Elemental #10 Stars

Elemental #10 was the first camping trip out for us this year. It's the third year at the new venue, Crouch Valley show ground and the tenth year since it started at the Mountfitchet Mathematics & Computing college. 
It grew out of the previous venue and is still growing at it's new site to the point that people who were turning up on Saturday afternoon expecting to pay on the gate were being turned away! 
The reason why is simple, the organisers lay on masses of entertainment with enough live bands to make it a music festival including:
Funke & The Two Tone Baby, Hobo Jones & The Junkyard Dogs , A Mouthful Of Ashtrays and Gaz Brookfield

Also a dance tent provided by Burts Boyz and Dj Trademark spinning some old school tunes to keep the old Ravers happy.
Also a large swap meet, traders, food stalls and much more and all the profits from the event going to Essex Air Ambulance and Marie Curie.
The total money raised at last years show for Essex Air Ambulance was a massive £5,590.22 and a cheque was presented to them at this years show.
But lets not forget this is a Volkswagen show and the show field is big with lots of different types of the Volkswagen marque, air and water cooled,old and new even some Audi's and Seat's.
If you want to visit Elemental #11 next year I suggest you book early as it's always rammed and you don't want to be one of the unlucky ones who are turned away!

Volksworld Show 2015

So here we are in 2015 and the Volksworld show marks the start of the VW show season for us here at Volksbuster. For the past three years we have had one of our fleet in the Splitterz VW Club line up at the show and we normally camp over for the weekend but this year decided to let one of the other members have a go and due to other commitments could only visit on the Sunday. 
Not the best day to attend as the weather was awful with howling winds and rain showers! Luckily most of the show is indoors.
The quality of the show cars inside the building at Sandown park is amazing and seems to get better year on year and it's always chock full of top notch Bugs, Buses, Rods, Buggies and Type 3's.
Volksworld always manage to get some rare cars to the show and this year with the help of VW Heritage Classic Parts managed to get four Karmann Ghia prototypes over from the Karmann museum in Germany for a special display.
