Thank you, thank you, thank you, and FUCCCCKKKKKKK, how did I miss that? That's more like it, really refreshing, genuine VW born and bred peeps, hanging out, beautiful cars, simply stunning.
Much respect to all.
Next year.
Seriously kicking myself, especially as my pal went as well.......

The vans, the beer and the friends that's what its all about, I hate the pedallers trying to force us into buying/wearing/using what should be cool on the scene!! That is all!

Here's another gripe, in the recent months I've been scouring shows, websites, forums, buying bits n pieces, as we do....
Met this old boy at a recent show, possibly field of dreams in York, The old boy who spoke with me for ages about his rebuilt 64/65 can remember tbh, but seemed nice enough, then when I spotted some bits I wanted, only a cargo door lock and some dashboard knobs, convinced me they were all working ok, only to find out after arriving home, the lock couldn't have been more crap and jammed solid, and the threads the wrong size on the knobs ... Annoying or what...
Just be honest, only cost me about £25 but not the point....
I sold the lock as scrap for £5, people appreciated the honesty.

Here's one, you have something for sale, you advertise it for said price, someone offers you half the price you've posted for half of the items.....
Sounds reasonable I thought....
Nope, got asked for nearly 85% of original asking price for two, for just one!
Go figure.!
I thought karma was my friend I'm always doing people favours, giving away stuff for free even, scenes definitely changed.

What gets my goat is swearing on the family forum. Some people should know better.
