  1. Hi All,

    New to the forum and to Bay life. This post is a bit bitter sweet.

    My wife and I have taken ownership of a 1974 VW Bay High Top, Some of you will know her as Clarissa which has been owned and very much loved for the last 5/6 years by my father-in-law Colin (moortarn on the forum).

    Unfortunately Colin sadly passed away at the beginning of June. We just couldn't let her leave the family and after very little deliberation we have taken her on to love and cherish for many years to come.

    We need a bit of time to get her running right again, get used to her quirks and then we will be out and about at events. We are very much looking forward to meeting everyone and would love to exchange stories we have about Colin .
