Awesome Classic — Fun to restore, fun to drive, ladies love it :) Not a performance car what so ever! i average about 21mpg. top speed is 55mph and 0-55 in about 25ish seconds haha! I love taking it to car shows and posting up at the local drive up restaurants. i rebuilt the engine to 1776cc, it is a substantial difference in speed and accel.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Awesome, stylish, fun

Cons: No top-end speed, slow accel, maintenance

I thave two Identicle twin Westfalia camper projects I have been neglecting. Restoring two cars at the same time costs twice as much. They are both drivabable but in need of my time..Excellant for road trips and camping.
