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!

Volkswagen Tiguan and Touareg take the R-Line

Mon, 14 Jan 2013 14:02:00 EST

Volkswagen's Detroit Auto Show presence is big on utility this year, with the CrossBlue three-row concept vehicle occupying the lion's share of the limelight, both literally and figuratively. But that isn't stopping Volkswagen from lavishing attention on its already established crossover and sport utility vehicles with new R-Line derivatives. The Tiguan and its big brother Touareg are getting a host of look-faster items to increase their sporting appeal.
On the outside, the Tiguan R-Line receives handsome 19-inch alloys peering out from beneath fender extensions, premium lighting (bi-Xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lamps), along with matching side skirts and a liftgate spoiler. On the inside, sportier accommodations include aluminum trim and a flat-bottom steering wheel with paddle shifters. As with other R-Line models, there are no powertrain modifications to go with the more aggressive visuals (that being the province of R standalone performance models like the R32), though the suspension has been firmed up an unspecified amount. The Tiguan R-Line will be available in front- or all-wheel drive configuration.

1000-hp Mk1 VW Golf is terrifyingly cool

Tue, 04 Jun 2013 19:58:00 EST

There are plenty of things to love about the Mk1 Volkswgen Golf. The machine's horsepower isn't one of them. From the factory, the little hatch cranked a breathy 112 horsepower from the most robust form of its 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. Boba motoring, however, has taken that figure and multiplied it by a factor of nearly 10. If 1,000 horsepower sounds terrifying in a machine with a wheelbase of just 94.5 inches, it should. A massive Garrett GTX4202R turbo force-feeds the little mill through a tweaked 16-valve KR head. The crew calls the beast the 16Vampir, and we think that's fitting.
Of course, we'd wager you quit reading right about the time you set your eyes on that headline. Those of you who've stuck around this long can point yourselves below to see the maniacal creation in action. You won't be disappointed.

New VW Beetle Convertible ad needs no disguise

Mon, 18 Feb 2013 13:01:00 EST

Convertibles make you do funny things. Ask someone if they'd drive a hardtop in near freezing temperatures with all the windows down and they might not even answer, thinking the question so ridiculous. Give that same person a convertible they love and you might just have to ask them to please put the top up even when snow is on the ground.
That guy has to take precautions to enjoy his proclivities, and as this new ad for the Volkswagen Beetle Convertible shows, not everyone understands. Have a watch below, and note that there's just one woman in the minute-long spot, and she's nowhere near the car. Seriously, why didn't VW run this commercial during the Super Bowl?
