Only if you covered them liberally with Jalepeños.

Default Bug Jam 28

Evening Fuckers,

I've been going to Bug Jam right from way back when I didn't need a mirror on a stick to see my penis and it's in my blood. It's not for everyone….but I love it. I'm too old for it….but I love it. In summary….I love it. A weekend of beer, racing, beer, sun, beer, tomfoolery, beer, dancing, beer and beer. Oh, and I love it.

So bearing in mind how much I love it (I hope I conveyed how much I love it) it's always the show I want, nay need, my air-cooled car to get to and to this end, Rudolph, once again didn't disappoint. Despite barely turning a wheel in 2014 I loaded him up….



….and headed for the M6. Despite a horrendous journey marred by stop/start traffic he performed faultlessly (bar lacking air-con, which we could really have done with) and at dusk, as the smell of marijuana bbqs filled the air we arrived on site:



Despite angry looking skies on Saturday morning…



….it soon cleared and 'hat weather' followed:



A great weekend of beer, racing, beer, sun, beer, tomfoolery, beer, dancing, beer and beer followed….





….and another badge of honour earned:



Well done Rudolph! Oh, and did I mention that I love Bug Jam?

Peace.
Andy

Hi, I've just put a deposit down on one of these It's missing its passenger seat and rear seat base and while I have a full black basket weave interior, I'de like to try and keep the red. Any ideas where I might source replacements?

Cheers

Welcome to the fold Got any pics or are you gonna start a thread? Personally, I don't know why you'd want the original interior, I think it's the work of the devil It's how I'd imagine Simon Le Bon's bedroom to have looked in 1986. Anyhoo, if you really must I'm not really sure who (if anyone) could help. These two spring to mind though (other than keeping your eyes on eGay etc)….
