Minibus Roadtrip Time!




So, I kinda got a free car. I picked up this VW bus on Labor Day for free, but paid 200 dollars to get it to SD. It needs some help, but by summer, my roomie and I should have an awesome ride for a nationwide road trip. It has a camper interior and my RD is reupholstering the interior for free! I love the bed, the curtains, the fridge, the sink and the little picnic table inside. It's so cute!

We'll have one of the two engines running strong very soon, and I've got to take the pink slip in to AAA to get insurance. I'm going out on a limb here, but those of you who know my love for mechanics know that this is like Spidey shaking hands with Mary Jane. As Fish would say, you can't beat a price like "free" dollars. Any name suggestions for her/him?

Ooo. Way to go, Spiff. You've got a fun project ahead of you. And I really love "Old Glory." It's got a lot of age to it but self-respect also.

Jav, what were you trying to say? It's ok, just take a deep breath, finish chewing your food and tell us what you meant by that last comment.
