JK at the Slough Swapmeet
Every year there’s a great turn out and this year was no different; the car park of Montem Leisure Centre in Slough started to fill up with air-cooled vans and cars keen grab a prime spot early on and when the main hall opened at 9.30 the JK goodie bags disappeared in a matter of minutes as the hall filled with eager Volkswagen enthusiasts. The car park quickly filled to the brim with air-cooled vehicles as far as the eye could see and with the sun even coming out to heat what felt more like a Spring day than early November, there was plenty of opportunity to wander around the car park to have a look at the spectacular vehicles on display.
Among the multiple trade stalls inside were a huge range of products covering parts to clothing and everything in between and included the likes of Hayburner, Flat Four, Mega Bug and many many more. At 1pm the eagerly-awaited trophies were handed out; five in all for Best Daily, Best Old Skool, Best Unique, Best Shiny and King of the Carpark.
By 2.30 the show was pretty much dying down and the sounds of air-cooled engines starting up and heading off to the A4 filled the air. In all another great day out for everyone so we’ll see you there next year!
