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!
