Congratulations Cyndi and Doug on winning the 2014 Jerome Jamboree XXIV 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. 

Every year the ABC restores a pre-1968 split window bus and we raffle it off to a lucky winner for $.50 a ticket at our big event, the "Jerome Jamboree" in Jerome, AZ usually the third weekend in September. 

Raffle tickets are sold only at the event and YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN! 

Thanks and enjoy your Bus!

MT PINAL CAMPOUT  May 15-17, 2015 Near Globe, AZ. (FREE event)
Join your bus camping friends for a scenic weekend spring trip that is 17 miles up an easy gravel road to the top of Mt. Pinal near Globe, AZ (only 80-miles from Phoenix) Directions: Head east on Hwy-60 and just before Globe, AZ you will see a stoplight where Hwy-88 heads north...this is where you head south on Russell Rd. Pay attention to the street signs as Russell Rd. zigs and zags through town before it turns into a gravel road. The gravel road is not well marked...just stay on the most beaten path and as long as you are still going "up" you are on the right road and you wont miss our camp at the very top. You'll be rewarded with one of the most stunning views you can see from a bus. Lots of hiking and mountain biking opportunities. When feeling lonely the forest service lookout will invite you to join him in the tower that's 7600 feet above sea level. The weather changes without warning so camp under the trees and expect 85-35 degree temps, fog, hail, ferocious winds, insect swarms, rain and thunder that will crack your ear drums. In other words perfect for camping in a bus. Oh, and a few of the rabble bring along fire arms which they expend at a range at the bottom of Mt. Pinal. There will be a ridiculous Saturday evening pot luck so bring your favorite dish.
