Hello, just wanted to say hello.

I typed KAV 640 into google and i was brought here, my dad (Brian) had the van when i was just a kid and i was surprised to see an old picture on here. I miss the old vw shows and unfortunately i miss my dad also, he passed away in 1999 but I've been left with the vw affection. :)

My brother spoke to the current owner a while back and it was great to hear the old van is still out there and more importantly it's getting used.

I used to go to Doune with me mam n dad in the 90's, there was a fella called (I think) Craig who had a sealing wax red n beige splitty camper(Devon?)

The story as I remember it was he was contacted by the widow of the origal owner who was trying to purchase a new rear screen after a brick got thrown thru it thru the garage window.

He bought the camper off her, and it was PROPER mint it even had a little old 60's camping trailer to go with it!!

Anyone know the camper I mean?????

I'll try find a pic??
