Some very minor scratches, dings, and cracks. I have more pictures of the under carriage. Smoke free as it is a business. Runs and drives great. Odometer reads 49042, but I don't know if the OD has rolled. I replaced the original 1.7L engine in 2011 with an 1.8L. New brakes. Good radio. Good electrical.

Restoration and espresso stand conversion in 2010. Fully operational. Good for events or daily route. The business is set up to run on a 120v 25amp breaker. Just plug it into a standard wall receptacle.

This Bus is a major eye catcher. Anywhere we went people wanted a drink. We used it for events only, but it could easily do a daily route. We served hot drinks in the morning and cold drinks in the afternoon.

We've taken this to car shows, art festivals, sand castle events, music festivals, pumpkin patches, and tree festivals. We took our son along too. He'll ask quite often when were taking the coffee bus somewhere. We would make him a "special coffee", which was steamed milk and vanilla syrup. He loves them. We are selling it because our financial circumstances have changed. We started it when my wife and I were out of work. It made us quite a bit of money. However, now she's working full time as a college instructor and I'm working full time as a store manager. We hope someone can have as much fun as we did.

Volkswagen's 261-mpg hand-built XL1 headed for Geneva

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 11:30:00 EST

After years of rumors, development and testing, the Volkswagen XL1 is finally about to become a reality. The project that began life as a daring 1-Liter concept car in 2002, will finally get its production-ready curtain call at the Geneva Motor Show in just a few weeks.
As soon as it hits the streets, the two-seat XL1 will instantly become the most fuel-efficient and most aerodynamic production car in the world. The car uses a plug-in hybrid system to achieve mind-blowing consumption of just 0.9 liters of diesel fuel consumed every 100 kilometers (and average of roughly 261 miles per gallon). Plus, the XL1 can go up to 50 kilometers on its battery power alone. Coefficient of drag is a miniscule 0.189, thanks to a tiny frontal area and an obviously slippery shape.
XL1 power comes from a two-cylinder diesel motor connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, while the 20 kW electric motor is fed by a lithium-ion battery. Both combine to give the XL1 performance figures that are, while not stirring, not shabby considering its extreme frugality: 0-62 miles per hour comes up in 12.7 seconds and top speed is nearly 146 mph.

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.

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."
