Cheers dude.
Your bus was one of my main highlights of the weekend. Insane survivor. Everything different to my bus but both cool, this is what makes me love the VW scene.

Re: 52 Samba

We then left the show 1.30 on the Sunday and drove straight to cornwall. Needed to be at work for 9 Monday :bom:
A cancelled ferry and a transit flipping on the A30 in front of us didn’t help 8O but home safe by 3am :compress:
