Heres a thread I started that got moved to the readers ride section. In my opinion, because sierra yellow is mainly a bus color, and the only pictures on the thread are baywindow buses, it should have stayed in this forum so people would actually see it. My point was to make a sierra yellow bus thread. Now it has gotten no love in its current spot. Sad Lots of 72s in here!

and my old 72. Greatest year of the bay window bus IMO. Excellent body lines and bumpers AND the TYPE IV engine. For those of you about to say "yeah, but it has no engine hatch", I never found that to be a problem, just an annoyance!

and heres my thread on the old girl. http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?p=4071250#4071250 May of '72 was originally sierra, my bad for changing the color. it was pretty beat, so, yeah. that was a long time ago, before these things started getting harder to find, I had no idea what I had, all i knew is that it looked cool, and simple enough I was able to get it running with no instructions at all.
