Anyone else own a VW Bus?

I often check the forums at thesamba, but some of those guys are real *******s. Just curious if anyone here has one also.

No, but my neighbor did. He got rid of it a few months ago. He did a complete restore on it. Looked nice. I might have a pic of it somewhere.

I'd like to see any if you have some. Do you know if it was an old split window or a single front window?

Are you bus-hunting? There are several around Dallas. Splits (1967 and older) as well as Bays (1968 and newer)

I used to build some of the T1 engines that can be fitted in most of them. My favorite combo is a 78 full circle crank, 90.5 stroker pistons, Webcam 86 with 1.25 rockers, 1.5" exhaust, dual baby dells or Kadrons and away you go!

Heck, there are guys that adapt the 1.9 TDI to work in the ole busses! fun city!

No I picked mine up back in March.


It's a 78 Westy delux campmobile. Probably my favorite vahicle ever made.
I'm just looking to see if there was anyone else into them on the forum.

I'm thinking about doing that to this 75 I have. I have offered it to my friend in Houston but if he doesn't make a move on it, I'm going to restore and customise it. It's located outside of Lampasas TX where my parents live.

I think it was the older with the split window. I will look for pics. Give a day or two to find them.

The company I work for had a bunch of them a work vehicals, never drove them because they all broke down and they went with Vanagons and Ford work vans. They still have a pink split window (I think it's a split window) and a vanagon camper.

How long ago was this? I couldn't see any company relying on a fleet of old VW!
I could see a company using them as advertisement, like some do with the H2.
