It was a SUPER quick sale!!! So quick in fact it caught me off guard at first. I posted it up around 11pm or so(took a good 30 minutes with my finger hovering over the submit button before I could press it). By 7am the next morning I had at least 10 responses half were questions, and half were "I want your bus". Christian was the only one actual voicemail though so he got first call. On that first call he said he wanted it and was ready to give deposit. First I had to make a couple phone calls and figure out the best way to do that, then I had to wrap my head around the fact that I was actually selling it. Which took pretty much all day.

I have no doubt Christian will be a great owner for this bus. This was not a "top dollar" sale. Throughout that first day and even yesterday several people have been trying to bid up Christian's offer. Christian first off made it logistically simple right off the bat. More importantly he unintentionally put me at ease about the whole thing. We have chatted quite a bit the last day or so and I'm certain the bus is going to a RAD family! Not to mention it will actually be living right on the Oregon Coast just a couple hours south of me a couple months out of the year as Christian is an avid kite surfer!! \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ Maybe I'll even get a kite surfing lesson or two out of this deal :-k :-k Smile

I went from sick to my stomach on this to actually excited for Christian to get the bus. He has already gone through and read this entire thread start to finish, the same way I did, and he is excited to continue posting about the bus here. I could not be happier about the way this is going. Actually feels really good to be part of making someone so stoked about something. There is no doubt why John does what he does.

P.S. Sorry to make you guys read so much without pictures.lol

new kid on the block

Postby kitesurfusa » Mon Sep 01, 2014 7:48 am

well i hope you all are having a killer labor day weekend, wanted to intro myself.
my name is christian canese, i live in arizona and on the oregon coast.
i have love vw's since the early 70 when me and my best friends would get out on the dirt with our vw bugs and basically race each other around in huge dirt fields, some of the best romping i have ever done.
in 1997 i purchased my 1st vw bus a 1966 camper it was painted flat seafoam green, loved it to the bone, went to concerts in it, drove it to the california coast several times and camped on the beach, basically was my daily driver, had tons of fun, sold it in 2004 and it was the worst sale remorse i have ever had.
now this is why i had to get another one, been on samba and craigs list like a addict, everyday, my wife kind of thought is was nuts until i came across cole's 1964 turk.
what a killer bus, i love everything about it and all the sweat and efforts that went into this 64. KCW, YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!
i will meet cole up in portland in 1 week from today to take it over, i am so excited to put my touches on to this 64 bus and love it as much as john and cole have. by the way john could you please send me the paint codes on the 2 colors on this bus and who did you get that camper interior from?
cole started a different a different vision for the interior by putting vinyl on some of the interior panels and i want to put it back to how it was , all wood.
spoke to cole and he expressed that the panels that he covered might have lamination on them from the vinyl and it might be better and easier just to get the 2 or 3 new sheets of wood and cut them down, please advise.
again thank you for any input and i cant wait to post up my future trips with my wife and dogs and any updates i do to this 64.
by the way, cole sure is one of the nicest guys i have ever met without even meeting him in person, he has a beautiful family and truly loved this 64 bus and i plan on continuing just the same.
have great weekend to all you vdub enthusiast.
keep the faith!
