|The Wolfsburg Bus Crew attended Volksworld|
with a great display of members vehicles. They
had a different display on both days, this is the
Sunday line up as seen from the balcony looking
out onto the winners enclosure.
|The first vehicle in the WBC line up was this '57|
slammed panel van owned by Dave. The bus is
originally from California where it was being used
as shop van for Marina Porsche.
|Dave's panel van proudly displays the WBC sticker.|
|This lovely ratty 1964 11 window bus is owned|
by Ken. The bus used to ferry parishioners to
the local church when it lived back in the U.S.
Ken's bus, named 'Moses' due to it's past life
has a 4" narrowed front beam.
|Another WBC bus that I don't know much about|
is this slammed RAT looking white over blue late
bay that belongs to Darren. This really was a cool
|WBC member Jim owns this lovely beige and|
white Westfalia. Unfortunately I don't much more
about this bus, which is a shame. I did however
like it's low stance and with what looks like a
narrowed front beam.
|Rich has kept the original Continental interior|
but added some modern twists to keep his
daughter entertained on those long journeys.
|Margo does look fresh and clean, I'm not sure|
if she had any welding done or not, but the new
coat of paint does wonders for her appearance.
|This lovely white split screen had been tastefully|
restored. I did like the black roof and the small
detail of colour coding the front VW emblem.
The Porsche rims suited the bus perfectly.
|The interior was amazing. It looked to be original|
and in very good condition, and totally period.
|Beetle's, Karmann's and a single cab split screen|
pick up, I did like the opening rear window on the
single cab and the subtle two tone paint job.
|This green beetle caught my eye, not only for|
the amazing colour, or it's low stance, and not
even for those cool looking yellow head lights,
but for the camber on those rear wheels !
|You have to love a split screen panel van.|
|Rows upon rows of quality beetle's, from every|
year and the good thing is, every one looked
different from the last.
|I spotted this Schwinn 'cruiser six' on a trade|
stand, and just had to get a photo... very retro.
|A lovely row of early bugs, with a very rusty 356|
Porsche just peeking out from behind the white
|A cool photo of just some of the cool beetle's|
at the Volksworld show.
|There were plenty more beetle's inside the show|
hall. So many bugs from different years and also
many different styles, and they all looked cool.
|The thing that caught my eye about this lovely|
old split screen wasn't the Sea blue ( I think)
paint, nor was it the amazing condition this old
bus was in, it was that reflection down the side
of the body, how straight is this bus?
|I do like to see something different and this lovely|
old oval window bug was that. I loved the overall
look of this rally spec bug.
|The big tyres and the hand painted number on|
the doors looked great, but I'm not sure a rag top
bug is ideal for rallying..?
|This must be beetle racing corner, as this light|
green beetle was also a race car. Again it was
an early oval and looked so good with it's steel
wheels, I wonder if the semaphore's still worked?
|This yellow rally spec beetle is a car I've seen|
before and I liked as much then as I do today.
The car is owned by 'Team Colorado' who take
part in historic rallies all over the country. The car
is sponsored by Just Kampers.
|If you want to find out more about this car, or Team|
Colorado you can find them on Facebook. Their
page is worth a visit if not for anything else but to
see their profile picture!
|The last racing bug in this corner of the show hall|
was this 1/4 mile racing beetle. The car has a bit
of a Herbie theme going on. I didn't find out much
about this car, but it does look pretty tough.
|The Volksworld Show has a fantastic diversity|
of air-cooled Volkswagen's on display, so no
matter what you like you'll be sure to find it.
|This orange metal flake Manx MK1 GP beach |
buggy looked awesome. I do like the MK1 GP
bodies especially when they are as nice as this.
|The unusual body colour worked really well, and|
the colour matched cloth bucket seats looked so
nice. The full harness will keep you in the seats
whilst having fun in the dunes.
|This 1962 SWB sidewinder buggy in gunmetal|
grey metal flake looked fantastic under the bright
show hall lights. The paint sparkled as you walked
past. This buggy has a 1641cc engine.
|To describe this bus as stunning, doesn't seem |
good enough for this early split screen bus. This
but really was built to perfection and was totally
|The interior was almost to nice, you couldn't head|
off to the beach with the kids and the dogs without
ruining that gorgeous interior. This has to be one
of the nicest split screen interiors that I have seen.
|Another splitty in similar colours, although this|
lovely 1954 23 window microbus bus wasn't quite
as shiny. It did however have the rag top which is
|This almost looking beetle with it's patina across|
the roof the top half of the body and wings looked
great. The slammed stance and the Porsche rims
also helped this lovely bug stand out.
|This lovely 1971 blue cross over bay looked|
great. I did like the single colour and the ride
height. With it's original wheels it looked so stock
and that'll do me nicely.
|I've seen this gold coloured 11 window split screen|
a few times, and each time I just have to get a
photo. This bus really does rock my boat!
