Dubfreeze 2008

The 2008 VW season got underway last weekend with the annual Dubfreeze event in Staffordshire. It's a swapmeet with trade stands and a small show and shine indoors, but as is often the case all the most interesting stuff was outside in the car park.

This twin-engined Mk1 Golf was fantastic:

A few non-VW gems lurked about, including this Triumph TR6:

and this Cortina Lotus:

The year really gets going with the Easter Thunderball at Santa Pod, can't wait!

It goes well...

This is my Brothers car, a Lada Riva. It's built for Road Rallying, and he's just spent the past couple of weeks dropping a 2.0 Vauxhall XE Twin Cam lump into it. Full story soon!
