October already and Autumn is upon us, it’s a good job we did a load of our shoots back in the summer. Take our first feature bus, Dave Ellis’s stunning black T5 looks at home on the beach at sunset. Our second feature Andy Hall’s grey T4 and T4 trailer carries on the watery theme with a lovely lakeside shoot. If I’m honest, Stuart Clark’s white T5 shoot was way more industrial and a little overcast, luckily Stuart’s bus lights up the pictures. Our fourth feature is Derek Voak’s super cool off-road T4, shot at Penshurst Place in Kent on another overcast day. This bus would look cool at the bottom of a muddy puddle, which is exactly where we would have been, if only it had rained! Bus five…

one man’s vision

Back in February of 2018 Dave began a thorough search for the right base van. All the while keeping a close eye on a very well-known auction site, where he came across this Volkswagen T5 panel van. It was a short wheel-base, two litre, 140 bhp, 2012 model; and although he was aware that it would need some work in order to bring it up to the standard and finish that you see here, Dave was sure that this could well be the one. There were a lot of other interested parties willing to bid on this Transporter and with a few nice upgrades that had already been carried out, it is easy to understand why. Externally, Dave stumped up for a set of 20” BBS load-rated wheels with laser etched BBS…

quex park

The park was created between 1806 and 1813 by the late John Powell (1769-1849) and itself sits within the wider eighteen-hundred-acre estate of Birchington, Acol and Richborough in the borough of Thanet. This was the third year that Quex Park VW Show has taken place here and this year the temperatures were set to soar into thirty-degree heat on the Saturday and this made this show a truly hot one. The overriding vibe of this event was chilled and relaxed though, which made for a very pleasant atmosphere to hang out in and enjoy all things VW. There was an excellent mix of both classic air-cooled Volkswagens and plenty of later T4s and T5s. All of these models were well represented in the show and shine; that was held in the…
