Photo of the week #50 – This Split screen VW Autobot pick-up looks like it’s been through a battle or two in its life time! Not much of a disguise for a robot though if you’re going to stick the Transformers logo on the front!
Photo of the week #46 – I’m a bit of a sucker for original patina on a VW and, as I’ve said before, my favourite type two has to be a nice single-cab pick up. So, apart from the lowering, this one in original paint ticks all the boxes for me!
Photo of the week #29 – I think that out of all the type 2 splitscreen models, the single-cab pickup has to be one of my favourites. Usually commercial VWs feature more subtle, solid-colour schemes such as dove blue, or velvet green but this red and cream one, pictured at the REME show last year, really stands out from the crowd!
More of my pictures from this show…
I’ve had the idea for this photograph for a while now so I decided to purchase a Bandai tin-plate VW pick up and a model drum kit and give it a try. I’d love to have a go at doing this for real one day, perhaps with some members of a brass band in the back instead of a drum kit!
Photo of the week #16 – A rare Volkswagen Type 2 split screen cherry picker. These were a special option available for order directly from Volkswagen. Based on the Single-cab pick up M118 (no drop gates), the SO8 features a Ruthmann-Steiger Hydraulic lifting arm and bucket model V90 and cost about double the price of the basic single- cab pick up.
