Soaking It Up At Seaground


July was a fairly gloomy month in Germany. The skies have been cloudy and it rained nearly each single day. So it’s secure to say {that a} lot of individuals have been ready for sunnier days to arrive – the automobile group included.

The climate lastly made a flip for the higher within the second week of August, and with Seaground Automobile Occasion 2023 going down within the North Rhine-Westphalia city of Züplich that weekend, I used to be wanting to get out and take in some sunshine.


Seaground was one of many first occasions I heard of after I dove into the automobile scene in Germany, although I beforehand by no means discovered the time to make it out to the annual occasion. This 12 months the celebs aligned, and the mixture of excellent climate and a few free time on my half received me pumped to lastly attend.


The day began with some rain, however I’m glad it stopped simply as I arrived. The Seepark Zülpich venue was stuffed with the whole lot from necessary lowered Volkswagen Golfs to a couple of correct ‘Ring instruments and a few well-kept classics. If I’m sincere, I assumed the vehicles have been packed in a bit of too tight, however I undoubtedly can’t complain concerning the selection.


A few JDM legends additionally confirmed up. You actually can’t go previous a Bayside Blue BNR34 Skyline GT-R on Nismo LMGT4 wheels.


The primary pier to the Zülpicher See was maybe the least crowded a part of the venue because the vehicles have been pre-selected and coordinated, and also you additionally had the bonus of a large view of the lake within the background.


This Opel Kadett B Caravan was a present spotlight for me. Tremendous-clean exterior, your complete engine bay has been shaved, smoothed and wire-tucked to perfection too.

The inside wasn’t neglected both, with the Kadett’s customized air journey setup on present within the rear. I assumed the Duracell battery-themed air tank was a pleasant crowning glory.


This Marrakesh Brown BMW Z1 was, in my view, the best automobile on the occasion. Seeing an ordinary Z1 is an event, however this one is on one other degree. It’s sitting on customized air suspension and has a totally re-trimmed inside. The longer you take a look at it the extra particulars you discover; even the headlights have some distinctive touches.

Actually, it’s so particular that I’m planning a full standalone function on it quickly. Keep tuned for that.


The colour-matched E34 BMW 5 Collection belongs to the identical proprietor.


Take a look at this Volkswagen Lupo with a tent. What a neat setup!

I don’t know why the proprietor of this Lexus LS 400 parked so distant from the occasion; it actually ought to’ve been offered nearer to the stage. You simply don’t see these in Germany daily.


At round 1:00pm the climate lastly shifted, and the solar shone shiny as many hoped it might.


The very best a part of this venue is the sand that mimics a seashore. Other than the northern border, we don’t have any seashores in Germany, however we do have lots of lakes dotted round, lots of which have been was stunning parks for enjoyable and occasions like Seaground.


I noticed this Mk1 Volkswagen Polo Coupe on the day I took photographs for my first Speedhunters story. With its shiny paintwork and fender flares, it actually stood out from all the opposite VWs on the Nürburgring.


Recently I’ve discovered a brand new appreciation for the Mercedes-Benz W124. I feel the design of the automobile actually oozes simplicity and class. I used to be glad to see just a few of them at this occasion.


Inbuilt a related type to the Opel Kadett Caravan is that this gentle blue Mk1 Volkswagen Golf, fitted with a giant pair of side-draught Weber carbs and a very nice header. I couldn’t discover the proprietor to speak to and be taught extra concerning the automobile, however it was fairly a cool piece of equipment.


The good a part of Seaground Automobile Occasion is that the lake park is additionally open to the general public. Whereas it may need brought about some site visitors early within the morning when all of the vehicles arrived, as everyone settled in, it turned far more constructive and house owners talked to informal guests about their builds.

Seaground was a pleasant change of environment from the earlier chilly and moist month. With the big variety of vehicles to admire and excellent climate, it was a welcomed weekend break.
