Bristol Volksfest 2012 Report

2012 marks Bristol Volksfest's 20th year and my first time attending. Seeing that it was only just down the road Frank was fired up and a country drive took me to Washingpool Farm in Easter Compton. The show was very busy with lots to see indoors and out, here's my findings from the day.

 VW Panel Van
(digitally painted ink sketch)

All the sign writing on this van was found during a paint strip. Marc decided to keep it as is and has just lacquered it. I've always been partial to these vans and with this kind of patina and history it makes it even better.

More Vans

 A great line up of Beetles

 Unfortunately pictures don't describe the comedy horns in these two.


As well as a huge range of VWs on display there was also a good display of  low riders with hydraulics installed. My favourite was this Lada for obvious reasons.

 VW Variant (bouncer in disguise)

Last but not least was this great little aluminium caravan.
