Salut from Midi-Pyrenees

  1. Hi all,

    Saying hello because I was the buyer of Beef's 1972 microbus. Picked it up a couple of days after Christmas and drove it straight home which is near Toulouse. Stopped at Dover and Le Mans and basically covered bit more than 800 miles in a couple of days.

    Everything about the bus was exactly as he'd said and the only slight blip was a snapped accelerator cable but luckily enough that was near the linkage so a bodged up repair got me home no trouble. Engine was sweet and I barely got through much oil.

    I'm not new to VWs (68 Beetle, 79 Devon Moonraker, 72 Danbury camper and a 98 Mexibug) but I reckon this is going to turn out to be in an all time favourite battle with the Danbury. I bought it after looking at loads of pics and having a good chat with Keith but couldn't fly over to check anything first. Says a lot about him that I got no nasty surprises at all - great to find that genuine people are still out there even though prices have got a bit silly.

    Anyway, here's a couple of pics van2.jpg if I can get it to work properly... Van1.jpg
