RSVP Barbecue 2012

12 Sep

On Sunday 9 September RSVP held their annual air-cooled Volkswagen meet and barbecue. We got there early and began to set up ready for everyones arrival, unsure how many people were going to attend but hoping for a good number. The sun was out and it was on the cards to be a beautiful day. From 11.00 am people started to arrive and some awesome cars rolled up and started to fill out the large area of the Big Meadow in Bidford On Avon. By 1.00 pm everyone had arrived and we were blown away by both the number of people who had turned up and the quality of cars that they had come in, we lost count at around 50 cars and 100 people. The Barbecue was lit and once ready everyone took on the chefs role and cooked themselves some food. The atmosphere during the day was amazing and everyone seemed to be having a good time. At 4.30 pm everyone was called together for the trophy giving with some well deserved winners receiving trophies for Furthest Travelled, Participants Choice and Raddest Ride. Everyone of the RSVP had an awesome day but it couldn’t have been possible without all of the people who came along in their cars and made the day such a memorable one. A massive thank you to everyone for coming and we hope to see you at next years event. These awesome photos of the day were taken by David Hall.

Colin sells his fasty

30 Aug

It was a sad day at RSVP when Colin finally decided to let the fasty go. The new owner had requested it to be raised slightly and to be put back onto 17″ fuch. He shipped a set to colin for him to fit. It’s a shame that such a cool car has had to leave the RSVP line up but it is all for a good cause. Colin is now on the look out for something very early, right hand drive and of the split bus variety. We’ll let you know what he finds. (Photos copyright Paul Pace)

Brett freshens up his ghia’s dash

30 Aug

When Brett bought his ghia the dash had been painted satin black and it did not match the rest of the car. As most of the car and interior had been painted metallic brown at some point in it’s past, Brett decided he would paint the dash the same. He got a base coat paint match at his local auto paint shop and set to work prepping, painting and lacquering. (Photos copyright Brett Elesmore)

An awesome weekend was had by all and after a wet start to the Friday, the sun came out and stayed for the rest of the weekend.
