That said, I really don't see how these can be finished to a decent standard for under $100K. Sure, the price of admission is low, but these will need everything except rust repair.

I bet there will be people here who look at their rusty piles of crap, evaluate how much funky green it's going to take, and decide to just cut out the VIN and weld it in to the new one instead of slo ...

Barn fresh!

I finally got the 1960 double-door panel driving again. New brakes, starter, throwout bearing, etc, etc. I hadn't diven it in 5 or 6 years. I'm probably going to end up selling it. ...

How about pop-out skylight windows?

Take that and run with it Foose.


There was a bus in the whines a few years ago with popout skylights

Your answer lies in the number 23.

So it has to be prime?

I installed a set of these on a friend's bus a year or so ago. IIRC they're made by Dansk. The quality is "so-so" - they are lighter than the originals because the metal is a lot thinner, ...

I've been working on the roof of my '57 23-window, and I got to thinking: why did the factory not add 2 more roof windows over the last two side windows?

That got me to thinking why the 2 rear-mo ...

I love my '57 356A, and I paid less for it than what some buses of a similar vintage are going for. I sold my '56 Ghia and '52 bug to trade up.

Kinda weird that I ended up with 3 1957 cars, all wi ...
