If you've read the Section "Our Porsche Journey", you'll see we have owned not only air-cooled PORSCHE cars, but also VW. Back when we started raising a family, we needed more room than our 356 had, so we bought a 1971 Volkswagen Bus.
Now we need extra room for dogs, not kids! Solution, a 1977 Volkswagen Bus- the year we got married!
I'll later change this website around to split the PORSCHE portion from the Volkswagen portion, but for now here is an introduction to Lucy, our new to us VW bus.
I looked for a few characteristics:
Back on Easter Sunday I took Miss April for a drive through the tulip fields of Washington. They are all in close proximity to Mount Vernon, Washington. I took some photos and then headed to my daughters house.
Several photos of the fields came out nice, but it was hard to get the car in position for good shots because there were crowds of people enjoying the beautiful flowers. Some photos of the flowers were great, but the bright sunshine on the car didn't always make for a wonderful 356 shot.
One came out ok, and I sent it to the editor of the Registry magazine. It missed the magazine deadline by a couple of days, but it's in the current July/August issue, page 7.
It is sort of underwhelming seeing it in a small size and in print, so I thought I would try to show it here in full pixel, the scenery was so beautiful it's hard to describe. Brilliant colors and a beautiful day.
Hope you like the photo- If you click on the image, it'll enlarge.
Here is the magazine page. I appreciate them including it, but if you want to get a better view of the brilliant colors, click on the photo ABOVE and it will enlarge.
