This really isn't a VW bus site, but I am a sucker for them, and have been looking for a nice one for awhile. A co-worker told me about one she had seen for sale while visiting their property way out in the boonies. I jumped in my car, and took her hand-drawn map, expecting to find a rusted out clunker sitting with weeds growing up through the floorpans. After a 35 minute drive way out in the boonies down a dirt road, I found the bus- a '73 with a home done paint job, but done reasonably well in the original blue and white colors. All glass intact, almost no rust, no major damage of any kind, floorpans solid, interior missing carpet and padding, but clean, and the best part, it runs sweet and fresh, great trannie and suspension and steering as tight as the day it was made. All the window rubber is hard and dry, possibly indicating a Southwest car. I fell in love with it at first sight. The guy wants 3500.00 rock-bottom price, and it comes with a full set of extra glass, extra sliding door, extra tailgate, and other stuff. My wife says "NO WAY!" to another vehicle right now, so I am licking my wounds, but of course she is right...man, they just don't show up in Ohio like this one, though. (this one's been sitting in a barn for years) I just can't bear parting with my '64 sedan right after finishing it, which is the only way she'll let me get the bus.
