Split Screen Scene and copyright

What's the score with Split Screen Scene using one of my photos without permission in their Canterbury Pitt article and failing to credit me? Just because I've linked to my photo via the SSVC forum does that automatically give unconditional permission to use a photograph? There's a PM button on the ...

Re: Please HELP, Which Distributor???

Steer clear of the MSD distributor - non plated internal parts will rust in days in the UK climate and end up destroying the distributor. I know this from first hand experience. Was that a genuine MSD unit, as I know there are chinese fakes out there.... Genuine bought from the States back in 2006....

Re: IRS driveshafts too long ??

And they will still be too long. Maybe you'll get away with it if your bus isnt too low.

It's been discussed at length here:

Re: This is why ive always had an aircooled vdub !

Check out the clothing :-) Great photo Kev. Your dad hasnt changed in 37 years, amazing. The only thing that has changed is his clothing as he now has a tendancy to wear bright lycra (I kid you not). Nice to see he's still kept his clothes from that photo and given them to you to wear on a daily ba...

The bus is running on Beetle IRS.
Sounds like you need a bigger engine or need to go back to reduction boxes.

A 1600TP fully laden camper with IRS is never going to pull up hills.

As a microbus I would imagine it was a 15 window?. I knew it wasn't a Samba when i bought it as it didn't have any of the deluxe bits
Doubt it was a 15 window if it didn't have the deluxe bits.

Re: 1957 11 window california import Sunroof model

Centre brake light and high rear tail lights suggest its earlier than a 59. Suspect it's 57 as per advert but with later bumpers fitted.

Tidy bus btw. Good luck with the sale.
