Congratulations Cyndi and Doug on winning this year's Jerome Jamboree Raffle Bus...a 1966 Sundial Camper!!!

Arizona Bus Club

The ABC is an Arizona-based, family-oriented club, dedicated to the restoration, preservation, and enjoyment of the Volkswagen Transporter. We are a collection of drivers and hobbyists whose preferred mode of transportation is old air-cooled VWs, preferably buses. If that sounds like the kind of crowd you'd like to hang out with, come to our monthly general meeting or look us up at a show. The club is open to all Type II owners and all VW enthusiasts. 

Thanks and enjoy your Bus!
