  1. Not only the design studio that's at fault, the brain dead people who approved it for production are as much to blame. What a waist of a wonderful slant 6.
  2. One thing I was told by a first responder about those vans, "just remember your going to be the first one to the accident". He had to remove someone from one of those vans after a wreck and he said the the front end was basically shoved right into the front seat. The only thing separating you from the rear of the next vehicle is some very thin sheet metal and the steering column. I must be a Bone Head because I still like them.
  3. It looks to be an early 70's VW van. Otherwise known as a type 2. I had one very similar to it except it was blue and white. Mine was a 1970 and except for the color looked like your photo. I sure enjoyed driving that thing but my wife didn't as she kept jumping curbs when cornering. 🙄
  4. My 30 DeSoto is known as June Bug. If the bug had wheels there is a remote resemblance.
  5. The down side is the colors. I've never been a fan of Pepto-Bismol.

  8. Not too bad. It was only doing about 15mph.
  9. Congratulations on the sale. Hopefully the young man will finish the project and develop a life long interest in old vehicles. Hopefully it won't turn into another hotrod.
  10. Price seems reasonable but the interest here will be near zero.
  11. Purely speculation. Exceptional or higher end cars are going to continue to increase in value. Cars like mine are going to remain stable or decrease in value. Average projects are going to have a hard time finding buyers.
  12. If that car is in the condition it appears to be in I could live with that seat and the price seems fair.
