The Time Traveler
This bus was a real discovery when I found it.This 1973 Riviera camper bus  originally built in Germany was shipped to the united states,then immediately after it's arrival  was shipped to Beaverton,Oregon where it was converted to what is known well as a Riviera camper.

Not only is this bus a true discovery but I would also consider it on the rare side as far as Riviera or any of the coach built campers is concerned.
What makes this so unique are the facts that the design of this bus make's for much comfort,The rear seating area has a full bench seat that folds out as a bed, I know they all have beds but this one is different,instead of having a closet storage area that runs the length of the of the rear bed,that was eliminated and placed behind the driver's area, freeing up a foot or two of sleeping space which can make all the difference in a good nights sleep.
This bus also sports a VERY large bed upstair which will hold 2 adults easily.This is the penthouse,great for all kinds of fun,fantasy and nature viewing.
The condition of the pads for the top bunk are like new, almost as though never used. The condition of the bottom bench seat is very good with no rips,tears,or stains.Another testimony to the overall condition of the vehicle is the fact that the front seat's have no rips or tears,only seam wear.Indicating that great attention and care was given to the overall use of the vehicle.

The Bus Has a brand new paint job which is Palm Green Sand Green an origanal Vw Color from earlier models
Paint is a base coat clear coat.Many hours have gone into making the body straight and shiny although not a show quality finish it only shows minor imperfections.
The bus has many new parts,including a windshield,a new windshield seal,brand new pop top seals all the way around,a new fuel pump and more.
I do have original documentation of maintenance,along with that I found receipts for an engine install and a transmission install.
Bus starts easily and runs great,I have yet to find a drop of oil under it.Brakes and E-brake work,although I would insist on having them gone through.
Wipers, Lights and most of the blinkers are in working order.Both doors open and close wonderfully.
Bus has a working tachometer.
& HEATER WORKS.
Bus is equipped with a working stove,untested refrigerator,a sink with a hand pump,and Electrical outlets for camping
This bus is loaded.
Please note this is an authentic antique vehicle that shows its age in normal areas.

Auto execs surveyed say VW, BMW most likely to grow

Thu, 17 Jan 2013 08:30:00 EST

A new survey of top global automotive executives indicates both Volkswagen and BMW are the most likely to grow their market share over the next five years.
Tax advisory firm KPMG LLP has released its 14th annual Global Automotive Executive Survey, which includes responses from over 200 executives. A total of 81 percent of respondents said they expect to see Volkswagen make gains, compared to 70 percent last year. BMW, meanwhile, saw 70 percent of those surveyed say they believe the company will increase its market share. That's a jump of 7 percentage points over last year. This is the first time in the history of the survey that BMW has claimed the second-place spot.
Meanwhile, Hyundai has seen its perceived market share potential slacken for the third year in a row. Around 61 percent of those surveyed predicted gains for Hyundai, down from 63 in 2012. Toyota also has a surprising year, but for just the opposite reason. While the manufacturer had slipped in ranking since 2011, it enjoyed the largest increase of any company in the 2013 survey, jumping to 68 percent from 44 percent last year.

Volkswagen lays off 500 Chattanooga workers

Fri, 19 Apr 2013 17:46:00 EST

The redesigned Volkswagen Passat has been a decent seller since its debut in 2011, but sales have apparently dropped off enough that the automaker is trimming some of the employees from its Chattanooga, TN assembly plant. According to Automotive News, Volkswagen will be cutting shifts and laying off 500 contracted workers in response to slowing sales.
Currently, the plant has three teams running 10-hour shifts Monday through Saturday, but starting May 13, this will be reduced down to two teams running 10-hour shifts Monday through Thursday. This will be done to reduce dealer inventory (the article says that VW dealers, on average, have a 97-day supply of Passats) and production capacity (currently running at an annual pace of 170,000 units, which is more than the 150,000 annual units the plant was planned to produce).
This, of course, isn't saying that the Passat has been a failure since VW added 200 full-time employees to the plant in February 2012 to keep up with increased demand. The AN article says that automakers frequently overstaff plants during the launch of a new product - or in this case, a new product and a new plant - but eventually reduce the workers as things run smoother and more efficiently.

BMW, Ferrari, VW cars use tungsten mined by terrorists

Thu, 08 Aug 2013 13:31:00 EST

Bloomberg Markets is reporting that BMW, Volkswagen and Ferrari have been using tungsten ore sourced from Columbia's FARC rebel terrorists. The extensive story focuses on Columbia's illegal mining trade and calls into question the provenance of the rare ore that is used not only in crankshaft parts production, but is also found in the world's computing and telecommunications industry for use in screens.
The ore is mined by the FARC (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, or Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia - People's Army), and exported to Pennsylvania, where it is refined. The refined ore is then sent over to Austria, where a company called Plansee turns it into a finished product. Now, it's important to note that we aren't talking about the world's supply of tungsten here. In 2012, Plansee's American refinery purchased 93.2 metric tons of tungsten, valued at $1.8 million. That's peanuts, with the entire Colombian tungsten mining industry producing just one percent of the world's supplies.
That doesn't make indirectly supporting FARC any more acceptable, though. BMW, VW and Ferrari are all committed to not accepting mineral supplies from the Democratic Republic of Congo, which is also in the grips of a guerrilla insurrection funded, in part, by illegal mining. The same commitment would figure to extend to Colombian mining, but as BMW points out, it's difficult for a multi-national manufacturer to know where every item in its supply chain comes from. A company spokesperson says as much, telling Bloomberg, "These few grams out of the billions of tons of raw materials passing through the BMW supply chain are of no practical relevance."
