|Matthew's 1969 SO42 blue and white westfalia|
parked next to my velvet green and white 1969
microbus under the Wolfsburg Bus Crew banner.
|I'm not saying the Slough is a rough place, but|
this family hatchback was left in the leisure centre
car park overnight.!!!
|Clear blue skies and sunshine (albeit very cold)|
and a car park crammed full of Volkswagens
finest air-cooled vehicles.
|This ratty Ford Prefect 100E had been slammed|
on the deck, the original 1172cc front mounted
side valve engine had been removed and an air-
cooled motor mounted in the back.
|A great diversity of vehicles in the car park.|
|I don't know much about the Austin Allegro, but|
I'm assuming because it was parked close to
that Ford 100E (above) that this has had an air-
|The Allegro had been hit with the lowering stick,|
and that huge exhaust strengthens my thought
about having an air-cooled engine.
|The leisure centre was full of quality Volkswagens|
of all descriptions.
|It doesn't always have to painted and shiny to|
|A cool Moon decal on these centre caps.|
|This gorgeous 1950's dark green Karmann Ghia|
was immaculate. I do like these KG's especially
when they are this clean.
|You can see just how clean and straight this old|
Karmann really is from this photo.
|To show just how clean and straight this car was,|
this is the reflection from the gorgeous green paint
on the engine lid.
|A lovely 1964 Karmann Ghia and a 1967 beetle|
parked up in the sunshine at the swapmeet.
|I did like the overall look of this old '67, the all|
white body colour against all that chrome looked
|Buses of all types and ride heights all parked up|
at the swapmeet. There really was a great diversity
of air-cooled vehicles.
|This lovely 1970 early bay panel van caught my|
eye. I loved the colour, which looked very similar
to the colour of my bus, and the ride height and
not to mention that awesome full length roof rack.
|Just look at the reflection on the sides of this|
lovely van, it really was perfectly straight.
|Another vehicle that caught my eye was this lovely|
1973 single cab pick up. This was another vehicle
that was incredibly straight and clean.
|This really was a lovely example of this utility|
|The Slough swapmeet car park with awsome |
air-cooled Volkswagens everywhere.
|Rows and rows of Volkswagen buses, what a|
great way to spend a sunny Sunday in November.
|This gorgeous 1970 imported deluxe bus was |
really nice. It really was so clean and straight.
|I spotted this bright green 1986 T25 panel van|
and just had to go and have a look. I do like the
high riding stance and the all terrain tyres.
|I'm really getting into the high riding go anywhere|
overland look and this old transporter van looked
just right. I did like that huge off road wheel / tyre
on the back.
|Split screen buses galore adorned the leisure|
centre car park.
|One of those buses was this 1972 Brazilian bus|
that was originally purchased by Maney's grandad.
It has a 1641cc engine, and adjustable front beam,
a rear IRS and a beetle gearbox. Maney still has
the 'Run the Ring' tickers on his doors.
|This lovely patina'd 21 window looked good with |
it's original faded paint, lowered stance and that
narrowed front beam.
|Another bus with plenty of patina was this lovely|
white over blue 11 window. I liked the rusty front
bumper that almost looked as though it was made
|Here is a bus I recognised, it's Claude's 1960|
|A great variety of air cooled vehicles on display|
in the leisure centre car park that doubles as
the Slough Swapmeet.
|A lovely 1964 RAT look bus that had so many|
accessories, additions and stickers. I did like
the old rope tied around the towel rail bumper.
|You can make your own cation for this photo..!|
|Even in Slough on a cold winters day you still|
have to cruise around and look cool.
|This bright orange late bay looked nice and solid.|
I'm not sure what that is on the rear side panel..?
|A lovely reflection of the green 1986 T25 I liked|
so much in the chrome bumper of a classic air
cooled vehicle (I've actually forgotten what the
vehicle was !)
|This lovely original 1950's oval window beetle|
looked great with it's patina that covered the
whole of the body.
|This really was a lovely looking bug. I loved the|
original wheel trims and white wall tyres.
|Another high T25 transporter van, I love those big |
off road wheels and tyres. This 1985 van really
did look as though it could go anywhere.
|This immaculate bright yellow and white 1967|
11 window shone in the bright winter sun.This
bus really was straight and clean.
|Two yellow and white buses stand out against|
the clear blue winter sky.
|Early bay window buses, which would you have?|
The 1972 beige bay belongs to a mate of mine
|Another 1972 VDub was this lovely all white bug|
names, Gloria. I don't know much about this nice
bug except for that's it's very clean. The whitewall
tyres suited the overall look.
|This lovely type 34 Karmann Ghia looked great,|
These are more commonly know as the Razor-
edge and at the time was the most expensive
car made by Volkswagen.
|The razoredge has such a beautiful body shape|
that is timeless. The type 34 was produced from
1962 - 1969 and it is believed that only about
1500 - 2000 of the original 43,000 produced
|This gorgeous 1950's Karman Ghia was so nice,|
I loved the colour, the colour coded wheels with
the white wall tyres, the ride height.. everything
|I especially liked the air scoop on the engine lid,|
which could mean only one thing, a rare Judson
|And to confirm my suspicion, this lovely old KG|
had an original badge on the deck lid.
|This stunning oval window looked great in its all|
black colour scheme. I did like those yellow head
lights and the single spot light that just make this
car stand out.
