What is LiMBO?

     LiMBO stands for, the Late Model Bus Organization, international.   LiMBO was established, in 1988 by Zach Woods. Designed to help fellow owners and enthusiasts of 1968 and newer Volkswagen Type 2 Transporters, Vanagons and the Eurovan, maintain, restore, buy, sell and enjoy their vehicles. Membership is open to all owners and admirers of these vehicles, and ownership of a 1968 and newer VW Transporter is not a prerequisite to join.We currently sport thousands of members Worldwide.
      Our newsletter, The Transporter, is a bimonthly publication dedicated to late model VW Transporters. Each issue brings readers bus adventure stories, and useful information regarding the maintenance and restoration of these vehicles. All material is submitted by club members. The Transporter also helps club members nationwide and internationally keep in touch with each other through its classified ads and listings of LiMBO (and other VW club) events.
      LiMBO organizes and sponsors regional campouts and get togethers. Many of the larger VW shops and specialty Bus shops offer specials and discounts to LiMBO members.
     Once a year we publish, with NEATO, the 'Transporter Tourist and Travelers directory (TTT). In it is a volunteer list of members throughout the country who can offer assistance if you have a problem while your on the road. It may only be a camping space or a cup of coffee but its save a lot of people when they are having bus troubles.

      Membership is just 10 dollars

Did you know that March 8th 2010 marked the 60th Anniversary of the the beloved VW Microbus!!
Plus its been 65 years since Ben Pon dreamed up the little bus.
