For sale is my 1970 VW Bus with a Dormobile Camper Conversion. Runs and idles great. Having problems with a clutch plate or linkage.
It has about 86,500 miles, however there are only about 2000 miles on the new engine and transmission. The brakes are new, the curtains are original. The front is a three seat bench with storage underneath, as well as a footrest/shelf under the dash for comfort and storage.
The back has the standard z-bed pull out in yellow vinyl. There are two tall closets, as well as a side cabinet, a cabinet under the bed, as well as a storage bench with attached swivel table. There is also a kitchenette with a mini fridge, sink and two burner stove, but it is from another year. I have personally not used it (I removed it for more living space) but it still is included.
The Dormobile conversion includes two pull out cots, which I do not have the canvas for. One has been removed for more headroom, and will need to be reattached. There is also an additional cot that can be attached over the front seats.
Included with the bus is a yellow framed Westfalia Side Tent in incredible condition. Also included are new seals for the doors and windows.
There is one major ding in the front, in which the paint cracked and has begun to rust.
This bus has been lovingly driven and kept. I am selling it because I am moving and I will not be able to keep it where I am going. I have invested alot of time, money and love into this bus, and have kept exceptional care of it.

The struggle over unionization at the Volkswagen factory in Chattanooga, TN, continues to get more complicated. There's now a second union fighting to organize at the plant; although this one is staunchly against the actions of the United Auto Workers. At the same time, the UAW is still signing up voluntary members to its recently created Local 42 at the facility and is reportedly near having a majority of the hourly employees on its side.

The new, anti-UAW union campaign is being spearheaded by employee Mike Burton, according to Reuters, and he calls his group the American Council of Employees. He claims to already have 108 signatures in support of his organization. Burton believes that the UAW is harmful to businesses, and his goal is to force another vote to determine a preferred union among workers.
The UAW was initially defeated (712 to 626) when it attempted a union vote at the Tennessee plant in February. However, UAW secretary-treasurer Gary Casteel told Reuters that Local 42 has already signed up over 700 members. If it can reach a majority of the roughly 1,500 employees, the group hopes VW might consider recognizing it as the factory's union.
Way back in 2004, Volkswagen took umbrage with Suzuki being granted permission to use the nameplate "SWIFT GTi" for a performance variant of its small-car offering (2012 equivalent seen here). Now, eight years and surely some very steep legal bills later, VW has finally dropped its claim against Suzuki.

The General Court of the European Union stated, back in March of this year, that Suzuki's GTi registration could not be confused with VW's "Golf GTI." Volkswagen had appealed that ruling, though has now reportedly called off the dogs. In fact, Germany's Die Welt reports that the appeal has been dead for several weeks now.
This news comes amongst continued arbitration acrimony between the two automakers, all revolving around VW's forced divestiture of nearly 20-percent stake it purchased in Suzuki some two years ago.
It hasn't been without incident or union organizing drive, but the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, TN has built its 250,000 Passat in just a little over two years. The Night Blue Passat TDI with black leather has come just two years and five weeks after the first customer car came off the line on April 18, 2011.
In the last year the plant operated at the 150,000-unit capacity that it was intended for, but the downturn in Passat sales and subsequent worker layoffs mean it will be a challenge to repeat the feat. The plant does have the world's largest solar park, though, and you can't take that away from them.
