    I vote we meet at the bar next year and make a call from there whether to stay or go outside for a picnic or the likes.

    Awesome red beetle that one and totally bling city - gets more bling every time I see it.

    A great fun day again as I had a VW only day with no kids. Caught up with a few people but missed a few too.

    Some good shopping too.

    We had a fun day and yep, like everybody else would have been good to have a meet point. Was a great day though, lots of eye candy.

    Thanks for the pics. Sorry I missed it. I had all intentions of going but had some stuff to take care of in the morning and by the time I remembered, it was nearly 2 o'clock!

    It's sort of like "Does my arse look big in this?"

    They are the same width as a splitty.

    Up close they look sooo wide as they basically sit on a beetle pan with these wide box sections either side.

    Love them but and aparently they are surprisingly good off-road.
