Sometimes I find it hard to concentrate on looking at the overall picture in front of me, as more often than not, my eye gets drawn to little details that make up the bigger picture. This is especially true when I was wandering around the various cars on display at the Witkap Brewery gathering in Ninove on the Saturday afternoon after the fun of the UK cruise from Calais.
Loving the vintage metal Slaghmuylder 509 Ninove plaque in the Brewery’s small museum area displaying various items from the Brewery’s history.
The beautiful autumnal colours of the patina on this amazing Palm Green/Sand green splitty detail around its rear engine cooling vents/petrol flap.
The simplicity of detail and character of this Hella rear light and cracked rear reflector…
…and the aged and rusty front VW emblem on the front of the bus, brilliant!
Talking of aged character, there were some beautiful vintage beer bottles tucked away in their wooden crates, not sure if they had gone past their sell by date or not though?
As a designer, I love typography! So obviously I was drawn to this lightly distressed VW Karmann Ghia script, stunning!
Then of course there is the simple minimalism of a super clean RHD VW Barndoor dash, so much visual stimulus, sometimes it was hard to realise there were cars there at all!
