Transporters And A Few Bikes Too
Right Bus Lovers and Transporternauts issue 74 is one not to be missed, it is packed with Lovely Dubbery. I’ll have to be brief because there’s so much inside. I’ll start with the features, because that’s what we do!
Feature one is a T5 from the Wozz=avan stable, an LWB Olympian blue camper. Feature two is an Ex-AA T4, not a tired old panel, but a cool, restored home built example in the famous golden hue. Feature three is a swamped T5 Doka, a unique custom build from the very top drawer, a drawer so tall you’d need a Swamper to reach it! Feature four heads in the other direction, a slammed red T4 on hydros, the suspension custom built by the Slambassadors for the owner. Feature five is a T6 built by VW-T in Sussex, grey, groovy and the result of an almost lifelong ambition. Feature six is a Crafter, we haven’t had one for a while, this one was built by R Hales as a luxurious camper and mountain bike hauler.
There is, in truth, quite a lot of bike action in this month’s issue. Our resident triathlete and van dweller Hélène Rossiter is peddling furiously in both Slovenia and Croatia. And we take a look at biking professional, social media star Danny MacAskill’s T6, it turns out he’s one of us. Elsewhere, Simon went to West Wittering for a Mini and VW meeting, Anne went to Oxfordshire to meet a Dub Club and Dave went to Elemental VW for some old-fashioned VW show fun, Andrew learns how to paint with Raptor and Steve went to Rap Pop-tops for the guided tour. Then there are our columnists, in Autoholics’ kitchen the chef is baking biscuits, Alan got muddy at the Adventure Overland Show and David went to Wales in his California, but slept in a rented cottage, he really is getting old now…
There is, of course, more, but in time honoured fashion you’ll need to buy a copy or better yet subscribe to find out what.
