|This lovely Ratty 11 window bus belongs to Ken, |
who along with James organised this meet.
Ken's bus nicknamed the church bus as it used
to ferry people to the church in a previous life in
|This really is a RAT looking bus that looks great,|
the low stance is thanks to a 'Rustbox' 4.5" beam
and Ken describes his cool ride as 'Low and slow'.
|The owner of this lovely beast is Graham. The '67|
split screen panel van is running a 3.2 Porsche
Carrera motor with a 5 speed gearbox. The rear
beam is also from a Porsche.
|To help stop this van it has Porsche 911 discs on|
all four corners and twin 8" remote servo dual
circuit brakes.The engine pushes out around
230 BHP and I can confirm it sounds awesome.
|The inside of Graham's bus is a little sparse, but|
when you have a Porsche motor tucked under
the engine lid, it doesn't really matter!
|A nice Stella Artois bottle opener on Graham's|
van, I'm not sure why but I liked this !
|Alistair owns this cool 1978 Westfalia that was|
imported from California back in 2005. This is
Alistair's first Volkswagen and I think he's made
a good choice for his first bus.
|The bus has had a back to metal respray, and|
Alistair has a few minor modifications planned
that include lowering the bus a little and adding
some alloy wheels, but that is about it.
|This bus is not all show and no go, it has a big|
1776cc engine with electronic ignition, external
oil filter, deep sump and genuine Webber 44
carbs. It also has Porsche 944 disc brakes at
|The bespoke leather interior features a rock and|
roll bed, cupboard storage, full electrics and a
|This lovely 1978 Westfalia Champagne edition is|
owned by Rob. The lowered stance is thanks to
a 'French Slammer' beam with adjustable spring
|Those lovely wheels, which suit the bus so well|
are 17" Zender Stars. The motor is a pretty much
stock 2.0 litre with twin Webber carbs and a 123
|A close up of Rob's Zender Star wheels, these|
really are nice wheels that suited Rob's Westy.
|I'm not sure who this character was that was stuck|
to Rob's side window but it caught my eye!
|Julie's lovely 1978 Sage green (I think) Westfalia |
Berlin was super clean. Julie has had the bus for
about a year after seeing it at the Volksworld show.
The bus is a U.S. import with a 2 litre type 4 engine
and an automatic gearbox.
|My 1969 velvet green microbus all washed and|
polished. I recently refurbished my 3 bow roof-
rack, as I don't have a lot of room to store it, I
keep it on the bus all year round.
|I am so glad I chose the velvet green colour as I|
think it suits the bus. The deluxe trim is a newish
addition from Just Kampers which just breaks
up the green nicely.
|Robin wanted a walk through van and bought|
this 1965 van off E-bay without seeing it, and
although it needed more work than Robin wanted
he was happy as it was so original and even
had a full set of 5 wheels!
|The bus had the standard usual lower repairs|
and then was stripped and painted and detailed
with the 'Brumos Racing' decals. The van has an
adjustable beam, drop spindles, beetle IRS and
box with a 1600cc twin port engine.
