The governor of Oklahoma tagged us as an essential business, so we are still open until further notice.  We are mostly working on some of our projects during this period.  If you need to drop by, please make an appointment, and as usual we are always available by phone or pm.

Let's play this smart and stay safe during these trying times.  And remember even if you can't drive your VW at the moment, tinker with it so you can enjoy it when life will get back to normal.


About 4years ago we found a honey hole of buses.  We were not able to make a deal at the time but last weekend we finally rescued these 5 baywindows.

It took some work but all of them were safely loaded and moved to our lot.  Some of these will be back on the road, others are just for parts and storage.  Stay tuned for more info....


We’ve been working on something a little bit different lately.

This 62 4 door hardtop Impala is turning into a sweet ride. The 283 V8 runs great and the powerglyde transmission shift as it should. We upgraded the braking system with disc brakes upfront as we’ll as a brake booster. We also removed a little altitude upfront for more attitude. It should be available soon.

 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. 


After decades of peaceful rest in an Arkansas forest, the 67 l’imbu is back on the road with some upgrades. This one might be a keeper, #NewShopTruck?
