|To start this weeks blog we have this stunning|
1967 21 window samba. This lovely bus looked
great in it's cream and white colour scheme. I
liked the fact that is wasn't lowered and still had
the original steel wheels.
|The perfectly straight body and immaculate paint|
made this old bus stand out. I did like the trim on
the colour coded bumpers.
|The samba is actually a 'Devon Caravette' as|
you can see from the photo. This really was a
nice bus and the pastel blue and white interior
|This 1971 blue and white lowered bug looked|
cool with it's aftermarket wheels and headlight
|You can see just low this bug really is from this|
photo. The aftermarket exhaust now exits from
the rear corner of the car and the stand off's
ensure the engine gets plenty of cooling.
|This green 1967 beetle looked to have been |
restored to the original specification / condition,
which always looks better that lowered.
|This car really was immaculate, the chrome on|
the U.S. spec towel rail bumper and hub caps
looked like new and complimented the green
painted bodywork perfectly.
|I do like to see a sign written panel van and this|
1965 split screen with the Brumos Racing logos
rocked my boat. This old panel van looked great
having been lowered and with those yellow head
|The logo on the cab doors states that Brumos|
Racing comes form Jacksonville, Florida... I'm
not sure if this is correct or not but it didn't really
matter as it looked so good.
|The Chiltern Hills Vintage Vehicle Rally has many|
classifications of vehicles including both British
and American classic cars.
|This cool RAT look 1966 Chevrolet C10 pick up|
looked great with it's distressed paintwork.
|Looking across the event field, classic cars for|
as far as the eye can see. There were classic
vehicles of all descriptions from all over the
|The Ford Pop has such a nice looking shape|
as you can see. This pop has over sized rear
wings to accommodate the massive rear wheels
on that Jaguar axle.
|This stunning bright red Ford Model 'B' 3 window|
coupe is radical. This car came down to our last
VW club meet, but I can't remember a lot about
the car, even though I spent most of the night
chatting to the owner!
|This gorgeous car looks pure hot rod with it's big|
and little wheels shod in those white wall tyres.
|There were hundreds upon hundreds of classic|
motorcycles at the show, this is just a small
selection of them.
|Maybe there wasn't as many scooters at the show|
as motorcycles but what they lacked in numbers
they made up with quality.
|Military vehicles are always present at the show|
and always have a great number of entrants. Again,
this is just a small selection of military vehicles
that attended this year.
|More classic motorcycles including low riders|
and choppers, and even trikes. This show really
does have something for everyone.
|This lovely slammed Volkswagen 1600 or Notch-|
back as they are more commonly know looked
super cool. The ride height along with the steel
sun visor and the roof rack helped to make this
old type 3 stand out.
|I did like the all red U.S. spec rear light lenses.|
This super low notchback was really straight and
solid and the chrome trim looked like new. The
type 3 was produced from 1961 - 1973.
|Just a random photo of the show as I headed|
towards yet more American classics. This show
gets bigger and better every year.
