Sparky is a bus made for the freeways of 2017. This road trip juggernaut has been back and forth between California and Seattle 4 times in the past 3 months and keeps up with traffic at 70mph no problem - even fully loaded and carrying 4 adults! It handles mountain passes with ease and the twists and turns of US highway 1 without issue. Super fun trips made in this Westfalia topped camper.
I've never had a bus with a VW engine that could climb hills like my suburban. Custom engine build with bigger cylinders by scuddersperformance.com makes all the difference. Has 42x37 heads, web performance cam, web hydraulic lifters and German molley pistons. I upgraded the carb and manifold here in the Seattle area thanks to George at Porbug in Edmonds. Its now a Weber 38mm two bbl. JUST REJETTED after a long road trip. Running killer.

Rare automatic so anybody can drive it. I love these automatics (i have 3 others) and so did VW, who used the same trans up through busses and into vanagons. Bullet proof little buggers.
1200$ in 4 brand new slider side windows and seals. WAY more fun for rear bench passengers and ventilation on hot days. My 4 kids love them.
Huge investment into the new custom thundercat engine (over $12k)
complete brake job
cv joints and boots
upholstery and door panels
wiper arms and blades
interior sliding handle
LED dash lights make night driving WAY better
