Hi everyone. Still finding my way around but this seemed like a good place to start.  
Our kombi adventure started a few months ago when I had one of those birthdays with a '0' in it that makes you step back and look at life and the odd crazy idea starts to grow and gather speed. Once our 6 and 4 year old boys had got wind of it there was no going back. A day out at Busfest followed and a keen eye kept on the classifieds etc. There seemed to be very few vehicles coming onto the market so the project was parked until next spring. Then out of the blue an opportunity came up and whilst it didn't tick every box it was fairly local. I made the mistake of going to see her with the family in tow - the boys immediately named her and wanted to take her home there and then.
Anyway a deal was done and SNOWY joined our family last week. She's an all white, Danbury conversion, first reg in 2006 so I guess one of the last air cooled.
She has one or two things we need to do to her and longer term there may be a splash of colour added - although I'm not sure how her name will fit then, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
Just got to wait for the weather to improve so the adventures can really begin! sunny sunny

Tim - a few of those visits in October were down to me. Well, it convinced me to take the plunge and I've learnt loads already.

Thank you all for your warm welcome !!!!!!!!!!!

Hello and welcome. 
I hope you like being the centre of attention. Since we got ours I can't believe the number of people that stop and stare or to ask questions or compliment on how nice the bus is Very Happy
