meanwhile nice VW bus pictures are loading.
This was our camper bus made
in 1974, we drove about 15,000 miles through Europe without a lot of trouble.
When we bought this bus we didn´t know that there were so many volkswagen freaks
around. Now we have the virus too. That´s why I made this web page. De official
name is T2, but everyone has his own name. Our family name is "bussie".
I would like to try to collect all aircooled names. T1, T2, T2a, and T3 are
the factory names they are a bit boring !! In the VW name page I collect the names I found so far. Help me to
find more! Please send me a email,
with your own bus name, any comment or suggestions are welcome as well.
