1966 VW Bus

Ronald Blendermann

Having been a trained machinist I happened to meet a Volkswagen that my mother bought from a neighbor to use to get to work at US Customs in Kennedy Airport. It was a semi-automatic VW Bug that looked like it was all-there.

As soon as I drove it I fell in love with Volkswagens and started my journey looking for a used VW. Through my search I found a 1966 VW Bus called a Campmobile abandoned deep in the owner’s woods. I negotiated the purchase price and proceeded to have it restored.
