Post Bill Bowman (BulliBill) from St. Charles, MO
Hi all,

I've just signed up, I'm Bill Bowman from St. Charles, MO. I have eight mostly old Vintage VWs. I'm heaviest into Buses ('59 Double-Door Panel, '59 Double-Cab Pick-up, '67 Westy Campmobile, '87 Westy Camper GL) as well as several other models of old VWs.

My wife and I host the long-running BNNTA VW camping event (Buses Nowhere Near The Arch) every Labor Day weekend in northeast Missouri. This upcoming event in 2014 will be our 29th one.

For the past five years I have been the author of the \"Transporter Talk\" column in Hot VWs magazine.

I am currently a member of at least nine local/national/international VW Clubs.

I hope to get to meet more and more VW enthusiasts from Missouri and the surounding States!

Bill Bowman

Wow! great to have you here.

Sounds like you have quite a collection as well. Hopefully I can make it to BNNTA! not sure if I can drag my wife away. there is a hate group going to branson on labor day weekend and I\'m sure she\'ll want to go protest.

Good to meet you.


I\'m started to feel a bit odd being the only person around here who ONLY owns type 1s. :(

Maybe I should start BNWNTA2 (Bugs No Where Near the Arch) haha

Hey \"Mustard Madman\",

No, you should just drive your Bug to the next BNNTA camping event! We only discriminate against anything that is NOT Volkswagen. Since the beginnings of the event it has been open to ALL VWs of any model, and era. Yeah, the majority of attendees come in a Transporter but we're not limiting the event to them. We just require that to enter the campground/event in a vehicle that it be some sort of Volkswagen. We've enjoyed the company of new and old Beetles, Golfs, Rabbits, sandrails, you name it!

So load some camping gear in that Beetle and get on over and join all of us in Sept! It\'s pretty inexpensive also!

Let her do her thing in Branson, you come to BNNTA and do your thing. But hopefully you can both make it.

Hi Thorbus,

Hey, I think that's a shot of my '59 Double-Door Panel, although I'm not sure where it was taken and when. I love that bus, runs great and is comfortable to drive, and hauls a ton (almost literally!). I doubt it's the "Fastest" 40 hp, but maybe I should get one of those Formula Vee guys to build me a souped up 40 hp motor for it!
