|The rear bumper was actually sitting on the|
grass in the show and shine field. The big bore
exhaust exited through the rear bumper, maybe
the size of the exhaust is hiding something big
in the engine department..?
|You can see just how low this bus sits whilst|
|Parked next to the low green bay was this RAT|
looking red early bay. This bus was equally as
low and again must have had air ride. This cool
bus may have had the RAT look, but it actually
looked quite solid.
|This bus may of had the RAT look on the out-|
side, but inside it was really nice with red vinyl
tuck and roll seating.
|The front panel of this RAT look early bay had|
a story to tell.
|Both buses parked up. You can just see how|
low these buses are compared the the baby
blue bus on the left.
|This double door panel van is quite rare and|
looked gorgeous with it's patina'd Dove blue
(I think) paint. This bus also sat quite low
which helped the overall look of this lovely bus.
|This old panel van may have had the patina|
look on the outside, but on the inside it was a
different story. The red vinyl door cards and
seat bases were very neat and well done.
|The camping unit looked to a bespoke unit that|
suited the van and again finished to a very high
|A nice photo showing this buses lovely real|
patina. The engine and engine bay were both
very clean and tidy.
|Looking into this panel van through the open|
safari screen windows, the red tuck and roll
upholstery looks amazing and almost too nice
to sit on!
|This immaculate 1969 early bay really looked|
nice and clean and super straight. This bus
really was in 'just like new' condition.
|You can see just how clean and straight this|
gorgeous bus is in this photo. It never ceases
to amaze me how owners keep their buses
looking so clean, especially when you consider
the lousy British climate.
|The interior of this gorgeous bus was finished|
to the same high standard as the exterior.
|Even the engine and engine bay were spotless,|
it really did look as though you could eat your
dinner off of it. It amazes me how owners keep
the buses so clean I barely get time to wash
|This lovely 1972 1300 beetle was another |
vehicle that looked so clean and it's no surprise
as this bug had a body off restoration back in
2012. The stunning Rover Kingfisher blue paint
had been applied over super straight body panels.
|Again the interior was finished to the same high|
standard. The MK1 Golf seats and matching door
cards look great.
|The gas burner wheels looked the perfect|
choice to compliment this beetle's looks.
|This super bright pink 1971 beetle may not|
the colour choice of everyone, but I thought
it looked cool. (I have owned a two tone pink
Ford Popular hot rod in the past so I would
wouldn't I !! ) This pink beauty was actually
very straight and clean.
|This really was a nice clean honest beetle that|
looked great in the sunshine at the Camper and
|This 1969 gloss black early bay should have|
won the most shiny reflection prize if there
was one, as the reflection in that perfectly
applied paint was amazing.
|It's unusual to see a bay painted in a single|
colour, normally the roof or bumpers are a
different colour, but this bay was all black, even
the windows and it did look really cool.
|The only chrome I could find on this lovely bus|
was the Radar wheels which complimented the
black paint perfectly.
|This gorgeous metallic bronze beach buggy|
looked awesome. I think it's a MK1 GP body
that's sitting on a '72 floorpan. I do like beach
buggy's but living in the U.K and owing one
takes a hardier person than I am, as your
open to all the elements.
|The MK1 beach buggy body style is a close|
relative of the original Myers Manx body, in
looks anyway and I personally think think they
are the most well proportioned and best looking
of the U.K built beach buggies.
|A close of the gorgeous metalflake paint on|
this lovely buggy. This is, in my opinion the
only paint finish to have on a beach buggy.
|The interiors of beach buggies are normally|
a bit bare due to being exposed, but the owner
of this buggy has added some style by matching
the silver padded seats with the alloy chequer
|The very stylish yet sparse interior looked great|
and those seats and floor work so well together.
|This white over cherry red 2003 type 2 Rio, |
late bay was on of the vehicles up for sale at
the show. It has a 1600cc engine and it is a
RHD model. It was extremely clean and very
|The interior was just as immaculate as the outside|
and featured a Webasto heater, microwave, T.V.
as well as a rock and roll bed and buddy seat
both finished in lovely cherry red and black vinyl.
|The cab of this bay also had been made over|
with the same matching vinyl seats and door
cards. This really was a nice bus, that could be
yours for £30,000 ($39,500 approx)
|From one extreme to another in the looks|
department, but equally as nice is this RAT
look 1969 sky blue and white early bay. I did
like the overall look of this lowered bay, the
full length roof rack and patinad' paint looked
just about right.
|The rust covered damaged rear quarter panel|
just added character to this lovely bus, and I
hope the owner doesn't repair and paint it as it
|I do like sign written buses, and this one was|
no different. The hand painted lettering and
the yellow pinstripe around the front clip looked
