I thought I recognised the reg....a mate of mine owned it in the Nineties .
His name was Dean Marshall,maybe he bought it off of Grahame as he had it for a long time.

10+yrs later a person I worked with (Shaun) bought it and spent a bit just keeping it roadworthy,it has done the rounds in our area .

Just a quick reply, met Graham a few times over the last 25 years and he comes across as a very honest, enthusiatic, trader. One of the few I can count of on one hand I could recommend to anyone. Beetleben you come across as a total **** :)

So is someone going to tip-off FBI that it's for sale?

Perhaps someone that knows him?

:( hopefully the new owner will scrub that paint off and find the blue circle

Hope you get it back at a fair price, we've an emotional bond with our bus over the years of fun, so I can only imagine what it would be like to get it home.

Street Tuff, Double Trouble and the Rebel MC. I've still got that on 12 inch! And Back to Life come to think of it. Er .. and Buffalo Stance on a Now album : ). I went to Bug Jam 90 in my 67 1500 bug. The first Bug Jam where it rained. Loads more people turned up than expected, mainly thanks to that Def 2 programme on BBC2 (Yo! Bug Jam and all that). We queued for hours to get out. I haven't been back to the Pod since 8O
