88,000 mile Westfalia with many thousands of dollars of parts and countless labor in 2011 including a photo album and file of receipts and owner documentation from 1977. This bus was never abandonded and then restored. It has been in light use since new and wore it's original paint until 2011. It has since only been used for one overnight and less than 200 miles total.  I have included two pictures to show the bus before it recieved the following:
new paint

bodywork with three small metal patches
new windshield 
new canvas top with screens and top moulding
four new tires
new muffler
Fuel system: rebuilt tank ($550), new sending unit, grommets, new pump, filter, clamps, remove and clean injectors, new injector seals, flush, clean, & test entire system.
Ignition system: wires, plugs, alternator belt, battery, vacuum hoses, clean & adjust points, check timing.
Odds & Ends: sandblasted and painted rims (need touch up now), windshield seal, hoses, new OEM taillight housings and lenses, GE headlight bulbs, 2 side markers, window crank handles, 3 Westfalia OEM cabinet handles, restuff front seats, new carpeting, remove and wash all upholstery except rear bench which was carpet cleaned in place, rubber front floor mat (under carpet), and God only remembers what else. 
This bus starts up immediately and runs strong. Clutch, transmission, linkages, brakes, steering all work great. 
Currently the blinkers and four way flashers do not work. The heater controls are also non functioning. Oddly, It only sometimes drips a small amount of oil.
I also have an original Westfalia tent that IS NOT included in this auction.  I wasn't sure if the next owner of the camper would be interested in one. I timed the auction to end shortly after the auction for this bus.
This auction is open worldwide. Bidders with 90% or less positive feedback or no feedback WILL be deleted unless you contact me BEFORE bidding.

Brazil contemplates safety exemption for VW Kombi as it goes out of production today [w/poll]

Tue, 31 Dec 2013 09:45:00 EST

Brazil: the country of carnivals, indescribable beauty adjacent to abject poverty, Ayrton Senna and old Volkswagen models. Only they're not old - they're new, they're just based on old designs. The original Beetle continued production there long after it had been phased out elsewhere, but the original Kombi van has lasted much longer. That ends today, however, with the iconic VW Microbus ambling out of production on the last day of 2013.
VW kept making the van in Brazil with the original air-cooled 1.2-liter boxer four until 2005, after which the original design was updated with a 1.4-liter water-cooled engine. Today, however, it ultimately falls prey to safety regulations that mandate that all vehicles - no matter how old their design - need to have airbags and ABS, forcing Volkswagen do Brasil to cease production of the Microbus after a 56-year production run. But the latest word is that the Kombi (as it's presently known) could get a stay of execution - or at least a resurrection in short order.
According to reports, the Brazilian government is looking into granting the Type 2 Microbus an exemption from said safety regulations, reasoning that the van was designed long before the advent of airbags and ABS. If the measure goes through, the Kombi Last Edition (pictured above) could prove not to be the last at all. So what do you think, should the Microbus get an exemption from Brazilian safety regulations for nostalgia's sake? Vote in our poll below, then have your say in Comments.

Toyota reclaims global sales crown, GM and VW not far behind

Mon, 28 Jan 2013 10:15:00 EST

TheDetroitBureau.com reports Toyota has retaken the global sales crown. The Japanese automaker turned out 9.75 million vehicles last year, putting it just ahead of General Motors, with 9.29 million vehicles. Volkswagen, meanwhile, filled out the podium by building 9.1 million units in 2012.
Still, Toyota numbers fell just below projections the automaker made earlier in the year, due largely to a fierce territorial dispute between Japan and China that has seen mainland buyers shun Japanese goods. But the news marks a substantial comeback for Toyota. The company fell to third place in the global production race in 2011 after tragic earthquake and tsunami caused several plant closures.
In Japan, Toyota enjoyed a sales increase of 35 percent over the previous year, while the company's worldwide sales jumped by 23 percent thanks in part to new additions to the Prius line. The automaker is forecasting yet another increase for 2013, with the company projecting to reach 9.91 million units this year. Neither Volkswagen nor GM have released their own projections just yet.

UK auto magazine says this is the best car commercial of all time [w/videos]

Thu, 20 Dec 2012 12:45:00 EST

There have been many great car commercials over the years, but is it possible to define the best? Well, Ad Week recently took a crack at it by rating the top commercials of the year by looking at their view counts on YouTube, but Auto Express took a more democratic approach by putting the decision to a vote. Just after Thanksgiving, Auto Express came up with a list of the 20 popular commercials, and it tasked its readers with choosing the winner for the best car ad of all time. The winner? Honda's 2003 commercial for its then-new European Accord titled "The Cog."
While the ad never aired in the US, most car people have surely seen the impressive Rube Goldberg-style spot. In fact, the only commercial on this list that we saw on US television was the Volkswagen ad "The Force," but many of the others have become viral videos, including transforming and dancing Citroën C4. Of the 19 other commercials that vied for the title of best ad of all time, only the Ford Puma "Steve McQueen" commercial gave Honda a run for its advertising money.
Scroll down to watch Auto Express' top five commercial in order and to check out a press release, then let us know some of your favorite car commercials in Comments.
