It’s all too easy to gloss over the amount of work that goes into restoring, modifying and maintaining an old Volkswagen. Heck, we’re as guilty of that as anyone, perhaps even more so, because when we cover off the months, or even years of welding and bodywork that’s gone into a feature vehicle in a simple paragraph, it doesn’t tell the full story or do the owner/builder justice. Just stop for a moment and take a look at the vehicle here. Do you recognise it? You should, because it’s this month’s cover star, or at least it was, because this is what it looked like when it first came into the country. Quite a transformation, wouldn’t you agree? Even if you’re of the ‘if it’s not painted it’s not worthy’ persuasion,…

PICNIC ESSENTIALS Okay, so there’s a morning chill and the nights are starting to draw in but there’s still plenty of left time to camp and we all like a picnic, right? Even better if you turn up prepared with suitably chilled drinks and snacks, somewhere to sit and of course a bottle opener! Clearly the good folk at Heritage feel the same when it comes to alfresco dining as they’ve put together a range that not only covers all of the above, but is endorsed by your favourite German vehicle manufacturer – Porsche, no we mean VW of course! Yep! Genuine VW camping chairs and thermal flasks, who’d have thought it?

Forget all that Brexit malarkey. There’s really only one debate worth discussing… Which side of the fence are you on when it comes to the subject of paint or patina? Some people can’t get their head round it, whilst others totally flip out over thin, factory, sun-scorched paint. You either get it or you don’t, and you never will. One man who clearly does get it is Jonathan Willows, or Wilf as he’s generally known to one and all. Neither of which are names we’ve heard for a long time, but still rang a bell all the same whilst arranging this feature. “The plan was to paint it…” You see, it turns out that Wilf has owned a previous feature vehicle of ours, an Elm Green tin-top Westy featured in our July 2012…

In the most unlikely of places? If you’re into your vintage VWs then there’s nothing even remotely unlikely about EMPI. In fact, it’s probably the first name you’d think of for your tuning and improving parts, if you were cruising around So-Cal circa 1963. Their famous globe logo is still a familiar site at every show you care to attend today, be it a sticker in a window or used to describe a snide copy of EMPI’s after-market wheels. If you’re into VWs, you know EMPI. Fact. So, maybe it’s about time someone drew inspiration from this famous brand and created a period-style race van? Paint it yellow, add some 5-spokes and one of EMPI’s after-market stripe kits and you could have a GTV-styled works van. EMPI made/still make their own…
