Grill n Chill ’13

A bit of a late update on this show..

With good hopes we drove down to this show, I managed to convince the family as they gave a sunny forecast hence Lucy being due to give birth the same weekend .. !!!!
I’ve heard good things about this show so was looking forward to it but it didn’t last very long..
Yet again another show where you can see it’s all about money.. A lot of rubbish traders with the most un-usefull things and a mixed show and shine field  ..
It’s such a shame that organisers don’t step up to create an air-cooled only event, having started a recent discussion on a well known VW forum I could hear a lot of similar frustrations and also a demand for aircooled only events!
I’ve plans to setup a few aircooled only shows so more info soon 🙂

Anyway, apart from the little frustration I was verry happy to meet with friends and soon there was a very nice Splitscreen corner on the show.. In the end it’s the company that makes the show !!!

Lowie the lolly dude 🙂 ready for a wander around..

 

 

It didn’t last very long and so he went through the bus to see what he could find to play with..

New trend maybe .. ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The whole bus went upside down to the likes of myself..      errrmmm..

We arrived on saturday lunch time.. I think friday night was a good one ..    😉

Nice line up!

HAYBURNER represent!!

As is the Cool Flo gang.. They threw a wicked party on the saturday night, good times!!!

What a fantastic looking bus this is!!

Ludo, Ned’s dog, had bitten Lowie’s ball to pieces therefor Lowie received a cool trucker hat! Cheers Ned..

Coolio!
The program for the kids was very nice with some good storytelling and lot’s of activities around..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The show and shine field had all sorts of different cars to my frustration. However, some of the “vehicles” where well worth having a look at.

This airstream was in immaculate condition, a real beauty!!

The car on the right in this picture has some really nice accessories ..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

De eyes of this viking had built in lights which I think is a cool feature at night.. 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The black rims on this early mango bus are a good choice, they really pop!

Tim’s “total chick car” was present and looking good as always!                                                           The Fire bus looked mint!
The pinstriped Ghia done by seaside Neil is a work of art in itself!

 

 

 

 

 

There seems to be a trend for putting watercoolers on beetle pans.. this won’t go any lower! Great fun when you have too much time on your hands  😀

The tuxedo beetle..    ?

Our camp!

BOOO   🙂

The dude and his bike! Soon it’ll be time for a real big boy’s bike without stabilisers..

Bagged OG paint splitty, one of my favorite colors.. Looked real nice.

 

 

 

 

Ned working on a new magazine these days ..

“Gay-Gurner”    😀

 

 

 

 
Good luck Ned! 😉

 

 

 

 

 

Ned’s wife Vic, did her last show with the air-cooled bouncy castles. Lowie got some extra time/fun until he knackered himself down.. 😀   Thx Vic!


The setup of this show is very nice but I’m just not a fan of seeing modern cars parked up next to our old classics.. a shame as this show has so much potential!!

Oh well until next time.. 🙂
