It’s always nice to take my beetle somewhere new and last Friday I went along the the first Volkswagen gathering at Jacks Hill Cafe in Towcester. They already hold regular Bike, Hot-Rod and Classic Car meetings at the Cafe so I guess a regular VW meeting, on the 4th Friday of each month will fit right in. It’s only up the road from me too, very handy!
As it was Silverstone Grand Prix weekend I took the back roads to avoid the heavy traffic and as you can see from the pictures the weather was pretty bad, so not too promising for the first meeting. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve got used to taking pictures with grey skies but I managed to get a few pictures even with the light failing fast. Hopefully with better weather and no Grand Prix traffic there may be a few more VWs next month.
Photo of the week #67 – I spent last Saturday in Towcester and spotted this 1957 right hand drive oval-window beetle parked up at the side of the road. Original, Early, Right hand drive, UK-supplied Volkswagens are now few and far between and this early example looked fairly original, apart from being a bit closer to the ground on some polished Empie 5s! This shot was taken on my iPhone 5.
