Gypsie was purchased in Sarasota, Florida in 1987 through a classified advertisement. We were visiting Florida between selling our home on St. Croix and before leaving on a year’s tour of Europe and North Africa in a VW camper. We bought the vehicle as a future restoration project with the intention of traveling around the states in the “camp car”. Restoration of Gypsie was a sporadic 19 year project, as our wanderlust kept finding us pursuing new adventures abroad and in the states, thus delaying our efforts. Finally, we finished her a few years back, and if Gypsie could talk, she’d make one captivating storyteller.
