    Bristol Volksfest Drive In

    Hi Guys, hope you are all keeping well....

    Today I took the Nova down to the Helicoter Museum located on the old RAF Locking air-field just outside of Weston SUper Mare. The Guys from Bristol Volksfest were having a charity fund raising day for the main event next year and also to raise some cash for the museum itself.

    I filmed the drive down..

    Couldn't have asked for better weather, and as it was less than a mile from where I live, I thought I better go. Tickets were restricted to 500 but the museum visitors were also able to come and view the cars.

    There was around 150 'exhibitors' cars and a few caught my eye. Here are some pictures I took whilst there.

    Nice- I was looking on youTube yesterday for new Nova content and there's not much.
    Could you post some more photos of your car, I like it a lot!


    This Youtube video is my favourite of a Cimbria (Sterling)

    This UK Nova video worries me because I'm not sure I could stand this much attention at a petrol station -

    You cannot own and drive a Nova if you are shy. Its quite Normal to get attention like this in petrol stations and car parks when pulling up on the car. It happens all the time

    For sale: Bright orange and gold Nova


    I used to view your website many a time and it was a deciding factor in me wanting one,
    along with Laurens car. The vid of you merging onto a by-pass/motorway was a favourite...

    Some of the USA videos put me off! Love the one where the commentator says
    "What year Sterling is that?"
    "77"
    "Oh OK, so early 70s"...

    Thanks... Completely unexpected to win, just wanted people to see and learn there are more kits than just beach buggies. 🤙🤘

    I've been to VW events in the past (when I had a buggy), and if it ain't a bug, bus or buggy they'll not be interested. The guys running this event were all super friendly and pretty excited the car was exhibited.
