For as long as I can remember, I've loved VW busses. I knew that at some point in my life I would own one, but it was always one of those dreams that I thought would happen "someday." Well, folks, this is a story about how "someday" sometimes comes a lot sooner than you expect.
Earlier this summer, I happened to be perusing the classifieds (as I often do) and found a beautiful 1973 bus for sale about 15 minutes from where I live. Not only was it 'ooochie orange', but it had automatic transmission and was in really great shape for a 40 year old vehicle. Of course, we went to see it the following day, and it was officially ours a week later. It is *so* much fun to cruise around in, and I'm looking forward to making improvements and roadtripping all over the place in this thing. I mean, just look at it and try not to smile!
You're smiling right? I know I am. :) :) :) :) :) :)
