VW Days

58 Bus This weekend, we attended the annual VW show out at Bandimere Speedway. I was in heaven with so many nice bugs and buses around.

I was so inspired by the show that I tried to attend the Colorado Bus Club meeting tonight (30 miles south). I made it about 5 miles before the wipers quit working. It wasn't raining, but the road was wet and I definitely needed wipers. So I pulled off the road and tried to figure out what went wrong. It seemed to be something had gone wrong with some sort of voltage changer I had in my dash. It's a square piece of porcelain that acts as a conductor of sorts for 3 different cables (lights and wipers I think). Anyway, it was cracked pretty bad and hot. I could tell it'd been repaired before, as there was melted glue all over it. I tried to fix it, and I did get the wipers working again - but soon noticed a plume of smoke from my dash. At this point, I decided to abandon ship, disconnected the wires and drove back home.

The funny thing is that this is just the day in the life of an old VW owner. Hopefully in the next few years, "Daddie's Bus" will become a new VW and these problems will be a thing of the past. Yeah right.
