|This old looking bug had some nice touches|
such as the strap across the bottom of the
bonnet and the aftermarket indicators below
|I did like the overall look of this late bug, the|
rope tied around the nerf bars helped to 'age'
the bug, but the thing that I liked most about
|...was the wheel and tyre combination. Those|
highly polished B&M 4 spoke wheels with
the red and white wall tyres looked fantastic
against the rust coloured body panels.
|In the area reserved for vehicles for sale I saw|
this lovely yellow and brown 1972 Dormobile.
It came with a current M.O.T. and it had been
fully restored in 2008 / 9 and it still looked very
nice and solid 7 years later.
This bus had a standard 1600cc engine with
twin dellorto 36 carbs. This lovely bus was
up for sale for £16,500 ($23,840 approx)
|This super cool looking bug was also up for|
sale. It's a 1967 with 3" Atomwerks drop spring
plates, and a 4" narrowed front beam and Fuchs
This old bug was also riding on air suspension.
This gorgeous blue bug could be yours for the
reasonable price of £7,995 ($11,551 approx)
|Those huge rear tyres that filled the rear arches|
perfectly and that massive 'Stinger' exhaust
gave a few clues as to this cars pedigree.
|This stunning white over black early split screen|
was parked up near the pit area and looked
awesome. The super straight body gives off
an almost perfect reflection of the white T4
parked up next to it.
|This has to be one of the straightest buses I|
have seen. I did like the chrome towel rail
bumpers that were in stark contrast to the
glossy black paint.
|This 1969 Plymouth Barracuda was parked up|
in the pits having just run the 1/4 mile. These
are tough looking cars...
|But when you have what looks like 15" Hoosier|
slick tyre's tucked under the rear arches the look
just gets even tougher.
|I spotted this lovely 1964 Caravelle camper on|
the back of a trailer and it was for sale. It was
freshly imported from southern California, so
it was bound to be almost rust free. It came
with 5 new whitewall tyre's and new truck style
|This interior was all original and looked to be|
in very good condition and complete. This
really was a nice looking bus.
|OK the interior was starting to look old and|
tired but after 52 years in the Californian heat
it's only to be expected, the main thing is it was
complete and pretty much original.
|This bus looked so nice and was very desirable.|
The Caravelle was up for sale for the reasonable
prices of £16,495 ($23,834 approx)
|I was just about to leave the drag racing and |
have a wander around when I saw the resident
jet car, Fire Force getting ready to run down the
track, needless to say I stayed and watched the
jet car action.
|Walking back towards my bus through the|
camping area I saw this lovely brown early
bug with red tinted perspex windows. It sounds
like a terrible colour mix, but it looked great.
|The low stance, the narrowed front beam and|
those centerline style wheels all helped to make
this bug stand out.
