Alltypes, Bodelwyddan Castle

With guaranteed good weather clubs and show cars descended on Bodelwyddan Castle for one of the best VW shows in the north, if not the UK. I was there representing the Scirocco Register with my trusty Mk2 so an early start was needed for a full day at the show.



 

The show ground was full by 10am with everything from Derby’s, Karmann Ghias, Golfs, Passats, Scirocco’s, Up’s, Vans,and virtually every model from the VW stable.













 

 

 





















Add to that the attendee’s from the wider VAG community, with Audi very well represented (more on that later though), SEAT, Skoda and Porsche




 

 




One common strand that ran through the newer metal was stance. With air-ride, stretched tyres and huge wheels, whether that be in the club area or the show ground. The Scirocco below was just awesome-








The show had its usual feel, relaxed with catch up’s, “I used to have one of those” and appreciation, all while basking in the sun (the last 3-4 years it’s rained at some point). Surprisingly the with such a good turnout of punters guarenteed the Autojumble was only small this year, although I did find a bargain of a front wing for my Rocco so can’t complain too much about it.
 
Highlight of the show, this has to be the easiest one for a long time despite the quality of cars on show that where credits to their drivers and builders. Club Audi had a gem of a car, the Audi Jaray "Ugly Duckling" on loan from Audi UK. It truly was a site to be seen, and one hell of a surprise, as it backed out of its transport truck. I told you I was there early. What I didn’t expect was how large it would be, standing nearly 6’ tall yet quiet narrow, but more on that in a future post I think.

 


 
Another great show and a big thank you for the organizers for fantastic event, already planning to attend next year
