Maybe next year's metal badge and fridge magnet can say 2020/21 for those like me that have them all lined up in date order!
I think both prudent and sensible to not run this year...it's lot of dosh to invest in a risky time...and who knows what life in Sept will look like...

Re: What's your favourite VW show?

For me things like Lavenham and Hessisch are places to really see and enjoy vintage air cooled
But for us Split Bus Nation in Belgium is just a great friendly low key meet for Split Bus enthusiasts ...

Re: Wonderland Classics... already repaired once!!

The dreaded concrete in the sills and front valence bodge - they discovered that on my 67 Devon in the 90s when it went for a resto and I had owned it since 1978 so it must have been done in early 70s...along with the flattened tin cans used on the lower rear corners!

The Comic Relief Beetle

Does anyone know the name of the couple who own the Red Nose Comic Relief Beetle? They have taken it to every Brighton Breeze since the first one and also own a split I think? I lost the bit of paper I wrote their names on at Brighton this year... :(
