Came Raining VW

The much anticipated annual VW day was held last weekend.
Aficionados and enthusiast alike came to celebrate…
… and so did the rains!
Nonetheless the outpour of affection for Vdubs,
wasn’t dampened at all by the downpour.

The songs of ‘The Beatles’ were playing full blast on that event!
We were literally ‘singing in the rain’. I saw some were ‘dancing’ as well!

View from the grandstand (shelter from the rains)

My fav on that day were:
 A VW T34 ‘Razor’
Pale mocha Karmann Cabrio

Australian VW buggy side by side with a VW Sakbayan,.. Military VW Thing round up the box theme!
 Pair of Fastbacks: early and late model
Green early VW T2 Kombi







Crewcab VW T1



Panel van VW T2


Showering VW style:
From parade grounds of previous show winners.
550 replica
 VW Thing

Other forms of air-cooled joined in!

Vintage scooters

Lambretta

I just love that Crewcab! ;)
It looks like a nice event, despite the weather.

Cheers,

Hi Maarten,
The Crewcab looks like the series from JL :-) I too love the yellow and red combination. Rain or shine, the enthusiasts were happy to celebrate, so did I :-)
