My VW Bus was bought pretty much the way it is. I got it from some very nice clean Hippies in Irmo South Carolina. They used to own the Mr. Natural's shops in Columbia when it went out of business the van was parked in there driveway. I saw the ad in the paper and checked it out (clueless as to what i was getting into) I bought it the very next day $1000 running. The only thing needed was new brake drums on one side. I have since rebuilt the motor and have begun sanding out the rust spots and painting back what had rusted. I hope to upgrade the Engine and interior later. As for the paint its not going anywhere!
