    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 -

    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.

    Hi bobberuk,

    Some really nice VW's there. I missed the video when I saw your post initially ... love it!

    ... that's a seriously small steering wheel, you must have strong arms
    ... love the colour coded sunglasses
    ... really impressed with the speed of your canopy going up/down

    It wasn't until I watched the video that I noticed your wiper system when the canopy opened. That appears to be a twin arm wiper system right? Any chance of a video of it operating (inside and outside). What is it off of etc... Nice to see a Nova with the wipers flat at the bottom of the screen when parked, the only other I've seen was Laurens.
