Anyone have a vw bus?

After going with my friend to a vw show today to show his 72 baywindow (now lowered) I got a strong urge to buy a POS bus and just completly dump it and restore it as a project car. I was wondering if anyone on here has any experience with busses and lowering them?? Its probably a long shot but oh well.

I would want to build somthing like this. The in the grass, 2-3" of ground clearence, weathered look.

oh ya. I want one BAAAD now. After looking through 20 pages of this http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/vie...er=asc&start=0


I just have to start saving enough up to buy it and lower it and fix any major imperfections. And since it wouldnt be my DD, i dont give two shits how low and impractical it is

I don't. But I too think they are a very cool project. Sub'd in hopes that some TW members have a bus hiding in their garage

A guy who owns the warehouse across the way from ours at work, restores these things and has at least 10 of these things in various stages of resto in there.

That was a 21-window that sold for $198k!

What the bus? Or the bus with the porshe engine? Because the bus is still as aerodynamic as a brick and weighs as much as a small church lol, I doubt it would go very fast, even with a good engine hahaha.

Not true. Search Craigslist in Oregon. You can find decent ones with minimal rust for $2K or less. I don't call that top dollar for a running classic vehicle.
