Ooooh, a Splitty! Nice.

I have a '68 VW Bus (T2a) that is a former Swiss military edition, a '72 VW Bus (T2b) that I converted to electric power. Eventually, I bought my original favorite car, a Super Beetle Convertible from '72, but it was a horrible junker. It's still sitting in my garage though, waiting to get restored :-/ . It was amazing to see how that beautiful model that I loved so much as a kid, 36 years later feels so tiny and unsafe to me... .

I was taking my mother to work and after I dropped her off I was going to my work, set off find but coming down a long hill the brakes gave up. Down at the bottom of the his is a set of lights at a major highway. In the end we went straight across and finally got it stopped in a farmers pasture. Needless to say neither of us went to work and a couple days after I got it back from the shop I sold it. That was the last VW I ever owned....
