VW Numero Uno

What we have here is a sweet 1970’s T2 VW bus. This lovely lavender people-mover has obviously been put to good use, as you can tell by the tin foil curtains and suction cup Garfield. This excellent example with some sort of removable roof segment (ex-camper?) was found in Robert Moses Beach parking field 5.

Now for the interesting information. This picture was taken on or around April 15th, 2007. It was a chilly “spring” afternoon and was preceded by a lovely walk on the beach. We’re all pretty sure that it was the beautiful Crystal (the lady on the left) who pointed out this fantastic “road-trip” vehicle machine in the parking lot. We discussed road-tripping and how the VW would be the most suitable of all the vehicles to trip in, that is if it would actually turn on. And thus we decided to commemorate that lovely moment in time by taking a single photo in front of this purple and white VW (we pretended for all the onlookers that it was actually our own). Little did we know that this single photo would lead to us searching out EVERY VW Van in the world.com. Enjoy.
