    Default LOWMonroe: VW Bus

    Hi LOWMonroe: here. This is our summer project, a 1971 Volkswagen Bus.

    A new engine will be ordered within the next few days. The car currently does not run so that has to be dealt with firsthand

    The interior looks minty fresh. I'm jealous of this thing.

    Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.

    Good to see another bus owner, You have a great platform to have some fun! You dont have to go through a whole lot before mods like i did due to the body mine had, and the mechanical condition it was in.
    Have fun with this thing, its tons of fun(mine is anyway)

    I was planning on ordering a motor from gex.com basically just the stock one for the 71 model. Really not looking for performance as long as it runs good and is semi reliable.

    Yes sir this is a little different to us because its obviously not a honda. But we will make it happen. And yes it will be static as are the majority of our builds
