I think Rich Kimbal did a story on that in Hot VWs a while back, neat story. You can still buy the coffee beans with a bus on the bag, but it shows a Deluxe. Its in the July 2006 issue.

For a bus that's been so "traveled", it looks amazingly straight! Shocked

I sell the "non-keeper" copies for a buck. If it's recent enough, a "non-keeper"and I still have it, you can take it. Cool

However, I'll need to know what edition it was, i.e. month & year. Confused

"Does" or "doesn't"? Confused

If yours is readily available, go ahead and give him it. I'll have to look into my stash and that might take a little time. Cool

I bet you can get free coffee everytime you show up in the Bus.

Dang, nice bus. Cool score. Where in Spokaloo was it? My in-laws still live there. In fact, I'll have to rib my father-in-law for slacking off on his search for VWs for me! Laughing

Diedrich coffee is no more, they were recently purchased by starsucks. The one a couple blocks from my house has already been closed and converted, and re-opened. When I heard they were purchased/closing, I went by just to get a few bags of "bus beans". I only bought one, and the girl gave me a couple doz. empty bags as they would not be needing them.
