and straight and looked
like it could has just been driven off the
|You can see just how clean and straight this|
old '72 really is in this photo. This really was
a very desirable car.
|Another all white classic parked up was this|
lovely white 1970 beetle complete with the
period painted steel wheels and roof rack.
|Apart from those cool chrome headlight peaks|
this old bug looked pretty much original, and in
such a nice condition.
|It was fantastic to see so many camper vans |
parked up at the beach on a warm sunny
Sunday afternoon on the south coast.
|The colour of this Herbie themed 1969 beetle|
was gorgeous and it suited the car perfectly.
This really was a nice looking bug, I did like
the colour coded banded steel wheels and the
period looking roof rack.
|This photo shows off the deepness of the rear|
banded wheels. The deck lid rack was another
neat period accessory that looked perfect.
|This stunning 1973 late bay looked fantastic|
in the glorious spring sunshine. This bus was
another original looking vehicle that was, as
so many were, so clean and straight.
|I did like the contrasting green colour of the|
pop top canvas and the cool screen visor.
|Everywhere I looked I saw lovely old classic|
Volkswagen's parked up. Here a late bay and
an early bay are parked up side by side next
to the beach.
|This baby blue 1964, 15 window deluxe split |
screen caught my eye with it's full length roof rack
and solid looking body.
|This 52 year old bus really did look nice, I do|
those corner windows the deluxe buses had it
seems to finish off the look of the bus nicely.
|This lovely 1966 split screen was parked up and|
looked fantastic. I did like the colour combination
on this lowered splitty.
|This really was a nice straight bus as you can|
see from this photo.
|This lovely light blue early bay was parked up|
close to the beach and it's owners were just
chilling out in the sunshine. This really was a
laid back Volkswagen gathering.
|There was a vast array of different models of|
Volkswagen's on show at West Wittering. They
all looked great parked up together in a lovely
setting with glorious spring weather.
|This white T25 doka looked great parked up|
amongst all the modern T4 / T5's. I did like the
canvas cover over the rear bed.
|Another stock looking bus was this lovely red |
and white 1970 early bay. The stock ride height
and the stock looking body helped to make
this lovely old imported bus stand out.
|Looking in between two beach huts from the|
show area at the lovely sandy dog friendly
beach, I will definitely have to take Boobie
dog on the beach later.
|Sam Halson and her daughters (I think) went|
around the show taking lots of photos of all the
VW's that attended. They took this cool photo
of me and Boobie as we drove into the VW
meet at West Wittering in the sunshine.
|Another photo of Fiona (my microbus) parked |
up at this fantastic location again taken by
|And from the rear.. These are really good|
photos of my bus so thanks Sam! In fact the
one of me driving into the venue I have used
for my Facebook profile picture.
