'69 Bus: Camptastic!

Post by Ramrod » Jun Wed 18, 2008 4:59 pm

Last Saturday I picked up a new addition to the family just in time for fathers day. I've been thinking about it for a while, and decided what the hell, 5 cars isn't too many. :rolleyes:

His name is Sleepy, and he's a '69 Camper. The interior is in fantastic shape and includes a fridge, sink, bed, and storage. It needed a battery, and it fired right up and drove it back to Bozeman. Thanks Stones for the help! It's been parked since '02 and it's last big trip was to Alaska! Body has some bondo, so no plans to paint in the near future. Well maybe the wheels and bumpers, but he's going to be orange with the funktastic striping for a while. Can't wait for the first camping trip!

I'll post some newer pics later.

Some new pictures of her on the maiden voyage to Squaw Creek. She's no virgin, but at a certain point you realize that none of you are anymore and it doesn't matter.
