I always like when old busses with questionable history come up. I know practically nothing about them but always enjoy reading what's wrong with them from those that do know.
Vehicles owned (*=automatic):
Chevy: 82 Cavalier Type 10, 94 Cavalier Coupe* | Chrysler: 96 Town & Country* | Ford: 73 F100, 88 F150, 18 F150* | Jeep: 78 CJ-5 | Mazdas: 83 GLC, 85 RX7 GS, 86 323, 90 323, 90 B2600i, 92 Miata, 97 Protege, 01 B2300, 01 B3000, 04 RX8 | Nissan: 90 240SX SE | Plymouth: 88 Caravan* | Pontiac: 84 Grand Prix* | Toyota: 84 Celica GTS, 02 Tundra*
edit: apparently they go WAY higher than that. Why would anyone pay a quarter million for a vw bus is well beyond me...
this is the thread:
Honestly the buyer is a bit of a moron. Did 0 research and by sounds of things didn't even look at the vehicle, then sued the auction company and won all his money back plus legal fees. I am struggling to believe this story. Talk about dumb luck.

My memory of the time is a little foggy because there was so much change at the time and chaotic in many ways.
I'll make a new thread soon but thanks again to DerBaldGuy for posting the GLI! The deed is done and I'm currently crashing in Columbus for the night before finishing the trip back to PA tomorrow.
Not only was the seller excellent to deal with but the car is as good or better than expected and worth every penny IMO. It started right up from cold without complaint, no smoke, no noises, etc., and the A/C does actually work just like he said. It has it's fair share of rock chips but for 260k miles the car is in incredible condition. Already ordered a variety of general maintenance parts as although the PO did a few things (heater hoses, rebuilt the shifter, motor mounts, and front brakes) and there are some records, it's unclear when certain things like the timing belt were last done. It'll definitely get suspension of some sort but that's TBD for now.

One of the most non sensical "safety" features I have ever encountered. The shoulder belt never sits right on your shoulder and it is easy to forget the lap belt altogether.
My '91 has them as well but luckily I was able to find a complete setup to change to standard belts. They should be on the way to my post office now.
can't remember the last time I saw one of these anywhere... $1600
72 MB 250C - Rough to be sure...could there be any money made at $3500?
'68 Merc Montego Convertible for $7350 seems like a good value for an ice cream run car
Only thing worth money on that 250C are the bumpers if someone us backdating a 74+
My 280C was very nice looking (needed tuneup and mechanical refresh) and I couldn’t sell
For 3500 for months! Still wish I had it back
02 S6 Avant
73 914 2.0 - 2.7 conversion in progress
64 356 SC / 65 Ducati Falcon 80
99.5 A4 2.8 Q Tip - RIP taken out by a tree 19.5 after buying
GMC Savana + a TON of tools included! Great start to a new business! - $16000 (Cambridge, VT)

Listed on FB Marketplace, but probably on Craigslist...
Is this a scam? $2,200 for a 65k mile 3000 GT VR-4 seems low, honestly...
Americans hate EVs because they grew up with Power Wheels that were glacially slow, ran out of power in 20 minutes and took an entire day to recharge.
