Farfegnugen

This weekend husband and I went to the VW Van Show here in town.
Son2 loves VW Vans and got us interested in them.
I had no idea there were so many types of these vans.  Everything from trucks, campers, passenger and hauling types.
I especially loved the people that made a little scenario with there van.  
The vans at this show were from 1950 to 1979.
Husband has decided that we need to purchase one of the camper VW's and take a cross country trip in it.
  I am not worried about this latest quest of his. 
 Only about 95% of his crazy ideas actually happen.
This was my favorite van. 
 It is a 1963 model. 
 Don't you just love the matching luggage in the back? 
 We talked to the owner who is from Kentucky. 
 Quite a lot went into restoring this. 
 This is one of 13 he owns!

Did you do anything interesting this weekend?
Go on a cross country trip in a VW Van perchance???

I love these old vintage vans.. I used to have a VW pop top camper van in the early 90's and I travelled all through the US in it..was so awesome EXCEPT of course, it broke down all the time!! LOL was part of the experience though and I sure met alot of interesting mechanics along the way!!
Mine was like the lime green one in the photo!!!

This makes me smile, I loved VW everything in my teen years, I collected so many models. I love the pick-up one and your favorite too. Two-tone green = awesome.

We saw a lot of baseball this weekend, my team beat my husband's - wahoo!

Wow, this looks so cool! My parents had a yellow bug back in the day. I like the seafoam van, too. The matching luggage is a definite plus!

Hi, thank you for your comments on my blog. I really appreciate it!
I spent the weekend taking care of my mother after she had knee surgery. A surgery I very well will have to be doing one day.
Just wanted to tell you how much I like your hair. It's really pretty!

I do love the VW Vans, but I owned two Bugs back in the day.

Cool. Back in the Sixties, my family went camping in a VW camper. The top popped up and an awning extended sideways. It was fun for a family with two small boys.
