New house, new extension, my escort, new bikes, lots of things meaning I don't have the time (or interest) in the bus anymore. That engine is wasted in our bus now, the bus hasn't moved since 3rd August :( I'm not allowed to sell the bus so the engine is going instead.
Now to get a good for sale ad together :roll:

Not many !! I can take some pics for you on Friday as I'm in the lock up replacing all of my roof guttering.
Let us know what you want. I can take the rear valance off if that helps.

There is one photo in my thread here though.

um i may be missing something here but on the thread on the samba it says that they're aiming for 130mph. In shawns sig it says
"RHD '63 13 window deluxe 2276 FI turbocharged & chargecooled 323.3bhp 135.9mph @7150rpm"
so surely his is faster???
Shawn, if you're bored of it i'll look after it for you until you get your va va voom back :D :D
