It’s issue 6 people!
So we seem to have struck a chord in the dub scene with lots more messages and pictures from around the word of how our wonderful readers do the dub thing and plenty more feedback on the mag; and once again this month we’re bringing you a nice slice right across the middle of planet VW… so pull up a chair, grab a fork and dig in:
Kicking off with the rides; we serve a nice big helping of water-cooled action in the form of a very original modified T5… this one has gone for a fairytale theme based around Shrek! Why you ask? Because the owners bought a 5ft cuddly version of the movie character for their grandkids but ended up keeping him in the van… and it kind of grew from there. The water action continues in the form of a 2lt Subaru engine lurking in the back of a race ready Splitty Crewcab, we catch up with the owner trackside at Spa for a natter. Oh and we also drop by a very fine house in the country to see the gentleman’s 4×4… well, actually it’s an expedition prepared super rare 16” Syncro T3 (or T25 if you prefer)… and there ain’t nothing ‘gentle’ about it!
For lovers of air, we check out a super original Karmann Ghia Cabriolet (mmm, metallic!) and a perfect patinad Blue Type 2 Early Bay beauty… this thing is cooler than Fonzie! On the subject of old buses with ‘bay windows’… we shoot off on a crafty tangent this month, introducing our ‘If you like that, you’ll love this’ section with a sweet little Hot Rod bus that looks strangely familiar… but you won’t find a VW badge on it anywhere (whaaaaat?) – oh, cheeky!
So, what else then? Oh yes, a round of some more shows from the 2014 season that was (we’ve even included some sunny ones to warm you up), from strictly air-cooled to water lovers delight; we reckon some of the more out-there shows can be positively tribal these days… all great fun, every single one!
And we’re on our travels again, back in the Tigerbus… hello China! And a bit closer to home for a jaunt across to Germany… in another T3 as it happens! We also catch up with our lovely columnists; Del delves into more music… and if you still have room for more after that lot, our very own Tailgate Gourmet parks up the camper and sets up an outdoor kitchen right on the beach for a Thai curry… alfresco style!
Issue 6 is served!!
