I might be getting a aircooled bus. I'll keep you guys updated. I'm pretty excited about it (no details, just a guy who passed away had a collection of 5-6 of them and wants them to go to a good home).
Hopefully one of them is in good enough shape to justify taking home.
I'll get more details once I go look at them.
The father-in-law is doing legal work for the women, so he wants to take one to make it a "shop truck" (he owns howlawyer.com). He mentioned how I was a VW freak and in turn she was okay with me taking one as well. A little price of "on the house".
I don't know much about the lady, but I know she doesn't want to sell them, and just get them to a good home. Once I get some details on what she has, I will likely be trying to find good homes for them.
I have NO IDEA of what condition any of them are in. For all I know they are sitting outside in a backyard and are all rust buckets. Hopefully I'll get to check them out in the next couple weekends.
I really hope one is a panel. I want a panel so bad.
I might be walking into a yard full of rust too. Who knows.
My father in law doesn't even need a runner, he can just park it in front of his office with a paint job, or vinyl wrap.
I want something I can drive.
Can someone in Aurora help me out? I'm in Minneapolis and am interested in buying a car at a dealer there (Valley Honda).
Just need someone to give the car a quick once over and look for any interior wear/tear, paintwork or panels replaced, etc....
PM me if you can help! I'll pay someone for their time.

This might be inappropriate.... but I work at a Engine & Chassis company in Woodstock, IL; we're having an Open House event tomorrow from 11am-3pm and you're invited.
We build chassis for anything. Our off-the-shelf stuff is for classic muscle cars, but we can adapt our G-Machine Chassis to fit any car. Yes, we can put a full frame on your unibody car (without adding noticeable weight). You can body-drop your car as low as you want and still have perfect geometry that's proven on the race-track.
Anyway.. here's the info and event link:
