VW Harlekin or Harlequin model was released in 1995.
when are you moving to YORK?!!
Keep checking our gallery to spot YOUR dub.
Great guy and a great van.
Before Dubtricks got hold of this T4, Pumpkin was a yellow airport transfer bus. Now a trophy winner in the T4/T5 at category at BusFreeze!
Owned by a member of Leeds VW club. See you soon.
Betsy is our 1969 1200 VW Beetle, she has recently had a respray and has lots more things planned...
This was finished early 2011 and went on to win a show and shine trophy at Bus Types - can you tell his owner John is a prefessional photographer?
We had a great time - so we'll share some pics from the weekend.
...another York Classic Vws member. Visit our club page for info.
This shot is by Kate as she tried her hand at getting that perfect shot of campervans - watch think?.
This 1963 RHD walkthrough was fully restored by Dubtricks in Harrogate and went on to be a show winner!
Restored a few years ago and the paint was specially designed by the owner as there was no colour in the world that was just right!
Can't tell you how nice it is to have a Karman in our group. Beautiful car.
Here's a member of the York Vw club arriving.
Painted in a blend of pearl yellow, orange and red to look like a sunset - because there was a business card under the dash from Sunset Boulevard, California!
Here we are having a chat before heading to the pub.
Recently reSprayed and looking cool in his shade of blue - our friend Victor (the camperVan) sits patiently until we drove off to our meeting point.
As we awaited the arrival of other members of the group, we thought-why not have yet more pics of our members camperVans.
We recently visited a Veedub drag race event, and Kate & I watched this beauty do the quarter mile run in 16 seconds - kitchen sink and all still in it.
This picture was taken at one of the stops during July 2011's Big Fat Tour. Betsy you know, golf girl you know and here's Matty's T4
This beauty we spotted in York. The owner says he's planning on making this bug a street only version, so it's racing days may be over soon. We think it's a beauty however it's running.
We were going for the classic dubs-in-a-line shot, and got it (with a VW Trekker twist). The foremost Beetle is from Aircooled Performance; nice group of people with whom we're anxious to keep working with. Cheers for the pic Darren.
Once we'd all parked up, it was time for another round of parking-lot banter before heading inside for refreshments and a proper dub chat.
Restored 20 years later - no expense spared, I think the last penny went on this and she then had to go to a nice new home in Ilkley.
We think this is a fine specimen of a splitscreen...Ocho got all smashed up on the ship coming over from Uraguay then Iain made a start by doing all the welding himself.
This beauty is Felicity, a Brazilian T2 bay camper converted by Danbury. Just so you know, she's available for hire - we had her for a week & loved it; see our hire page for more information...Tell Paul, Kate & Kevin sent ya.
Keep up-to-date with our plans for a York classic vw festival event via our twitter and facebook chats.
As you may know already, we at YorkClassicVWS - love campervans. Can't wait for the next cruise with these guys.
Those local to York may have seen this one about - we won't give your name out mate, but see ya soon and hey, are you leading the cruise this time? you've got our number - chat soon.
Here's Betsy (the green & to be painted one) parked up with a new found friend. Taken 10th July 2011 as we visited the York RaceWay drag race meet. That yellow campervan also featured in this picture gallery was great to watch.

Here's more footage to satisfy our vw friends. Feel free to share it with others. And you can find more of our uploaded vw show videos by clicking on Our YouTube link below.
For it's first show, we think it was a good weekend for all those who attended. the Doncaster VW 2013 show. We have posted a few pics of the show n shine cars on our facebook page. Let us know which Bus or Beetle is yours .
You don't need to be a hippie to own a Volkswagen Campervan. The prices are a bit daunting i'll give you that, but as with so many things in life, if you put your mind and effort in it, you will reap a reward - bargins are still out there to be had.
Were you at our recent show...? Special thanks to Davy and all our YorkClassicVws for keeping Betsy company during the DubsIntDales 2012 show. Find us on facebook and ask about joining our club.
We can help. We recently met up with a fellow veedubber Iain, who came to the rescue with helping out on the very own Classic Volks 1969 vw Beetle by not only diagnosing a fault with the braking, but also fixing it. Now as this is a vw Beetle we are talking about, not surprisingly, one thing led to another and we then found ourselves faced with a faulty oil light issue as well; but Classic volks would never recommend that you interfere with the vw electrical system as there is a high risk of creating a fire hazard - instead we let the experts at DubTricks help us out. You can find contact information from their website.
This pic is from Doncaster 2013 VW show, spotted by Kate&Kevin.
Popularly known in the UK as the 'Trekker', in the USA as the 'Thing' and in Mexico as the 'Safari' they started life as a small military vehicle produced from 1969 - 1983.
We've read that about 90,000 of these got built, mostly in Germany and Mexico. Bit of trivia for ya...the Body Style was typically a 4-door cabriolet, the engine is in the rear, and most engines were either 1.5 or 1.6L with a 4 speed manual transmission. The volkswagen Type 181 has a greater ride height compared to many of its relatives and features whats known as a 'portal axle'.
