here's to 2021

It's been a mad year, and like a lot of folk I guess, I'll be damned pleased to see the back of it. The thing 2020 has demonstrated, though, is just how important our Transporters are to us. In the gloomiest moments they've provided an escape from all the craziness, some hope and a twinkle of light at the end of a tunnel with the promise of endless adventures in 2021. And the attraction of a Camper hasn't gone unnoticed by the population at large. In fact, with people choosing to ditch their usual week on a crammed Spanish beach in favour of holidaying closer to home, now everyone wants one! You can't help but feel a little smug that we were all there first! I took over from James Peene as…

A little enthusiasm goes a heck of a long way. Not just when it comes to seeing a restoration through to completion – that goes without saying – but also when you’re talking to a jaded motoring hack about your vehicle. Believe it or not, there are times it feels like pulling teeth when compiling the info to write these features. Sure, not everyone has the gift of the gab, but if you can’t muster the enthusiasm to wax lyrical about your VW, or the one you’ve just restored for someone else, well it stands to reason that it will make for a dull telephone conversation and feature, doesn’t it? Blood from a stone anyone? Picking peanuts out of pooh? You get the drift. Obviously we’re not about to say that…

SAY A VIRTUAL HELLO! Give us a quick heads up on your latest project With Covid-19 we’ve had fewer opportunities to get out and about to say hello and see what you’ve been up to. And to say we’ve missed you all is an understatement. Therefore we’d like to invite you to pull up a virtual chair and have a chat. Tell us what you’re driving, what projects you are currently working on and basically let us in on what you’ve got planned for 2021 on the VW Transporter front. Go nuts and do it today by emailing a picture of you with your van to camperandbus.ed@kelsey.co.uk. We’d also be interested to hear about your experiences of buying a Bus, and any epic stories about the trips you’ve done so far. And if…

“We named her ‘Wendy’ after my mum who would have loved to know that we used some of the money to buy something we would have some adventures in” Nick Toogood, T25 Bus Eight years ago I was driving home from my job in the funeral service when I saw a bright yellow Bus parked on the main road with a ‘for sale’ sign in the window. My mum had not long passed away and had left me some money so I got home and told my girlfriend about the Bus and she reluctantly agreed to go and see it with me. As we neared the van she took one look at it and said, “I am NOT getting in that,” and she wouldn’t even get out of the car to look. The…

This wonderful Westfalia is the handiwork of Essex-based petrol head and all round good guy, Norman Gregory. Norm has been VW-mad since ’95 when he picked up his first VW project, a stock Beetle, which he restored, modified and, of course, lowered. That was a 1500 model and the first of a string of Beetles, before Norm eventually found himself in the market for a Camper. This ’78 2.0 US-spec Westy is actually a Berlin Deluxe (SO76/1) model, which was originally imported from the States to the UK by fellow VW hounds, Paul Boosey and ‘Honest Jon’. Paul and Jon were looking to flip this particular vehicle and, as Norm put it, “I was in the right place, at the right time with cash in my back pocket,” hence a deal…

“Not only was the Bus in great condition and 99% complete, but all of the history was still present” Buying an old VW with a known history is usually a given, especially in the UK. Afterall, it’s rare to buy a car here with no paperwork or an uncertain ownership record. However, in the States things are a bit different. Having been personally importing cars from across the pond for almost 20 years, I’ve got used to ads that say ‘No paperwork’ or ‘Lost title’. If you’re in the know when it comes to exporting cars from the US, then you’re probably well aware that you can’t ship a car out of the country these days without a title. Not that something like this would matter to Gene Balyasny, a resident…
