Day of the Volkswagen, Perth, 2015

The Volkswagen Club of Western Australia hosted the Day of the Volkswagen on 6th of December 2015. Unfortunately the weather was unseasonably raining, which probably drove some attendees away. Nevertheless there was a good turnout and it never actually rained. At least it wasn't a stinking hot scorcher.

Given the cars in attendance, it would be more correct to call it "Day of the Kombi"

This Kombi was for sale for $67,000. A fine looking machine

Coffee and milkshakes

A milkshake was just the ticket as we'd been to Shelly's Christmas party the night before.

Dual cab

1974 Army spec Kombi. This was an ex-Australian Army surplus vehicle.  It's unrestored and has driven around Australia several times without a breakdown.

A very rotten ute

The dark burgundy colour may not be an 'official' colour, but it really looks marvellous.

There were surprisingly few Beetles and Type 3s
