where half-arsed is a way of life
Lovely!I had a camper (VW "Atlantique")too, unfortunately it was stolen from outside my house on New Years eve, 2000... you haven't seen it have you? :)
My husband now desperately wants to know what an Atlantique is - is it another name for the Caravelle?
Sorry, my time in France has left its scars... of course it was "Atlantic", and, according to St. Wiki: "„Atlantic“ war die von VW nochmals aufgewertete Wohnmobilversion, die unter anderem Kunststoff-Isolierfenster hinten und eine komplette Beplankung besaß, und heute sehr gesucht ist."It was a T3 with Standheizung, etc., a terrific machine, and to this day I weep when I think of it, because I had only had it for about 9 months, and the worst thing was that (because my ability to read fine print in English is limited, forget in German!) I didn't have theft insurance, so it was a complete loss. My son's nearly new snowboard, used just 2 times was also in there.Since then (nearly 8 years ago now) I have not had a car at all.
