|Another random photo looking across the back|
of an early bug towards the campsite. The amount
of people, and vehicles that camped over for the
weekend was incredible and something I shall
definitely look at doing next year.
|A better look at the early bug that I was looking |
across in the above photo. This original looking
beetle, although it had a few knocks really did
|The baby blue body looked as though it was the|
original paint and holding up well. The luggage
rack was cool as were all the period accessories.
|Again looking into another part of the camping|
area, this time looking across the front of a very
clean lilac and white late bay.
|The 1974 lilac and white bay did look so clean|
and tidy with it's unusual colour combination.
|This 1978 bay was cool with all it's accessories.|
The steel mesh sun visor, clear front indicator
lenses, two bow roof rack and roof ladder all
helped to make this bus stand out.
|This really was a lovely clean bus. The tube rear|
bumper helped this bus to be different from all
the other bays at the show.
|This 1969 light blue bug was gorgeous. The pastel|
blue colour suited this old bug and made the
whole car look so crisp and clean. The BRM (I
think) wheels also suited the overall look.
|You can see just how clean this old '69 was from|
this photo. The car looks to be pretty much stock
and that helped to make it stand out.
|This old '72 really did look a good honest bus,|
with plenty of character.
|I bet the first thing you noticed about this 1971|
white over sky blue bay was those amazing
electric blue tinted windows, as that's the first
thing I noticed whilst walking around the show.
|Without the reflection of the clouds you can see|
the true colour of the windows. This really was a
lovely clean bay that may have been a Devon
conversion..(?) that had been slightly lowered.
|The two bow roof rack over the cab looked cool|
as did the chrome air vent grille.
|This gorgeous 1966 21 window samba deluxe |
was simply stunning. The perfectly straight body
panels gave off an almost perfect reflection as
you can see.
|The matching interior was finished to the same|
high standard as the outside. This bus is so
clean I'd be afraid to use it!
|That lovely old green Coca Cola cool box was|
a neat accessory that suited the bus perfectly,
as did the green vinyl covered seats.
|There were numerous caterers there that catered|
for most tastes, including mine! The white and
peppermint green split screen was selling ice
creams and the Airstream trailer in the background
sold burgers and hot dogs etc.
|As I sat in the shade to escape the burning sun-|
shine I kept looking at the Airstream trailer, I wasn't
sure why until I noticed the 'Ice Cold Beer' sign
then I knew why!!
|This lovely old split screen crew cab had had|
the rear bed converted into a pizza oven. I didn't
try one of their pizza's but they did look and smell
|Colin and Heather Maddox are the couple taking|
on this crazy adventure. I had a good chat to
Colin and he was saying that there will be no back
up vehicles, no GPS systems, no breakdown cover
and only a limited number of spares, donated by
