Severn Valley Railway Classic Car Day

Severn Valley Railway Classic Car Day 2014

The Severn Valley classic car day is like no other show I have come across; it's a laid back day with a format of its own. Each of the six stations along the steam railway has classic cars in the car park & on the station concourse, the main station at Kidderminster has the years chosen theme i.e. 1940,s , commercial,  Jaguar etc.
As an entrant you get a discount rail ticket for the day to ride the steam trains and dogs are welcome on the trains so long as they have a ticket.
The trains run about every half hour so you have time to look at all the cars & bikes at each station as well as the trains and rail way memorabilia before boarding again to go to the next station.
The scenery is outstanding with the railway running past the safari park and along the bank of the River Severn. The show is pre booked ticket only and is always over subscribed.

Classics on the Common 2014

Classics on the common, Harpenden

For one afternoon each year Harpenden Common is transformed into Britain’s biggest midweek classic car show. The event is open to any classic vehicle over 20 years old (cars or other 4 wheeler, motorbikes and scooters) where entrance is by ticket only and limited to 1050 vehicles. Entrance for spectators is free and the event this year saw over 10,000 visitors admiring the huge variety of vehicles on display.

This year the St Albans Splitties were lucky enough to acquire entrance tickets. The weather was glorious, the Splitties were polished and the cakes were baked (Lemon Drizzle and Chocolate Chip) so we headed over to Harpenden for 2pm. Even the journey there was adorned with beautiful classic vehicles -we were in for a good afternoon.

Our Lazy Day Show 2013

Our Lazy Day Show 2013

16 June 2013, Black Horse Pub, Great Missenden, HP16 9AX

The Wolfsburg Weed Huggers from South Buckinghamshire held their second annual Lazy Day on 16th June, and took it from an informal meet and BBQ in a local pub to a full-on VW show with all the trimmings!
It being a Lazy Day, the emphasis was on having a chilled out, easy time. Glenn spun some cool Summertime choons for people to relax to, whilst they perused some awesome VW’s in the show ‘n’ shine.  If you rocked up in something air-cooled, classic or just cool you were automatically entered and had a shot at the prizes from Aircooled Accessories.

Hessisch Oldendorf 2013

June 2013,Hessisch Oldendorf in Northern Germany

Beautiful medieval Hessisch Oldendorf in Northern Germany has become famous in the VW world as THE place for vintage Volkswagens & coachbuilts. Its VW festival alternates every two years with Bad Camberg’s much smaller one further South, and attracts visitors and famous faces from the VW scene from all over the world.
The show takes over the whole town of Hessisch – the pedestrianised town centre is given over to classic Wolfsburg tin for the 3 days with each street or square given over to a particular era, marque or vehicle, and the locals join in the spirit by filling their shop windows with VW memorabilia. It’s a busy show, the streets are packed, hotels are rammed and street food vendors and pubs do a roaring trade.

Rows and rows of classic Wolfsburg tin - gorgeous A pair of very rare Papler 4-door cabrios, used mostly by the Austrian Police.    The VW38 next to the recent VW-built replica of the pre-beetle prototype, and the Berlin-Rome racer! A few of the 16 Schwimmers in attendance
