A very old friend passed away some time back and his sister and brother in law (also old friend) are working on settling his estate. I was invited over yesterday to take a look around his boneyard to see what is going to be for sale. Well over 150 vehicles and although I didn’t count looks like 12 to 15 VWs. Three verts, several bugs and several squarebacks. Also this air cooled VW snow machine. If anyone might be interested in buying it,or any of the other stuff, let me know and I’ll put you in touch.volksaddictParticipantJune 11, 2020 at 9:39 pmPost count: 583
That’s a Kristi snowcat, Colorado built. Bubba needs that! Couple of them down south here in similar condition 🙁 Sounds like some cool stuff!mtnbusParticipantJune 12, 2020 at 5:41 amPost count: 1064

Yep! Are any of the beetles pre 64?
Didn’t check close but I don’t think so. At least one Super Beetle, one stripped shell, and one roll over. Should I give Henry the shop number Franz ?
I think they would gladly consider an offer if someone were to be interested in all of the VW related stuff as a lot. There is also a lot of odd bits and pieces of VW stuff scattered about that would be included for that. If my situation was a little different, I’d already be hauling that stuff off.Baja MarkParticipantJune 12, 2020 at 8:20 amPost count: 411
Any of the squareback look decent/complete?FranzKeymasterJune 12, 2020 at 11:39 amPost count: 3460
Check out this buggy T trailer that I saw last night. It has to be from the 60’s.
Custom axle/spindle that uses a Barndoor bus drum…which are probably more valuable than the whole trailer.RustabusParticipantJune 12, 2020 at 1:02 pmPost count: 1898

Hey Franz, I simply take the information and type up a ‘word ‘document,then print it out on a clear transparency and use an old school overhead projector .With this technique I can make sure the info fits the panel , before I start drawing.
The ‘on tap’ image is something I drew previously and made a copy of my own work..and as you can see… once I’ve got that on a transparency,I can play with the different colours.
As a signwriter,for many years I set everything out with lead pencil and applied it freehand.However,the interior LED lights used today make the graphite pencil lines show and reflect plus using the overhead is faster and more accurate.
…. all the work is hand drawn… they haven’t invented a robot to replace me yet .
