    Short Time Owner--Good Memories

    I sold a couple of cars this year and thought I should have a VW Camper as I did while in the Navy in 1972. A friend found a 1971 in Orlando this October that is so original it came with bill of sale, original title, maintenance history, etc. Absolutely beautiful. My 17 year old and I flew from Michigan to Orlando and drove "Claire" home. No bad news here, she ran like a top and only blew a tire 50 miles from home--and we put on the 41 year spare to make it the rest of the way. My granddaughter, Claire, and I are now using it this winter for tea parties. It will be so much fun come spring.
