|Whether you like your split screen, (or any other|
Volkswagen come to think about it) standard
looking and riding at stock height, or slammed
with the RAT look, you'll be sure to find it at this
great one day show.
|The slammed RAT look 15 window bus caught|
my eye as it looked pretty cool. It looks like it
has a narrowed front beam as the front wheels
are tucked right under the cab.
|The interior was also stock looking with a hint|
of the RAT look about it.
|The faded paint was probably the original paint|
and was showing just the right amount of patina.
You can see just how low this old bus really was
and how narrow that front beam was from this
|The interior was pretty bare, which meant you|
could see how solid the body panels really were
even if they did have a light coat of surface rust.
|On the other end of the looks scale was this|
stunning green over white (or maybe it was a very
light green?) split screen. This bus was totally
|The paint was flawless and in this photo the|
bottom colour looks like it has a green hint.. This
really was a lovely bus.
|On the tailgate this old bus had some super cool|
pinstriping in dark green to match the top half of
|Inside the bus it still had the original interior with|
re-upholstered side cards and cushions.
|This lovely white over deep red 1966 type 1 is|
an American import (like my microbus) and
when it left the factory in Hanover it had a
Westfalia camper conversion. The bus has been
named 'ruby' for obvious reasons.!
|Ruby was in good company at the show with|
plenty of other type 1 split screens on display.
|Inside Ruby, the Westfalia SO42 interior has |
been restored to a very high standard.
|Regular readers will know that I like panel vans,|
and this early sign written split screen ticked all
the right boxes. The colour, the patina on the roof,
the sign written sides and the general look made
this old panel van stand out.
|This gorgeous 1967 split was lovely. I did like the|
yellow head light lenses that contrasted the off
white body colour. The standard wheels and the
twin roof racks added to the overall look.
|The interior was just as nice as the outside. I'm|
not sure what conversion this is, but it looked to
be complete and in amazing condition. The sun
canopy looked fantastic.
|You can see just how low this RAT look '67 really|
is from this photo. You can also see the patina
that was all over this cool bus.
|There were numerous catering vendors at the|
show to cater for most tastes including this cool
late bay panel van that was converted into a
mobile bar serving ice cold beer!.
|Talking of bay window buses, there were several|
rows of 'bays' of all descriptions and years.
|This photo shows the diversity of Volkswagens|
at the Endless Summer show. The reflection in
the yellow late bay give a perfect reflection of
back of the split screen.
|This lovely 1971 Dormobile was stunning. The|
blue and white colour scheme suited the look
of this bus perfectly. The matching white Empi
5 spoke wheels matched the canvas of the pop
top, and bumpers perfectly.
|This lovely 1971 Adventurewagon late bay was |
parked up behind me, so I just had to get some
photos. I do like these high top buses, that have
so much more room than the tin top.
|You can see just how much more room you have|
in a high top compared to my tin top. A few years
ago these high top buses were not very popular
but they are becoming sought after now, personally
I love them especially when they are this clean.
|The Endless Summer show is a very relaxed one|
day show, and if the sun shines it's perfect for
just chilling out with your friends.
|I spotted this lovely light blue and white late bay |
enter the show towing this fantastic looking highly
polished trailer. It reminded me of an old U.S.
Airstream trailer so I just had to go and have a look.
|The interior was amazing and finished to a very|
high standard that looked so comfortable.
|You can see the size of this compact yet very|
stylish trailer. It is made by a U.K. company
called 'Rocket Caravans.com'
|The weather was glorious, the venue was perfect|
and the hundreds upon hundreds of Volkswagens
that attended this show were amazing.
|This 1969 early bay finished in what looks like|
Kansas beige (?) looked like a nice straight and
solid bus. The narrowed front beam looked cool
as did the full length roof rack.
|The variety and quality of the vehicles that came|
to this show was amazing. There really is some-
thing for everyone at this great show.
|This red 1970, possibly a Westy, looked great|
riding at what looks like stock height. This bus
looked to be pretty much original and very solid.
|This stunning Sage green (I think) and white|
late bay was immaculate. The perfectly straight
body was covered in a flawless coat of paint
as the reflections show.
|This lovely bay was riding at stock height which|
is becoming popular now. This bus really was
so clean and almost like new.
|This '67 Savanna beige early bay looked nice.|
The slightly lowered stance with those cool
Cosmic wheels helped this old bus stand out.
