Trailer - The Bus
Everyone who has ever owned a VW bus loves them. We had one for many years, and not a day goes by that we don't regret the decision to sell. Having owned many cars, not one of them holds a place in our heart and our memories that the bus we owned does to this day. We are constantly looking through classifieds for just the right replacement, and we think it'll be sooner than later that we jump back in the VW bus club. And that is just what it is, a club. We were waved to constantly on the road, stopped in traffic and told the bus was awesome, and stopped at every camp site and curb side parking space to answer questions and give an impromptu tour of the vehicle. Sure...there were mechanical issues here and there, but that is part of the experience, and to be honest, they're far simpler and cheaper to solve than any modern car. It was then just a matter of time that someone immortalized the bus on film in a documentary dedicated to the little bus that could, and the people that own and love them. The film has played the Big Sky Film Festival in Montana, the Full Frame Documentary Festival in Durham, and the Maui Film Festival, all giving glowing reviews. Out on DVD soon, you can pre-order your copy here, and see for yourself what all the fuss is about.
