Sell them all and buy the 58 westy that KCW just finished up for KB! Slim down the collection to usable buses! Then you’ll have a runner and then you’ll come camp with us! 😁

Lets put the reduction boxes and 1600cc into your split beetle. Make it a lifted snow rig…kdf type82e look.PeteParticipantFebruary 23, 2021 at 11:10 amPost count: 958
Lack of group consensus highlights my why it’s hard for me to decide!!!! Since any build is going to use the rims, tires, reduction tranny and motor that I already have, let’s talk about metalwork and additional parts needed. Buses in order of work needed….. 1. 58 Panel For Sure the nicest body welded up 1000 holes already and being a Panel not a lot of jewelry needed. Need bumpers, seats, deck lid and apron. 2. 64 Sportsmobile what I was planning on, needs some rust repair has some big damage to the drivers front roof but I have all the camper windows, lots of OG interior, seats bumpers, taillights etc….. 3. 57 SuperHighRoof uugh, not sure how to evaluate this except if I roll it, I’m the only guy that has one and it would be an amazing camper for non off-road camping. 4. 58 Standard, lots o body work and I gotta buy more parts. 5. 71 Standard Easiest of all!! Plug in a motor, clean up electric, then tinker with interior and whatever gremlins pop up while messin with it. NO!!! Where’s Emilee?? Everybody has an opinion!!!! Let’s hear them!!!
Why pick just one to build? Combine them all I say!RustabusParticipantFebruary 23, 2021 at 6:57 pmPost count: 2191
Okay, now there are 8 potential build ideas. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂RustabusParticipantFebruary 23, 2021 at 9:28 pmPost count: 2191
Tire Rack is Awesome!!!! Ordered yesterday around 11 AM, tires dropped off at the garage door at 6 PM today!! Tried to support local a bit as well so I ordered two tires from the local tire shop for my Baja, strangely they were 25 bucks or so more expensive!!!! I will be passive aggressive and helpfully suggest to them that they cut off whatever distribution company they use and switch over to Tire Rack to save $$$$!!! Bitches!!!!😀😀😀😀RustabusParticipantFebruary 23, 2021 at 10:28 pmPost count: 2191
I’m leaning back to original plan… 64 Sportsmobile!!! I nerded out a bit on SAMBA and pretty sure I have one of the earliest!! Most the parts, rough enough to off-road camp, Shasta… etc….. OG paint, correct camper windows, latches, lights and turn signals, bubble top for pullin up yer pants! About 1/2 the OG interior….. I parted out this Rig like 15 years ago but kept it all!!! Have roof tent mounts, ADAC crest swapped from this dash to the Single, OG front crest is on my wall and my Single has been rocking the front bumper with tent bracket and homemade side steps for years!!!mtnbusParticipantFebruary 24, 2021 at 6:22 amPost count: 1334
The sports mobile is a great bus ! And it will be a functional vehicle for you to camp, travel, etc.
I also dig the 58PanelJohn JonesKeymasterFebruary 24, 2021 at 7:18 amPost count: 7465
Sell everything stack cash, increase your garden and get serious, year or two from now…. Be Free…. 😎RustabusParticipantFebruary 24, 2021 at 8:08 amPost count: 2191
Sheet! My garden is already in full swing, started late December and I can’t even plant outside til May! And since I finally got paid from last years work, this stack can slim up a bit for some VW fun!!!!!volksaddictParticipantFebruary 24, 2021 at 11:52 amPost count: 670alykatParticipantFebruary 25, 2021 at 7:06 amPost count: 576
You have multiple VWs. That stack won’t last long.RustabusParticipantFebruary 25, 2021 at 7:50 amPost count: 2191
Right about that!!!! My tire bill already slimmed it down a bit and as much as I wanna blow it all as fast as possible I do have some annoyances commonly referred to as debt and bills that will likely compromise the size of my stack!!!!!😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀John JonesKeymasterFebruary 25, 2021 at 8:00 amPost count: 7465
