No on slider. You figured that out in 1980 and you were right.

Making a fair buck on something is one thing but asking 20k plus for a hacked panel or project 13w bus that you beat the owner up on his 2,500$ asking price is nothing but pure greed. Not referring to any bus particular, I just hear story after story from people I guess thinking I'll be impressed by how they are ripping people a new asshole


I bet if nobody was asking big money for these buses you wouldn't be able to sell yours for the prices you ask... $4500 for a rusted panel, logos washed off, missing the safaris and cut bulkhead ain't no bargain homie.


I think $4500 for a slider panel is a very fair price even if it is rusted to hell. If it was a deluxe it would go for a lot more, but slider's are way rarer.

Rare doesn't always translate into desirable.

Depending on your retirement needs and investment in other equities, you may be ok.

If your Panel is your only source for retirement income, you will have an issue.

That's funny. It looks like they did a good job, but why start off as an A hole in your for sale listing.. If you don't want some low ball offer, just give it a starting price. I always equate "offers" to, "I'm flexible". But It seems he means it more as, "I'm an.... "

Ok, you got me whining now, why go ape poop on a DD panel? Couldn't they find a 23w and hack in a door easier & cheaper?

Would love to know if it really sells and if to anyone with a sense of dignity.

Yes. it's a well known fact that as the male ages the scrotum tends to relax and sag down further. Hence the term " Low baller" I have no idea why the sellers on this site want to discriminate aginst these older males by stating in their ads " No low ballers" Confused

It looks like a really nice job. My biggest problem with his ad is that he dosn't want anyone asking how the conversion was done. if your going to spend six figures on a bus weather it be real or a clone you deserve full disclosure. If you have confidence in your product and feel it is priced appropriatly you don't mind telling all.

Interior pictures are a no brainer, for any car sales... 55k for a westy with zero interior pictures. Really

http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=1652400

edit: interior included, but not installed. What you can buy for 50 grand these days?

There was a local auction down here last night with a 1960 23 window walk thru up for grabs.
Went pretty well with a new Aussie price record set. AUD$202,000.
Here is the auction:
