    yo dude...
    i got a 69 westy so mines a bit different looking. that green one looks to clean!!!! to low... what the fuck are you gonna do in a westy if you cant camp in it?? if its that low you cant go off roading in it... mines like... 13 in off the ground?? some one told me that. umm
    yeah mines got a bug engine in it... and its got 15000 miles on it... but its still fine.
    yeah... dude dont drop it down..>!!!! take out those seats... put a bed in the back... there are infinitely better things to do to it than make it into a souped up VW... its a chillin bus... not a racin bus...
    though once i did see this article about this guy who put this porsche engine and suspesion and brakes on a 50s bus...

    ill pm you.... just asec

    make sure you drive it. feel its karma


    ask to see pictures of it... like i saw pics of mine in cali... like after the first owner bought it... it was like lookin at baby pics.... hahahaha look at the book called... how to keep your VW running forever... by john muir... that is the ultimate book... it will tell you to check out...

    i would just get it if i were you.
    ... hehe
    yeah it gets good mileage for an older car... 20mpg... nice eh??

    Are you even kidding?!?

    No friggin way! LUCKYYYY!!!
    That's my dream van, dude. I wanna get one when I start driving, and paint murals on the sides, fill the inside with bright fushia faux fur:p and smileys and posters and maybe eventually a disco or strobe light. Then I'm gonna live my dream and just drive anywhere for a week or two, with no destination:D Can't wait!
    Woo! Congrats, man! Have fun with it and post a pic after if you choose to do stuff to it;)
