patina a plenty on this rear vent/fuel flap detail of this split screen bus

it’s not just about the car, sometimes it’s about the details

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.

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!
