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.

RSVP at VW Action 2012

12 Sep

On Friday 31 August RSVP cruised down to Santa Pod Raceway to spend the weekend at VW Action 2012. Vw Action is always a really chilled show with a very friendly atmosphere and this year didn’t disappoint. Everyone had a really enjoyable weekend full of cool cars, nice weather and good entertainment. One of the highlights being the night racing on the drag strip. On sunday evening, whilst the weather was still good, everyone jumped in their cars to cruise home together after another awesome weekend.

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)

RSVP at Bug Jam 26

29 Aug

RSVP joined up with their good friends the DTA and Ditch Dubbers to fill a large club camping plot at Bug Jam 26. 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. This helped everyone join in the fun of celebrating Colin’s stag do on the saturday evening and creating some awesome memories. The show was made even better for the RSVP with Brett and Dan walking away with trophies and Brett and Paul walking away with the prospects of Volks World features for their cars. Volkswagens, sun and good friends, what more could you ask for? (Photos copyright Brett Elesmore)

RSVP, DTA and Ditch Dubbers cruise to Bug Jam 26

29 Aug

On the morning of Friday 20 July RSVP met up with their good friends the DTA and Ditch Dubbers to cruise up to Bug Jam 26. Joining them at their meeting point was a camera crew from Togethia Media who were filming their cruise for a section of the Bug Jam 26 Television programme. A little set back with a quickly fixed break down delayed their set off but everyone was soon cruising in convoy on their way to Santa Pod Race Way. After a couple of short stops, a huge downpour of rain and a two hour queue to get in, all arrived safe and parked up in the club camping spot ready to enjoy the weekend ahead.
