|A close up of the Duke's flawless red paint that|
looks as fresh today as it did when it was painted
4 years ago.
|You can see on the corner panels just how nice|
and shiny the bright red paint is on the Duke.
This cool photo shows the contrast between
the bright red and the deep blue paint of the T5.
|A close up of the Duke's door decals. If you |
attend any Volkswagen show's this season and
see the Duke, I strongly recommend you go take
a long close look, as you won't be disappointed.
|This is how the Duke looked before it's amazing|
transformation into the show winning standard
bus it is today. The old adage about the ugly
ducklings turning into beautiful swans comes
to mind !
|This gorgeous 1963 split screen looked fantastic|
in the winter sunshine. The white over sealing
wax red ( I think) paint with the white painted
steel wheels helped to make this lovely bus
|This lovely old split belongs to Fiona who has|
had the bus for 4 years and uses it everyday
as her daily driver, which for comfort is why the
bus still rides at the standard height and hasn't
as yet been lowered.
|Fiona has christened her bus 'Yucky Doo Dah'|
and despite the name, Fiona insists the bus is
male, it's just that (in her words) " he's just in
touch with his feminine side".
|My names sake Davyd Clark, came along to the |
movie night in his 1991 twin slider T25. This
awesome bus sits this low thanks to a having
a Rayvern hydraulic suspension set up, although
Davyd still wants the bus to sit lower!
|Davyd is a member of the Wolfsburg Bus Crew|
club on facebook and proudly displays his gold
coloured sticker in the window.
|Looking down one of the rows of Volkswagens|
parked up at the RTR at the movies. I think there
must have been about 60 / 70 vehicles inside
the warehouse and more parked up outside.
|The life size decals of Vincent and Jules from|
the cult movie 'Pulp Fiction' on the back of this
super bright white T4 caught my eye as it's one
of my favourite films.
|A better look at this bus. This really was a lovely|
clean bus and those custom wheels with just a
hint of colour helped to make this bus stand out.
|This super straight 1972 Devon (?) looked great|
with it's white over jet black paint. The sides of
this lovely bus were perfectly straight as you can
see from the almost perfect reflections. The custom
chrome nerf bars at the front looked trick.
|The chrome bumper, tinted windows and after-|
market wheels all helped to make this old bus
|Meet 'Ruby' a 1971 high top white over red bay|
window. This lovely old bus looked pretty much
standard apart from the chrome headlight peaks
and the twin spot lights.
|This is the huge empty warehouse that Simon|
owns, and who allowed John to use it for the
RTR movie night. It was just perfect for the job.
|Rich has christened his bus 'Margo' who sits|
at stock height, which in my humble opinion
always looks best. Rich makes regular trips to
Devon in Margo so she's reliable too.
