George, i can't work out if it's the two genuine vehicles that have been f@@ked up or the colour co-ordinated wheels, those converted fronts or the matching colour co-ordinated interiors that are upsetting me so. I was going to go and have a lie down hoping it was a bad dream and all will be ok in the morning, somehow i doubt it will be ................ :wink:

I've racked my brains and tried my very hardest to understand what went through the persons mind when he/she had these ideas. I came to the conclusion drugs may have been used ................ :?: :wink:

Phew, i've forced myself to read the ad properly, they are from Indonesia, i should have recognised them by the colours although to be fair i couldn't make out tinted windows which is a bit of a giveaway :wink:

I might be wrong again but these won't sell quickly will they :?: :wink:

"based on an original Fleetline (south american bus) VW Bay window"

So many things wrong in one sentence.

"has the bay window engine which runs a little better than a splitty"

Umm...

"minimal bubbling" ... "Not owned her for long" ... "sold as seen" ... " been stood for a while" ... "Mileage is kind of unknown"

Right...

Just realised, its the very same Bus I first moaned about when it appeared on The Samba. Thankfully 6months down line it still hasn't sold. We should have an ' avoid at all costs ' list so some poor un-suspecting good soul doesn't burn 18K on this :(

I presume the owner is keeping its ' twin ' :D
