Edition 38 has long been a pillar within the UK show season. Established back in 2001, Edition was the first ‘major’ show of its kind put together by enthusiasts for enthusiasts – a format which continues to be successful thanks to its laid-back vibes and community feeling often missed by traditional large-scale events.
Before the show was formed, Edition 38 was all about the online forum. With tens of thousands of members posting round the clock, the Edition 38 forums were an essential part of VW ownership – from diagnosing problems to sourcing rare parts and everything in between.
Fast-forward to 2017 and while social media has changed the way we consume car content, Edition 38 has continued to grow year after year with the show now attracting thousands of campers to Overstone park for a weekend celebration of all things VW.
Meguiar’s UK has been a long-standing supporter of the Edition 38 brand, not only displaying at the shows but also welcoming many of the Edition 38 team into the Meguiar’s detailing bay such is their passion for car care and detailing.
It’s what we love most about the crowds Edition 38 attracts. These are die-hard enthusiasts who don’t need educating on the importance of car care, but instead simply want to choose the best products specifically tailored towards their needs. Thankfully, Meguiar’s UK has been in the game long enough to boast a catalogue full of cleaning solutions for ALL your needs!
2017 was another big year for Edition 38 helped massively with that rare British treat otherwise known as sunshine! For such a big, chilled show the level of show cars on display was second to none, with all aspects of watercooled (and air-cooled) VWs on display.
One of our favorites from the weekend was ‘Macy The Bug’ owned by Phil @ The Install Company. This ’63 Beetle runs super-low on static suspension and looks utterly stunning parked up and on the move. Phil’s a long-term friend of Meguiar’s and his Beetle represents everything we love about the VW scene. You can follow the build over at https://www.instagram.com/macy_bug63/
As we enter September there’s still a few killer events left on the calendar, not least Players @ North Weald on the 17th. Stay tuned to the Meguiar’s blog for more show reports and galleries coming very soon!
