Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Talking VW Bus Stop - BLOODY AWESOME!

Hi guys

Just got back from the show and it was spot on!!!

The general vibe was brilliant and felt very welcome by all the organsiers/people working there.

The general stalls/traders were a little sparse, but hey, its the first show! there was enough there to check out, and some great alternative food stalls (nice change from the usual burger bars)

£10 a van was an absolute bargin we would be more then happy to pay double that next year! (free entry for day visitors),

A load of the dubbers are cutrrently on a cruise to eastbourne for 'eastbourne extreme' and another nights camping ......yes this was all for £10 a van/bug! we would have loved to gone to eastbourne and another nights camping, but other commitments got in the way

We hope it was a sucess for the organsiers and hope VW Bus Stop 2010 goes ahead!

Have to agree looked like a nice relaxed weekend. Only went on saturday afternoon due to engine probs with my bus. Was gonna pop down Eastbourne seafront this afternoon to see the show and shine but the weather isnt looking too clever.
Hopefully this show will be bigger and better next year , could probably do witha few more traders selling vw bits .

I agree with everyone else, it was a great show and I really enjoyed my day there yesterday with some of the SLACKERS lot too I had a great laugh especially when we tried out a pair of heelies with varying degrees of success.

The second band was excellent too (I couldn't stay there too late unfortunately).

I'm just getting the photos off my card and will be starting a separate thread with my photos on a photobucket link.
