Yes, it's so. I'm really only selling it, as I don't have time to drive it. I mean I've got 7 other vehicles here, and I can't drive them all. Rolling Eyes

Yup Dave, that's Wolfie. I can at least say I kept most of my promise to Russ, in that the car did get put back together and was driven. In fact Marilyn even drove (abit a short distance) back in 2012. The only thing I didn't get to do, was let HIM drive it (he passed away before I was finished). But, I/we took him to the 2012 type 3 Invasion out in Colorado, and he returned us home safe and sound. Cool

Yes, you're right Donnie, in that car was literally rebuilt from the ground up. And while not 100% stock, it can be brought to that level with minimal work, as I have a good part of the bits already here (they go with the car, but some bits are still needed), that can go back on. Remember, I didn't go thru all that trouble to build a trailer queen, I built it to drive. Twisted Evil It's not a show car, but it does show well. Wink

Damn, that's one fine car, probably one of the very few that tempt me to jump... but I'd have to sell Clementine and I just can't quite bring myself to do so.

Hmmm, maybe I need to work on my wife to make this her midlife crisis car...

I honestly believe that Bob is short selling himself at that price.

What an iconic Type 34. This car has a provenance. Bob, I wish you were keeping it but I understand that there's a time move on.

T34 like that go here for double that if not more.

even an unrestored rusted out kg t1 go for 10k minimum here.

You're probably right Tram, but I did get to drive it, and I learned quite a bit from building it.
My problem is too many vehicles, not enough time to enjoy them. It happens. Rolling Eyes
I thought I had priced fair. A buddy of mine thought I had it priced too high, but then he's into later model GM stuff.

If I had the disposable bread it would be here now. That car is quite a bit of Samba history- besides needing to be rescued from a notch down in front! Twisted Evil Wink
