We moved!!!! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while but we’ve been busy and look it’s her first snow for this southern bus! I won’t be using her too much this winter, the kiddos would just be too cold in the back without adequate heat, I’m sure if you’re a VW you know what I mean.
I got frostbite in a1973 VW beetle on Christmas night back in1992 with the heat on, need I say more.
What do you think of the Newest version of the VW Beetle?
It’s definitely and improvement over it’s first makeover, I still love the old Beetles and think the lastest version lacks some of my favorite details like the chrome accents and the new front bumper design is quite bland.
VW seems to be doing away with their signature round headlights, but all and all the newest Beetle is something to look at!
This is the first in a new series of post: VW sightings, from now on I’ll be doing posting random photos of vintage VW’s I’ve seen as I wander about and would love if you joined in! So if you’ve had a VW sighting and snapped a pic please share the love, just email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll post it! Please include where the sighting was and any other info you can add like the model, year, or if it’s needing a new home!
Just a quick update: the weather has been amazing so the Peacemobile has been on the road this winter actually she’s given us 23,000 happy miles in the past 6 months, I don’t think she’s see that much highway in years! We’re still planning our summer road trip and I won’t go into a rant about oil companies it was bad enough they covered our beautiful beaches here in AL with oil, so let’s hope I can afford to keep her keeping on.
Happy Weekend Cruisin’

We a love sleeping in our VW camper vans I know at least 4 kids who would mind having their room decked out with a VW inspired bunkbed. I found a few versions online but I’m sure it’s not hard … Continue reading →
How cool this toaster? This is an original item from Volkswagen Japan. This is a must for every fan of VW’s breakfast table. We can not think of a better way to burn your bread in the morning. Volkswagen Minibus official VW Toaster is an item that is not sold in retail stores, not offered by VW dealers in Japan every year to the first 5,000 subscribers who bring their cars for inspection.
Happy New Year! and with what might be the last day of warm weather here as I must get the peace-mobile ready for winter or should I say hibernation. She is an awesome vehicle and I can’t image storing her for 3 months but with the temp dropping into the 20′s by Tuesday there isn’t enough blankets on Earth to keep us warm and having another vehicle equipt with heated seats and well heat I don’t think it’s a hard decision to make especially when you start to hear the chattering of little teeth, but she won’t be forgotten we are already planning some great adventure in peace-mobile for the spring and summer, the kiddos and I can’t wait! …….Or should I say GRAND adventures! Hint, Hint.
