|It's not often I post photo's of my bus on my blog|
so in a moment of self indulgence here is a better
close up picture of my bus.
|I parked up next to this lovely 1970 all white bug.|
This car was so nice and looked really straight
and solid. I did like the chrome smoothie wheels
with tyres that filled the arches.
|You can see just how clean this car is from this|
photo. The rear screen blind was a neat accessory
that suited the overall look of this lovely old bug.
|I was trying to be artistic by taking a photo of my|
bus in the chrome hubcap of the white beetle, I
think it sort of worked...
|Another beetle is the day visitor car park was this|
cool looking 1971 blue stock looking bug. I do
like to see stock looking VW's and this one was
|OK those aftermarket wheels aren't stock but it|
still looked good. The roof rack and the Empi
branded rear mud flaps were both neat
|Another stock looking vehicle was this gorgeous|
1971 white over blue late bay. This was another
very clean example that looked to be riding at
the stock height.
|The owner (who's name I have forgotten) was|
telling me all about the plans she has for her bus,
but as we all know, it takes time but hopefully her
plans will become reality.
|This white over green 1972 bus looks to have |
been slightly lowered. This was another very
clean and straight vehicle that looked good with
the chequered spare wheel cover and the clear
|This really was a lovely straight bus that was|
almost like new. I did like the VW branded mud
flaps that must stop all the muck and dirt from
rusting away the battery trays.
|This 1971 crossover bay caught my eye with it's|
grey primer paint job. I think the liking of primered
vehicles goes back to my hot rod days when a lot
of hot rods were just primered and not painted.
|Okay, it wasn't the prettiest bus at the open day,|
but it was a nice honest bus that looked cool. I
did like the Fuchs style wheels that suited the bus.
|Oh go on then, one last look at my 1969 VW|
microbus before I head into the grounds of Just
|Heading towards the show I got distracted by this|
lovely 1970 all white bug. This stock looking bug
really was clean and tidy.
|Another clean and tidy vehicle was this 1974|
white over baby blue late bay, named Jasper.
This bus was immaculate and that reflection in
the perfectly straight body panels was amazing.
|You can see just how clean and straight this bus|
was from this photo. The day visitor car park was
more like an unofficial show and shine display!
|This stock height 1970 white over blue bus was|
a good honest bus. I'm not sure what type of
conversion this was but it looked good with its
|Riding at stock height you will need a step, and|
this bus had a very cool step. I'm not sure if this
is original to the bus but it certainly looked the
|This really was a nice honest looking bus. The|
original steel wheels suited the bus and suit the
overall look of this old stocker.
|This gorgeous 1971 Karmann beetle looked|
amazing. This original Karmann had been restored
to a very high standard. The gloss black body
panels were all like new and the attention to
detail was amazing.
|It's only an original Karmann if it has the Karmann|
badge. the Karmann beetles were produced by
Karmann from 1949 - 1980.
|These lovely Porsche rims looked so nice on the|
old karmann and added just enough (extra) bling.
|The Karmann cabriolet is such a pretty car, and|
when they are this clean they are simply gorgeous.
|I am getting very fond of the T25 and this all white|
converted T25 panel van looked great. T25's
look best (in my humble opinion) left at stock
height as this one appears to be. I did like the
small roof rack over the cab which must come
in very handy.
|This 1984 converted camper ticked all the right|
boxes for me. I could easily have one of these,
especially if it was this clean and tidy.
|Okay, this is the last photo of my bus parked up|
at the Just Kampers open day in the glorious hot
|As I entered the show I walked past the 'For sale'|
area, so I just had to have a look. This lovely
1963 RHD beetle was an Australian import,
that had never been welded and still had the
|It is a small window body shell that still has the |
original interior and headlining. This old bug has
been converted to 12V and runs a 1776cc Remtec
type one engine that has just been run in.
|This stunning 1970 Westfalia campmobile was|
gorgeous. The bright Sierra Yellow paint had
been recently applied and looked amazing. This
bus is quite rare as it has early front arches and
'uber' rare rear arches.
|This old Westy has a strong 1600cc single port|
motor with late servo assisted brakes. It has the
complete Westfalia interior and it has never been
welded. All this plus so much more all the price of
£18,950 ($24,806 approx)
|This lovely 1972 Dormobile was another vehicle|
for sale. The side elevating roof and canvas have
been refurbished and replaced respectively. The
paintwork has recently been applied and looked
|This bus has many new parts including: window|
seals, brake hoses,shoes, lights and the head-
lining to name a few. The bus has a 1600cc
engine and was for sale for £11,950 ($15,600
|This super low all black Volksrod caught my eye|
as it was so different. This fenderless bug really
looked good without it's roof and with that chopped
|I did like the clean sleek look of this Volksrod,|
the headlights mounted down low added to the
|The smoothed out rear end continued the sleek|
look. You can see just how smooth and straight
the body is from this photo.
|Just a random photo looking into a small part|
of the camping area. The amount of people that
camped out was immense and something I will
have to think about doing next year.
|The majority (if not all of them) of JK staff do not|
just work at the VW parts supplier, but they are
also owners of some lovely Volkswagens. Here
is one of the 'staff cars'.
|Just to prove this gorgeous split oval bug does|
belong to a JK staff member.
|This really is a lovely stock looking car. The owner|
won't have any trouble getting parts for their ride.
all they have to do is walk into the JK warehouse!
