|To start this weeks blog we have this gorgeous|
1970 lowered bug. This really was a lovely looking
car, I loved the orange / brown sides that reminded
me of a old 'Woody'. The black powder coated
bumpers and head light rings looked just perfect.
|You can see just how low this bug sits from this|
photo. I'm not sure if this had air ride suspension
or not, but I'd imagine so. The all red rear light
lenses were a nice touch.
|Not a very good photo due to the reflection in|
the glass, but you can just make out how nice this
old bug was on the inside.
|The glove box had a nice hand painted design|
on it, which looked cool. I did like the orange
colour matched steering wheel/ door cards.
|This orange 1971 beetle looked as though it had|
suffered from some fire damage, and rather than
repaint the car the owner has left it. Although it
looks pretty cool, it is a stark warning to all air
cooled owners to check the fuel lines regularly.
|Fire damaged or not this is a cool looking bug.|
It has been slammed and looks as though it has
a narrowed front beam. This car really does sit
|How narrow is that front beam? I do like the look|
of early bugs and this one was no exception.
|Just one of the many rows of beetle's in the show|
and shine line up at Bug Jam.
|This red RAT look bug looked cool with it's sign|
written doors, the red coloured body with different
coloured front wings looked col. I did like the
Porsche 356 style head light grilles and
the unusual wheel choice.
|This old RAT look bug had some neat marker|
lights on the bumper.
|This really was a cool looking car. I did like the|
frenched rear lights that give the rear end a very
unique '70's hot rod look that stood out.
|Lovely hand painted Mooneyes decals on the|
doors, made this old bug something special.
|The quantity, and quality of the beetles on show|
was amazing. Each bug was different from the
last and the amount of time and money that the
owners must spend on them must be huge.
|This immaculate cream coloured early bug was|
gorgeous. I loved the style of this lowered bug,
and those red painted steel wheels with white
wall tyres gave the car an old skool look. The
single central spotlight on the bumper looked
|The red banded rear wheels perfectly matched|
the all red light lenses and the engine tinware.
You can see just how clean this car was from this
|The engine and engine bay were also immaculate|
and parts were either painted or chromed.
|The owner has paid the same attention to detail|
inside the car as well. This really did look nice
with its matching seats and door cards.
|This 1953 RHD oval window bug was one of my|
favourites in the beetle line up. OK it's not a show
winner, by any standard but it had a look all of its
own and I loved it. The '53 body actually sits on a
'56 fully restored chassis.
|The body had been shot blasted to remove any|
filler and rust, but that has left the scars of a hard
life, but that just adds to the cars character.
|More scars on show from a poor repair, but this|
just added to this unique's car character.
|The car still has the original split case gearbox,|
and front beam. The engine is a 1966 1300cc
unit. This lovely old car was for sale for the
bargain price of £5500 ($7360 approx)
|I did like the overall look of this old oval window,|
OK it was showing its age, and it had repaired
in numerous places but that didn't matter one bit.
|Another row of quality beetles all washed and|
polished for the show and shine.
|After walking along all the rows of Beetles, I came|
across the split screen buses. Again there were
so many quality buses in the numerous rows.
|This is one split screen that has featured a few|
times on my blog reviews, and no doubt will again
in the future. It's a 1957 Californian panel van and
belongs to a Wolfsburg Bus Crew member Dave
|The bus sits low thanks to a fully remote hydraulic|
suspension system. The engine and gearbox
have both been raised to allow the chassis to sit
on the floor when the suspension is fully lowered.
|Dave says the engine is a '1956cc unit with all|
the goodies', It did look very clean and tidy and
not a sign of an oil leak anywhere!
|On the inside of Dave's lovely panel van he has|
installed a rock and roll bed, and enough storage
space and home comforts for a week away.
