Hi, I am Lucas, 32 years young and have been busy with Old Bulli Berlin since 01/02/2014. After high school and a completed trade in Carsales at the Autohaus Möbus in Berlin, I spent 1 ½ years selling cars in the used cars section at Volkswagen. But what then I thought, at 24? Knowing I wanted to take a longer holiday I decided on exploring the world with a close friend Phillip. Once said, then done – with no regrets we left on the 18/12/2012 for 8 months around the world.
Sure, it was wishful thinking to develop an impulse idea I had had on my travels and start my very own Combi project. Even though my love for old VW busses was not new, I did not expect to discover so many T1 and T2 models along the way, they just kept surprising me – it’s something that you just don’t see that often in Germany. It must be possible, I then thought, to get these busses back to Germany and bewilder the people back at home with them.
Even this idea grabbed hold of me quickly and soon thereafter I had found a “Rig” with my friend Sophie in California. A quick city tour of Los Angeles to the ‘stars’ completed the business idea and the model for the future was laid out – city tours and a variety of other services in a world-famous car through our capital city of Berlin!
