This is Gretchen. We've been together since about 2004. After 6 or 7 great years road tripping all over the north east I decided it was time to give Gretchen a new life. She was sand blasted and stripped down to bare metal. All rust was cut out and replaced with new sheet metal. All wiring, lighting, engine, tranny, gas tank and fixtures were removed. She was sprayed with several layers of primer inside and out then she was sprayed with 4 coats of paint inside and out. The entire underside and wheel wells as well as a few other high rust areas were covered in heavy duty rust inhibitor. The engine, tranny and etc were then reinstalled. I installed all new rubber seals on all the windows and doors. At this point I lost my garage and had to put the project on hold. I don't foresee getting a new garage any time soon so rather than see this beauty sit in my back yard unused I've decided to put her up for sale.

Please note, this bus is currently NOT Running. She still needs the wiring harness reconnected, all lights need to be reconnected, the engine is installed but not connected to the wiring/gas lines etc. She will also need a few minor connections and finishing touches to be road ready. There is no canvas inside the pop top. The bus has not been run since 2012 but it ran perfectly when I put her in the garage. The restoration was for body rust not mechanical issues.

Please look at all the pictures. Contact me with any questions. This is the full westy bus propane stove, pull out bed, bunk bed, fridge etc.

Volkswagen New Midsize Coupe Concept is an aspirational Jetta

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 13:00:00 EST

Meet the Volkswagen baby CC. Okay, that's not really it's name (VW calls it the New Midsize Coupe Concept), but this sleek, four-door coupe draws more than a little inspiration from the CC while riding on VW's MQB platform.
It's a looker, we think, and is an eye-pleasing departure from the bland styling of the current Jetta. The sleeker front end is complemented by a wider body overall (it's wider than a Passat), while the more sporting roofline and the sharp rear fascia gives the New Midsize Coupe a decidedly sporting character. LED head- and taillights add a bit more personality to this already stylish design.
Thanks to its 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder, it should get along rather sportingly, as well. The run to 62 miles per hour takes just 6.5 seconds thanks to the 217 horsepower on offer. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is also fitted, and contributes to an estimated 37 miles per gallon.

2015 Volkswagen GTI [w/video]

The 911 Of Hot Hatches Takes The Compact Game To New Levels
North American car buyers get a bit of a slap in the face when it comes to delivery schedules for new the Volkswagen Golf and pumped-up GTI models. We'll just repeat the old chestnut: It's worth the wait... even though it still stinks. This time around, Western Europe is taking deliveries of the new Golf as we speak, and GTI deliveries start between May and July. North America doesn't get the Mk7 Golf or GTI until about July of 2014.
So we approached our first drive of the new GTI with this chip on our shoulder: "You're making us wait? Well, then at least give us the exact car we'll be able to buy. No compromises, mein freund." And so it was that we extracted nearly all of our drive impressions from behind the wheel of what, for the United States, will technically be a model year 2015 two-door Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance with the standard six-speed manual.

Volkswagen Golf Wagon leaked ahead of official unveiling

Sat, 02 Mar 2013 20:10:00 EST

Wagons ho! These three images of the upcoming Volkswagen Golf Wagon have leaked online ahead of the car's official debut, which may very well be at the Geneva Motor Show. Looking over the photos doesn't really bring any surprises - after all, this is a VW Golf with a wagon rear end grafted on, or basically what we expect next Jetta SportWagen will be.
We can only share these three images at this time, but fret not, folks. There's little doubt that all the details and images will be flowing from Volkswagen in short order. In the meantime, click on the images above to view them in high resolution.
