We owned a 1975 from Dec 1974 till Oct 1986. And as grand kids started arriving I bought another one...a 1985 Vanagon June 1998 (it had heat and AC). All the nieces and nephews have memories of the Bus Gus as nephew Ed tagged it. We have photos of his son at 9 months then 9 years old. Hope to attach here. There have been many great campouts and trips to the beach. My most memorable was driving through a blizzard with all the kids bundled up in the back and scrapping ice off the INSIDE of the windshield. The air cooled engines never had good heat let alone no AC. My eldest grandsons got a trip Florida, New York, Michigan and back to Florida. Still own and hope to make more memories with the Bus Gus.
