Volksworld 2017

Volksworld for the uninitiated is the first big UK Volkswagen show of the year. It is the time when people unveil their shiny over winter projects and the time everyone gets out their van and beetles and other assorted Volkswagens out and shows them off to other people who like similar things 😀

There were a few people selling stuff too…from vehicles to teeny little unidentifiable engine bits… (yes…I know they are identifiable by some people…or any people with the right book but shh)

We trundled over in the the van in the morning, parked up and made a cup of coffee…this is the extremely civilised thing about taking a little house with you when you go places!!

Unusually for me, I forgot to take a picture of the van in-situ so to set the scene it was in a carpark, but it was a neat grassy carpark and it was full of really cool vans some similar to ours some not.

We eventually left the car park and headed into the show 🙂 I do have some pictures of the things we saw…

First the T25s (for those of you who don’t know…this is the type of van the little red van is, and thus awesome!):

next a sample of the rest of the show… I *may* have taken a picture of (almost) all of the T25s and only a few of the rest but shhh…there were a lot, I had to chose my favourites!

I was also slightly taken with the “rat look” vans, these are ones with preserved rust and patina. So any you see which appear rusty are supposed to look like that!

NB: I am not that taken with the faux-tina rat look vans, which is ones that have paint on patina and fake rust…some of it is just a little too try-hard-y in my opinion… but each to their own I suppose.

All in all it was a fun ad-van-ture and I can tell you that the ice-cream van pictured in the non-T25 section, is not only an original ice cream van, which is awesome, but it sells very nice ice-cream! 😀
