So the wife said " I want..................."

A old VW camper bus. After I woke up from my coma we found one. It looks really bad but it is solid in all the right places and complete minus a engine. Kinda need one of those. She does embroidery and makes quilts and such (her side business) so she will make most of the interior stuff. We are going to pull out the sink/fridge combo and make a shelf for her sewing stuff and make a table for a machine so she can make stuff at shows. It is going to be a project but we are not restoring it to perfect, just usable. Picked it up for $500 with new doors, bumper and everything else that has been taken off.

Fun stuff! Big bore VW engine would be cool.
I'd like to see a Olds Toro set up, eighties style w/O.D. and a 403.
Hidden of course.
