What is The Bus Barn?

Post by Pillow » Thu Mar 08, 2007 9:53 pm

I just wanted to take a few minutes to welcome the new faces in the Bus Barn and share a little bit of what we stand for in this forum.

The Bus Barn is open to ALL VW busses! Split - Bay - Vanagon - Eurovan If you run it / restore it / or just keep them as yard art lets talk about it!

There are no flamers here so if you want to drop your bus in the weeds - that is okay here. If you want to put big brakes on it and need some help - just ask. Want to roll Dubs on your vee-dub - lets work it out.

The bus offers some unique characteristics that are not common to the other VW makes as far as engines, handling, and aerodynamics. So it is very important that information obtained on other forums is applicable to our bricks.

Stock is cool as well! So if you want to find the perfect Kamax bolt for a '59 - lets try and find it.

In summary welcome new guys and gals! And thanks to all the Bus Barn "regulars" for keeping it fun and educational over the years!

Please let me second Pillow's welcome. Thanks for dropping by. We think you will find STF and the Bus barn to be an unparalleled resource when it comes to learning about and keeping your baby on the road. And, we have some fun times along the way. Welcome.

In 1969, I went to Woodstock (yea, the music festival) in a 1967 bus. I'll never forget the music and, you know what, I'll never forget the bus!! 8)

sorry to hit you all with a problem straight up but :? , which is the prefered option for a dizzy for a type 4. I have two webber 40 idf's and have read that I should use a vacuum take off from the idf's. Where should I drill ??? I have an 009 but am unsure if it is the best, I read somewhere that this is not the best dizzy for a bus ? :roll:
