This show was organised by the same people who ran the classic show at Old Warden airfield recently so I thought I’d pop down the M1 in my 968 and see some Germans. Firstly, there were only two Porsches. I wasn’t going to show my car but had you turned up expecting Stuttgart stuff you might have been disappointed. There was, however, hundreds of dubs on display. From ratty Beetles to twee Campers and a few Variants and of course lots of water cooled modern modified stuff; Volkswagen Lupos, Polos and Golfs aplenty. An E30 estate really caught my eye, a design that looks like an instant classic yet was still in production as recently as 20 years ago. The Audi drivers club was there and the MK1 VW Golf Gti Owners club brought a great line up too. The venue was a nice big field at Billing Aquadrome, which is also a holiday camp. I’m not sure what the happy campers made of a mob of Dubs in their midst but we had a good time. Enjoy the pics!
