Not mine, I saw this while headed to the grocery store this weekend in West Michigan and thought you hi-toppers might appreciate seeing it. It was at a repair shop. The mechanic said a customer dropped it off and asked them to get it running for him. It has a Ford Pinto 4 cylinder motor. The top appears to be all fiberglass. If anyone on here owns it I’d love to hear more about it.

Owner says it is a "Campmobile Conversion".

Never seen one like it.
Anyone know anything about them?

Looks like it's Westfalia from the driprails down, but that brutal looking top has a real "home made" vibe going on. I doubt any business or factory would take credit for that.

Interesting... I know a guy that his dad used to have a VW shop back in the day and he was describing a bus like this one that his dad worked on/had years ago. He was out of MT pleasant, could of been. Was the rear view mirror on the dash?

OK now that’s just downright funny. Ahh, the ideas that randomly pop into your head when you are surfing TheSamba after 3 beers. Love it!
