This Month's Feature VW

Mango Tango!

Well, 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 loved.

I 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 came out.

New 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!!!

Then 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!!!

Rollin 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!!!
