Our New Year Resolution is to continue bringing you the best VW buses and stories about living with a bus and we have the whole spectrum this issue: original paint, patina rat, shiny resto, brand new custom. A 1966 13 window Deluxe Microbus in“barn find” condition with sun-bleached paint and battle-scarred body oozes character and charm but don’t be fooled by its looks! The cheekily 2WD badged  T3 with raised suspension and syncro style wheel arches may look ready for rugged action but is still a “work in progress” according to its owner. Showing what’ s possible when the starting point is basically a rolling shell, a ‘ 73 red and white themed custom camper sports a striking interior to match its one-off body colour, whilst at the opposite end of the spectrum is a brand new T6 Weekender, fitted with a Rolling Homes bespoke interior designed round a state of the art ICE equipment. A former Early Bay Microbus, latterly used/abused as a hire camper, has been given a new lease of life and had its Microbus heritage re-invented. Finally this month we have a beautifully restored 1958 single cab Pick Up, which has basically been in the same family since the early sixties. Many hours’  work went into getting the beaten up truck looking like it now does, and we just love the distinctive two tone red and ivory paint scheme, period correct colours combining to create a factory special order look. Lovers of vintage buses and period photos will be in bus heaven this month as Brochure Line digs up an early 60’ s VW publication that found the oldest surviving buses. We run the circuit at Le Mans, storm a Welsh castle, travel to the tip of South America, head off to USA to check out the Utah Classic, drop in on the IAA in Hannover to check out the latest VW commercials and go bus hunting in Greece– round the world in 80 pages! (Well you know what I mean ...). And check out the pictures of the Rail Bulli – a guest of honour at a Dutch Historic Railway event. Chase away those winter blues and grab your copy now!
