|The lovely Porsche Fuchs wheels look to be|
the perfect choice for this bus. The passion
for Volkswagens and particularly this lovely
old bus has been passed down through the
generations - grandfather, father and now Maney.
|Standing on my door step to get a good view|
of the venue, looking all the various Volkswagens
parked up in rows in the empty warehouse that
John acquired to hold the RTR Drive-In movie.
|It does look as though all the Volkswagens are|
crammed into the warehouse, but actually there
was plenty of room around each vehicle, and
each vehicle had a good view of the big screen.
|This trio of buses reminded me of the original|
'Italian Job' in which Michael Caine starred
with the red, white and blue Mini Coopers.
|David's blue and white 1966, and Fiona's|
red and white 1963 split screen buses for no
other reason that I think it makes for a good photo.
|The split screen bus is the most iconic VW and|
it's easy to see why looking at these two.
|Just getting a sneaky picture of the original|
Porsche engined Herbie that starred in the 1969
film 'The Love Bug'. You can read all about this
lovely bug in part 1 of this review.
|Fiona's and David's split screen buses looking |
gorgeous and all polished up for their night
out at the drive in movies.
|Although this was a Volkswagen event only, this|
Huge pimped up Scania arrived and parked in
the corner. This custom rig belongs to I.R.Lewton
(+ Daughter & Sons) road haulage.
|This custom truck was amazing. The attention to|
detail was incredible, and the truck had more
lights than Blackpool sea front.!
|I spent ages looking around this lovely|
truck but I couldn't work out whether the sides
were air brushed or whether it was wrapped
but whatever it was, it was stunning.
|The number of lights on this rig was incredible,|
and as the sun went down and it started to get
darker inside the warehouse, they put the lights
on and the truck lit up like a Christmas tree.
|Even the wheels, tyres and tyre lettering didn't|
escape the custom treatment. This is dedication
but I bet it's a nightmare to keep clean.
|Inside the cab it was like, no in fact it was better |
than a 5 star hotel. The door cards were finished
in what looked like cream and dark blue quilted
leather with matching seats and the deepest
pile carpet I have ever seen.
|Lying down by the side of the drivers seat was|
this revolver which hadn't escaped the custom
|Shaggy, Velma and Scooby Doo posing for|
photos by The Mystery Machine.
|Whilst sitting in my T4 looking in my door mirror I |
thought I'd take a sneaky photo of my friend David
and his daughter Louise who were relaxing whilst
enjoying a glass of champagne, but it looks as
though Louise has spotted me.!!
|You can forget the evolution of humans picture|
where the monkey slowly transforms into a
walking upright homo sapien, this right here
folks is the true meaning of evolution.
|A cool rear door badge I spotted on one of the|
buses parked inside the venue.
|Could the appearance of Iron Man be a|
clue as to the film we will be watching later..??
It is certainly a child friendly film, so it could be.
|The custom Scania at dusk with it's lights on.!|
You're not going to loose this truck in the car
park at night!.
|Just a random photo looking down the side of|
my camouflaged T4 at the big screen on which
we would soon be watching the film which was
still a closely guarded secret.
|There are no prizes for guessing which red bus|
this immaculate polished front badge is on.
|The DJ, aka Bug Beats kept us all entertained|
with quality music and had the youngsters (and
even a few older people) dancing and having
fun until the film started.
|The variety of hot and cold food, and hot and|
cold drinks available during the day was vast
and catered for all tastes.
|My T4 and David's 1966 splitty parked up inside|
the huge warehouse waiting for the movie to
start with the glow from the Scania's many lights
in the background.
|As the evening progressed the internal lighting|
was switched on, it can't be long until we finally
find out what film we shall be watching.
