Re: 52 Barndoor Samba for sale

Maybe just lock the thread if people are falling out? Only thing that annoys me is that I don't have the cash need to buy it, as if I did I would certainly be happy paying £100k + for it. If he has had offers at that level, it's worth it, simple. And as already pointed out its a drop in the ocean co...

Re: $19,000 and reserve not met

I like it! I think it looks nice, a good job has been done on the inside and I'd drive it. Different strokes for different folks. I'm not a fan of the black lowered thing with the engine inside the bus (in the middle I mean!) that's on Facebook right now, personally think its horrendous, but some l...

Re: $19,000 and reserve not met

Agree with the comments re wooden tailgate. Kinda looks like a quick fix at the end when they ran out of ideas. Deluxe trim on the nose only looks slightly weird to me too :? Either have it all the way round or not at all... But I have no problem with the muscle motor panel van :D (Might be a bit h...

Re: $19,000 and reserve not met

i have no idea why he didnt just refurb an existing DC? seems like a lot of work for nothing really? I know the good condition DCs are fetching good money in the US currently (look on the Samba 30-70k!) but surely he could pick up a ratty one for less than $10k and spend his money on that?

Re: Zotzenbach 1972

My dad used to do quite a few hill climbs a few years ago, along with regular track stuff, but in TRs. I used to love the hill climbs.
