Instead let me bring you V Dubs in the Avenue, a celebration of vintage VWs in our own front garden.
Yes, we are those neighbours, the ones with a drive full of vehicles in varying states of road worthiness.
There's Ebbie, our 1970 Type 4 411 LE Variant, believed to be one of only 200 left on the road in the UK. She passed her MOT this morning so here's to another year of motoring.
|WEARING: 1970s German-made psychedelic maxi (Gem's Bits n Bobs @ Stockport's Vintage Village), 1930s Liberty, London silk scarf & Indian tribal pendant (car boot sales)|
Next to Gilbert (our faithful T25) is a 1969 VW T2 camper, apparently a much sought after "low light" model. She's awaiting work (unless Jon gets an offer he can't refuse!) There's a third campervan in a friend's garage, what is he like? He collects vehicles like I do maxi dresses.
Bertie Blue is our workhorse. He takes us and the Kinky stock to vintage fairs up and down the country. Not much of a looker but roomy, reliable and cheap to run.
This zippy little white cabriolet is a 1984 Golf MK1 Karmann GTi. Considered a classic these days, he's looking for a good home (Find him HERE).
Not one of these is my ride. I can't drive! I've had 15 lessons in my life. I'm brilliant at parallel parking and three point turns but get me on the open road and I'm a danger to society, clipping kerbs & driving over roundabouts, screeching to a halt at pedestrian crossings causing mass panic amongst the public.
Trust me, I'm much safer in the passenger seat.
See you soon!
