Congratulations Darla Amastasin of Phoenix, AZ on winning the 2016 Jerome Jamboree XXVI Raffle Bus...a 1962 Double Door Panel!!!

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 raffles off a VW bus at our big event, the "Jerome Jamboree" in Jerome, AZ usually (but not always) 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!

Jerome Jamboree XXVI September 16-18 2016

It is a 1962 Double Door Panel (DDP) and we have began thrashing on it. See details for the next raffle bus work party at the bottom of this page or on our Yahoo Group.
