It’s that time again ………. The Winter O.C.T.O. Meet. Though it did not feel like winter at all, more like a typical summer day. That’s southern California weather for you. Normally it rains on this show, but not this time. The sun was out in full force as well all the Bus enthusiast. Today’s Bus meet tally was 252!!! It was an amazing sight to see the endless line of pre-1967 VW Buses anxiously awaiting to get inside. This was a very large turnout for a winter meet. Felt as if were the June event. Needless to say there were tons of beautiful Buses on display as well TONS of parts for your ride for sale everywhere. I was more stoked about this event as I was finally able to bring out my 1954 Kombi, which has been sitting for a very long time! Talk about Bus depression …….. ha!
Good times and now I’m looking forward to the June summer meet, which is always a treat.
Here are a few pictures of the NOS parts stash being sold by Herr Glen Bornhoff of Der Fatherland. Very cool and super rare early Bus parts for sale at this spot. Verstehen sie mich!
An NOS Barndoor 53/55 Horn Button still in the box!!!
An NOS Steering column lock/ignition wire cover! Again, super rare and hard to find item.
Here’s Chino’s 13 Window Mouse Grey Deluxe. Super clean and nice bus.
There are my buddies, Max, Andrea & Armando, visiting from Roma, Italia ………. è stato un piacere conoscerti, ci vediamo presto! (picture credit goes to Karate Scott ....... HA YAH!!! )
