Email editor@volkswagencamper.co.uk Address Editor, VW Camper & Commercial, Jazz Publishing The Old School Higher Kinnerton Chester CH4 9AJ www.volkswagencamper.co.uk With 2017 being the 50th Anniversary of the Bay Window model, look out for some impressive displays planned at various shows this year! Whilst we will not be doing anything specific like a year on year line up at Camper Jam, we will be extending the Early Bay display invitation to include Late Bays – so hopefully we will have a great turn out to mark the anniversary year. Despite pestering VW, they don’t seem to be mounting anything special (yet), so it’s down to us Brits to fly the Bay flag! And just to get you in the mood, check out this month’s Brochure Line, which showcases the new 1969 Eurovette, Caravette and Torvette…

classic 21st century camper

Maurice Coull has been into VW’s since 1988, when he swapped a Mini for a Golf GTI and almost immediately became a tuning addict, crow-barring 16 valves into Mk1’s and the mighty VR6 into Mk2’s. Numerous engine conversions followed, while regular visits to GTI International were high on his agenda. Then the air-cooled bug bit in the mid 1990s, thanks to his then girlfriend Morag, now his wife. Houses and children might have pulled Maurice in a different direction, but the truth of it was and is that Volkswagens are in his blood. With the imminent arrival of his first daughter, The couple needed a camper-van that didn’t demand countless hours in the garage. He’d taken his pride and joy, a ‘63 of Swedish origins, off the road after ten years…

European Bug-In The Original Bug-In started way back in 1968 on the American West Coast and it quickly grew into THE major VW event which lasted for just 15 years... Today the Bug-In name has a legendary status. And once again, this show concept lands on Belgian soil under the EUROPEAN BUG-IN flag! This event was conceived with the approval and support of Richard Kimball, one of the original Californian Bug-In Promotors. This year we will include a celebration of ten years of our European Bug-In event which is three full days of Swap Meets & traders together with almost non stop drag racing action and some off road fun thrown in. The Seventh European BUG-IN will be held at CHIMAY in Belgium, just a few kilometers from the French border. Chimay is…

I only really got into the air-cooled stuff a couple of years ago. I had just sold my Mk1 Golf GTi, when I stumbled across a single cab bay, which struck me as something I could use for surfing, kayaking and biking. A proper, usable second car, not just something to take out for a drive on a fine Sunday afternoon”. This early single cab was imported from Australia in mid 2007 when its first UK owner completed some restoration work and changed the colour from the original white to matt black with red bumpers and wheels. Almost exactly seven years later it passed into the hands of Dave Crook who, “Did his magic, turning an ugly duckling into a swan. It was completely stripped back to bare metal, re-painted in Java…
