for the love of our VWs

For the love of our VWs. We are HUGE VW loving people. We own 6. Yes...6. My husband, eat, sleeps, and breaths VWs. Heather Ross, the fabric designer who designed the cute VW bus fabric in my camper windows has just posted a blog about wanting to find a BUS of her own. So I thought I would show off our babies a bit.

This is Yoda May and my husband. We will be restoring her for me, he has already started. She is a 1965 beetle.


Here she is just coming home from being in the woods for years. I got her in May so that's why I call her 'Yoda May'.
On the front of one of the buses we camp with. Not our bus, but I love this...


This is my "Thing". I don't know what year she is, my husband does. He will be restoring her too.



Here is the bottom of "Jaws", our camper. My husband making the bottom of her rust proof. :o) That's me to the left.




Here is "Jaws in the snow". We camp in her about once a month. She is our home away from home.




My husband and son helping to restore "Jaws".




Here are a bunch of the buses and beetle going to either FL to the Bulli Brigade or to the 'transporter' show in SC. I forget which one. Jeremy, my husband is always going to some VW show somewhere. LOL



An annual event. We go get out Christmas tree and have "Rusty" carry it home for us every year. The big dint in the right side is where a semi hit my husband going down the road. Scary. Rusty is all better now though. New back /side window in and the dint to gone. Jeremy welded in a whole new back corner piece.


Here is a full shot of "Rusty".


Here is "Charlie" our single cab. Not sure what year he is. My baby boy, Jonah named him and said " Charlie is mine.". So I guess one day, he'll be driving him.

Here is 'Papa Smurf", we were camping at the beach with her this time.

I don't have a picture of our 1956 oval beetle, I will have to take one soon and post it. She doesn't have a name or any paint on her right now. She is bit naked.

So awesome! And I thought we had a lot of Volkswagens! Thanks for sharing your photo album. We are currently looking for an old double door panel to add to the work force.
