Catching Vintage Surfari Wagons on their road trip

For a few years now (maybe 2) Bill from Vintage Surfari Wagons has lead a group of his buses over to the annual Buses By The Bridge in Lake Havasu, AZ. It's a big, classic get-together for VW buses and Bill is over south of L.A. so the trip make sense. (You may recall that Rell, a VW bus we rented from Bill in 2006 was the reason we bought Big Blue)

Paula, who is Monty's wife (Monty is Big Blue's previous owner) has caught the fever of documenting VW buses. She saw these going down the road and she happened to have caught the Vintage Surfari Wagons crew headed to Lake Havasu.

Bus on, brothers! Good to see them on the road.

Ever wonder what happens to The Bus Bus when it dies?

Those of you who follow this blog know that I adore the creation I have dubbed, "The Bus Bus". It's truly an invention of great pride for the creator and driver. What is a Bus Bus? Behold:

Ever wonder what happens to The Bus Bus when it dies? Well, people try to sell the VW parton Craigslist:

I may be the only one in history who thinks this is as sad as cutting up a VW bus in the first place. I bet that Bus Bus had style... I have no idea what use these could be now other than a small patch for another bus. They should have just stayed on The Bus Bus...

Random VW sighting in Yucca Valley, CA, by Big Blue's PO

Monty, Big Blue's original owner, still stays in touch via email from time to time. Especially when he sees an old bug or bus going down the road. 

Here's one he sent me last week along with his description:

1962 Beetle
Totally cherry
$7000 (coca cola cooler included!)

I love the wolfburg emplem on the trunk
