|The Hebmuller was originally designed as a 2 |
seater sports car for Charles Radcliffye, a colonel
in the British army who was running Volkswagen
after the second world war ended.
|The Type 14A , was mechanically the same as|
the Beetle saloon. The front of the Heb looks
virtually the same as a beetle, however..
|Not a very good photo of the interior and dash|
board but it certainly looks original to me. This
had to be the rarest car in the Slough Swapmeet
|This army green coloured 1971 early bay double|
cab pick up looked cool. I did like the roof rack
that fitted over the double cab and the steel sun
visor. The colour coded bumpers gave this bay
the authentic military look.
|I did like the pick up bed cover which I think|
suits a pick up so well. This really was a nice
solid looking pick up.
|On the tail gate of the double cab I spotted this|
cool badge, 'Tankspotter'. I don't know if it's an
original item or whether someone has made it,
but it did suit the overall look of the vehicle.
|This lovely old split oval window bug looked great|
with it's real patina paint. This very stock looking
beetle certainly received plenty of admiring looks
for everyone who saw it.
|There is always a fantastic assortment of air-|
cooled vehicles that attend the Slough Swapmeet.
|A gorgeous early split screen parked next to|
a lovely old Karmann Ghia. The quality of the
vehicles in the car park was amazing, it was
just like a show and shine display.
|Talking of quality, how about the double cab|
split screen. Finished in some hue of beige with
a white roof this old pick up looked stunning.
|This pick ups looks are enhanced by it being|
lowered and possibly by having a narrow front
beam. This old crew cab really was in immaculate
|This 1989 T25 was another vehicle painted in|
army green and looked cool. I did like the decal
across the front which says 'Zombie virus response
unit', you never know when you may need this bus!
|This super straight 1967 Karmann Ghia looked|
amazing with it's flawless gloss black paint. The
chrome towel rail bumpers and the white painted
steel wheels add just enough contrast to the black
paint to help this old KG stand out.
|This immaculate 1966 beetle looked amazing|
with it's dark green paint over super straight
body panels. You can see just how straight this
old bug is by the reflection in the rear quarter
panel and door.
|This really is a gorgeous looking car. The paint|
is so shiny it looks as though it's still wet. The
chrome bumpers compliment the green colour
|A close up of the wheels on this gorgeous bug,|
The spun alloy centre pieces were as work of
art and those lovely Firestone Wide Oval tyres
filled the rear arches perfectly.
|A trio of Porsche 356's parked up at the Slough|
Swapmeet. I'm not sure if these guy's arrived
together or not, but one minute they weren't
there then all of a sudden all 3 were parked up!
|A silver early Karmann Ghia and a 1971 pastel|
yellow beetle parked up at the leisure centre.
|A better photo of the trio of Porsche 356's parked|
up at the Slough Swapmeet. These gorgeous cars
were produced from 1948 - 1965 and were
available in a 2 door coupe, 2 door convertible or
a 2 door roadster.
|A beautiful 1970 beetle finished in a gorgeous|
blue colour with contrasting wing piping. The all
red rear tail light lenses and those Radar wheels
helped to make this old bug stand out.
|This lovely grey 1964 beetle has featured on my|
blog several times before as I normally see it
at The Ace Cafe, London and it's easy to see
why I keep taking pictures of it, this really is a
lovely looking beetle.
|A very colourful display of spilt screen and|
bay window buses at the Slough Swapmeet.
