Hessisch Oldendorf vintage veteranentreffen

Every four years western Europe is treated to the rumble of aircooled engines as thousands of enthusiasts make their way to the small German town of Hessisch Oldendorf, and this was one of those years.

The vintage meet in Hessisch is known the world over for its selection of early VWs and parts. People travel from as far as the United States of America and Japan for this two day event, and they have good reason to.

Rods and Rockers

Took a cruise out to the Uraidla rod and custom show yesterday with the Volksenthusiasts club. A 9am start from Burnside, preceded a nice mellow cruise up through the Adelaide hills and on to Uraidla Oval, Uraidler. Afer a little confusion about how to get on the oval, and our cruise leader getting everyone to do a u turn only to find out the oval traffic was one way, meaning everyone had to do a uturn back the other way again (not aming any names *cough* Fin *cough*) LOL.

 

The show had a really good turnout, with a lot of early rods as well as the usual array of 60's chrome. The Autojumble was a dissapointment with only new parts on offer and no treasures to search through, but the quality and variety of cars more than made up for it. The weather was very good, but the hot weather forced many cars into the shade of the trees, which meant that it was hard to get a good look at some of them.
