Up for bid is my 1967 VW Camper Bus. I have owned this Bus for 22 years. I purchased the bus in it's original condition in Boulder Colorado. I moved to

Minneapolis and drove the Bus to Minnesota. It underwent some restoration in those early years. About ten years ago I had it repainted by a professional
body shop. There were no rust issues to repair just minor dings and scrapes. I have never liked rusty old classic's as it's just an unending job doing rust
repair. This Bus has a quality older restoration but it IS NOT the caliber of a Barrett Jackson high end rotisserie restoration. On a scale of one to ten I
would rate it about an (8) eight. 

In 1999 I was on my way to a VW meet in St Cloud, Minnesota. At 55 MPH the original engine spun a bearing. Unfortunately, I had to have the Bus towed
home. I put in a rebuilt engine and a better carb. Since 1999 I have driven the Bus less than 500 miles. That would also be the miles on the tires and wheels
I had put on the bus. The Bus runs and drives great. It could be driven anywhere as far as I know.

I am selling because I am old now and just don't use the Bus at all. (500 miles in the last 14 years) The time has come for me to scale down on my toys.
Finally, I don't consider this bus to be show quality, just fun quality. That said I have won best of show, or peoples choice, in the smaller local car shows.
I just purchased a 'Retro Sound" radio for the Bus as my old cassette radio was funky. I did not receive the specific face plate I need for the stock opening
on the dash, so the radio is not yet installed. A face plate is on the way from 'Retro' so I hope to have it installed in a few days. There is a photo of the radio
in my photo gallery.

Thanks for viewing my Bus and good luck bidding.

VW readying CC Shooting Brake?

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 10:58:00 EST

This was bound to happen. Volkswagen's relentless drive for big volume has the brand mining seemingly every niche it can find for additional sales worldwide. And with its CLS Shooting Brake, fellow countryman Mercedes-Benz has already shown that a wagon based off of a "four-door coupe" can look dead sexy and command extra dollars. So it follows that the Volkswagen CC (whose existence is all but directly attributable to the success of the original CLS sedan) will also get a load-lugging variant. That's according to the UK's Autocar, which notes that the five-door will come in the CC's next generation.
According to the report, the next CC will be available in front and all-wheel drive variants with the usual assortment of gas and diesel four-cylinders found in the Wolfsburg empire, with the possibility of a gas plug-in hybrid model, too. The rakish estate will ride atop VW's MQB architecture, a shorter variant of which is also found underneath the new Golf. The scalable chassis is set to spread like kudzu throughout the company's lineup, but the CC probably won't happen until after the launch of the next European-market Passat in 2015.
Will we get it in North America? Hard to say. Volkswagen sells the standard CC saloon here, but not in particularly large numbers, and when the company moved to a North American-specific Passat, it dumped the wagon variant. The traditional VW estate apparently continues to pick up sales momentum abroad, however, making the CC Shooting Brake a seemingly natural fit for buyers who still want the utility of a two-box form but can afford to sacrifice a bit of cargo room in the name of style.

VW Super Bowl teaser with Jimmy Cliff is like a less-mean Tosh.0 Web Redemption

Thu, 24 Jan 2013 16:31:00 EST

Reggae super-duper-star and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Jimmy Cliff has been using music to send positive vibes out into the universe for decades now, so its no surprise that his message on behalf of Volkswagen is one of redemption.
Dubbed Sunny Side, this web-spot is VW's warmup of sorts for what promises to be another blockbuster year in the world of Super Bowl commercials. Without giving away the game, the euphonious commercial sees Cliff opening his arms and his heart to some YouTube 'celebrities' that might see courser treatment from the likes of Tosh.0, for instance. We can't help but be reminded of Coca-Cola's legendary 1971 Hilltop spot with the "I'd like to buy the world a Coke" lyric, too.
Enjoy the pre-Super Bowl VW spot below, and don't forget to pay it forward... your karma will thank you. For those of you that just can't get enough of commercial-making magic, we've included a "making-of" video, as well.

VW Golf GTI wrung out by Chris Harris

Thu, 27 Jun 2013 20:00:00 EST

Enthusiasts like nothing more than to crucify modern interpretations of their favorite performance models for failing to live up to some imagined ethos. Even the Volkswagen GTI has suffered its fair share of slings and arrows for growing in size and curb weight. Chris Harris recently spent some time with the all-new MK VII GTI to find out if growing up means giving up on what makes the machine so special.
Judging by his comments, Harris certainly doesn't think so. Yes, the new GTI is considerably more comfortable than its predecessors, but that's hardly a bad thing. The multitude of driving modes actually seem to add depth to the car rather than simply try to force one tool to do many jobs, and Harris even finds the machine's electronic power steering tolerable. As a result, Harris goes so far as to call the Volkswagen GTI "one of the best cars to actually own." How's that for high praise? You can watch the video for yourself by scrolling below.
