What a time we had in Sacramento the first weekend of May – VWs, nice people, having fun and doing good. There’s no better combination.
For more information see the Ranch Run website … http://www.theranchrun.com/
The Ranch Run website describing the VW community’s support for the 2013 event in aid of local charity ‘Ride to Walk’
It was a hot day! I managed to find my old hat buried inside my VW and our T shirt from last year’s cross country drive for MG Awareness and VW4Causes …..
Doing my bit as one of several VW drivers in “The Ranch Run 2013″ for Sacramento charity ” Ride to Walk”

After this photo appeared on VW Bus Junkies – Classic VW Bus Owners and Fans … it had received almost 90 likes by the time I saw it today a week or so later …
I apologize for not being able to give credit to the photographer of this great picture; source was not shown on VW Bus Junkies facebook page.
“My brother used a ’57 and hauled the whole band out to Eastern Long Island in ’65 to open for Mitch Ryder. I used my ’58 to haul a Hammond B3 and 2 Leslie speakers [yes they fit] with other stuff. ['57-8] Both were 36 HP, and made it to many gigs!”
If you have any colourful stories to share from the 60s, please add them in the box below …. thank you!

I am planning to sell my collection of ‘mostly VW’ tee shirts (and other VW memorabilia) to raise money for VW4CAUSES for more campaigning for MG and other autoimmune diseases. These are new, never worn, special edition T shirts collected on my drive across the USA from Massachusetts to California in between Oct 2011 and May 2012.
Can you please vote for which one you like most or pick your 1st, 2nd and 3rd?
I’ve numbered them to make it easy for you to refer to each.
