A new arrival

It's been a long time coming but finally after many years of yearning, we have purchased a beautiful 1965 Splitscreen VW. We've decided to christen her 'Pistachio' continuing along the ice-cream theme we have with Mango, Peaches & Malibu.

For most people 10 mins is all it takes to relax into a laid back vibe, where the journey there is all part of the fun, not just the destination.
