I love the way unstaged period photographs capture and preserve a moment in time, as in this month’s Welcome image taken at the Wolfsburg factory gates in 1951. I’m unsure if it’s the end of a shift, or a convoy heading off to showcase or even road test the vehicles, but just check out that line of new bugs and barndoor buses. I just love the little incidental details – the guy in the foreground’s leather flying helmet, jacket and briefcase, the children watching intently, or the gateman’s bike casually propped by the office door.Custom styling is a recurrent theme across our features buses this month, from combining classic stock looks and subtle modern upgrades to something a bit more radical, as in our T5 Swamper with its Raptor Bed…

the life of brian

Black steering wheel shows the commercial van heritage. Love the radio blanking plate!But let’s go back to the beginning. It began as a toss away line while meandering round Noosa in 2006 in search of a coffee as an ageing Kombi rattled by, “I’m going to have one of those before I die.” The moment lingered and the bohemian breath within lured me to the VW Nationals at Fairfield on Easter Sunday to pursue and foster the dream.Parked quietly in the for-sale car park was a cream Kombi, devoid of any spruiky bits save a collection of seats wrapped in a bare metal interior but with a stance and attitude that dragged me back several times that morning to review, take the number of the owner and to stand wait…

Oldschool ScrewdriversThere’s something satisfying about using traditional crafted tools, both in the home and on the bus. I just love the look and feel (and quality) of this new range of slot-headed, wooden-handled screwdrivers from Gunson Tools, the oval section handle gives these screwdrivers a lovely weight and the natural feel of an older and more traditional wooden handled screwdriver. The blade extends the length of the driver so that they can be lightly encouraged with a mallet or small hammer if necessary, with no danger of any splintering of the handle. The tips are finely ground and tapered for maximum strength. Available in four sizes: 160mm / 9mm tip; 200mm / 9.5mm tip; 250mm / 100mm tip, and a full 300mm with a tip size of 10.5mm; prices from…
