Hi Volks,

Have I got a story for you....

A few years ago a young man from windsor joined our local online VW
mailing list, having just purchased a very rough 1972 Riviera camper.
He wanted to restore the bus, and needed help. He was working at the
local grocery store and poured a ton of $$ into rebuilding the
engine, suspension, steering and tires. Not long after he decided on
a career in the military. He and another list-member had just
finished the engine rebuild when he was called up for Basic Training
with the Army, and after a year at CFB Petawawa he decided on a tour
of peacekeeping duties overseas in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Just before he got back, one of the members of our group remarked at
a camp-out that it would be a nice thing to do if we got together and
finished off the work on his bus before he got back.... sort of like
a real-life "Over-haulin" kind of thing. We called it "Project:
Yellow Ribbon".

You can read the story and see the pics here:
