Email from Rich who's van was stolen;

Dear Friends,

Many, Many, thanks to all of you Dub Detectives out there helping me look for my 13window Split.

After Returning Home from a Romantic three nights in Brittany France, deciding no to take the bus an opt for a bit of luxury B+B ( Big mistake!!) I was woken as we pulled onto the drive by my wife saying "where's the Bus !". After throwing a number of F##ks into the now, bare driveway, and explaining afterwards the necessary use of swear words to my 10year old son, I called the Police who were helpful but not positive about the return of my beloved bus.

I called the only people I can truly rely on in a crisis... My Friends
A special thanks to Tim, Pad, Jon, Richie & Jen, Dave, Jay, Glen, Scouse, and all the VW friends out there keeping watch both here and abroad.

I've owned her for 8 years and restored her, happy holidays, shows and the coolest wedding car a groom could wish for!

I can only describe It as feeling like a member of the family has gone missing, with your help there's hope for her return. many many thanks,

Richard, Carrie and Dylan X

P.S note to self :- Before buying shiny things for your Bus Or Bug invest in a big Shiny Alarm or Tracker Device the best you can afford !!

Sadly the bus still hasn't turned up.....Rich has accepted the insurance money and is now looking for a replacement.

Any ideas circa 10K?

The bus looks as if it's worth more than £10k
