Low key??

That guy's a helicopter pilot now.......

Quote:
At least two outfits provide helicopter tours of Mount St. Helens. Applebee Aviation (http://www.applebeeaviation.com/tours.htm) offers three different rides starting at $149. My wife selected the $249 “Awesome Combo,” a 45-minute adventure that is inadequately named and under-priced. At Eco Park Resort on that mind-blowing Saturday afternoon, I joined two other thrill-seekers in a Bell 206B Jet Ranger piloted by Patrick Hall, who doubled as an amiable, expert narrator.

Yes but they were actually water transfer decals not handpainted.

whos scab is that? thats fuckin BAD ASS. love the safari rear, but no safari fronts. Perfect.
Im not a big fan of the flappy windows myself. Confused


That was on the way to the Red Barn before Kelly part. Patrick had just picked up skim and I from the air port in Sac town the night before, we spent the majority of the time working on Patricks front end that night as I remember. I look that picture rolling with Izzy and Brotha Dave in Daves mopar wagon(I think thats what it was). Great times.

Definitely 101 North near Morgan Hill (hills in the background to the east)

I believe you have just been called a liar Trayle.

If you were with Brotha Dave AND Izzy in a station wagon you were gagged and hog tied. No way you could have taken a picture.

Plus if he was with Izz and Brother Dave that picture would have been taken with one hand since he probably would have had a Red Stripe beer in the other hand.

Great work, Ken. I found this blog few days ago; your skills are amazing.
I own a 1954 25A (so mine would be the seventh).
I think one detail on your bus is not quite right: Kombis with sunroof do have a roof-panel: if I was able to post pics here, I would show you my bus.
So look at http://vintagebus.com/ click Parts Manuals, then 3. Typ II VW Parts Reference (1950 - 1954), then Main Group 8, page 403 and 404.
Btw: please let us participate in your latest project! Shocked

Thanks, It was a lot of work, and I did have help.

I'm not sure what to make of the "trimmings" it would be really helpful if you had some pictures of yours. you could email them to me as well [email protected]

It was one year ago today that I rolled the old girl into the shop for the start of the restoration. Seemed fitting to put a final touch on today. It's a Canada only rear decal. It's a dry transfer type reproduced by Chris Murray. Thanks Chris!
