The Vans History

There are a couple of things mentioned in the VW Speed article but not shown in the magazine. For those of you who found this site via the article here comes a short flick through my pics archive. You can find lots more bus build pics in old posts on this blog.
Shiny pics from France

No need for major work?

No need to worry from the outside...

...and the hidden view after I removed the interior.

Professionally welded front beam.

This was the point where I thought about selling the project!

Steel ropes within hard plastic. WTF???

Finally in primer!

My 3D Model I used for designing the interior.
The plywood construction under the panels

The mentioned subwoofer within the side cabinet.

No, not a table, another side cabinet!
The current look.

VW Speed feature

Just received the latest issue of VW Speed and do like it! They even added a wallpaper of my bus. Thanks Ansgar for pics and text! Will be available in the shops within a few days. Won't upload the  article as long as the issue is available in the shops, so you better go and buy your own copy :)

The $300.000 Fake 21w

I guess most of you have heard about the latest Barrett-Jackson auction and the new bus price world record. Somebody paid over $300K for a 13 window deluxe with a slapped samba roof, plain insane! This custom bus was build by Dave Kindig, well known in the US via his 'bitchin rides' TV show. So obviously somebody REALLY wanted to own one of his creations. You can't deny the level of finish though! No Barndoor, no real deal, not even 23 windows, but a very nice bus! All pics from the Kindigit Facebook page. TheSamba.com thread here.

Targa Bay

I think you all know this crazy custom bay, but have you also seen any build pics? I searched for more pics, when I first saw this bay a few years ago, but never found any. Check Jo's Fab Lab on Facebook for more!
