Rainy day dub

Photo of the week #83 – I spotted this 1970 daily driver in Banbury, while I was visiting an Auction House on Saturday morning so took a quick photo on my iPhone.  I used to drive an aircooled VW all year round in my younger days but, it became quite a challenge driving 40 miles to work in terrible weather. The VWs ended up being tucked away for the winter in favour of a good heating system , decent road holding and bright lights! I wonder how many people brave the winter in a beetle?

That’s all, Volks!

Some great photos from Volks ’n’ Roll on ‘a day at the races’…

Volks'n'Roll

Maybe this time i’ve gone too far: 158 photos in 1 post is just too much i think but it was almost impossible to separate them. I’ve tried (like i always do when it’s time to organize all the stuff i collect around) to find topics, stories, styles or whatever could let me divide the folder into different articles.

Volks'n'Roll

Forse questa volta ho esagerato: 158 foto in un articolo è davvero troppo credo  ma è stato impossibile separarle. Ho provato (come faccio sempre quando è il momento di organizzare tutta la roba che raccolgo in giro) a cercare argomenti, filoni, storie o qualsiasi cosa mi permettesse di dividere la cartella in sottogruppi differenti.

Volks'n'Roll

But after all i understood that it was not the right way to approach a coverage of an event like the Volks’n’Roll. It would be a mistake to try to close off something among the rest because…

’62 Sunroof

IMG_8571_1500x1000Photo of the week #79 – This beautiful cream 1962 Sunroof VW Beetle was for sale at this years Stanford Hall VW show. I love the whitewall tyres but, if this were mine, I think I would prefer to put the suspension back to standard height!

One careful owner

IMG_8552_1000x1500Photo of the week #73 – This one owner from new, 1972 Marina Blue Beetle was offered for sale at the Stanford Hall VW show this year. From what I can recall the only thing non original is that it has been fitted with day-mouldings, self-coloured fibreglass wings. Not too bad for forty years of careful ownership!

Snoval

Photo of the week #70 – I moved home last week to a small village near Brackley, and my poor old 1955 Oval Window VW Beetle had to spend a few days outside on the drive while we sorted out everything in the garage. With heavy snow-falls over most of last weekend, I think this may have been the worst weather that this old timer has faced since it’s been in this country – certainly since I’ve owned it! But as it originally came from Sweden, it may be a nice reminder of the weather it had to face when it started it’s life. This photograph was taken on my iPhone 5.

Two-tone ’72

IMG_6977_666x999Photo of the week #58 – Another shot from the Vintage Stony classic car show taken during the morning of new year’s day. A 1972 Beetle which was one of only two VW beetles that were on display in the town, among a sea of other marques.

Murtle

Photo of the week #55 – Another shot of Murtle, the very nice 1968 Karmann Ghia owned by Caz. Photographed outside Blenheim Palace in July this year. I might take my beetle along to this VW show next year if the weather’s nice.
