|There were several Porsche 356's at the VW|
Expo show, including this lovely cream coloured
beauty. I think this 1600 super 2 door roadster
was a replica because the registration number
plate denotes it's a 1969, and they only made
the 356 until 1965.
|Simple and elegant interior of the Porsche 356.|
On a sunny Sunday afternoon, wouldn't you just
love to cruise around in this beautiful car?
|This super straight and super shiny 1964 rag |
top bug caught my eye with it's perfect gloss
black paint. The paint was that good it actually
looked as though it was still wet.
| I instantly recognised this 1971 road / race|
beetle. It belongs to Jonny, a mate of mine who
is a member of a local VW club called The
Wolfsburg Weed Huggers based in Penn, in
|Jonny's radical bug which he built himself has |
been named 'Miss White Racing' and it even
has it's own Facebook page.
|Miss White has a 2165cc engine and with this|
power Jonny normally gets down the 1/4 mile
strip in the low 15 second mark.
|The unusual feature, compared to other race|
cars of the time was that the 550 could be driven
to the track, raced, and then driven home showing
it's flexibility of being both a road and race car.
|Yet another stunning Porsche 356A speedster |
that looked fantastic in it's yellow paint. This one
has an age related number plate so it could be a
real one..? I did like the original Porsche nipple
|These really are lovely looking cars, especially|
when they are so straight and clean as this one.
|A 100% perfect reflection of gorgeous Porsche |
356A on the side of a 1965 split screen bus.
Body work just doesn't come any straighter than
this. The brown paint on the bus provides a
perfect background for the yellow reflection of
|The front of this old splitty wasn't too bad either!|
This bus really was so straight and smooth.
|Not only did this bus have a beautiful exterior, but|
it also had a beautiful interior.
|This 1971 Volks rod, in satin black with hot rod|
style red painted steel wheels looked really cool.
It has had a serious roof chop which makes this
bug look low and sleek.
|The rear end was really nice, I did like the huge|
rear tyres on those deep dish banded steel
wheels. I also liked the lack of bodywork and the
way the deck lid seems to float in mid air.
|This awesome T25 syncro was one of my top|
5 vehicles of the show. It had a whopping 2.8
litre Audi engine bolted into the engine bay. it
also had a full roll cage through the length of the
|The owner of this early bug had been at the show|
all weekend and had a neat camping facility.
These roof tents are so cool and save towing a
|This lovely patina'd 1963 SO33 split screen was|
another vehicle up for sale. The OG engine
runs really nice and the bus drives well.
|The patina is just as it should be, and the unusual|
steel sun roof made this bus just that bit different.
|A better look at the original interior which was|
in really good condition considering the age of
the bus, and that really cool opening sun roof.
|This 1971 buggy really stood out with its old |
skool gold metal flake paint that sparkled in the
sunshine. The Empi 5 spoke wheels finished
off the look perfectly.
|These buggies really are such a simple design|
that have stood the test of time since Bruce
Meyers first started to produce the buggy way
back in 1964. The design has changed very
little, if at all which is a great testament to
|The standard air-cooled engine is enough to|
power these lightweight buggies, but you can
always dress up your engine like this owner
has done to a very high standard.
|The VW Expo show is located deep within the|
rolling hills of deepest Oxfordshire, which is an
ideal location for a Volkswagen show.
|Just some of the exhibitors in the show and shine|
field. The weather was glorious and the number
of vehicles was in the thousands.
|But luckily his mate in an early bay was on hand|
to tow him onto the gravel road that runs through
the Stonor estate. It's all about team work !
