As I mentioned in my last post about the 2012 VWs on the Green show, I had been working quite hard for the last few months trying to get Gus ready to drive to the show. I drained the gas …

So for the last three years I have been saying that I would drive Gus to the next VWs on the Green show. For the past few months I have been working to get Gus roadworthy, and it’s finally paying …

Spring Cleaning

http://randum.info/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/P1010034-225x300.jpg

Musings on the 2012 VW Beetle and the Bus concept

http://randum.info/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/2012VWBEETLE_2-300x154.jpg
