Welcome to this month’s newsletter.

After last month's chapter and verse, I thought I would give you all a break, and trim it right back. Mainly because I have been so busy with my own sheet I have not really done much UKP related.

This month I had a sitting at my tattooist that lasted 5 1/2hrs, thankfully my arse had gone numb so that took my mind of the pain being inflicted upon my left arm. Being gluten for punishment, I am booked back in on the 14th September for another full day of torture.

There have been quite a few shows on over the last month, none of which my time or finances have allowed me to attend. Therefore with VW Festival happening last weekend I was well and truly ready for it. VW Festival usually signals the closing of my show camping year, so I am planned on going out with style. Foolish, child like behavior mixed in with a little bit of dressing up, all gently rationalised and gelled together by my good friend ;alcohol!

The weekend was a blast!  Meeting up with old friends and new, which is what it is all about for me.  The cherry on the top, was UK Passats winning Best Watercooled Club.  Well done to all of you guys, not just the ones on the stand, but to all of the dedicated members who have helped spread the good word, and flown the UKP flag with pride.

As I said previously, VW Festival signals the close of my weekend show season, which is why a group of us were still sat in the camping field at 6pm on the Sunday.  With the added bonus of us leaving at this time, there were no traffic jams on the way out.  Another excellent show organised by some truly dedicated people, which always seems to leave me with a good feeling and makes me wonder what next year will bring……



7th August saw another local (to me) show, VWNW at Tatton Park in Cheshire. I keep missing this show year after year, every time I plan to attend, something gets in the way. By all accounts it is a cracking show, with all the elements you would want. Air and water pumpers sharing the same space. Gone are the days or the 90's when this would never have thought to be possible. Thankfully all parties have now opened their arms to each other, and both share the love for the VW emblem, regardless of its method of engine cooling.

Here is a little taster to get you started.


Until next month, I wish you a fond farewell and wish you all luck in whatever adventures you are upto.

Car Of The Month - July

This month’s title, as voted by you guys, went to Indywindy and his very moody B6

He had a vision and has stuck to it, making his B6 a very 'stand out from the crowd' kinda car. His network of UKP mates seems to stretch the country, with everyone he meets seemingly taking to him like a duck to water. Making him and his car a formidable duo.

Although I don't think he has finished polishing his initail vision, it is still a very COTM winner, ticking all the right boxes, without following the recent scene influx, of simply buying a new skool ride, dropping it and putting on some fresh rims and calling it finished.

I for one can't wait to see what the next chapter on the Indywindy school of B6 modding brings.

From all the Admin team to you, Indywindy...

Well Done!
