this is my 1966 VW Bus named Mango!
I only waited 52 years to get one!!!
But it was worth the wait. I found this
little jewel in Amarillo TX. "Sweet
Pickles" was its name, sitting
in a garage in pretty nice condition,
but not running.. just needing to be
had a vision for this Bus from day one.
As you can see the sort of finished
product. Are you ever finished?? What
started as a just going to paint over
the blue and change wheels turned into
this.. with a lot of help from my good
friend Shane Quickle, this is how it
color on top called Alaska white, and
the lower color is Mango Tango Pearl
along with new belt line trim, addition
of the full rack, powder coated bumpers,
rocker rust repair, freshening up the
1776cc with seals, paint and some pretty
bolt ons, and then a complete new custom
interior by L and B upholstery that
came out, Perfect!!!! Then throw in
some bamboo mats and headliner from
Jason at Bamboom Wagons and "Dang"
near perfection!!!! As far as I'm concerned!!!
off to get a Altitude adjustment, by
Patrick at S O A Speedshop in Springfield
MO. with a new adjustable beam, drop
spindles, narrowed torsion housings,
long axle Bug tranny, notched spring
plates..Now, this old Bus is sitting
just right and rides great!!!
on 145's up front and 195/65/15's on
the rear. I'm quite proud to call this
VW bus, Mine!!! Thanks for reading about
my VW, There are a lot of cool ones
out there, so get out and go check them
out at shows and on the street.. see
you down the road!!!
