We might head along too on Saturday afternoon if the weather is good - looking for a more stylish grill for the front!

We went along on Saturday to the final Volksfling to be held in August. From 2018 Volksfling will only be in May. To be honest, I don't think its too bad a decision as the Volksfling Mk2 was always much quieter than the May event, less traders, less show'n'shine etc, however it will be a shame to lose a local show and a wee day out. Hopefully it might mean the May event is even bigger in Biggar  Laughing

Here's a few pics from Saturday














And Mrs ST thinks she's found the solution to our new raised height Laughing


It will be a shame to lose this show, but we'll look forward to returning to Volksfling in May.

I still can't get used to a new Bug wearing Herbie's stripes and numbers - it just doesn't work for me!! Thanks for sharing- lovely oks like a nice variety of motors.

And only one Brazillian on Sunday and it was for sale.....https://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/17/79/43/83/20170810 - and the website image host insists on turning the poor vehicle on its side!!

That's the 08 plate that has the subaru engine.

There was another black 54 Brazilian for sale in the campsite, it looked very nice. It' advertised on gumtree - search Brazilian T2 camper in Falkirk. Surprisingly it's only in the next town from us and yet don't think we've ever seen it!

Sorry we missed you Buzz.

Always a few additions - hope Phileas is on good form. I am still on the hunt for a metal front grill like Skytiger but have not found one on e-bay - or in the spare parts bins at Biggar - any suggestions?

We have one that you are welcome to have, it will need a bit of work to take the old primer and paint off. We originally got it for our bus but then found a newer old stock grill that could be painted in the quicker timescale we needed!

Looks perfect - I will quite enjoy getting that stripped back and repainted. Would £30 be about right? When could I pick it up?
