Welcome at Hazelarmstrong.com

Hazel Armstrong (1964 VW split bus) has been back on the road since July 2005, after the completion of a 3 year restoration (and the consumption of plenty of beer). Over the years we have enjoyed numerous unforgettable trips along the European and British Atlantic coastlines. 

We hope that the restoration information and articles provided on this website will help our fellow amateur mechanics through the darker times of the restoration process: the moments when things don't go as you planned and when you start thinking of alternative methods to get rid of this useless, rusty hump of steal. Thoughts of burning it down to the ground or pushing it of the nearest cliff... We have been there, but we guarantee that persistence pays off: there is nothing like driving around in your 'self-made' van!
