Mark Paxton acquired his first VW Bus, a split screen van, nearly 30 years ago, followed by a Bay and then a few Beetles. A period without owning any of VW's iconic flat fours while running a garage dedicated to more Gallic motors was compensated for by a steady flow of friends. Buses to work on eased the pain. A move into classic car and motorcycle journalism was followed by the chance to intimately reacquaint himself with innermost workings of the Bay Window Transporter and write this book.
