Hey all!

Looking for local to Nova Scotia VW Van owners.

We're new to the whole thing and while seeing/chatting with people online about the beasts, it would be nice to see other's vans in person and chat about things.

Are they any locals on here?

We're in Dartmouth NS!

Cheers

Hello from Dartmouth NS as well!

There are a bunch of vans local to us and the NSVWCC group on FB is a good spot to start. As far as mods, DIY, customization and builds the Samba is a resource like no other! Very Happy

Here is my home built and fairly modified 1981 air-cooled westy ej25 subaru swapped, lowered on weitec springs and koni shocks, electric power steering, 240ah aux battery, diesel furnace, tuck fridge, 16" merc wheels etc.

Cheers,
Ian

That is beautiful!

Would love to check it out someday. Probably best to wait until the plague is under control haha!

The Samba is great! I'm, unfortunately, the kind of person that needs to be shown in person how to do things. Unless it's quite simple.

You're fortunate to be in Nova Scotia. Not only a beautiful part of the country, but also home to perhaps the best vanagon service anywhere in Jeffs Old Volks Home in Chester N.S. Jeff knows every nut and bolt of every Vanagon ever made and his team does more than excellent work. Jeff loves to keep the waterboxers going and on the road but is also realistic when it comes time for engine replacement and he and his team have done well over 75 vanagon conversions to diesel power. You really are fortunate to have such a resource.
