One of the great things about Ninove is that it’s a show that seems to evolve and change as you walk around the town as different cars join in and park up in the streets. So here a few more of my incidental and detail photos I took as I wandered around the town…
It’s funny how on such a simple and distinctive body form as the VW Beetle or VW Bus, how much individuality is expressed through simple details. Some where through owner choice or addition, others where simply the character of the vintage ageing process itself, such as this distressed Volkswagen type script and the distressed paint stripes above, what’s not to love about that!
Of the many interesting features of this early bus, I was probably the only one whose attention was grabbed by the strange surface patterns of the exposed metal on the filler cap – I guess it takes all sorts!
I spotted this beautiful distressed vintage PCA (Porsche Club of America) badge, can any Porsche geeks tell what Porsche it was on just from this photo…?
Loved these chrome hooded driving/spot/fog lights, they looked the business!
The designer in me could hardly walk past this brilliant typography of the chrome Volkswagen script!
Good suspension or careful driving required with this cargo of old skool Coca Cola bottles stashed away on the roof rack!
Someone looking to be different with this very retro/Sci-fi looking rear light cluster!
I really love the Ninove show, such variety, agreat vibe and a very welcoming town, so I’m desperate to try to get the insurance sorted on my burnt out camper so that I can somehow make Ninove 2016, but unfortunately it looks like it will be in a different vintage VW camper now…
