|This perfectly straight green and white 1967 split|
screen panel van ticked all the right boxes for me.
This old panel van was so straight and the paint
was so nice that it stood out amongst all the other
|This gorgeous van looked great with those lovely|
chrome Radar wheels. You can see just how
straight this old panel van was from this photo.
|Another split screen of 1967 vintage was this|
stunning red and white bus. The paint, or rather
the reflection in that gorgeous paint was incredible
as you can clearly see.
|The interior was just as immaculate as the exterior|
and had been restored to an amazing standard.
|This great one day show always attracts many|
fantastic varieties of Volkswagen, both air cooled
and water cooled.
|As I have previously mentioned this show attracts|
many show standard quality vehicles, including
this gorgeous 1966 gold beetle.
|Another beetle was this, err, I'm not sure what to|
call this... a rat rod? Anyway this car certainly
drew plenty of attention for being so radical.
|The fenderless satin black body with grey high|
lights looked like something you'd expect to see
in the Mad Max films.
|The dressed up engine suited the overall look|
of this radical rod.
|On a hot sunny Sunday afternoon the owner of|
this gorgeous white over blue split screen had
the right idea as he'd parked up in the shade
under some trees. This really was a lovely straight
bus as the reflection down the side shows.
|This lovely bus wasn't too flashy, it was just a good|
clean example of this iconic vehicle. I did like
that blue colour that looked great against the white
upper half of the body.
|A few of the traders at the show brought along|
some supercars as well as some classic air-
cooled VW's to promote their business.
|One of the supercars that drew plenty of attention|
was this Lamborghini Aventador, in a subtle under-
stated bright yellow colour. This carbon fibre bodied
car has a V12, 396 cubic inch engine that produces
|With all that power in a super light weight body|
the top speed of the Aventador is a mind blowing
220 MPH, so this is the view most of us better
get used to, as it's the view we'll only see as it
disappears into the distance!
|From the fastest vehicle to possibly the slowest|
at the show was this cool self built trike. I do like
the weird and wonderful creations some of the
owners come up with.
|Bay window buses at the Endless Summer VW|
show. My 1969 microbus on the left in the fore-
ground was in very good company with many
other lovely buses in the line up.
|The organisers had arranged for a band to|
play for most of the day to entertain the crowds,
which they certainly did. I didn't catch the name of
the band but they were good and interacted with
the crowds who enjoyed their performance.
|This guy was certainly enjoying the band, as I|
caught him dancing along to the band on the roof
of his bus!
|A gorgeous sunny afternoon, in a lovely location|
with an amazing array of quality Volkswagens,
what else could you possibly want for a great
day out with friends.
|A great day out, and a show that I always attend|
and a show that gets bigger and better year on
|The same fantastic variety as seen here in the|
split screen line up could also been seen in the
other models of Volkswagens at the show.
|Sat watching the band, I looked around and saw|
this lovely blue bug. I'm not sure why but I really
liked the look of this gorgeous bug. Maybe it
was the Fuchs style wheels against that lovely
blue paint, or maybe the slammed stance.
|Talking of beetles, there was several rows of|
bugs, and the various ages along with the looks
|This gorgeous mango and white splitty was|
stunning. It was obvious just looking at this lovely
bus that no expense has been spared to get it
to this standard.
|The overall finish of this mango bus was amazing|
and everything was perfect. The time and expense
it must have taken to get this bus to this high
standard must be immense.
|As you would expect the interior was finished to|
the same high standard. I don't know what wood
those units are made from but the grain in the
wood looked fantastic.
|On the roof of this lovely bus the owners had a|
colour coded tandem cycle. On the crossbar
the tandem it had the wording 'Splitty Support
|From one extreme to another was this lovely old|
split screen panel van. I've seen this van several
times and have photographed it every time. This
really is a lovely looking RAT van.
|I'm not sure why I like this van so much, but I think|
it's just the overall look that I like.
