Our little Green Volkswagen Bus
We have a customer at my bank and he drives a Volkswagen bus and in fact he drives the same style, down to the same color of van that my mom hauled us around in as kids in Northern California, the only difference was ours had a tire on the front. The other day he let me go out and look inside the van and take pictures. It was honestly so nostalgic for me and brought back a flood of good memories. The seats were the same, the floors, even the stick shift. I spent a good portion of my childhood in that van and have some great stories of that van.
The best story is that the sliding door started falling off and my mom was driving some kids from church to early morning seminary (a class high school age kids take for church) and one of the teenagers she dropped off went to close the door and it came off in his hands, so he was just standing there holding the door in his hands.
So Nelson family these pictures are for you. Oh and once this one got old, we upgraded to a new grey Volkswagen van that also moved with us to France and I drove in High School. Good times!
The interior looks just like ours did
I remember those rubber like flours and my mom hosing the car out, which is so much easier than vacuuming
The good old green bus!
