I'm new to the Samba, so I am introducing myself and my '74 Bay Window Bus. I've only had the bus a short while, but I have history with it from the late '70s when my "bus buddy" owned the bus. I had a different one, but we worked on them together and shared our interest driving around etc. After all these years, I now own the bus I remember so well from long ago. The bus is in progress, with a current focus on getting the suspension sorted and the mechanicals serviced, and attending to the minor rust areas.
Yes, it has a Porsche 911 engine.

Welcome. Looks like you have a Kombi, solid glass on middle and rear windows. The Porsche engine is cool. Others, including me will want to see more.

I like how it's modified, but still German.
