you mean coke? right?


Which kind of coke? Mountain Dew, Dr Pepper, or regular? Smile


You sound like you're from Georgia. Only place I've heard of non-coke drinks described as Coke. Very Happy

Coke, pop, soda, soft drink. It's funny how this simple drink has so many names, just within the US.


Peecee69 South Carolina is right next door, if you look at the map, north up, for you it would be left Smile


Mandraks, I'm very familiar with US geography. but thanks for that. Never stopped in SC long enough to hear anyone refer to all carbonated drinks as coke, only GA. I figured that's common in GA since it's the home of Coke.

Same here in Alabama. It's funny the things you grow up hearing and thus say without giving a second thought until you are an adult and think to yourself "This really doesn't make sense." Laughing

Wonder what the story was on the brand new 15 window poptop. Could you imagine making those cuts? Barf.


I missed that the Bus on the right side was a 15-Window but I think someone was saying that's just a roof-top tent so hopefully no hacks.

This is my '66 that I had just bought, it was 1971 and I drove it to Florida from Chicago with a new girlfriend (actually, we are married now). Only mishap was a starter going out, found a used one at a junk yard.

Yes, I think about that a lot with all of the bugs and buses I've owned over the years. That one was only 5 years old but pretty beat when I bought it from a tradesman. I probably only paid a few hundred bucks for it. Back then, I wasn't driving these things because they were "cool VW Buses", never even though about that, it was because they were cheap boxes that held all of my art supplies and were easy to fix!

But, yeah, the front windows were caulked because they leaked, the middle seat was missing and if there was a driving rain, it poured in through the top vents. Good times.

Was painting bus bumpers black a thing back in the early 70s ?

My 65 Westy had the black bumper treatment when I got it and also the metal around the lower 1/3 of the windshields is blacked out.
