The biggest and smoothest yet, the sun shone, the Bus Nation celebrated, much fun was had by all. There’s a full report inside this issue and next month will have our special freebie Camper Jam supplement packed with more pictures! As I am busy writing this (always the last job before uploading to design), it has just been announced that 2040 will mark the end of new diesel and petrol cars! I wonder what the future holds for all our classic VWs? Are we moving to the German model where old-timers are regulated, licenced, and have restricted mileage and use along with requirements about originality? Doubtless old splits…

sonora the samba

Built in April 1965 as a 7 seater walkthrough sunroof Deluxe and finished in the classic colours of Sealing Wax Red / Beige Grey, it was exported to California and was rediscovered in 2006 rusting / next to a barn in Missouri. It had been last registered in 1985 and, as nothing is known about its past, one can only speculate as to why it was stored for so many years. The couple who discovered and bought it soon realised however that the rust repairs and restoration required was well above their skill level and, after a couple estimates from local shops, they decided to sell it to someone who wanted to restore it and had the skills and patience. The couple who discovered and bought it soon realised however that…

baby blue bay

Mark Jones had long admired his mate’s Bay camper so when he spotted one for sale on EBay that looked tidy back in 2005, he decided to check it out instead of just putting in a blind bid. It had been stood on the owner’s driveway for several years but looked quite sound despite needing new paint and interior. He decided to take a chance, put in a cheeky bid of £1,100 and at 4am when the auction closed he found he had won it! However, after picking the van up Mark says, “I realised I had maybe bitten off more than I could chew as all the new panels that had been replaced were actually fitted over the old rusty ones!” Despite this, Mark started the process of stripping it…
