When I thought of the theme I thought of all those long hours Steve spent under Rosie and how it was a labour of love to keep her on the road. I also thought of all of the places we had been as a family and the memories we love. Then I thought of members who enjoy their vans in so many different ways. Weddings, proms, funerals all aspects of owning, using and loving our vans and those close to us :) Practically any van picture could be submitted under this months theme as we all have someone we love (and I am sure most of the time we all love our vans!).

Here goes then. This is my Nov. 59 Kombi - not the prettiest thing in the world but totally rust and filler free and all original metal and paint. 2332 motor, IRS, original beam with flipped spindles, Zig CF9 Caravan battery set up with 240v hook up, WiFi and an awesome sound system. Rock and roll bed and that's about it. She's ugly, uncomfortable, loud and gives me the occasional grief but I reckon she deserves to be Van of The Month. I also take her everywhere and she gets lots of regular use. Often seen in the mountains, motorways and coastal roads of Andalucia and Portugal.

Love is...
Sitting in your bus, in the garage, just because you like the way it smells.

If this isn't love nothing is !

My bus was bought on the night my wife went into labour with little Sam.

He'll be 4 in March and it's very nearly finished.

It's been my phone piccy for the last year :D

These are why i love the vdub scene,i was lucky enough to have been born into it,grew up with my dads 52 split bug,hence why i've always owned vw's . My daughter's first car was a bug,my son's a mk1 caddy. The next generation has started to feel the love for them too. My little grandaughter loves getting in my buses,her mum has been left one in my will so she might get to drive it one day for real :)
