Here is our story
(Inspired by true-ish events)

Let me take you on an adventure, one that goes way, way back to the year 2020. Like many stories this story starts out in a land far, far away. A magical oasis in the middle of the desert where dreams become reality, a place full of warm-hearted people, where smiles grow on trees and kindness is around every corner-- no I’m not talking about Pahrump-- I’m talking about Las-freaking-Vegas. I truly believe Gandhi was talking about Vegas when he said, “a smile don’t cost a thing suga”.  Anyways, there we were smack dab in the middle of the nationwide shutdown doing our daily walk when, BOOM, it hit us, an idea so revolutionary, so imaginative, so insane it just might work… We should submit an audition video to Survivor, show the world our survivor skills, and walk away with a cool million. Well we did that, and not only did they reject us, they told us our survivor skills were so bad they were honestly surprised we were still alive.

 

After putting most of our eggs in that basket we didn’t have much left. On our last ditch effort for a lifetime of happiness, we had one more golden egg idea… A Tinder for cats and dogs. It was a foolproof plan, the only problem was they lacked the fingers to swipe. Welp, after that epic fail we hit rock bottom. 0-2 on good ideas.

 

Now it's hail mary time, one more mistake and it’s game over. After many hours of putting pen to paper and tossing ideas into a waste basket we finally wrote down an idea that would change our lives and the world forever… A VW photo booth bus. Originally, we wanted to implant an Artificial Intelligence electronic computer module in the VW like K.I.T.T. in Knight Rider but after doing more research we found out that show wasn’t real. So, we’re keeping it classic. Restoring a 1970 VW wasn’t a walk in the park, she required a little elbow grease. But once we wiped that useless elbow grease off her she looked right as rain. Rescuing this 1970 VW bus from a life stuck in an old barn, to being restored and converted to a photo booth bus has been my life’s greatest accomplishment! Aside from my Dundies of course.

Before and After's

When we purchased the bus it was painted blue and full of hidden piles of dirt and deserted beehives. Here are some photos we took on our restoration journey. From flooring, to panels, interior and exterior paint, and more we chose to do all the work ourselves. We spent countless hours (many, many more than expected) getting this 1970 VW  ready for the spotlight.
