img_1130 img_1131Tatton Park is a Favourite of Fellows Speed shop.

We had a brilliant weekend and also brilliant weather.

Always great to see customers from the North at this show and some of our Favourite customers Emma and Ant showing on the stand their Beetle Subaru Engine Conversion. One of our first and still looking incredible. Emma and Ant also have a puck and a bay window which they travel in every weekend to some part of the UK.

Also great to see Martin in his Bay window with a Subaru Engine Conversion detailed in Blue and also Stuart with a Full Subaru Conversion a Fellows SPEEDSHOP Steering Rack conversion and also Fellows Speed Shop Brake Disc Conversion. Stuart also has a full suspension upgrade so this bus will be one to see at the shows and a great specimen

We will have 3 Subaru Engine Conversions on the stand and in a new position on the field overlooking the show and shine.. Wow some incredible VW to see and photos can be seen on Tatton Park facebook page.

The organisers of Tatton Park focus the show around the Show and Shine and is brilliantly run and some fantastic Vehicles and stands to see

always a good one see you next year
