Deadline day and we are just back from Split Bus Nation in Belgium – what a weekend that was! On the Friday as we drove down from Rotterdam the temperature hit 39.5 degrees – I was actually relieved we were not in a Split (the joy of air con and no worries about overheating engines) – until we got there and then I wished we still had one! The weekend is “split” (yes, in every sense): Friday was get together and enjoy the special Split Bus Nation brew and learn the mysteries of Kubb (basically chuck batons to knock over blocks, sounds easy but isn’t) as well as make new friends and renew old ones; Saturday afternoon saw 44 Splits line up and cruise to an “alternative” art museum and…

Built in February 1967 as a Pearl White Panel Van, it was imported to the USA by California based convertors Sundial. They had begun converting VWs in the early sixties in response to demand that could not be met for Westfalia models.

don’t scrap it, re-invent it!

A 1972 Pick Up had had been sitting in Miri’s premises for some considerable time, and though restoring it as a Single Cab was an option, it really was a bit too far gone. As there was another Bay Pick Up in the yard, also in a dire state, Miri decided to do something radically different and create a Recovery Truck fusing both Pick Ups, which he could use for breakdowns and transporting projects.
