Where it all began...

The VW Obsession

We have been passionate about Volkswagen campervans for over 30 years; what can we say, they just make us happy.   We have spent many a holiday camping in them around the UK,  lived and travelled around the coast in Australia in them, used them as our 'daily drives' to travel to and from work; to be honest we are a tiny bit obsessed by them.

The Old Camper Company wasn't created it sort of evolved without us realising it.   Friends and family have been borrowing our various campervans for their weddings for a very long time but we didn't really think anything of it, we were just so happy to share the love.   Then something changed; we sold our beautifully restored 1965 VW Splitscreen 13 Window Deluxe and bought 'a project' who was in much need of some TLC after a very unsuccessful race at Santa Pod the poor boy.  That little white (or should I say Lotus White) VW Splitscreen we called 'Hector'.   We just wanted to look after him, we just fell in love and so did everyone else.  He still had the original 1966 interior and rather than rip everything out and replace we decided to preserve his history, so he really is vintage.  

A few years later we added 'Barney' 1974 VW Bay Window Deluxe who is a rare automatic and he has been totally restored inside and out.

 

The last and by no means least, is 'Roobarb' 1977 VW Bay Window.   Roobarb is a little bit special and has been been Mick's work mate just forever; he is another rare specimen and has twin sliding doors so it is possible to see right through him, so amazing photograph opportunities to be had!  We have a few plans for Roobarb apart from wedding hire so watch this space...
