We have been working on a full restoration for the last year – an early Bay Dormobile – and the project is now reaching a very exciting stage when all the hard work starts to come together. The restoration has been commissioned by Gecko Campers in Brighton and will soon have a new life on the south coast.
The engine has been cleaned and refurbished and has now come to life!

First Test Drive
A few years ago Rog did most of the restoration work on this Crew Cab including converting it from Left Hand Drive to Right Hand Drive and fitting a Rack & Pinion Steering system. Good to see the van has come back for a few running repairs.
Stevie is an excellent photgrapher, whose work is used as a feature image for our website and for our Facebook page:

Rog recently got out his quill pen and, using his best joined up writing, wrote to the VolksWorld Magazine letters page…This is the letter wot he wrote:
I took these photos in 1967, when I was 13 and lived in Hanworth. I regularly cycled over to see the buggies being built: 552 GRR was GP’s own promo vehicle and KCH 959 belonged to a member of staff.
Due to my lifelong interest in VWs I have recently opened my own workshop restoring and repairing all types of VWs situated in Longbridge Deverill, Wiltshire. Our company is called VW Camper & Classic Repairs.
I hope they are interest to you and your readers.

We were really pleased to take part in the Vintage Nostalgia Show this year at Stockton Park in the Wylye valley, Wiltshire. Fashion blogger Adora Mehitabel spotted our van and used it as the backdrop for a photo shoot…
We were really pleased to see Herbie this week on his way to Monte Carlo.
Thanks to Holly Aquilina we now have a new company Logo. See if you can work out the image in the middle…
