About the 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 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 VW bus/van owners and all VW enthusiasts.
We love camping with friends in the desert, up in the pines, out on the coast, anywhere! The ABC attends all the big shows and we help our sister clubs just as they help us. We spend time working on our rides and welcome anyone interested in Volkswagen buses to join the fun. There is a Yahoo email group which comes in handy for setting up impromptu events or picking each others brains.
We restore a bus every year and raffle it off in September at our signature event, the Jerome Jamboree. Like always, the event is at the Historic Gold King Mine in beautiful Jerome, Arizona. Congratulations to Darla Amatasin on winning the 1962 Double Door Panel Bus at the 2016 event!
The ABC is an official 501-(c)-3 public charity and last year's proceeds from the event were divided up and donated to various charities. Past proceeds have been donated to organizatsions like the Jerome Volunteer Fire Department Auxillary, Arizona Humane Society and Make a Wish Foundation.
We meet monthly on the 3rd Wednesday of every month except December when there is no meeting because we get together at the Christmas party. 7pm is the suggested start time but come early to get a good seat, have some tasty grub, and meet some friendly folks. So come on in, enjoy the site, and hopefully we'll see you at a meeting or event soon! Visit the "meetings" tab for more information or contact a member of the AZ Bus Club!

If seeing your ABC friends at meetings and campouts isn't enough, you can now communicate with other members via the Arizona Bus Club Yahoo group. You can plan an impromptu campout, invite everyone to the drive-in on short notice, or just talk buses. Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to join, or click here if you already have a Yahoo account. This will allow you to send out emails to the group to discuss buses any time of the day or night.
