Well, my time in Ohio has come to an end. The ’84 van unfortunately wasn’t as ready for me as I was for it. Having 2 tow-truck trips to the shop, it was time for me to say farewell to the VW and my dream of driving it.

We signed the title back over this morning and my grandparents hope to sell it to someone interested in restoring this gem. I also said farewell to my amazing grandparents. We had a great weekend together making this trip worth it after all!

But now I’m off to the South to see more family and maybe…just maybe…get a car. We shall see as I board here in Dayton for Charlotte in just an hour.

Here are some pics in honor (hopefully not in memory) of the van…
