 Volkswagen Westfalia is the classic camperbus!  I purchased the bus from a mechanic in Wisconsin in 2007.  The motor/ transmission are in great shape.  Bus starts just fine.  Blue/ white exterior, recently painted with rust spots buffed out and patched.  Interior was redone with new shag carpet and paneling.  The tires are good, the brakes are newer and work well, alternator and spark plugs recently replaced.  This is a fun vehicle my  family and I would take for trips and drives around town.  I am selling because I am moving across the country and cannot take it with us.  If you want a bus that you can drive right now, this is it.  Only a few minor fixes needed as listed in the next paragraph: 

There is some rust where the footstep is on the driver and passenger side doors, but it is minor.  The paint job is good, but not professional.  The camper top tarp is intact and useable with two small holes in the canvas.  A few small spots on the paneling (on kitchenette) have worn off and the veneer on the table top is starting to curl up.  All of these are easily fixed, I just dont have time.  Third gear can be fussy at times shifting into it.  The white top gets dirty and needs to be scrubbed.

VW previews retouched 2014 Touareg for Beijing

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 18:00:00 EST

Volkswagen is in New York this week showing off its new Jetta and Golf TDI SportWagen concept. But in less than a week, the German automaker will be off to China for the Beijing Motor Show, where it will showcase the revised Touareg you see here.
A subtle update on the Touareg that's been on the market in its current form for four years now, the facelifted model features reworked styling front and rear, an updated interior and a host of new technologies to keep it current in the highly competitive SUV market. Among those new features are larger bi-xenon headlights, coasting function, Google Maps integration and a post-collision braking system designed to prevent a second crash.
VW will offer the new Touareg with a variety of engines around the world, but in North America it'll carry over the same six-cylinder powertrain options as the outgoing model: a 3.6-liter V6 with 280 horsepower, a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 with 240 hp (though torque isn't listed, we'd expect around 406 pound-feet, same as last year) and a hybrid that marries a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 to an electric motor that combine to deliver 380 hp.

Chrysler slows minivan production, hasn't built VW Routan this year

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 08:25:00 EST

Chrysler has slowed production of its Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans this week, Automotive News reports. The Windsor, Ontario plant will cut its three shifts from eight hours each to four hours each in an effort "to align production with market demand," a Chrysler spokesperson told AN. Chrysler also builds the closely related Routan minivan for Volkswagen at its Ontario facility, but has not built a single example thus far in 2013.
Sales of Chrysler's minivans fell 15 percent for the first two months of 2013, and a large part of that has to do with the 26-percent drop of the Grand Caravan alone (the T&C was only down by one percent). According to Automotive News data, as of March 1, Chrysler had an unsold inventory of 24,713 Town and Country models and 18,547 Grand Caravans - a 69- and 43-day supply, respectively.
"No sense running full speed now, then have a lot of vehicles sitting around a few months down the line," Chrysler spokeswoman Jodi Tinson told AN. Full production is expected to resume again on March 18.

VW's Winterkorn tells 20,000 staffers of big cost-cutting plans

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 15:42:00 EST

During a gathering of 20,000 Volkswagen Group employees at company headquarters in Wolfsburg, Germany on Wednesday, CEO Martin Winterkorn dropped a bombshell. The boss stated that the automaker isn't operating efficiently enough and admitted the company needs to radically start cutting back to raise its profit margins. To right the ship, Winterkorn has proposed killing off less profitable models and spending less on research and development.
According to Reuters, Winterkorn wants to raise the VW brand's profit margin from about 2.9 percent in 2013 to a target of 6 percent. To make that possible, his plan amounts to increasing cost cutting until Volkswagen reaches about 5 billion euros ($6.7 billion) per year to get things back in order. "Over the short-term, we urgently need more efficiency and higher profit," the CEO said during his speech, according to Reuters.
However, Winterkorn can't make these decisions unilaterally. Volkswagen's works council also has a seat on the supervisory board to represent laborers, and it isn't likely to take the proposed cuts sitting down.
