Robin Fearn has been involved in the VW scene for some 30 years, attending earlier VW shows such as VW Action at Stoneleigh, Bug-In at Malvern, also attending the first Bug Jam at Santa Pod (now in its 26th year!). This led to visiting various VW shows in Europe, such as Le Bug Show at Spa Francorchamps in Belgium, and a regular pilgrimage to Hockenheim in Germany to the famous Tuning Treffen, where you can see many Porsche powered buses negotiating the F1 circuit.
Having owned many VW’s from an early age (first car was a red Baja bug!) the result was to find a job working on his passion. After serving an apprenticeship in steel fabrication and sheetmetal work, Rob then gained employment restoring VW’s.
Mainly Beetles in the early days (body off restorations the norm) then splitscreen buses, bay windows, later specialising in the T3 or T25 as they are sometimes referred to in the UK.
Having a keen interest in Porsche powered buses the inevitable was to happen which resulted in Rob moving into restoring Porsche 911’s and the odd 944!
Then Busmeister was born and all of the knowledge gained has given Rob the experience to work on his passion and specialise in the T3 or third generation transporter.
