    You know Buses are popular when  they make Camaro like bodies.

    15k buys a literal ton of Gerson Metal though.

    These new bodies are Circa $33000

    Cool to see more metal being made.

    People are forgetting you still have to paint it, restore all the parts, and do interior….and if you don’t have a donor bus, finding all the pieces is going to take some time and money.

    Like they were saying on samba it would be good for re-vin’d crashed & rusty busses…but not going to be a low cost replacement for restoration.

    Maybe all the Chinese parts we get now will fit better on a Chinese body…

    I agree Franz. It won’t be a low cost build but will be good for one that is crashed and just rusted to total shit. Haha.

    The bad would be people trying to pass it off as a original bus for big $$$ and not disclosing its a re-vin.

    Done correctly people that want a nice bus won’t care if it’s a re-vin.

    More metal is always good.

    But I only want a real VW built bus. For me when you drive something old you feel the story of its life.

    How much soul can a reproduction have? Also sucks to explain its not a real VW bus all the time if your honest, like a bd bluffer or a converted 21/23.

    We will build it if it comes.
