We attended the VW Harvest in Austin, TX last month. It’s always a great show and this year they had a great turnout, over 350 vws. This was the first time we took our new shop truck on a long road trip. The 67 bus drove the 600 miles without complaining. We even managed to dodge a tornado on our way back through Dallas Sunday night but still got drenched and blown all over the road by the high wind.
We are in the process of making the 67 split bus our new shop truck. After it’s ready our current one, the 68 Double Cab will be available for sale. it might take a couple months but the wheels are in motions. Start saving your juke box money now. Stay tuned for further upgrades.
The 73 VW Thing is now for sale. It runs and drives great.
The body is in good shape, very little rust, floor pans are solid paint is mostly original . New windshield, new soft top , new front seats foam cushion. It has a stock 1600 engine that runs great. The brakes system was redone with new master cylinder, wheel cylinders, shoes, rubber lines, main steel lines, front drums and wheel bearings ...). Brand new tires. Original gas heater included , but never tested.
This 1967 convertible is our latest rescue. Last time it was registered and inspected was 1976 in Louisiana. It was parked under a carport in East Texas for the last 18 years. We’re adding this gem to our “one more chance coming” stable.
