2005 Houston Art Car Parade - T2 Sightings in the Heights and Washington Avenue
There are three known Buses seen on the streets of H-town these days - with non-VW art cars in the background. Almost every air-cooled VW (including T2s) have been sought after as art car projects - one has to locate alternative projects...

My wife and i picked up the bay in Scotland while living there to travel Europe. After an Aussie "house enamel" paint job, re-fit with fridge(for beer), hinging stove near sliding door, c.d.,new bed and more storage we were off for 4 1/2 months. Making carbi gaskits somewhere in Germany was fun!

Mid December last year I got this crazy idea after watching a local Christmas parade. My kids and wife though I was nuts. This big ornament ended costing about $300, but I think it was worth it. I'm working on getting my notes together on how I did the light set-up. So email me if you want the PDF.
