Does anyone know where the woodpile bus landed, I heard it was headed to the UK? Did it survive the journey?

Yes, its landed fine, but its had to take a bit of a back seat due to an expanding family, which has needed some house modifications this year 😂

wow, interesting. I saw the white one in this thread, and I thought it might be a bus that some of my parts came from. ( So I was told), and the bus looked purpose built, so curious about it. Thanks!

The white one (and probably green one) is a Swiss observation bus. It was outfitted with special alternator or generator (cant recall) to power all the additional sirens and speakers. That pic was most likely snapped in 95ish at Daryl Adams in Ft Lauderdale. He was assembling a large collection of rare and odd VWs and sold it all off a few years later. A few of us were invited to come spend a day looking through the collection.

Not really.

They are ex Swedish Air force and were used as observation / reconnaissance vehicles.
The green is mostly original and still in Sweden from what I have read.

The white one used to belong to Darryl Adams back when he had tons of VWs.

easy mistake to make. Here in the US Switzerland and Sweden are often confused with each other. Not the countries, but the names

Thanks Uli...

Coming in a little hot brezelmeister. The country is what I forgot the exact detail on and you condemn my entire comment? Like I wasnt there and didnt hear correct😂 I have almost the exact picture from the same day, my guess is that pic belongs to Mike Brown...user SHSC. Carry on 🙄
