There has been a distinct lack of the VW scene in the dub household this year. We did go to the show at Stanford Hall in May, but nothing since. At the weekend, particularly given the fantastic weather, we decided to go the Brighton Breeze. Its one of the last shows of the season and all the vehicles line up along the seafront. We have been before in 2009 and always wanted to go back. For pedestrians like us it is free, took a picnic and only cost us our petrol. Here are some photos.
Brighton was glorious in the brilliant sunshine.
Check out this cute little caravan being towed by a camper.
Beloved and I loved the tiki inspired artwork on the bonnet and the fake wood detail on the sides of this beetle.
There is always at least one 'Herbie' beetle at any given VW show.
Great paintwork on the front of this van.
I love beetle cabriolets and this was the perfect weather for them.
Vans were the vast majority of vehicles present at the show, this seems to the norm at the moment in the VW scene. Everyone wants a camper van = extortionate prices!
We all agreed on the paint job on this van - very cool.
This was one of my favourites.
Beloved was smitten with this van - bit too 'bling' for me if you know what I mean.
Beloved was also taken with these 'chopper' style bikes, the one on the left particularly as parts of the bike were painted to look like wood. dont fancy the set on the bike on the right!
This bike got a lot of attention from everyone. In all a good show and I think one of the highest turnouts of vehicle, in large part due to the weather, although it would cost you £40 to show your vehicle! If you click on the photos you will get greater detail.
