|Another gorgeous vehicle I spotted in the camping|
area was this light gold coloured 1969 Karmann
Ghia. This old KG has been seriously hit with the
|You can see just how low this KG really was from|
this side profile photo.
|Not a very good photo due to the reflection, but|
you can just make out how clean and original
looking the interior was.
|The Karmann Ghia is such a beautiful shaped|
car, it has a timeless beauty about it.
|This T3 Variant (squareback) was also of 1969|
vintage and equally as clean as the KG (above).
I do like these Variants, as there aren't that many
around, compared to buses and bugs.
|This really was a lovely example of the type 3.|
These variants, along with the notch and fastback
models were produced from 1961 - 1973.
|The campsite was full of camper vans of all|
descriptions, and even had this camper van
shaped early bay tent.!
|This super clean 1969 imported bay looked |
gorgeous. I did like the colour which really stood
out in the morning sunshine.
|The side markers denote that it is a later bus,|
but maybe the owner just prefers the marker lights
rather than the reflectors, it doesn't really matter
as it looked fantastic.
|The stunning gold coloured oval window bug|
looked amazing, it was so straight and clean..
oh, and so low!
|You can see just how low this early oval really|
is from this photo. The top of the wings are just
starting to show signs of patina
|The oval window bugs are such lovely looking|
cars, and when they sit this low and are running
on Porsche rims they just look so much better.
|This lovely mid sixties split screen caught my|
eye, maybe it was the two tone colour, maybe
it was those lovely Fuchs style wheels or maybe
because it was just because it looked so clean.
|This stunning bright red 1970 bay looked great|
in the sunshine. This slammed bus was painted
in the single red colour, including the roof and it
|Talking of slammed vehicles, how about this|
yellow 1970 bug. This bug has a slight RAT look
and the body was virtually sat on the grass.
|Another slammed bug was this pure RAT look|
1970 two tone bug. If you like the RAT look then
you'll love this patina'd bug. I did like the overall
look of this bug.
|The roof rack and rear screen blind were neat|
touches that suited the look. The camber of the
rear banded wheels show you how much this old
bug has been lowered.
|This lovely white 1971 bug has also been lowered|
but not to the extent to the two above. The banded
black steel wheels with chrome caps and white wall
tyres looked the perfect choice to compliment the
overall look of this lovely bug.
|This 1967 splitty caught my eye, as it gave off|
a glow in the bright sunshine. The two tone lime
green and bright green paint is a very unusual
choice of colours, but they actually look good
|The bright lime green bumpers and the Fuchs|
wheels add to this buses cool appearance.
|This 1969 beige bay also caught my eye as it|
just looked so clean and tidy. This deluxe bus
looks like an import which means it should also
|The old '69 deluxe had some lovely retro curtains|
that suited the buses overall look.
|A pair of blue bays parked up nose to nose at|
Bug Jam. A clean 1977 late bay and an early
bay with a slammed, nose in the weeds stance.
|This cool graffiti painted 1965 split screen stood |
out parked up in the camping area. The name of
the game is be different and this colourful bus
was certainly that.
|Wandering around the campsite, the place was|
full of Volkswagen's of all descriptions.
|If you like the rust / patina look then you'll love|
the look of this 1973 late bay.
|The T25's were very well represented at the Bug|
Jam festival. These 2 caught my eye as although
they are both T25's, they look so different.
|This 1970 Dormobile looked like a good honest|
bus, what you see is what you get. Yes it had
signs of a hard life but it was on the road and at
Bug Jam, and that's all that matters.
|Miss White has a 1641cc engine and the car|
has been built mostly by Jonny. It's a shame the
diff broke as it would have been good to see how
fast all Jonny's hard work would have been.
|On the front bumper this old bus had stickers|
from various European countries that I assume
this bus has visited. If I'm right then this is one
well travelled bus. !
|A lowered split screen panel van and a stock|
height early bay parked up end to end at Bug
Jam. It doesn't matter what type of VW you have,
it's about coming together for a fantastic weekend.
|Just trying to be artistic with this shot.. The variety|
of vehicles at the show was amazing.
|The blue early panel van looked to have some|
fire damage on the rear quarter and engine lid,
and rather than repair and paint the effected
areas it looks as though the owner has just left
it, which does look cool.
|Another attempt at being artistic... a '71 tin top|
and a '73 pop top.
|I've seen this very cool looking surf themed split|
screen on several occasions and every time I see
it I think, oh yeah, I like that!
|I have a 'thing' for sign written buses and this|
bus has plenty of hand painted signage to grab
my attention, it also just happens to be painted in
my favourite colour.
