WTF?!?!??!!? That’s it, I’m dragging over the SuperHighroof!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀😀😀VwfoolParticipantSeptember 30, 2020 at 11:43 pmPost count: 338
Here is the story
I bought this fine piece of German yard art from a guy named Lucas Wiley in Kent, Washington shortly after we moved to Oregon. He had it stored behind Franklin’s VW shop. That was 6 years ago. As many of you know I like freak hack crap VWs so this checked all my boxes plus I can stand up in it.
Allegedly, this was built a long time ago most likely the ‘70’s. Disco and drugs made people do some dumb shit. The last time it was registered according to the plates was 1983 in Washington. The guy lived in it died at some point. Going by the looks of it when I got it, probably in it. It had a homemade shower stall in it, fold out bed, some cabinets, old clothing, boots and a crap ton of survival books and how to live off the grid pamphlets. He also must have had a hook up on spray foam because thing had it everywhere up to 6” thick in spots.
I will try to find the clean out pictures I took of it.
Anyhow, my goal is to have the metal done, painted so it doesn’t rust (no show car shit, probably thick ass tractor paint) and suspension wise I want to mimic Franz’s mega hatch bus.
John as much as you refused to ever want to see this on the property a couple years ago I am glad you have softened up and are willing to help me build the ultimate camper bus.VwfoolParticipantSeptember 30, 2020 at 11:46 pmPost count: 338

Did Scott just drop this off and head back to the coast, or is he going to stick around for a while and help work on it ?Pat KKeymasterOctober 1, 2020 at 7:47 amPost count: 1648volksaddictParticipantOctober 1, 2020 at 7:48 amPost count: 660

No Way!!!! I had the top half of a 65 Standard with no bulkhead or floor, and an attempt at an IRS conversion, rusted up from the bottom up 18”. Bought a Tom Tom 57 kombi poorly hacked into a Single Cab attempt. Brought these two Bus parts together to make One magnificent Bus Beauty!!!!!

Havent heard from Corey in sooooooooo long… and he posts on the big gay bitch…. 😎 😎 😎
well I guess you need to post up more gay content.
I come over every now and then, think I just bought the last few KF panels I needed for the Binz.
i got a new job, still gov, just less OT and more on my level. Composite Fabricator.
I think I should have done my own thin about 10-15 years ago, now ain’t the time and neither will tomorrow.
i have personal projects I’d like done before I’m 50.
hope you’re doing good with all your back surgery JJ. I was just laid out for 5 days with a fucking kidney stone. Wanted the laser but they said it will pass.
currently building a Taiwan K5 blazer for my buddy. Got a few in waiting but I think when those are done, I’m done. Time to do me.
