1965 Volkswagen MicrobusReview
Join The Vw Bus Cult! — We cut out the wheel wells and put 11L-15 tru-tracks on it to drive it on the beach. We even pulled out a stuck jeep with it. It had a pop-up canvas top and a '70 1600cc engine. We converted it to 12 volts - which made the wipers go like blazes.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: it would go through mud you wouldn't believe
Cons: the heater worked great - only in the summer.
