Say Goodbye to the Iconic VW Bus & Hello to One of Our Van Ornaments With This Giveaway

Uncategorized | | | 45 Replies

It’s so sad to say goodbye, but that’s what we have to do with the iconic VW Bus.

According to NPR, “Brazil is the last place in the world still producing the iconic vehicle, or ‘bus’ as it’s known by aficionados, but VW says production will end Dec. 31. Safety regulations mandate that every vehicle in Brazil must have air bags and anti-lock braking systems starting in 2014, and the company says it cannot change production to meet the law.”

    This ornament reminds me of when my son was little, his grandma would take him shopping in grandma’s Volkswagen bus. All you could see was his little head looking out the window from his car seat. :)Those were the days!!!

    Always wanted one of these cool looking busses. A couple arrived to their wedding this year in a yellow and white buss this year. Definately, one of my all time favorite memories.

    Oh I love this! We owned to VW vans and we hate that we ever sold either of them! This is an awesome ornament and reminds me of my own family! :)

    My Girl Scout leader used to pick all of us up after school every Wednesday in a VW bus….back in the early 1960s. Talk about memories!

    Each year I purchase tree ornaments for our children – they are all pretty much grown – for my oldest who has a VW of his own that he cherishes – I know this of all would be his favorite – Memories of Christmas
