I bought it in 2012/13 – from a friend who had originally imported it for himself.

Pretty much everything it’s a 100% complete rework. I wouldn’t say it was a quick project but the finished article is pretty cool, so it was worth the wait.

About You

Your Name(s): Shaun Welsh

Is this your first VW? 

I learned to drive in a Mark 2 Golf and I drive a VW California as my main vehicle.

Do you own any others? No

What got you into VW’s?

The Beastie boys ha ha 

Who enjoys your VW?

We regularly camp in the California – the kids love it

Where do you like to go in your camper?

I don’t take it too far to be honest. I drove my friend to his wedding the first day I took it on the road and it was one of the most stressful experiences ever.  I live in Cardiff and it seems every road has a speed bump, which makes driving it quite difficult (I’m considering lifting it slightly – you live and learn with these things that’s for sure.

Do you have any amusing or fantastically memorable stories whilst enjoying your VW?

As its pretty new on the road for me – my only real experience was that of the stressful wedding.
