Hi everyone, 


I sell to you here my lovely project. I have been working on the car for over 12 months now but want to sell it now. I look for someone who is willing to finish it. The hole Bus is finished to 85 %. My price is only the costs for the materials, paint and parts. The work and time is not included, because thats the fun in the whole project. 


Here is what I have done so far (Milestones): 


- Pre-cleaned the whole bus 

- Got the entire interials out 

- I put in a running engine 

- Sand stripped the whole chasis and many parts 

- Repaired the broken or rusted body areas and filled them up 

- Painted the bus (PlastiDip) and almost all the parts 

- Cleaned and rebuilt chrome parts, lights, radio, speedometer and other things like a wallnut gear nob 

- Bought a CD-Player System and a Bass Box and other speakers and cables 

- engine, starter and transmission are professionally rebuild (Engine runs but I guess needs to be a little adjusted / I can send you a video of the running Engine) 

- New white wall Hankook tires, wheels newly painted and original chrome hubcaps rebuilt (quite nice) 

- Roof is cleaned, sanded, painted and reinstalled (works good, tent is missing) 

- Fuel tank, firewall, fuel intake and engine area are rebuild 

- Electric System checked by a professional (nearly everything can be used again) 

- Nearly all Body Rubber and Seals are new




Here is what you need to do to finish it: 


- Install speedometer, radio, some electric

- Install several bulbs, replace some small parts

- Check and maybe replace brake pads or system (Brakes are still working) 

- Check and maybe replace shock absorbers (They are still working) 

- Get interior panels 

- Repair hot air tube under the bus if needed 

- Install Power-inlet on side of the Camper 


What is part of the deal: 


Because it will be too many pictures to show everything I give you a summary of the main part groups you are getting: 


- The BUS with new wheels, tires and so on (Ready to drive) 

- New Battery 

- Sound System (Bass Box, Super 8 Radio, original VW Radio, CD Radio) 

- Clean title 


How can You get the Bus: 


I recommend you come with a PICKUP TRUCK or a big VAN or SUV. Bring a Trailer that is able to hold the camper. The total weight of all the stuff is around 3400 lb. 


The bus is in a fair condition so far, but I am just a normal guy and not a volkswagen specialist. So I strongly recommend for you to look before you buy. Bus ist 43 years old and not new!

Europeans get first crack at new Golf Variant wagon

Mon, 04 Mar 2013 15:00:00 EST

Just last week, when we brought you news of a new Volkswagen Golf variant out and testing in Europe, we had no idea we were being so literal with out description. For it seems that VW has every intention of calling its new Golf wagon, making its Geneva debut, the "Golf Variant."
Odd/interesting sobriquets taken as read then, there's a lot to like about this new small wagon from VW. The Variant will shed some 232 pounds in this generation, and will come to market with two efficient TDI engines. Volkswagen isn't giving us displacement figures for either yet, but we're told the diesels will come with outputs of 110 and 150 horsepower. The 110-hp TDI BlueMotion Varient will be good for a whopping 71.3 miles per gallon on the European cycle, when mated to the six-speed manual transmission.
The German automaker has brought along an all-wheel-drive 4Motion version of the Gold Variant to bow in Geneva, as well, and a natural gas-burning TGI BlueMotion is said to be "in the pipeline."

Porsche again staring down another $1.8B in hedge fund lawsuits

Wed, 15 May 2013 11:30:00 EST

The sequence of events from 2007 that began with Porsche's secret attempt to take over Volkswagen, and instead lead to Porsche being taken over by VW, continues to instigate lawsuits against the Stuttgart sports car manufacturer. A group of hedge funds that suffered over $1 billion in losses sued the car company in New York. Porsche had publicly stated it wasn't trying to buy VW, the hedge funds in question were shorting VW stock, and when Porsche's actual intentions were revealed, the stock shot up and the hedge funds took a beating.
The case was thrown out over the issue of jurisdiction, then appealed, only to see another suit filed on top of that. After that, most of the hedge funds withdrew their claims in New York and Porsche offered a 90-day window to refile in Germany where it is already fighting a number of other suits over the same issue. The hedge funds accepted the offer, refiling in Stuttgart for $1.8 billion in damages. According to Bloomberg, Porsche hasn't commented on the refiling, but as the same plaintiffs are involved, it's safe to assume that the carmaker still feels the case is "unsubstantiated and without merit." It has fared alright so far even in German courts, with two lesser cases against it thrown out last year.

VW launches special edition Touareg X

Tue, 03 Dec 2013 10:59:00 EST

Volkswagen is no stranger to special editions, but its Touareg SUV has remained largely unspecial in terms of exclusive trims or unique packages. That's changed with the announcement of the Touareg X, a 1,000-unit run based on the V6 TDI Lux trim - mid-range diesel model, between the navigation-equipped TDI Sport and the TDI R-Line.
The already special Touareg gets 19-inch "Moab" wheels, LED taillights (to go along with its LED DRLs) and "Touareg X" badging, while all 1,000 units will be painted Moonlight Blue Pearl. Tweaks in the cabin are equally light, with a black-on-black-on-black color scheme dominating - black Vienna leather, a black headliner and piano black trim. Aluminum bits make an appearance in the form of the door sills and pedals, although that's about it.
Other than those few aesthetic tweaks, the Touareg X is equipped largely like the Touareg Lux on which it's based. That means navigation, a panoramic sunroof, power seats, LED running lights, dual-zone air conditioning and heated power seats, among other tech pieces. Pricing starts at $56,170, making for a slight bump of $1,195 over the standard Touareg Lux.
