Anyone shipping a bus to the States (need a bonnet sent)?

Does anyone know a way i can get a Beetle bonnet to the USA?

Or a shipper/postal company that will deal with that size parcel?
Maybe someone here has a bus going over there? A contribution would be made.

Thank you for any advice

Re: ***SSVC Display at the Volksworld Show***

You can tell it's a new era for the show.
Book online (price up), & don't get warned they are charging you a booking fee.

Re: earliest prototype VW Bus?

Word is:

Just the first prototype was built on a Beetle chasssis. It failed.
So this inital prototype was rebuilt with a stronger bespoke 'ladder' chassis, recognisable to the split ones we know.

The following 7 (tbc) prototypes used this stronger chassis.

Re: Some old pics found... 1988/9

Superb son. A pal did similar at a very similar time. Ahead of the game. 2 local (Bedford area) uk rhd splits within a few months. I remember one being £400, fresh MOT, & with 4 new tyres.

Excellent ads!

WAY more useful than the ones that just say 'Cleerout'' or 'Wheels' (quite possibly my next Pointless Bitching thread)
